T-Mobile to axe grandfathered plans starting in November

Long-time T-Mobile customers who still enjoy the privileges of plans no longer offered by the company will soon have to say goodbye to them. That's the word confirmed by T-Mo to Engadget.

All the details are yet to be announced, but T-Mobile has confirmed that affected customers will get "similar or better features at a comparable price." The transition should begin in November, and customers are being given until the beginning of February to jump ship to another carrier without risking any penalties.

In a statement provided to Engadget, T-Mobile says that "simple is better," so it's reducing the number of older plans it maintains.
