T-Mobile Offers ‘Free Facebook’ to PrePaid Customers Without Data Plans

gosmartCellular company T-Mobile is trying its best to accumulate new customers – the mobile wireless provider is now offering free Facebook access to its prepaid customers without data plans. The deal is for its GoSmart users ( starting at $25/mo) who will be able to access a slower, free version of Facebook using their phones starting in January of 2014.

Since GoSmart users who have data comes with unlimited access, the free Facebook access will be unnoticeable for those on the 3G data network. Additionally, T-Mobile is rumored to be luring new customers by paying off their cancellation fees with other carriers. Subscribers of other cellular service will get up to $350 credit to switch from rival carriers, with up to five lines of service per family.
