It was an add on promotion for ONE plans I got in 2017 when I signed up for my plan. It gave 256kbps data roaming, 10Gb 4G hotspot and a few other upgrades. It has not been available for a long time. I was able to get it added to the last 3 free lines I got by calling in and politely asking customer service to add it since all the other lines on my account had the +Promo. So those lines now are alternate data lines when roaming.

I just switched from One to Magenta Max 55+ which will be $10 less per month. Got Viasat(?) on a recent three-hour Delta flight - noticeable improvement over the old Gogo experience.

I'm not 55+, but I'm assuming only the account holder needs to be 55+ to be eligible? A supplemental account holder who is 70+ won't help me qualify?

Contact T Mobile and please let us know what they say. BTW their Social media teams are very efficient and responsive

Back when we did it, one of the 2 people had to be 55+. We had to go to a physical store to switch back then. Not sure if they still require that or not.

Is there a contradiction here? I want to add my dad to the account as a secondary user. I'll be paying the bill. Obviously, I want to use him to help me get a discount.

A single 55+ person can sign up with an additional such line/number for their adult child, minor child or even minor grandchild. Maybe the adult child could do the same too for a 55+ parent on the adult child’s own account, but I haven’t crossed that bridge.

I know that, but I want to be the primary account holder.

Perhaps your question will be best answered by T-Mobile directly if the answers here are unable to provide you with the information your seeking

My understanding of the 55+ thing is that we can’t get it because we have 4 lines, not two..

55+ Essentials is limited to 2 lines. 55+ Magenta is allowed to have 4 lines.

I switched from AT&T to the 55+ plan and did the entire process via Twitter DM. I was never asked my age.
