T-Mobile USA has unveiled its new pricing strategy, as well as launched its LTE network and confirmed the start of iPhone sales.

LTE data can be added for USD 20 per month more. A second phone line with the same plan is USD 30 per month, and each additional line is USD 10 per month. To add another 2 GB of data, customers pay USD 10 per month more per line. Phones cost extra, and can be paid upfront or in interest-free installments.
