Between Boost Mobile's $50 unlimited plan (or $60 if you're working with a BlackBerry), StraightTalk's offerings, Common Cents Mobile, and the like, the prepaid industry is doing quite well.  To that end, T-Mobile today announced two new prepaid plans ___.  The "$15 Per Month Unlimited Text" plan will offer unlimited text, picture, and video messaging, along with nationwide calling for $.10 per minute; the "$50 Per Month Unlimited Talk and Text" will offer unlimited text, picture, and video messaging, along with unlimited nationwide calling.

The new plans will be available on Wednesday (the 19th).  I have to give T-Mobile a lot of credit here, because I think the two new prepaid plans will do exceptionally well across the board.  For the texting teen (who never talks on a regular basis anyway), the $15 monthly plan would make for a perfect - and cheap - alternative to adding a line on the family postpaid account.  For those that don't want to sign a long-term contract, the $50 monthly plan would make for a great option - and it's cheaper than anything I've seen in the postpaid department.

Needless to say, the prepaid battle is in full swing, and people seem to be responding.  I'll be interested to see (a) how the new plans perform in the long-term, and (b) how the postpaid providers respond.  Care to render a guess in the comments section?
