T-Mobile rolls out new plans for people who just want to date a little, don't want to get too serious.

I'm so glad that there's a major wireless carrier who resembles that girl I really liked in college. Sigh.

Ringo's new plans let you sign up by the month or even the day. Because maybe you're not sure if this is the right plan for the next two years. Maybe you wonder if T-Mobile will even be around in two years. Maybe T-Mobile wonders if T-Mobile will be around in two years. We know the Mayans were dubious.

$60 gets you unlimited calls, texts, and data though the data gets throttled after 2GB.

From Engadget:

If a month of commitment is too rich for your blood, how about about one of three new "pay by the day" plans? The priciest option's three bucks for all the minutes and texts you could ever want and 200MB of data at full speed. A dollar less still gets you unlimited talk time and texts, but slows that all you can eat data buffet down to 2G speeds. True cheapskates (or those who only communicate via the written word) will love the dollar daily plan, which grants boundless texting, but dispenses the data altogether and runs ten cents per minute for phone calls.
