Default BYOD questions

Ok, so I am really thinking about T-Mo's BYOD program due to the new Nexus 4 coming out. I am currently with MetroPCS and have been very happy. I have some questions though. I've been looking at their website and am not really finding good info. When I click on the BYOD it shows a family plan @ $59.99/line per month. What do I get for that? How many minutes, data, etc? When I look at the other value plans, they all talk about a 2 year contract. I'm not interested in that. I want to get a Nexus 4, get my microsim card from T-Mo and pay month to month. Can this be done? What are the prices, etc?

Thank you very much in advance.

You can find the prepaid T-Mobile plans here. The $30 "Walmart" plan is shown there which gives 100 minutes, unlimited texts and "unlimited" data (5GB before it is throttled).

FYI, the "Value" plans are also priced around you either bringing your own device, or buying one at full price. The only downside is they require a 2-year contract. They used to just require you to pay an activation fee, which was a lot more attractive. I'm not sure why they changed that.

Value plans are basically Classic plans, but without the markup to cover subsidizing a device.

Monthly 4G (prepaid, no contract) is the way I'd go, but if they don't have a plan that does it for you, you may want to check out the Value ones.
