T-Mobile Customers Can Keep Their Unlimited Data Plans

You must read between the hidden agenda lines of Fierce Wireless' report that T-Mobile USA is quietly eliminated its $30 per month unlimited data plan for smartphones and adding four new tiered data plans.  However, Fierce Wireless did not provide the important details in their report that should say existing customers can keep their unlimited data plans.  I called customer service today to confirm that existing customers who have the $30 unlimited data plans can keep them.  The service rep told me I can keep the plan.  However, if you make changes to your plan please read the fine print or ask customer service if you will lose the unlimited data plan.  If you are like me and tether your iPad to your G2 phone this is great news. This is just another reason you Don't Buy T-Mobile's Even More Plus Data Plan because you will lose your grandfathered unlimited data plans.

T-Mobile told Fierce Wireless that if customers go over their allotted data caps they will not incur overage charges but instead will have their data speeds throttled down to an EDGE, or 2G, experience of around 100 Kbps or less. T-Mobile customers with smartphones can now select from the following new options:
  • $10 for 200 MB per month
  • $20 for 2 GB
  • $30 for 5 GB
  • or $60 for 10 GB
According to a T-Mobile spokeswoman, customers will be notified via a free text message when they exceed their monthly data threshold. At that time, they will have the option to change their data plan to one with more data or continue to use their existing plan with the reduced speeds for the remainder of the month.  This is great customer service compared to AT&T and Verizon who charge you extra for going over your data plans without notice.  Read more: T-Mobile kills unlimited data, unveils new tiered data plans for smartphones - FierceWireless
