    Has The “Un-Carrier” Changed Me?

    Has The “Un-Carrier” Changed Me?-540x177xtmoheader.jpg


    A few months ago, I decided on my own accord, that I would pick up an unlocked Galaxy Nexus and give the “Un-Carrier” a fair try. When I started I was concerned. I know from my brother having the service when he lived around me, it wasn’t great. Boy, was I surprised. Not only was the service better than I was expecting, some places had better service than my other carrier, Verizon Wireless.
    With Verizon Wireless, I have a grandfathered plan. Unlimited data, unlimited text and 450 mins of peak hours talk time. The plan I chose to try on T-Mobile was the 500MB 4G data, unlimited 2G data, unlimited text and unlimited talk. The comparison is a little off here, but essentially T-Mobile is unlimited everything and Verizon Wireless is not. Let’s talk about costs, since that’s what we are interested in; cost and coverage. For $50+ local and federal taxes and fees, T-Mobile’s plan is quite a bargain if I’m honest. My grandfathered plan is ~$100.

    My area is Cape Cod Massachusetts.

    And just FYI 500MB of 4G data, and unlimited 2G data, is unlimited data.

    Sorry, I have to disagree as well. To me, unlimited data is both unlimited quantity and un-crippled speeds. If I am forced to 2G (or else I incur charges for 4G) then it is not unlimited. Just my two cents.

    From what I understand, you don't incur overage charges. For the OP's example above (500 MB 4G data and unlimited 2G data), what would happen is you would get 4G speeds until you hit the 500 MB limit and then after that you would be throttled to 2G speeds for the remainder of the billing cycle.

    Yes what are your 2g data speeds. Can you toggle to 2g so as not to waste the 4g?

    On TMobile, you can have unlimited 4G (HSPA+) speeds on TMobile for $70 a month. $50 is 500MB + 2G, $60 is 2GB + 2G. My wife is going to be going to TMobile this week to give it a try and see how coverage is in our area. If it works out, I'll be going there too when my AT&T contract is up. She is on verizon. If their HSPA+ is close to AT&Ts HSPA, it'll be more than enough.
