    This is the screen that I get. So current monthly plan total is $55 before taxes, but with the UDP, it's an extra $20 (not counting discount since that isn't available on unlimited plan)! That's insane!! I could go to Tmo and pay the flat $70, which saves at least $15 + taxes for VZW UDP.

    I misunderstood I thought you were paying $85 now ....if your bill is $55 then yes

    I am paying $85 right now (taxes included). But what your screen and mine shows, it's $81-85 (before taxes). So it'll come up to $100 or so for the UDP.

    Doesn't T Mobile let you use their service on a part time basis, as if you were a tourist for a week or two? Pay as you go for a couple weeks, that way you could give it a trial run before committing.

    I wish more American companies went with the European style of including tax in THE EFFING PRICE. It just makes better sense

    Just another update. My daughter has used 34 GB already in 16 days. Way over the 22 GB possible throttling limit. I just setup my old Turbo 2 for her as a "new" phone and did all the setup and app updates over cell 4G data and it was definitely still 4G speeds, no throttling noticed.

    The fine print at the bottom of the television commercials say new device purchase required.
    (I admit that I haven't paused the screen to read the entire thing) Has anyone switched to this plan without purchasing a new device?

    I did... Not even a little problem... No throttling so far, at Disney I thought it might be but then I realized that it was probably just a huge amount of people and I wasn't over 22gb yet.

    I did also. The day it was announced. I think the new device purchase is to receive some of the other benefits.
