If any of you guys are on t mobile and have internet INCLUDED in your price plan... NOT as an add on... then you need to read this ...

http://www.zdnet.co.uk/news/mobile-work ... -40091392/

In short, they are changing the contract terms... you currently get 3gb cap on data usage... this is being cut to 500mb !!!! a 2.5gb cut !

This comes into effect on 1st feb 2011... which is not giving 30 days notice as defined by ofcom.


T mobile are tying to wiggle out of this but, if you want out early.. this is prob your chance.

Don't panic - T-Mobile have caved in to public outcry. The new cap will only be applied to new customers. I'm sure they'll come up with a way to out price the package over time, forcing people to move to new contracts.

T-Mobile. <spit>

my bb sends and receives all the time too,but glad to hear they have caved. i have a business contract with t-mobile and think , after using nearl all providers, that their customer service is far ahead of any of the others. remember i said BUSINESS CONTRACT.

500mb is just enough for checking emails , a web quick browse ,

As for android phones , use your wifi connection when at home to d/l , or use one of the many free hot spots around now a days , even my local hospital has a free hot spot now !!

Mobile companys simply dont want their networks flooded

T mobile are only coming into line with the rest of the robbing B****s

Its a non story now mate anyway, but regardless of the fact that you can use wifi.... I did not buy the phone to be restricted to wifi, I bought it to use as intended.... with 3gb of data. not 500mb :) when it comes to renew I will leave and go to 3 if they still offer unlimited.

quick update on this T-mobile ARE cutting the data on new AND upgrades R-E-G-A-R-D-L-E-S-S Oof new or "loyal" customer,
this WILL NOT affect the owners of i- (cant hear you) phone or BB. this ,apparently is to bring it in line with all other companies.

Wow! Finally something we agree on! ;)

NEVER GO TO 3*

* Unless you want to spend a few months fighting about how $hit their coverage is (in my area) and end up with a free VAIO and get the contract terminated and a full refund for the 4months coverage you paid for... So I guess it's worth it if you want a laptop!
