Yes it only has 500 minutes, but with voip you can use the data plan to supplement minutes if you run out :S I do that on sprint's sero as well with my tp2

But I still like the $30/monthly tmobile though, it's comparable with sprint's sero without the hassle of limited phone selection
thanks for clearing up the confusion.

We will go on the assumtion that he is on the prepaid plan although, since he has bregged about his free hd7, we know he is accually on a subsidised plan.
104.99 minus 10 percent is 90 dollars.
That does not include taxes and fees. I have 5 lines on my plan, and I know I pay appx 60 dollars worth of fee and taxes. Let's take 1/5 of that. 12 dollars.
90 for the plan+ 12 dollars worth or taxes and fees comes to 102 dollars. And that's on tmo prepaid.
The same plan on contract would be more like 125 with a student rate discount.
Eric claims he is paying 85 dollars a month. Based on that, id say he is most assuredly not on the 10 gig plan.

@austin420
I have the value plan 500mins unlimited text and 10gb of full speed data, with my student rate discount I will be paying in the 80s. This is cheaper than the almost $100 I was paying to sprint after I got my arrive even with the studentrate discount. This plan had only 450 anytime minutes and such, sure it had any mobile anytime but I didn't really use it as I don't use my phone much during the day. I don't love T-mobile, I love great service combined with great value and clear billing policies. So u failed.

Let's stick to the topic on AT&T throttling their unlimited plan.
so someone can start a thread about att, eric can bring up tmobile (as always) and if someone says anything to him about it, a mod says we need to get back on topic.
i got it.
i hope yall realize why no one comes to ppcgeeks anymore.

Re: AT&T starts throttling

Some of the comments made were in violation of Site Rules specifically #2
therefore the request was made to put the thread back on topic


Edit:
By request was in reference to NinjaMom making the statement to stick to topic

Eric's initial post was on topic. He just compared the topic to his experience with T-Mobile. It went downhill after that. In all fairness, there were posts made that were bending site rules. Out of understanding for the frustration over Eric's posts about tmobilet I stuck with a get back on topic response instead of handing out infractions.

Throttle or not, Sprint just plain stinks around here. Knoxville TN has absolutely NO 4G and the 3G is dial-up spped at best. IMHO, going with a carrier that throttles a good signal is probably better than one that offeres an unlimited crappy one.

After 15+ years with Sprint, I'm finally changing to Verizon this week which has awesome LTE where I live.

@DaveTN that's exactly why I went with T-mobile. Its quite pitiful that T-mobiles throttled speed is still faster than sprint 3G I can listen listen to slacker radio and Spotify etc which is what I couldn't do on sprint 3G.
