    If I turn of LTE on my iPhone does that mean I can get unlimited HSPA+ data?

    Wait. You get unlimited data at 2g and whatever your plan allotment is you'll get either hspa and/or lte.

    Yes, T-Mobile throttles you to 2G when you use up the given 4G/LTE speeds.

    Unless you have the grandfathered 70$ True Unlimited LTE, or the new 80$ True Unlimited LTE, you have a 3G/4G data cap, and after hitting such you get dropped to 50-100kbps 2G EDGE. Even if the icon shows 3G/4G/4GLTE it is still 2G speeds.

    Yes but they throttle after different data amounts based on your plan. Most are at 2 or 2.5 GB. My plan throttles after 5GB.

    Edit: tip: you can always check your data usage by opening the phone diaper and dialing #WEB# then pressing the call button.

    T-Mobile data?

    I used 30gb lte last month watching champions league soccer. No throttling on tmob. Love it.

    I have the no longer available grandfathered 70$ Unlimited LTE Simple Choice Plan, and I've used over 70 GB from tethering and audio/video streaming the first month of my plan. It's awesome but kind of expensive with a financed phone!

    It is! by 10$ lol. 70$ for the plan 10$ for the handset insurance+JUMP! coverage and I have the benefit of the grandfathered JUMP 1.0 plan where I'm not required to pay 50% of the device before getting a new one. I pay nothing but what they want for a down payment, for both tablets and phones. My monthly bill with my current financed phone is 110$ though, and that stings a bit when in comparison you could get a Verizon business line account with unlimited talk text and data and pay about the same price for their far better coverage.
