Looks like they raised prices on the lower data plans too, upgrading from the basic 2 gig to 6 used to be $10, now $15.
It seems T-Mobiles latest gimmick is raising their prices despite their growing number of subscribers. About a year ago I believe the deal was 4 lines with unlimited for a flat $100. And as someone also pointed out, they have been raising their prices on their lower end plans slightly.
SOOOO happy I switched to sprint. Not only are they a better deal, but their coverage beats T-Mobile's "can't leave city limits" coverage a thousand times over.
I'm not the least bit surprised I've been saying in these forums for months that the "Uncarier" is in a very Carier way going to try ( and fail ) to subtly increased prices, find ways to exploit customers wallets or trick the gullible masses willing to fall for more gimmicks than a wrestling pay-per-view
The TMO Magenta Punch drinkers are just so hard to reason with and wake up. Maybe when costs get closer to what TMO calls "the other guys" or so lovingly and maturely call "Dumb Dumb and Dumber" they will get a dose of shock therapy
For someone preaching trying to be the best value as if it were the gospel
TMO's series of price rises should seem suspect.
Yea they may of increased base data buckets BUT and a big but at that
Numerous studies and research in recent years have shown the average costs of delivering data to users among the wireless industry has been on a decline
on a TB ( Terabyte ) bases
X amount for every X number of TB provided to customers as a whole
Not sure on the formulas used but if those studies hold weight 1 should argue raising base data buckets w/o increases in price should be manageable
I mean unless of course oh say you're purely seeking profits from your customers but surely a company solely concerned about value for its customers would never do that
Are you allowed to tether 7GB per line with T-Mobile unlimited data?
If so that's not a bad deal. I think T-Mobile users with unlimited data are allowed tethering.
An MR Staff pointed out 14GB in fine print. I say screw them find a way to tether anyway lol
It's your data you should be able to use it ANYWAY You please/choose ( within reason or legally of course )
People may bash ATT but at least they've never once cared how I use my data nor tried to charge extra to tether! Even the 35GB of bonus data ( 50GB if you count the 1st time they doubled my data no cost ) is not regulated, reduced or restricted in its use
For TMO to be so cutting edge and for its customers you'd think there'd be less restrictions lol
I would kill for a service that actually works. Chicago's coverage is crap! Building penetration is horrible, there are several dead zone on highway 294 that I am aware of and experience pretty much every day. the closest gateway place for many Chicagoans is Wisconsin Dells in Wisconsin. I am guessing T-Mobile has like one antenna in there cause forget about having coverage in many hotels or water parks.
I have been dealing with this service since 6S release but I am soo fed up with this crap service that this month (after getting tax return money) I am paying off the phone and moving back to Verizon or ATT.
Until T-Mobile gets his band 12 in Chicago, I cant recommend them! even Sprint works better in Chicago than T-Mobile.
I've been saying for over a decade ATT is and nearly always has been the best
Better Customers Service
( if you know whom to talk to/contact best times to contact and what/how to say things. Really many companies customer services just requires a certain finess to get your way )
( yes prices may be higher but 99% of the time you're getting exactly what you pay for minus the gimmicks BS or runarounds. Only gimmicks right now are Double Data, Bonus Data or Rollover )
( in some places more physical store locations in better places easier to access/get to )
