    Hi Jet,

    Well, it appears that a cryptic note from Republic Wireless boasts that, down the road, they will be partnering with multiple carriers, not just Sprint, so in a strange fashion, I may be...

    Hi Jet,

    I was a loyal user of T-Mobile since 2001... stayed even after they ditched my 19.99 unlimited data plan (Edge service on a PCMCIA card), stayed around until this year when they sent me...

    RiskyBidThis,

    It could well be.... I have an old candy bar phone, just died. A friend gave me an unlocked Samsung GT-55230, which worked for someone else with T-Mobile.... It appears to be quad...

    RiskyBidThis,

    Fifty bucks for two lines on the new bill. The issue for me, right now, is getting new phones.

    SimpleMobile sounds like a plan.

    Tks.

    Well, from my point of view, the new "no plan" plan costs me money... I admit that I have a good deal for 2 dumb phones: 1000 minutes for 40 bucks. That all went out the window as of December 2014....

    Scottish,

    A few years ago, pre financial collapse, that would have appealed. These days I'm on a strict budget.... I'll wait for awhile. Perhaps a wifi only phone or tablet could compensate for...

    Scottish,

    Too late... I signed up for a family plan with two dumb phones (no data at all). They did not offer me any other plan than 35 bucks for 5gig cap and my normal fees for two phones. I now...

    Glad you could still get it. They gave me 5Gig cap for 35 bucks a month. I cancelled my old grandfathered Total Internet Plan (since 2001) and went to 2 dumb phones on a family plan. No data at all....

    Jet1000,

    Yup, still throttled at 5Gigs.... so 35 bucks for 5 Gigs and tethering, ah, or as they now call it, a hotspot.

    I paid the extra 15 bucks in order to keep my connection, but as I said, that is a short-term solution. I will be moving to cable internet with Time Warner (the only available carrier where I live)...

    grandfathered plan not honored and shut down

    Jet1000,


    Not only did they slow my Total Internet Plan when I hit 5 Gig (try 7kbps speed on average according to SpeedNet), the very next month they cut me off altogether. Said if I did not sign...

    60kbps? Excellent.... speednet said 7kbps and that was consistent every day once I went over 5 gigs.

    Call centers are spread around the country.... I've heard that the Colorado folks tether all the time, but that's just gossip on my part.

    Scottish,

    Ah, got it. My plan was to get a windows phone that would work with the Total Internet plan, but as they went ahead on their own and throttled me, that idea has gone out the window.

    Tmotk,

    Thanks, saw that thread and am looking for my original contract from 2001 and perhaps whenever they first did the EDGE pcmcia cards (GC83 and earlier).

    Scottish,

    Sorry? Not sure I understand.... you had a similar plan some time ago, the VPN Total Internet Plan for 20 bucks, 24/7 unlimited data. I signed up for it when first they provided edge and...

    That day might be sooner than you think. They just throttled my VPN Total Internet plan when I hit 5 gigs.... current speed? 0.02 mbps.

    Tmotk,

    Scratch all that... T-Mobile just throttled me and told me verbally that they were updating all the old plans. No more unlimited data regardless of whether you were a loyal customer on the...

    Tmotk,

    Yup, me too. Last month I hit 7 gb... caveat? Hard to find new smart phones that work with the Total Internet Plan and do tethering with a Cradlepoint router (I run 3 computers on that...

    danska,

    Yes, I don't keep cookies so that explains why the disable doesn't work. But I am happy to use startpage instead of straight Google anyhow.

    Yes, kind of, but this is from using T-Mobile as a tether to a PC and yes, this is what I'm seeing suddenly (today first time) whenever T-Mobile decides it needs to reinterpret the keyword(s).
