    Agreed! I went into a store and the staff seemed a bit confused and then proceeded to confuse me about the new offerings. When the free phone offering got in the mix it was unintelligible.

    They ended up loading the new credit into my existing account that still had credit. Unfortunately I didn't get the new pricing, but they just added some additional (free) credit into my account that basically gives me the new rates. Hopefully the pricing sticks around, or I could start a new account with the new rates.

    One of the challenges of the new rates is the credit in your existing account cannot be applied to the new rates. It is like starting over with a new account.

    Most customer reps in T-mobile stores are not aware of the promotions you have to force them to go the the prepaid website and educate themselves. You the customer pay them $55 for two months of unlimited service on a NEW line at $110 + taxes on the T-mobile One domestic promotion plan and then you receive a choice of 3 smartphones for free. If you try to add $100 to a plan you already have with T-mobile prepaid to receive a free smartphone the customer rep needs to be trained on how to do that but it can be done

    Now you're confusing me. I thought it was $50 per month for the unlimited plan? Where did $55 come from?

    T-mobile reps do not ask for $50 per month they ask for $55 to partially cover taxes and fees. Your total cost for the promotion will be $110+ depending on your location. There is no autopay credit with prepaid T-Mobile

    Sure. You could have said $50 plus tax.

    I can quote $50 plus tax but the T-Mobile reps that you have to deal with at the stores are trained to include taxes and fees on all plans so they will not say $50 they will tell you it is $110+

    T-mobile only wants $50. The government wants the rest. The website states $50. Taxes and fees are extra are in the five print.

    An example of a large file is the fortnite game that is over 12 GB. You have to download this file from an installer on Windows using hotspot.

    If you could download all files on android and then transfer to Windows you would not need hotspot but a lot of downloads use installers on Windows so you need hotspot to download directly from windows.

    Here is an example of download time.

    4 GB at 128 kbps = 74:33:55 hours
    4 GB at 512 kbps = 18:38:28 hours

    This is why I would prefer hotspot that is unlimited 3G to 4G throttled to 2G if I had a choice.
    I have this tmobile plan with unlimited hotspot at 512kbps download speeds and have run speed tests on many different devices the hotspot is connected to including ipads, tablets, smartphones, Chromecast, roku, Amazon fire, laptops, desktops and in several months of running speed tests have not had any speeds close to 512kbps. Hotspot speeds range from 0.06 to 420kbps with most of the hotspot around 180 to 270 kbps.

    Speeds can vary for many reasons even if getting full LTE. For example, on boost mobile I get 250 kbps in the day and 4 mbps at night. When boost mobile throttles I almost always get the full 128 kbps.

    That one article said to expect speeds around 512 kbps so I think they are throttling LTE to that speed.

    Did you check if you are getting LTE or are you getting 3G or 2G on the phone?

    What speed are you getting on the phone because that is suppose to be full LTE?

    So. Has anyone with this prepaid plan that has used up 50GB yet? I'm trying to find out if "de-prioritized" speed is still usable on this plan?

    I'm currently on T-Mobile One ($70/month) and de-prioritized speed is very workable for me. I'm using PdaNet+ to tether my laptop and even after 50GB, I can stream in HD without any problem.

    I used 270gb of data last month mostly by watching ESPN on the watch ESPN app.I have the $50 monthly unlimited domestic one promotional plan. Before I reached 50gb data usage I was able to have data speeds at all times in all places usually above 12mbps. After the 50gb data limit was used my speeds were deprioritized in network heavy areas to be unusable approximately .07 mbps and at times no data at all. But if I kept trying to get data restored it would return for a few minutes at around 2 or 3 mbps and then drop again to less than 0.1 mbps. After leaving the network heavy areas speeds would return to 12mbps and higher. The main issue I have with T-Mobile prepaid is the inability to use 3g network for data or 2g/3g for phone calls and sms. T-Mobile data and voice and sms all work on 4G but without 4G trying to make a phone call or not losing a connected phone call on 3g or 2g is difficult. That is why I am going to drop T-Mobile prepaid even with this $50 promotion rate

    Thank you for the report. Your experience with the prepaid plan is consistent with my experience with the post-paid T-Mobile One. Good thing I'm not much of a talker so I can live with the voice issues you experienced. I'm not sure if T-Mobile One postpaid is any better because I'm averaging 10mins talk a month, too few to even have time to notice those problems.

    I think I will switch to pre-paid for a few months and if it doesn't work, I will switch back to post-paid.

    The $50 promotion for unlimited prepaid is a limited time offer and if you pay for 2 months of prepaid you can select from 3 smartphones for free
