    Recently I upgraded to "Simple Choice North America Unlimited + 10GB SMH" (Smartphone Mobile Hotspot) to get International Data and tethering, which added about $20 to our 5-line family plan. Simple Choice lets me turn Binge-On off, but again, I typically leave it on. I'm not in a who's d**k is bigger contest to brag about how much unlimited data I can use in a month, so if I can use less without it impacting my enjoyment, why not give T-Mo a break and use less? Less congestion for everyone...

    There was an option for Binge-On on my plan (t-zone).
    It disappeared at least for a year

    It hasn't really disappeared it's just hidden now (at least on mine). Use the short codes
    #BNG# (#264#) Check the status of Binge On
    #BOF# (#263#) Turn off Binge On
    #BON# (#266#) To on Binge On

    I have no longer have any other way of changing or checking it. I miss the Vudu credit for having it set..

    Anyone else think the OP is really Karmin, and came up with this "test" scheme just to increase page views?

    Lol. doubtful though. Would assume they would just use reddit for that, just due to the higher user rate on reddit over this forum. Though stranger things have happened.

    Haha -- rest assured I am not Karmin (and the VEVO YouTube music video in web browser issue in the Philadelphia area is not just with the Karmin video only )

    If you really want me to promote myself, check out my 6 minute Philadelphia video over here
