T-Mobile $30 plan does not 'grab' data like GoPhone does.. I think.. Weird, I know..
I've made 3 jumps so far with our N5.. First with AIO (awesome service), then GoPhone, and now TMO's $30..
Let me get to the point..(in red
I became stupidly shocked when I just checked my data usage on MyTmobile's page after having the service going on 2 weeks...... Here's the story:
When I had GoPhone (last month) I burned through my 2gb limit in literally 2 weeks
upon having their service. I soon after realized that I couldn't live without data (2 days with data cut off) so I bought another gig.. $10.. I burned through that in literally a week. So I basically burn through 1gb a week..
At this point, I knew I needed to jump ship, cause if I was to stay with GoPhone, I would be spending out-the-wazoo
I didn't want to go back to T-mobile (I had them for 4 years on contract prior going pre-paid) because where I live for college, and given the fact I travel outside rural cities a lot, I hated not having 4g/3g speeds.. I needed it for GPS and what not.. How i dealt with them for 4 years, who knows lol (being grandfathered in and it being cheap I guess, kept me ha)
Anyways, I said screw it and came back to T-Mobile and I'm now using the $30 plan.. Since I'm in the city for winter break, I thought, "Why not, I'm not traveling and I'm not in my college town where my phone only receives 2g" --- I get LTE in the city, so for a month, I can deal with it and be happy.
And I'm glad I did because, I **** you not, I'm doing the same exact things I did with GoPhone as I am with TMO, and I'm only at 367.XXmb after 2 weeks
GoPhone after 2 weeks = 2GB
TMO after 2 weeks = 367.xxMB
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE..????
Like I said, I'm doing the EXACT same things WITHOUT WiFi; stream hours of music i.e. Pandora and Google Music, FB, IG, Twitter, SnapChat, loads of texts, web browsing, etc
settings are synched the same, everything the same with 2 vastly different results.. This is nuts..
Idk, but it seems as if TMO doesn't grab/need as much data as GoPhone/ATT does.. Idk if that's possible, but given the circumstances, it seems that way..
Anybody else experienced a similar situation?
