Free upgrade to 3GB data per line. Anyone try it lately?
A while back (like 2 years ago) someone discovered that if you call into T-Mobile and simply ask to have your 1GB of data upgraded to 3GB of data at no extra charge, they would do it on the spot. Sure enough, after word got out on XDA about it, many of us called in and successfully had them upgrade us to 3GB per line at no additional charge (would normally be another $10/month per line).
Last year we changed our plan to become contract free. However, I was unaware that this initiated the $10/month per line for the 3GB of data so I got rid of the extra data after a couple of months passed with neither of us using more than about .5GB each. Unfortunately, my fiance and I are now using more of our data and keep hitting our cap with about 2-3 days left in the month. So I was thinking about calling and trying to get the 3GB free again.
Before I do this I wanted to see if anyone else had any recent experience with this or discovered another secret or promotion that help to get more data without paying more. Yes, I know I'm being cheap but I don't want to pay another $20/month when we both barely use over 1GB each as it is and they don't offer a 1.5GB or 2GB option.
