When the Nexus 5 comes out, I'm dropping Cricket, I pay 35 dollars a month for unlimited minutes (call drops after an hour and a half no matter what) and unlimited SMS (not MMS) and absolutely no data.

I flashed my Gnex to Cricket, and use wifi.

It is such a pain to never have data or mms available.

Definitely selling my gnex and buying a Nexus 5 and picking up this plan. I'd just forward the calls to google voice and use my data if that'd work.

Does MMS work with the 30 dollar plan?

That link didn't work (session expired) but I found out that LTE works via a Google search. How is your experience with LTE on ST? Do they still throttle at around 1.5 GB??

I have been considering porting my number to Google Voice and getting the T-Mobile 30$ plan and just doing all calls with GrooveIP...

I mean saving 15 bucks a month translates to 190 a year... And being a broke college sstudent, every penny counts..

Well according to their front page its 2.5 gigs of high speed data, then they throttle you to 2G for the remainder of the pay period.

and yea sorry about that I suspected the session might time out on the other link just because you have to give zip code and stuff for the AT&T sim info.

I'm going to try out both plans though since im kinda curious how the speeds/coverage compare. I think I can get LTE in my area with AT&T but im not sure about Tmo.

Its all good I ordered the Tmobile SIM off their site to try the 30$ plan. cant wait to switch. I dont mind the 3.5mb/s im getting but I absolutely hate the ping times (around 250ms) Im currently getting on HSPA with ST. I herd the ping times are pretty bad on ST even with LTE. Hopefully I can get lower than 100ms with tmobile.


Ive been liking the direction that T-Mobile is going recently. These guys are swinging hard at ATT and Verizon. I think ATT and Verizon are getting Anti-Consumer day by day, while Tmobile just rolled out free international data and texting for postpaid consumers. Not to mention they only throttle data after you hit the limit without any overages.

Seems like T-Mobile is PRO consumer. im planning to get a few family members on a family plan with them if their service seems good. Never tried T-mobile.

I'm selling my Unlimited Grandfathered Data Plan from Verizon for the T-Mobile $30/month plan.

My account can go for up to $700 on eBay via AoL (assumption of liability). Most likely I'll sell my existing Verizon plan, then jump on T-Mobile.

Tired of your crap Verizon.

No. That refers to Classic Plans. Not Pre-Paid.

I plan on using this for the Dell Venue 8 Pro, but for my phone I use Straight Talk (Tracfone). Unlimited everything for $45/mo, I actually need minutes so the 100 from tmobile wouldn't work.
