T-Mobile USA is conducting trials of a new prepaid wireless service named GoSmart Mobile. According to the company's web site, three plans are available. A $30 monthly plan buys unlimited voice and messaging; $35 monthly plan adds unlimited 2G data; and a $45 monthly plan adds 5GB of 4G data. (Users who exceed 5GB of data in any given billing cycle will have their data speeds throttled back to 2G for the remainder of the billing cycle.) Optional add-ons let customers get unlimited international messaging for $5 more per month, or unlimited international messaging and landline calling to 50 countries for $10 more per month. GoSmart Mobile is offering SIM cards for $8 that can be activated with any unlocked GSM device. GoSmart is also offering the Alcatel OT 838, a QWERTY messaging phone, for $69. The 838 features a 2.4-inch display, 2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, stereo FM radio, and a dedicated Facebook button.

2G data speeds abysmal, ripoff

2G data wont even allow you to stream a youtube video or make a voip call.

No deal here
Of course it won't, its way too slow. I don't think it could be used for any of that back in the day , either. Most of the VOIP calls I make on my device lists a data rate of about 25KBps (not kilobits, kilobytes), so you would need a stream of at l...

Well, then you'll just have to commit the horrible self-abuse of paying $45 for unlimited wireless and keep your data under 5 gigabytes.
