Amazing way for T-mobile customers to save some cash.

by Stryphor    Mar 22, 2013, 2:20 AM

I bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 from T-mobile full price. (Just don't trust Craigslist) But take that phone to Straight talk. In the store Straight talk sells flip phones that run on Verizon and Android phones that run on Sprint. (At least in my area, Indiana.) But if you get on Straight talk's site you can pay $15 for a T-mobile SIM card that supports their 4g, you now have a 4g t-mobile phone running with a 4g t-mobile sim running on T-mobile's network. (Since it is a T-mo phone running on a T-mo network, there is no reason to unlock it either.)

Now I pay $45 a month for unlimited Talk and text and data (The data is limited to 2gb, which most places are now but the T-mo prepaid plan that limits you to 2gb is $60 a month.) You would think that running on an MVNO would result in slower speeds but I still run between 10-14Mbps on 4g. Nice way to save $15 a month. Working in an AT&T call center I know how many people view saving $15 a month on their bill.
