Replying to: Non AT&T Android phones w/Data Unlimited? by japhy
Re: Non AT&T Android phones w/Data Unlimited?
all on unlimited MediaNet. ATT has the actual IMEI numbers but they don;t have every phone made in their registration system so it shows up as unknown and they offer the MediaNet plan.
I refuse to pay $600+ a year for "carrier data" We use at most 800mb BETWEEN both phnones, We are on wifif 90% of the time. As long as ATT has this "loophole" we will use it. I have saved well over $1000 even after the purchase of used International phones and selling new ATT subsidized devices. If ATT changes their plan, we won't use the subsidy program and stick with what we have or move to a pay as you go service with the international devices.
3mps DL speeds are fast enough to deliver my GPS turn by turn to my earbuds on my bike and the occasional movie trailer we may look for while eating. Otherwise we don;t use much carrier data even though we have app updates and email pushes set at minimum times. Peeople will be surprised at how little data they use if they don;t stream media.
I have a 64GB SD card plus 16GB so the cloud is not relevant to music at all for me. We pay $120 TOTAL including tax and junk fees using an i9100 SGS 2 and a GT-7000 Note, Share 750 minutes, pay as you go messaging ( we use FB and GoChat for messaging) $15 UL data on each phone.
