The fine print in T-Mobile's new HTC Android G1 data plan shows that it has a soft cap of 1GB of data transfer per month. If that 1GB limit is exceeded, T-Mobile reserves the right to throttle back the speeds at which the 3G network can be accessed down to 50Kbps.

WOW......ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha with a side of ha ha ha ha ha 不
but t-mobile only has a 1.3 mbps 3g any way so its not like it would be slowing down that much... I'll stick with my 3.1 mbps network, that does not slow me down, android is open and will go to every provider soon enough.

fine by me....

if as long as we can shift back to edge with unlimited data. we can just tap 3g for huge data consumer sites and use edge for typical browsing....

look. I have to say this. I am a 48 year old that may not be as schooled on the newest baddest coolest devices out there, but You are one of the reasons these companies get away with this CRAP! Today's data intensive apps and web browsing consumes muc...

Very easy to consume

I reset my data counter a week ago on this iPhone, and im already at 1.2GB download again. A powerful phone on a 3G network is very dangerous.

Its quite sad that something like this can really kill what was left of a potentially great phone.
Folks, Wow! Yes, 1GB is a VERY small amount on a data-centric 3G device. This is like having a sports car and never going past 50 m.p.h.! I have the 3G Iphone and I go though that amount of data in no time. You have to think everytime you go into...
Ich used 3.5GB this past moneth, and that was on a dumb phone with Edge! 1GB is very low.
