Why is Tmobile advertising an "unlimited" data plan?
not limited; unrestricted; unconfined: unlimited trade.
boundless; infinite; vast: the unlimited skies.
without any qualification or exception; unconditional.
It's all about the marketing.
For the past 3 weeks, out of some 150+ customers I've dealt with who had smart phones, only 1 has gone over the 2GB limit. Most run up to 1GB or 1.5 but so far only one with 2.3GB. It's going to be an ongoing study of mine for the next several months....but so far it hasn't been an issue for this small test I'm running.
I have the 2GB cap as well and I'm considered a data hog. While it has *never* posed a problem for me, I did like the peace of mind of not worrying abou...
At least tmo just throttles your speed rather than giving you a hard cap like AT&T,
AT&T doesn't have a 'hard cap' they charge per mb overage fees like VZW.
Many people will never exceed 2GB.
Except anyone using the hotspot feature downloading 2 movies. OK pickles whatever you say.
Because consumers are stupid, and only respond positively to words like "unlimited" and "free"
They're not stupid TMO is being deceptive by being so shady with the 2 gig throttling cap.
