[Gigaom] T-Mobile: No more overage charges

post #1 of 24

T-Mobile is now campaigning to end overage charges in all cases, eliminating its own fees on older plans. Overage fees aren’t inherently evil, but the way they’re implemented in the U.S. they might as well be.

This is what I have now (straight talk), I much prefer slower speed to a higher bill.

If T-Mobile would just improve their service coverage, I would switch to them in a heartbeat. Verizon is so expensive now.

just ditch Verizon for a prepaid service. I went MVNO over a year ago and haven't looked back. I've slowly found ways to spend even less on my phone service. Cheapest I could get it down to was $10/year, but was limited to the T-Mo service area, and it's terrible around here, so now I pay $80/year(I do most of my calls/texts on wifi for free).

I switched to Straight Talk (Galaxy S4) about 6 months ago and I love it. $47.25/month and my coverage is exactly the same as I used to get with AT&T. I've been trying to get my family to switch with me, I'll recommend it to anyone (not sure if you brought your own Verizon phone how the service would be but bringing an AT&T phone it's great).

Edit: I also get around 32mb/s on my S4 LTE

overage charges are the additional fees charged for exceeding your minute, text or data allowance.
