Those of you out there surfing T-Mobile’s airwaves should know of upcoming changes your carrier will be putting into effect fairly soon. On April 5th, they plan on capping your domestic off-network data roaming usage. Limits are extremely low, so it will be important to keep an eye on data consumed while roaming.

When the limit is reached, users will not be able to access data services of any kind until they are reconnected to T-Mobile towers. Many smartphone users tend to purchase the 2GB data package, and this will land you 50MB of off-network usage after the change in April. The limit resets every billing cycle.

There a couple reasons why customers buy into “Unlimited” plans as soon as they become available: The first, for the comfort of knowing hidden fees won’t show up later. And second, knowing you’re going to have an unlimited amount of data – regardless of where you are in the USA. What do you T-Mobile customers have to say about this? Let us know in the comments below.

  • T-Mobile is great.

    Unless you’re off a major highway/interstate, outside of a sizable town or metro area, out in the country, etc., etc.

    It’s no surprise to anyone who has been paying the least bit of attention to the demand for mobile data. It was only a matter of time until they capped their data plans like everyone else. What is surprising is that they waited this long. No, I take that back. What is really surprising is that they are still active in the US market.

    Is this a modification to our contract that will allow us to cancel and have the fees waved?? We’ve been waiting to get out of the contract for about 7 months now and would have to wait until August if we can’t get out early!
