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.
