Caveat: I'm a user with a $3/month plan. As far as I know:
1) With the $3/month plan, each minute costs you 10 cents. Each text message also costs you 10 cents.
2a) When I call 611 from the phone, I hear 3 options:
- $5 for a 1 day pass allowing a max of 500MB of data
- $10 for a 1-week pass with unlimited talk and text but no data
- $10 for a 1-week pass with 1GB of data
Thanks ttafamily. Still learning this phone & did recheck. But, it does not
reflect this information on the website. I messed up...oh well!
1) $3.00 per month for 30 minutes/text. Afterward, it is .10 cents per.
Does that really make sense?
Actually, Pay As You Go Phone Plans | Best Daily Prepaid Phone Plans | T-Mobile says "10 cents", not ".10 cents" -- there's a huge difference there. Don't believe me? Do a google search for "Verizon Math .002"
And, it does make sense. You're getting a dime per minute or text, no matter what you refill with (previously it was a sliding scale and the only way you could get a dime per minute or text was to refill with $100. If I recall correctly, the old rates $10 gave you 30 minutes, so you're saving a lot of money there if you were doing small minute refills.
2) "Add a high-speed data pass. Need high-speed data? Our flexible passes will keep you streaming
and downloading at 4G LTE speeds, plus each pass includes Smartphone Mobile Hotspot."
$5/day: Daily pass - up to 500MB 4G LTE data; $10/week: Weekly pass - up to 1GB of 4G LTE data.
What's wrong with this? They're encouraging you to buy the "better packages" -- it's no different than going to the movie theater and it's twenty cents more for six times the amount of popcorn. Also, 500MB in a day is a lot - way overkill, but possibly necessary in emergencies. 1GB a week is "generally" normal data use (I use about 4GB/mo, which translates to 1GB/week)
2a) Where is it on 'My Account'? Should not have to call 611, to hear something totally different.
$5/day means up to 500MB; but, $10/week, does not mean 1GB data. It means 1 week of unlimited
talk & text.
On Demand Data Passes suggests the navigation in My Account.
Amazingly, I caught the attention of smplyunprdctble! Just can't resist.
$3 per month is a waste of space. All T-Mobile had to display was .10 cents per talk
and text (basic). Preferably, T-Mo should not have changed the plans.
On a scholar's point of view (smply), .10 cents (or $0.10), should be 10 cents. Is their
really a difference? Of all references....Verizon.
Last time I went to a movie theater? Somewhere in the 1990's. No comparison there.
On Demand Pass? Agree with ttafamily 100%! Now what smply?
Again, not .10 cents. There's a HUGE difference -- like 100 fold. .10cents and $.10 are NOT the same thing.
And, $3 isn't a waste of space -- There are plenty of people who use less than 30 minutes/texts per month. I'm imagining this was to encourage those folks to use minutes. Get them addicted to use more. Kinda like crack, but better for teeth
