"5 GB for 5 Months"
I also would appreciate a somewhat more "detailed" explanation and/or any, if not all information about this query. That is of course if such information on the question in hand is still available and that the aforementioned option is still being offered as an alternative for T-Mobile to help provide it's members and patrons with affordable cellular phone and mobile internet service.
I vividly remember having witnessed this offer in writing first hand within the last 30-60 days. Unfortunately I have been unsuccessful in my attempts to gain access to this service or to even find any evidence of it's existence, past or present; anywhere excluding this discussion forum and the "mouseprint" located on the T-Mobile website listed under "On Demand Passes." If in fact this option of T-Mobile service "is still" or even "once was" an actual being of reality, I ask only that any information related to the subject in question be shared with all members and/or patrons of the T-Mobile company.
- Mobile phone and mobile data services have become extremely important necessities in today's "On The Go" society. Whether these services are intended for everyday personal use, important business, or even just plain ol' pleasure; it is without question that mobile technology has become the vitality in the lives of modern day individuals.
- Therefore I believe that it is important to be able to offer options of mobile service that are both practical and economical for those individuals unable to afford the more expensive or "exotic" plan options.
- Since the ease and mobility of digital communications and wireless high speed internet/web resources have become so essential in modern day life, it is also essential to make such necessities available for all individuals despite their monetary disadvantages.
- With the constantly declining prices of today's mobile devices, individuals are given the opportunity to afford technology that was never an option to them before due to the expenses of; and long-term developments of some of the more innovative software and high tech hardware.
In order to continue to mobilize our lives using these magnificently designed mobile devices and ingeniously crafted wireless technologies, they must be made affordable (to a point) to any and every individual interested in modernizing their lives by allowing themselves to move on into the future of mobile digital communications and wireless high speed internet/web resources. As a result these individuals must also be able to afford the services needed in order to freely use their devices in the manner in which they were intended. Although Wi-Fi is an amazing resource for using your mobile devices at a wireless level, it is absolutely no substitute for cellular service and mobile data that make it possible to use your device almost anywhere mobile services are available.
As a society that is considered to always be “On The Go,” it only makes sense that everyone part of that society have the option of being mobile available to them and therefore always reachable no matter where they may find themselves. Maybe someday, hopefully soon, all individuals within all societies will have the ability to be mobile…possibly creating a completely “Mobile Society” or possibly even a "T-Mobile Society." Next step…mobilize the Galaxy…
I fully agree and understand your view regarding technology , specifically cellular connectivity. Making this technology affordable to all is a great humanitarian idea to get even those who are without extra money the ability to connect to the rest of the world when and if they need to.The great thing is, I have always thought this way, but never knew there are programs that accommodate those who are without $$$. Ronald Regan (when he was presiden) began the program to help the underprivileged individuals connect to the advances of our ever changing technology. These individuals are provided free smart phones with a variety of features and services. It's called the LifeLine and its a great government assistance program. Individuals qualify based on their income. If they receive food stamps, medicaid or any other governmental subsidy program they automatically qualify . Each geographical region is managed by different companies who provide these services. And companies can submit to become a lifeline company too and provide these free services to the underprivileged, they just need to contact the government if they are interested in joining the program as a provider .
LIFE LINE (features vary)
FREE 500 MB of data
FREE 500 minutes of calling
And does it qualify for BingeOn!?
FYI: I called T-Mobile support, and was able to get it added onto my ipad. It was a little bit of work, but we eventually got it added.
Also, regarding the "And does it qualify for BingeOn!?", I seem to remember reading online that it does not qualify for bingeon (i.e. no data usage). But not 100% sure, as I haven't tested it. (Don't really plan on using my data to stream netflix/youtube.)
