What happened to Data Stash?

magenta2717812

    I can no longer check my Data Stash online. What happened? I check it regularly but it is no longer visible and I have to call T-Mobile support and ask them how much I have left.

     

    Going to Usage->Usage Overview no longer shows the stash. Is it visible somewhere else now?

     

    TIA

        It's a not-so-subtle hint. T-Mobile clearly wants you to move to the ONE plan.

            Case of the Disappearing Data Stash...   I'm so happy to have come across this message board.  Wish I would have searched this online 6 months ago because for the l around the last 6 months I've been calling T Mobile on a regular basis regarding not being able to view my DATA Stash anymore, which suddenly just disappeared one day.  Went online to check because my data started running out a lot quicker then it normally does.  I would usually have a little data left over to go into my stash so I found this a bit odd.  Then found it more odd that I could no longer see what was in my DATA Stash.  So just this evening, I spoke to a Tech specialist who told me that as of April this year, TMobile customers would not longer be able to view DATA Stash meter online and would have to call to check.  I find this very disturbing because for one, how do I know that I've actually used my allotted data and if it goes to my DS then how much of that is used?  From the time II started calling up until this evening no one was ever able to give me this information about this change even though it been on record since April.  After spending at least an hour on the phone each time I was told that someone would call me back within 72 hours, never got a call back.  Well I'm gonna make a call in the next 72hrs because "There is definitely something strange in the T-Mobile neighborhood, and who am I gonna call?  The Interstate Regulatory Communications Busters aka FCC!  Also will be contacting TMobile corporate office.  Customer were never notified of this change and I dont think the Tmobile agents were either.  Maybe, maybe not.  Its definitely a subtle attempt at something in the mix, This was I believe a pretty underhanded thing to do so we have no idea whats gong on with our data so  then we have to call each time to find out????? WTF ??? They can tell us anything and I just wont stand for it to go down like that.  Its very unfortunate, because like myself, I'm sure many of you switch to TMobile for that feature alone  Was gonna wait to chime in until tomorrow, but after reading all of you guys posts, I got so upset at how this is confusing everyone and no ones getting any answers.  And on top of this when I asked the Tech today if they were aware of this issue and if I was the only person who was experiencing this issue, he said he's been with T-Mobile for some time now and its the first he's heard of this. He also said he'd call me back in about 72hrs. After reading these posts now I have my answer and know I'm not alone!!!  Glad to have finally gotten to the bottom of this mystery of the Disappearing Data Stash.  Anyway, I could go on, but I'm actually tired now.    Need to get rested up so I can get on those calls a

            With T-mobile only having unlimited plans, things like binge on and data stash have been going away since the info is not relevant for the majority of customers. I would call in and file a trouble ticket and see if they can add it back as it could of just been a accident.

              I sent a direct message to some random support presence at the website and was told my Data Stash is still alive and well. Could be a new quirk/flaw on the my t-mo website. For the longest time I was unable to access the details of my mobile wifi data plan under "plans and services." Hopefully someone notices and fixes this new website bug.

                I have made a post on this already.... now i see others are having the same issue.

                 

                I can't even upgrade my line if i wanted to... T-Mobile gives me no options to upgrade to.... I guess I have to join the ONE PLAN

                umm, NO WAY

                Yes. Current Simple Choice customers can keep the plans as long as they want, and most can add new lines under the rules of your existing plan.

                • Simple Choice single line customers cannot add lines, but they can change their data amounts
                • Simple Choice multi-line customers can add lines and change their data amounts
                • Simple Choice Family Match customers can add lines at the same or higher data level

                  Hey everyone!

                   

                  Sorry the Data Stash info is MIA on our site. The good news is that our web engineers are working on this to get this resolved so you can see it. We appreciate your patience and my apologies again for the missing feature.

                      Thank you very much for providing this information... I was beginning to think there were some sort of conspiracy going on .

                       

                      Hopefully the engineers are also working on allowing us (simple choice subscriber) to upgrade/change our plan and/or data via the website... because currently there are no options to choose from .

                          You're welcome barcodeable. For what it's worth, I can't see mine either so we're all in the same boat. How long has this plan change issue been happening? have you filed a ticket for this already?

                           

                          Side note: When people talk about conspiracies, I always think about aliens visiting earth and people trying to cover it up. LOL!

                              This issue of me not being able to Upgrade/downgrade or change my plan began about a week ago... I stop complaning about issues because these issues all deal with T-mobile's own website. I waste so much time notifying customer service about T-Mobile's website just for them to trouble shoot my phone, tablet,  and browser. I keep telling them it's not a ohone issue but a T-Mobile website issue...  There should be an easier way to send customer feedback without having to go through the T-mobile verification protocols when the issue has little to do with the customer and more to do with T-Mobile's own website.

                               

                               

                              Alien cover-ups can be a conspiracy too... but I have little knowledge about that subject matter.

                                Actually, aliens did visit Earth, and apparently they took DataStash, because I can't find it.

                            No, this issue is not resolved.

                             

                            According to my hotspot plan, I have 18GB plus data stash.

                             

                            Now, today, I log in to find a warning that I've gone over and my service will be slowed - even though I have the full 20 GB of data stash.

                             

                            My "plan" clearly includes it. If this is an attempt to get everyone to upgrade to T-Mobile One, that makes no sense with hotspot customers, since that option is not currently available to us.

                             

                            So, where is the data stash? Why did it suddenly disappear?

                              I remember working at a cell phone company that certain service order codes (SOC Codes) drive much of the features behind what the website shows consumers. For instance, if an individual has data stash then data stash should appear. If a person doesn't have data stash then data stash options would not appear, etc. The disappearance of these things could indicate that the company is no longer focusing on what it calls 'legacy' SOC codes or it could be a really long ongoing issue. By removing access to these items online, T-Mobile maybe saying it is time to switch plans, as we no longer make it easy for you to do business with your current plan. I chatted with T-Mobile customer support this evening and it was confirmed that the data stash feature is not currently unavailable, this is a known issue and T-mobile is currently working to resolve. I wonder if this translates to customer talk as "it's time to get off your old plan and move on with life". The irony here is I call T-mobile to inquire about the data stash and I am told about the wonderful website and mobile app to check our account usage. Additionally, my other line with a 'legacy' Simple Choice unlimited plan has had its data plan removed without notice. This has happened once or twice per year (a total of five times). One time it had been one week without data before the issue was resolved. The last time I chatted in to report the issue I was offered to switch to the new One Plan. That is when I knew for sure there could be trickery going on. Hey, let's face it, I pay a low price for four lines and a free 200mb tablet plan. The service is great, and T-mobile Tuesday ROCKS. I even like following the CEO on social media because he cares about his employees and customers. However, when things like this happens, and it does happen, I wonder what is the driving force. Did this happen by mistake, is there some rough operator at T-mobile messing with me, or is this the intention of some director's plan to make us switch? I contacted the retention department to inquire on getting discounts on phones, why these issues are happening and to discuss rate plans. I have never once received any subsidy on a phone with T-mobile. The T-mobile One users get BOGO deals frequently but not I. Not even the retention department could do any better for me. They actually said, "you are as low as you can go. We are here if you ever wish to come back." I do not want to leave but there is a difference in leaving because of not receiving what I pay for. In this case, access to data when I pay for unlimited data or access to view data stash when it was advertised I could check it 24/7. At the end of the day I am still their customer.

                                This is a subtle way to annoy you just enough to get you to migrate to the T-Mobile ONE Plan where you wouldn’t need to be concerned about Data Stash. Im happy with my Simple Choice Plan... I monitor my bill each month where it tells you how much Stash you have, and I do the math on how much data i used to determine how much i should have left.

                                 

                                T-Mobile wants to do away with Data Stash.... and this is their first step to make that happen. T-Mobile ONE and Essential Plan subscribers have no clue about Data Stash because it isnt apart of their plan. And Im sure when new customers request to have Data Stash included in their plan, T-Mobile will oblige them and have a HUGE Uncarrier Event promoting the NEW Data Stash feature.... but it wouldn’t be called “Data Stash” because there is already a “Data Stash”.... They may call it the “T-Mobile Data Vault”    lol and everyone will love ❤️ them for it.... that’s business with clever marketing added.

                                  I just realized I cannot view my data stash as well. Thanks for all the posts. I do not think they can get rid of data stash because it is in your contract with them. They always say that your plan will stay the same as long as you want it to.

                                      It can actually be viewed now. Apparently they were doing some upgrades to their plans and the website. You will see the new changes on the website as well as our statements.

                                       

                                      It would have been nice if they would've been able to just tell us that because for over six months I wasn't able to get any answers. It was only when I saw the changes to the website, my newly lowered rate, and the new layout of the statement that I realized that this was what must have been underway. Guess it was supposed to be a suprise...lol.

                                       

                                      The period of now knowing was was going on and why I couldn't see my Data Stash for months was very frustration, but the one good thing that came out of it was the new lower rate for the North America Simple plans :-).

                                       

                                      Hope you're able to see your Data Stash now.
