    Default GNex4 with Simple Mobile???? Unlimited 4G for $50?

    Hey,
    Am I not getting something here?

    http://www.mysimplemobile.com/Simple-Mobile-Plan.aspx

    Plan's details:
    http://www.mysimplemobile.com/plans-50-unlimited.aspx

    It says unlimited talk, text and 4G web for $50?????

    I currently pay $70 for the same with Monthly4G TMobile, but I am capped at 5GB.

    Since Simple Mobile uses TMobile's towers why not to switch?

    If it's like other prepaid carriers, you can't roam when there is no coverage and you'll be missing other features like conditional call forwarding. Other stuff too I'm sure.

    I don't care for roaming, I don't travel. And I can't use call forwarding right now as well.

    Simple Mobile, similarly to other prepaid carriers, offers "unlimited" data but cuts off/throttles people that use a lot of data. People report different things, but you likely need to keep your usage under 4GB or so, depending on where you live.

    Simple Mobile was purchased by Straight Talk, so keep that in mind. The policies will likely start to change to be the same.

    If you need the guaranteed 5GB of full speed data from your current T-Mobile plan, I recommend you stick with that.

    Also, can we please try to stop making these prepaid threads? I love prepaid (use it every day), but they're just all redundant. Every other thread on this forum is the exact same, and can be answered by one of the other 500 threads with the answers in it . The answers are worth a lot more if we have them in one place and don't have to keep answering.

    Thanks and sorry I didn't look for the answer.... I was just told by a friend that there is something like that..... I'm just wondering how that could be that they don't have no rules about cutting off 4G data... It clearly says "unlimited" and a customer might be cut off at first 4GB or whenever.... tricky....

    How Much Data on the $50 Plan?

    They throttle at 2GB and they will cut you off for excessive.

    The TOS you sign specifically give them the right to cut you off for any activity that they consider 'excessive use of the network', and they list a bunch of things that could fall under that header.
