    OMG. I've only used 1.01 GB of data for this month so far, and guess what? Yep! I've been throttled! This is just unacceptable.
    ST is one of the worst service providers; shady as hell and **** poor CS. After dealing with them, I happily moved over to T-Mo for a little bit more but at least they are up front - 2GB until they throttle.

    Did you do much streaming? What made up your data usage?

    i completely agree. i shot them an email threatening to leave if they don't resolve this and make sure that it doesn't happen again. unfortunately, t-mo coverage in my area isn't very good, but still might be worth a try at this point. maybe leaving sprint wasn't such a good idea after all...

    What are the steps for activating a new nexus 4 on straight talk - tmobile. I got a free sim card from t mobile but from what I have read it sounds like I need an activation kit? Also, can I use the $30 dollar unlimited data from Walmart or do I have to get something else. Thank for the help...moving from Sprint so this is all new to me.

    You need to go to straighttalksim.com and order the T-Mobile compatible sim from them. It will be $14.95 plus tax. They were shipping for free, not sure if they still are.

    it doesn't take a genius to figure out why the data speeds drop drastically all of a sudden. some quick speed tests over a few days confirmed this.

    I just did it tonight with seller rarinter. I bought a $45 refill for $38.50. After providing the phone number to get the refill, the credit was added to the account within maybe 5 minutes. Awhile ago I did the same thing with a T-mobile account, same seller, and same results. 15% savings on ST, and 10% savings on TM. Hard to beat!
    If I'm on Auto-refill and I purchase one of these, will ST just not bill my credit card the next month?

    I've never used Auto-refill, so I can't answer that. If you plan to keep buying refills I would recommend turning off the Auto-refill option.

    Question about the data service indicator when using ST (ATT sim): When you're in 3G territory, does it say "H" or "3G"?

    On a nexus it will say H whether in a 3g or hspa+ area. The nexus doesn't have the manufacturer skin so it won't show 3g/4g.

    On a nexus it will have an H. Most other phones the manufacturer will have 3g/4g baked into their skin .
