    Default H20 Wireless vs. Straight Talk?

    I have been using Straight Talk (AT&T sim) with my Nexus 4 for nearly a year now (after a brief stint with local carrier iWireless and a few weeks with T-Mobile). I do not have good T-Mo coverage in my area, so AT&T towers are the ideal GSM option.

    I am currently paying $45 for unlimited voice, SMS and data (well, 2.5GB... through ST, but just read about .

    $30 = unlimited voice, SMS and 500MB data
    $40 = unlimited voice, SMS and 1GB data
    $50 = unlimited voice, SMS and 2GB data
    $60 = unlimited voice, SMS and unlimited data

    H20 also throws in some international credits that are not of interest to me. I plan to measure my data usage during the next 30 days to get an idea of the exact amount I use. Because I am on wifi at home and work most of the day, I am guessing that I use less than 1GB/month, so I could essentially save $5/month by switching from ST to H20's $40/month plan.

    My question for anyone reading this forum that might be an H20 Wireless customer:
    • How is their customer service?
    • Have you experienced any irregular billing issues?
    • Are there any other pros/cons you've seen from H20?

    I looked into using them but a chat cr rep told me they only have 3g speeds.

    Mmtowns, is ST now allowing AT&T sim card customers 2.5 GB of data on the $45 plan? Before I left them a number of months ago they cut AT&T customers down to 1.5 GB of data a month...

    Good question, jeremmar. Here is what I found on Straight Talk's site:

    30 day Unlimited Plans include 2.5 GB of high speed data per 30 day cycle. After 2.5 GB, your data speed will be reduced for the remainder of the 30 day cycle. High speed data is restored once a new 30 day service plan is redeemed at the end of the 30 day plan cycle.

    Thanks for checking. When I was on their AT&T sim, their "customer service" person told me all AT&T sim user were capped at 1.5 although all other users were 2.0 or so. That was a few months back though......

    H20 wireless is bad news. I was constantly being throttled and having to contact customer service to get it corrected and reset. At 2.1GB I was throttled to unusable speeds again (.03mps.) When I contacted live chat to complain, they responded by cutting off my data entirely.

    I had not been tethering or streaming much, some YouTube.

    Avoid H2o like the plague. The have rip off non-transparent plans, and they top it off with horrible customer service.
