    Default Used over 300GB of data on billing cycle so far - Will I get in trouble?

    Just finished talking to customer support (Live chat) - representative said my account is in good standing. Asked him if I am using too much data and he said no, that if it got to the 5TB+ region that I would get throttled to 2G speeds for an entire billing cycle.

    If they said you're in good standing take their word for it. What plan do you have? How are you using so much data? I'm quite interested... Also, yes, if you go over your data allotment that will throttle your speeds for an entire billing cycle.

    Unlimited data 2.5GB hotspot - Hotspot never works, I connect and then my browser is stuck on "Resolving host" - I have a desk job that allows us to listen to music/watch videos at work as long as we get our work done, so Im constantly streaming on 1080p+ for about 60-65 hours a week. I told T-Mobile this and they said its fine. I even asked if I should tone down my usage and they said I'm fine as long as I don't go near or over 5TB - Accounts 2TB+ get flagged and watched more closely.

    I used 1 TB before and T-Moblie didn't care.

    You're fine.

    Jeez. And I was worried about 20-30GB getting me flagged. Glad to know I don't need to worry.

    Should be hitting 5 terabytes this cycle, no slowdown, though I am on Verizon.

    300 GB?! I've never heard that one before! haha

    But that's what unlimited should be right? I'd take advantage of it as much as I could until they force you out of unlimited like they did to me

    When my upgrade came up they told me that I wasn't going to be able to keep my unlimited plan. I've been on 2GB since.

    You must mean on Verizon.. Which would make sense. You have to buy full price to keep unlimited... They just didn't tell you that.

    When you have the unlimited data plan it is truly unlimited with T Mobile...

    On a smartphone only. It does not include hotspot or usage on a tablet or hotspot device.
