    Saw this over on Slickdeals. Only applies if your get the text message. Valid until Feb 2019.

    https://slickdeals.net/share/android_app/t/9086587

    Here's the page you get directed to if you get the offer. Says at the bottom text messages between 9/7 and 9/9.

    Unlimited Data | 4G LTE | Customer | T-Mobile
    http://www.t-mobile.com/offer/enjoy-...+LLC&irgwc=1#2

    I just joined in Dec 2015 so no idea if I will get the text, although someone on Slickdeals joined Nov 2015 and got it so who knows.

    How so? You wouldn't need it on unlimited and your account goes back to your current plan on March 1, 2019. So you would lose anything you have accrued so far and would have to start accruing again in March 2019.

    Unlimited (pre-ONE) comes with 14GB SMHS and Stash in its most recent incarnation was 20GB bankable, right? Grandfathered Stash customers could bank >20 and have it apply to their SMHS limit as well. Ergo, screwed.

    And it's irreversible as of now.

    Well I guess if you have a grandfathered 10GB plan and get the text, you shouldn't accept. Simple enough.

    That's the Uncarrier beauty of it--there's no option to decline; if you're one of the people targeted, you're forced into this, "no action required!"

    I'll have to agree with raino here. It should be a choice.. Not change automatically.

    If they changed me off my plan I'd change carrier. Telling me I can keep my existing then force swapping me? Definitely not cool.

    There's nothing that says you can't send them a message on Twitter or call them and revert back.

    I got the Sms too and I'm fine with it. After 2019 I'll just be reverted back to my current plan. I have 10gb per line and never go I've so I'll be back at having a data stash in no time.

    Here is the splash page for it. It seems it is only good for 2 years then you go back to what you had? Very odd.

    I still don't understand how anyone would need the stash or how it goes away later. From the link:

    "Then starting on March 1, 2019, we’ll simply switch your line back to your original plan– no hassle to you."

    I'm sure it is trying to get people used to unlimited and hopefully getting them to switch to the One Plan at that time.

    Yeah it is just a kind of crappy move. You basically snatch back all the data stash to give unlimited to those who may not want it -- and then 2 years later you swap them back to what they had? Why not ask them?

    But you should get data stash back, that is part of the original plan.

    I'm wondering about that tethering.. It says your tethering doesn't change. My tethering is unlimited since I had a tiered plan.

    This is very similar to what they did for everyone at Christmas time, gave everyone free unlimited for 3 months, no tethering limit, then back to their original plan.

    They really want everyone on that One Plan and for many that get close to their limit, this might be a good push for them. Totally marketing IMO, unlike the Christmas plan was.

    I got the deal, I'll take advantage of it for two years. When I go back, I can build up my stash easily.

    Unlimited since you had a tiered plan? I don't get what you mean. You had tethering up to the limit of your tiered plan unless you paid for more.

    I could tether as much as I wanted. Even with a tiered plan, you has unlimited data, it was just slow after you used all the data you had, including the stash.

    That is their "no overages" deal. You still had data after that, just really slow and impossible to use. This is unlimited 4G.

    Yeah .. I don't count that as unlimited as you couldn't do anything on it with that speed except web browse. ^_^

    Right, but technically you had it available and you could tether it. This is 4G LTE.

    I got the text this morning as well... My husband did not. We've only been customers for about a year.

    I'm curious if it's for those who tend to stream more...but that doesn't make sense.

    The majority of my 4G streaming is YouTube at lunch every now and then.

    The rest of my streaming is over wifi.

    There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to this...

    True but having dial up speeds through LTE isn't actual tethering. Browsing the web on it sure but it isn't like real tethering where you can do things that you normally could do with a tethered connection.

    Right, but you could tether a pad etc and browse. This offer says this:

    "Your Smartphone Mobile HotSpot (tethering) data amount does not change with this upgrade.."

    So that should mean you can tether unlimited or hmm.. Just thought about this.. they are saying you get 10 gb of data to tether or however much data you buy normally.

    I've have an extra 10 gb on my line monthly. I'm wondering if I need to cancel that or if the charge will go away.

    I just got the text on only one of my lines. Does this just apply to that one line or all of the lines on my account?

    I'm not sure if it applies to the entire account or the individual line. Let me see what I can find out.

    I just logged into my account and it still shows the 10 GB plan for each line, even the one that I got the text on.
