    Anyone opted for TMobile Internat plan ? I thought they had plans starting $19.99, but now i see it is $29.99

    I was planning to get the data plan to make full use of the Treo 650 and other internet features, but $29.99 seems on the higher side...

    I've been using the Unlimited Internet plan for a couple of years. On the other hand, I only pay a "grandfathered" price of $19.99.

    Bill,

    How is the speed ? And how come you have the $19.99 plan . Is it because you have the voice plan as well or is it under the contract ? If it is $19.99 , i would sign up.

    T-Mobile's data is EDGE, so, depending on my location, my data rate is usually between 100 and 140kbs.

    I pay $19.99 because I was "grandfathered" in; IOW, I was already a customer, paying the old rate, when they introduced the new rate. New customers have to pay the current rate.

    I have the the T-Mo Total Internet Plan (the $29.99) plan. I've been on T-Mo for about 3 years now.

    T-Mo used to offer unlimited data on the phone for 19.99 and unlimited use of their hotspots nationwide for 19.99 for a total of 39.98 if you chose both. However, about a 1.5 years ago, they decided to combine the two and created the 29.99 plan for both and kill the two individual plans. I too had the 19.99 unlimited data plan as a grandfathered plan for quite a while, but then decided I needed the unlimited hotspot use too and so gave up my grandfathered plan for the 29.99 plan...which then gave me combined services. This is the only option that's now available.

    The speed on the T-MO plan is Edge speed.

    Man, I've spent a lot of money and time on these things!!

    The CSR you spoke to must be confused and was referring to hotspot@home plan. The Hotspot plan allows loptap access. Just go the website and read.
    https://selfcare.hotspot.t-mobile.co...BeginSignup.do

    This is what they have when you add to existing voice plan:
    Service Description
    HotSpot Make the most of your time -- get unlimited high-speed wireless Internet access for your PDA or laptop at places you already go, including Starbucks, FedEx Kinko's, Borders Books and Music stores, Hyatt hotels, and airports.

    BTW: I did a speed test by going to http://text.dslreports.com/mspeed

    and i got 62kbits/s . If the Tmobile data is EDGE i thought the speed should be much fatser than this ....
    Also, when Treo connects to the TMobile network it says "Attaching GPRS" ....

    The data speed you experience depends on your location. In my neighborhood, I usually experience 135kbs - 150kbs, but there are spots around town where that drops to 80kbs; the range of speeds is much greater when I travel.

    The GPRS message is normal.

    I'm using the unlimited data plan, but I'm wanting to make sure I have the correct connection settings to access the internet on my unlocked 750 using the T-mobile network. Can someone tell me what settings they have?

    I'm trying to figure out what the access point name should be, as well as, whether or not there's a username and password for the t-mobile network.

    Thanks for any help you can provide

    For my Treo 650 it already had the T-Mobile Internet as a service setup (Pref -> Network) and you cannot modify it. All i had to do is click on Connect.

    BTW: I did sign-up for the $29.99 unlimited plan. I use the browser a lot more now and i love the Google Maps... and can now use the Mundu IM.

    For 30 bucks extra a month, you better use the web more often! XP

    I guess that's when you use the hotspot option most of the time, it would be worth it, unfortunately, hotspots locations are not always close by.

    Not sure if anyone noticed, but TMo just lowered the internet plan from $29.99 to $19.99. The Blackberry plan was also lowered to $10. I am going to switch over to the Blackberry plan (im currently on the $6 tzones plan). 4 extra bucks a month is a whole lot better than $16 extra a month.

    The new $10 Blackberry plan is actually for "unlimited email", so I'm not sure if all ports are open and allow everything to access the 'net.

    I'm gonna try the plan when I get home. If it works & I can use internet enabled programs without a proxy, then I'll keep it. If not, then I'm back to the T-Zone.

    I just checked, and it still lists the Blackberry Unlimited Email feature at 19.99. Did you add it via the web or by calling in?
    Please let us know if this lets you bypass the proxy!

    Thanks.

    Now the 9.99 Blackberry Plan is listed, but it's a new plan. So there are now these three Blackberry Plans listed. I'm guessing that the 9.99 plan will not give us anything more than TmobileWeb gives us now for 5.99.

    Add access to BlackBerry's powerful e-mail functionality to your myFaves plan. The myFaves BlackBerry Unlimited E-mail Add-on includes unlimited BlackBerry Internet E-mail.

    BlackBerry Unlimited Add-on

    Hey Syphon, any luck with the $10 blackberry unlimited email plan? Are all the ports open?
  19. #19  
    Nope. We're stuck with $6 proxy internet or $20 full internet (which is now just called "Hotspot" at the tmobile services section).

    I've been on T-Mobile's unlimited $20 plan for about 4 years now, first with a 600, then a 650. I have the VPN option, which gives me my own IP address, and full unlimited internet use. I think it's a bargain. I've used it in foreign countries from Australia to Greece, as well as many US locations. (I did use a prepaid SIM card in Australia for calls, but swapped the T-Mobile SIM back in for internet.) I can understand wanting to pay less, but I think this plan is an excellent value. And no, I don't work for T-Mobile or sell their products or have any connection to them other than the phone.
