    During my few months on an ST AT&T LTE sim, I could only use the tfdata APN and not the older att.mvno (or whatever it is exactly) APN. I never used 2.5 GB/month, so I don't have experience with throttling, but I did have a heck of a bad time with delayed push notifications and slow data (constant disconnects to Google's servers, even though no signal loss). I have since switched to a ST T-Mobile sim and push notifications are instant again and internet seems much more responsive. I'm not sure if others have the same issues with the AT&T tfdata APN, but if you do, and T-Mobile has decent reception in your area, I recommend trying the ST T-Mobile sim.

    I'm not entirely sure that if you don't violate the TOS that no throttling or other data problems takes place. S.T. appears to have a ton of data issues that occur even when no TOS are violated.

    No matter how many service periods you purchase at once, each thirty day service card is applied one at a time each thirty days.

    I know this is like a year later, but i have recently joined net10 byop. I'm using a lg g2 verizon lte, and also verizon connects only through cdma. Well just wanted to let everyone know, if you decide to switch to byop to only use verizon, because being that the phone uses cdma, which is not a digital signal, and in my opinion gets better service, i will tell you not to ever switch your phones wifi on or to ever let the phone die or turn the phone off. I say this because the signal they send to throttle your data will never affect your phone, as long s you do what i just told you. I used on average of 10-12GB per month with no throttle.

    Talking

    I'm always annoyed when someone resurrects a year and 2 month old thread and really doesn't add any additional useful information.

    OH WAIT, newbie alert! LOL

    Maybe more useful than you realize. Does this little trick work on straight talk as well? I have a verizon phone ported over via byop and this would be rather handy if it works on st.

    No, it just makes no sense to come on here telling people to not use their phones for nothing but calling and texting(that's basically what you are saying). What's the point of having an android or any kind of smartphone if you minimally use data? That's a waste of money for the cost of the devices and the service if its barely used.


    mod edited: see how it works just as well without resorting to name calling?

    Although he may not have used the best phrasing(or spelling... whats a hof?), cooter55 does have a valid point: Abide by the terms of service, and used your data wisely. They advertise 5gb of hi speed. Then unlimited at 64kbps. So far they have stuck to their end of the deal for my account. Thats as good a deal as I have found for $45 a month. There are no free lunches. Feel free to ignore my reasoning and crack newbie jokes. Anyway, this thread is rather off-topic. Anyone found a good way to bypass the data limit for a cdma phone? Because 64kbps doesnt seem nearly as fast as it did 12 years ago when i had 29k dialup *grin*

    Re:alstfimos. This doesnt seem to work. Just maxed out my data and about 1 hr later my speed test went from 600 Kbps to 7-8

    What? CDMA is digital. Analog (AMPS) was shut down in 2008.

    Lol agreed. This thread is so out dated and should be closed for good.
