Very, very interesting. Not completely unexpected but I am (was?) very happy with my rate plan. So far only my five line FT500 plan and a relative's two line FT600 plan will be affected, as the rest of my friends/family are on Value or newer plans. I only use 200-300 minutes a month across all the lines including myFaves (not including off peak) so unlimited minutes never appealed to me.
Oh well. LTE is great and as always, as consumers we are not obligated to give our money to T-Mobile if we're not happy. I am looking forward to being able to use any smartphone (I have T-Zones on three lines) but I need the same 4.5GB data package on my line, as opposed to the 500MB plan which is fine for the other lines.
We should post what our current plans are and what T-Mobile is migrating us to. Right now my plan is $93.92 (not including Caller Name @ $2.99 x2) before corp discount and tax.
EDIT: billfor posted a scan of his letter. It specifically states "unlimited 4G data" which would be a great deal. No asterisk about being throttled, and not the usual "unlimited data" term they use EXCEPT for their truly unlimited 4G plan. Interesting.
Castrol EDGE 5W-30 is my drug of choice.
