    Thumbs up Thank You!

    Thank you very much for this post. I am planning on porting from NEXTEL (sucks) to T-Mobile in February when my contract finally ends. I have been looking at the plans and was confused about the different plans I saw on the Tmo website and those I heard about here in the forums. Great information! You da man!

    A good move if you ask me. I ported from nextel in november, and brought my wife along to t-mo in December(the DAY after her nextel contract was up)

    Couldn't be happier.

    I'm not sure how definitive this is. I had the unlimited Internet plan well before they changed their pricing structure. I get charged for MMS messages starting from message one, not 11.

    I've logged a cumulative 3 hours complaining. I started with CS, then they sent me to the data group. All said the same thing: no included MMS messages in the unlimited plan.

    So, I called the corporate office to complain that they made a change, didn't tell me about it, but started charging me for MMS use. They were sympathetic but unyielding.

    I just got a letter in the mail confirming the original post. I had 2.99 Tzones, for 1 MB, now changed to unlimited, 300 MMS, and 30 SMS.

    Question

    Okay, now I'm confused. I currently have Sprint which I'm looking to dump and am considering T-Mobile. However, I currently pay Sprint $5 a month for Internet access which allows me to get to my work e-mail system via WAP. We use Novell GroupWise which provides WAP capability. What I'm trying to figure out is what T-Zones service I need with T-Mobile to access my work e-mail. The first post says this:

    T-Zones $0.00
    This is the new FREE T-Zones added by default to all new customers (or old customers with no T-Zones)

    Customers will see the new Default WAP as their new home page
    Limitations: With this free service, customers cannot view email, AOL, T-Zones settings but can browse external WAP sites
    Unlimited MB usage
    No SMS or MMS buckets. But can send MMS or SMS. $0.25/MMS, $0.05/SMS
    Does this mean that I can just buy any plan (I'm considering the $29.99 or the $39.99 plan) and get access to my work e-mail WAP site for free? That sounds too good to be true...

    Well that's cool! The whole thing about corporate e-mail confused me, but it doesn't look like I need that....despite what I was told in the store.

    I dont understand something:


    T-Zones $0.00
    This is the new FREE T-Zones added by default to all new customers (or old customers with no T-Zones

    Customers will see the new Default WAP as their new home page
    Limitations: With this free service, customers cannot view email, AOL, T-Zones settings but can browse external WAP sites
    Unlimited MB usage
    No SMS or MMS buckets. But can send MMS or SMS. $0.25/MMS, $0.05/SMS

    What does this mean? Can I still change my homepage to something else? And won't I be able to see my email through the email provider's website? Like sms.yahoo.com (or whateve the site is). And AIM, how does that work in TMobile? Do I have to get a bigger plan or is it considered text messaging? TIA :-D Im thinking of switching over to TMobile now that I have a bluetooth palm pilot (Sony Clie UX50)
