This is for those using the high-speed data in Canada or Mexico.
T-Mobile is bringing to an end one of its more generous perks that gave customers traveling to Canada and Mexico free unlimited LTE service. Starting on 12 November, the LTE speed will drop to 256Kbps for Oneplus users and 128Kbps for other users after the daily limit has been reached.
The offered 5 GB data allotment is replenished with each billing cycle for Canada and Mexico.
As for why T-Mobile is making this change, it wrote "Mobile Without Borders is an incredible benefit and allows customers to stay connected when traveling in Canada and Mexico".
Teens get their own Amazon accounts (if their parents let them)
Amazon has announced a new service that will open up its gargantuan ecommerce platform to millions more teenagers. Users have to fill out some information about their child, including their name, birthdate and phone number.
The users can access to less data if they aren't subscribed to an unlimited plan, for example, a customer with 6 GB cap will only have 4 GB to utilize in overseas in case the 2 GB has already consumed. After you hit that 5GB data limit, you will be throttled to barely usable 128Kbps speeds, or 256Kbps for T-Mobile One Plus subscribers (this speed will still allow you sending texts on Facebook Messenger and Whatsapp, but little else).
T-Mobile customers can track their LTE usage in Canada and Mexico by dialing the short code #WEB# on their phone.
In order to prevent usage beyond the intent of the product, T-Mobile has unveiled this new plan which will affect T-Mobile ONE, SImple Choice and Legacy plan users. After the users have exceeded 80% of the 5GB limit, they will be sent an alert message from T-Mobile.
T-Mobile not only has one of the best prices of all carriers, it has some great benefits to plans as well.
T-Mobile this week announced some changes to its "Mobile Without Borders" initiative.
