    Wifi won't use MB's. If you do go over call tmobile. They'll give you slack if it was your first overage.

    Edge is always on, but, if you are connected to wifi then the EDGE service will not be accessed. If you have your email settings on fetch then turn the fetch settings to manual in the advanced settings for your email, and make sure you turn off push notifications. That is ofcourse only if you want to limit your mb's.


    I do want to point one thing out, I am using unlimited web2go on my iPhone 3G with internet2.voicestream.com using the Legacy T-Mobile carrier bundle off of the modmyi.com repo. My web2go plan has unlimited MB's, and so should yours. Go to tmobile.com and check the services on the line and see if it says unlimited when you login.

    I actually have the same data plan. It's very difficult to go over what you are given. I have yet to do that and I am CONSTANTLY on my iPhone surfing the web/using some sort of data related thing. I wouldn't worry about it.

    I have no idea. I never paid attention. Currently I see

    sent: 42.4 MB
    received: 508 MB

    sooo I don't know. T-mobile told me my data plan isn't unlimited yet my phone works fine no matter how much I use. My services never get cut off either. Don't know if I'm being helpful or more confusing haha...

    Ooooh my... I just saw my account online. My friend on my line changed the plan to unlimted web. Aha sorry... This change was made last month I wasn't aware of it. But nonetheless before when I had limited web I didn't have a problem. My usage habits haven't changed. Better call t-mobile and ask them for your data usage so far to be sure...

    Lol I don't know my friend pays my phone bill. We have some sort of bundle for the Internet and texting. We are on flexpay tho. When I had the 100mb I really didn't have a problem with my extensive usage. Tmobile said at that point it should be more than enough on a mobile phone. I mean you can't really download anything like you do from the web with a phone compared to a computer. At least I don't download like music or whatever. I use YouTube a lot too. Haven't had a problem...

    Call 611 and ask if the data is unlimited or not, don't call from an iPhone though. Just use your home phone. Or you can use the online chat, but if your logged into tmobile.com you can check your services and see if it says unlimited or not, and if it doesn't, then switch to the 9.99 unlimited web2go. I've used 100mb+ at times when tethering and nothings ever really happened.

    hahah funny i called 611 from my iphone and got the 9.99 plan setup from it, they know i have the iphone too lol

    i dont think tmobile cares, they even have tech support for the iphone casue they dont wanna lose customers

    i ask specifically for the 9.99 web2go plan added just to my line and they were hesitant at first but they did it, and the last time i did this a few months ago i couldnt get it to work,so i removed it, now i got it to work finally.

    this is what is says when i goto tmobile.com

    copy pasted from the site
    "
    Services on this phone


    These services are specific to your line and in addition to the shared services listed above.


    Edit these services

    Unlimited Web for phones"

    when i go check usage it only lists my minutes and text (unlimited)

    nothing about mbs

    but is it truly unlimited? i dont do much dling either, just surfing and maybe youtube it up, my sent is at 800kb and recieved is at 12mbs now and thats from playing lil online app games

    It's truly unlimited. I streamed over 100mb with Pandora on my iPhone last cycle and I had no problems. I have the 19.99 Web2Go Data+Messaging unlimited.

    Lovely

    whats the difference between yours and mine then? is it the messaging part? the reason why i didnt opt for that one is because the plan i have already has unlimited text messaging

    the higher the price the higher the speed of download you get?

    There is no difference really, T-Mobile labels plans differently for whatever reason. Blackberry and Sidekick plans cost the same as the Smartphone plan but they all have different labels

    Yeah, they don't want people tethering 24/7. Just try not to go over 5GB or they might throttle you, although I never managed that.

    The $9.99 for phones plan used to be 100MB but now it's unlimited. Asked the month they switched over and they said it cost more to monitor it than it was worth, so it's unlimited for regular phones. Smartphone users can't get the $9.99 plan, but they can't really PROVE you're using an iPhone I guess.

    Oh no they know you're using an iphone but I THINK the reality is that technically you're using a smart phone but not a smart phone that they outright support therefore it's no different than being on RAZR hard to charge 24.99 for a phone that wouldn't be getting the 3G that actually worked sometimes in my 3G area
