Question Can someone please explain the 4G plan for the Samsung Galaxy Attain??

I'm thinking about buying the Galaxy Attain Wednesday and I'm gonna get the $40 plan so I can bring my bill down some, but I'm totally confused on how this 4G LTE plan works, I read somewhere in a thread you can disable 4G, but even after I run up to 100mb, will I not get 4G service anymore if I live inside the 4G coverage area? That's what I'm wondering about... I don't wanna buy a phone, then all of a sudden, I lose 4G because I ran out of 100mb if I get the $40 plan.

Can someone please explain how this works? I don't really do a whole lot of gaming or downloading media on my phone, I browse the web a lot but was wondering if I ran out of mb on the $40 plan, will it run slow if the 4G is out of mb? If anyone can please explain to me how this all works, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you

You will still have 4g but streaming videos or music will be slower

Default 4g plans

I have the Galaxy Indulge and had the same question. Here is what ive found from my experience.

The only things Ive found that have counted toward my 1gb streaming acess (now 100mb because thats the plan Ive gone down to.) Have been Netflix and HboGo. I stream Iheart Radio, Pandora, and even Youtube and my meter never moves. I thought it was possible that my meter wasnt moving because metros site was just slow to update, but after streaming HboGo for about 20 minutes, my meter moved right away.

So my advice would be unless you plan on streaming a lot of video from those apps, or something similar, go with the $50 or even $40 plan. No need to have extras youre not using.
