    Plan info is herehttp://www.metropcs.com/metro/category/Plans/cat250023
    Just search on the GPlay for data and you will have a few to choose from.

    It says 5GB and I got a message from metro pcs saying I went over my data usage so they are lowering down my 4G LTE speeds :(

    kind of sucks, yeah they grandfathered in the price, but not the usage. I'm already upto 16% used, and before i was unlimited.

    wtf i thought if we had the $60 plan before the change we would keep the same price and also the unlimited data usage

    Its still going to show what you use every month.





    Yes that's true..if you change plans though then right back into the tiered plans with data caps:)

    How many days did it take you to hit 5GB? How much are they slowing it down by? Can you do a speed test and screen shot?

    When I was with tmobile, they slowed my speeds down to around 35kbps (4.5KB/sec) which is INSANELY slow. You can't even use google maps, facebook, etc. This used to piss me off SOO much. I was pissed, but I realized that there's nothing I can do about it, so I just got used to the 5GB a month.

    If you don't mind me asking, what'd you use your 5GB on?

    There's no such thing as "grandfathered in" at metro pcs since we have no contract. Being grandfathered in is a term that's used at contract carriers since they had contracts that were signed that didn't cap data.

    I know that guy at metroPCS facebook said "no, you're grandfathered in," but he's lying/doesn't know what he's talking about.

    ANYWAYS. Most of you guys aren't going to pass 5GB unless you tether a LOT and/or use your phone as your primary internet source, so don't worry about it. If you do use your phone as your primary internet (I've done that before for a few months), then you just have to figure out how to ration it so that you don't hit your cap. Or pay the extra $10. Or get internet at home.

    ok till now i thought i was granfathered in... my data meter stayed at zero and all was good. this morning i checked the web and used 4%... meaning that im not unlimited... but the mymetro app (yes i reinstalled this bloat for this exact reason to track my data) says my plan included unlimited data access. WTF!??!?!

    you miss the point, I got this phone and plan being told the price i pay will give me unlimited, now they go and change it, that's bull. If i find out they aren't honoring the agreement made when i got this plan I will be canceling both phones. and don't give me this contract crap. .

    Yep they shot them selves in the foot with this stupid idea of theirs.

    crazy theory, maybe they want to push people off 4g, raised the price sour people on 4g then they don't have to spend the money updating towers and such.

    no it says i have 10% left meaning 100mb, they warn you when you have 10% bandwidth left on your data plan. if u dont get this txt then ur safe.
     
  25. h4x0rj3ff

    h4x0rj3ff Chemist

    ok so by this logic you have a total of 1tb of data a month? where is metro getting there numbers because i was at 4% with ~400mb of data used so my monthly allotment would have to be 10gbs... i am so lost with the new data plans and everything about the grandfathered in bs. hope im not confusing anyone cus im not sure if im still following myself...
