    They sent me a text today telling me I have reached my 1024mb data limit blah blah although 4g stays on, but the speeds are same as metros 1x phone. I hope no one else will go through this shit and hopefully be grandfathered in the unlimited plan and anyway I had it for over 7 month, but they did this

    Well that sucks. What plan are you on? I'm on the 60 a month and it still says unlimited when I check my account. Even though we're not on contracts metro shouldn't mess with their existing customers. Bad move on their part.

    Well maybe you can try deleting the files in the throttle folder using Root browser. Its in Data~system~throttle. Make sure you make a backup in case you need to replace them.

    Could you give us an estimate on your monthly usage? I have not seen a change to my account, but I do not use much data. I would guess around 1GB per month. I am wondering if they are switching the heavy users to the new way of counting data even though they are supposed to be grandfathered in. That would be bad CS, but then again Metro is known for that...

    I am a heavy user and my data still shows unlimited. I use at least 40 gigs a month. I am guessing it takes a little longer for them to reach us on the west coast. (bay area) i only noticed the change in our voicemail options last week and i seen another thread about that from a few months ago.

    Never mins guys the data back to the normal speed today I guess they made a mistake when they sent that data limit text and throttle my speed since yesterday afternoon

    Did you call them?

    How much you paying for unlimited?

    They throttled my unlimited also. For a second I thought I was the only one.
