    Hey guys, first off I apologize if this question doesn't belong in this thread, but I wasn't sure where else to put it.

    I had a quick question regarding T-mobile's unlimited data plan cap limit. I have read some different sources online saying that there's a 10GB cap where the data speeds will throttle down to 2G after this limit is passed. Other sources have said that this cap was at 5GB.

    I was wondering if any of you guys knew for sure which of these is true. If it helps at all, I signed up for my unlimited data plan back in April of 2010 with my Behold 2, and am now currently using a Mytouch Slide.

    Hello Gary, welcome to Android Forums. Great to see you posting!

    I've moved your T-Mobile query to that carrier's forum here at AF. I hope you get an answer quicker here.

    Cheers. :)

    There are two different data caps.

    If you were to add a data plan to a monthly rate plan it's 10GB/mo of 3G before you get throttled.

    Or, if you were to have a data only plan, ie Android phone with just data or a USB data stick, it is 5GB/mo of 3G before you get throttled. In regards to having a smartphone on a data only option, I am not 100% certain that it is a 5GB cap, it could fall under the 10GB; I'm only saying that to stay safe.
