If you are one of the lucky ones, you recently got a text from T-Mobile informing you that your service is getting updated to unlimited 4G LTE data at no extra charge. Unfortunately, I am not one of the lucky ones, how about you?
T-Mobile has been sending text messages out to select customers notifying them that on April 1st they'll be getting their cell phone plan automatically upgraded to unlimited 4G LTE good until the end of the year. At the end of the year your plan will revert back to its previous monthly LTE data allotment.
This seems like a great way to get people hooked on unlimited data where presumably T-Mobile hopes that by the end of the year, customers will convert their plans over to the more expensive unlimited LTE data plan. Likely those conversions would result in higher earnings for the carrier.
This upgrade is not without caveats though. Those who agree to the offer will lose their data stash. Streaming music service Rhapsody unRadio is not included with the offer. Your mobile hotspot/tethering data allotment will not increase, but remain at the level your original plan came with.
So has anyone out there got the offer and refused it? If so why?
