Is T-Mobile's UNcarrier 4.0 free incoming calls while roaming? We'll find out January 8th at CES

Larger data caps? Free tethering? That's what comes to mind

Free thethering is definitely not going to happen. You know how much data people would give off in a month? I've already hit 30GB this month with just my Note 3 alone. Imagine if I gave off internet to my coworkers.

That, and using your phone to tether to a computer would exponentially increase your data consumption. I consume so much more data on a computer than on my smartphone....it's not even funny. Steam, torrents, spotify, web browsing, hulu, netflix, youtube, podcasts....that stuff adds up quick

I'm at 30GB without Netflix. If Netflix was added to the equation, I'd hit 50GB easily. Breaking Bad = addiction.

I use about 5-8 GB a month on my phone. (I'll probably use more now that spotify lets me stream my playlists for free) I use about 300GB per month (sometimes even more) on my computer....I'm not a big enough jerk to tether and use that kind of data

They love my house, on a low usage month I use atleast a terabyte. My last months bill said I used 4 terabytes because I redownloaded all 400 of my PC games while streaming HD content pretty much 12+ hours a day.

technically you do get free tethering. They cap you with speed however. But seriously, for people that do not use tons of GB. A unlimited + 12.5gb of tether for 40$ is cheap imo.
Unlimited on that plan my phone will never decrease in speed, but tethering will take a hit at 12.5gb.

Rumor is T-Mobile will pay your Early Termination Fee if you want to go to T-Mobile !!!!

If that is true sprint will become the 4th largest carrier.

Agree, Sprint is terrible I'm definitely disappointed with their service. If this "others are hoping that T-Mobile will pay any contract termination fees for users switching from another carrier" is true, I'm definitely switching over to T-Mobile and hopefully the Sony Xperia Z1 will be waiting for me by then!

I would be definitely okay with pay as you go hotshot. I always finish the free 2.5gb of hotshot tethering early in the month and I find myself wanting more all month long.

Paying for a etf would definitely help motivate people to make a move who actually want to leave their current provider but that would also be a hit or miss so it would be more adventitious for T-Mobile to do something that's more win win for them and the consumer.
