T-Mobile to add new, lower cost data plan option for smartphone users
Those smartphone users on T-Mobile who don't access the internet that often, are miffed at having to pay the same $30 per month data charge as those who are constantly browsing the web. The good news is that those close to the situation say that the carrier will soon offer smartphone users another option that can sharply lower the monthly bill.

According to these insiders, starting in November, T-Mobile will offer those using smartphones, 200MB of data per month for $9.99. If you decide to take the carrier up on this lower monthly plan and you start to realize that you are consistently going over the 200MB threshold, you can change to the unlimited $30 monthly offering.

This is very good news. Hopefully they have an option for those who want limited texts too. Then I just might make the switch to an HD7.

i'm dreading the day everyone starts tiered data pricing and unlimited data goes the way of the dinosaur.

It only makes sense. With their meager 3G coverage, I doubt many of their users can go over 200mb even if they wanted to!!!

In my area it gets worse, try meager EDGE coverage. In the Shreveport La area, I got GPRS only with T-Mobile on my Blackberry 8900 as recently as one month ago. While there is 3G in the area, I refused to shell out hundreds for a new smartphone because their 2G network was still in 2003. There was no reason for me to have a smartphone with them, as it was nearly unusable without wifi. I now have Verizon, and even when my phone drops to 1X, it's miles ahead.
