Leak suggests that T-Mobile is going to charge overages with its 200MB data plan

Leak suggests that T-Mobile is going to charge overages with its 200MB data plan
Who knows whether or not T-Mobile is actually going to go forward with the move, but according to a recently leaked document, it suggests that Big Magenta is possibly reverting to an overage model instead of throttling with its 200MB data plan.

Obviously, this is a remarkable shift in change for a carrier that’s known for their “no overage” policy in the last few months – while keeping away from a structured tiered format like the competition. However, they’re changing the model with the 200MB plan “in order to remain competition.” Still, those who are on the current plan will be grandfathered in starting on August 13rh – so it’d be a good idea to get in on it now while you still can.

As it stands, customers who go over their allotment will be charged $0.10 per MB they go over. Fortunately, they’ll be aware of the possibilities of being charged ahead of time since they’ll be notified once hitting the 180MB and 200MB marks.

Even though it seems as though it's only affecting their lowest allotment data plan, we’re curious to see over time whether or not other plans will be affected as well.

Selling T-mobile has been by far the most confusing thing I have ever done. They change the plans every other week and have 2 different plan offers depending on where you go to get your phone. I'm thankful I also sell AT&T and VZW to keep me sane..

They are going to do something that most carriers would not... notifiy you of the chance of overage two times. once before 200mb and once at 200mb. after that if you are a retard and dont call in to pay $5 or $10 more for that line to get 2gb they will only charge you at most $35 overage. Verizon and AT&t will f**k you into oblivion just to make sure they keep that 55% profit margin on billions of dollars. On a side note the 2gb plans are almost the same price as 150 or what ever mb at vzw or at&t.

Verizon notifies cusotmers 4 times before they see any overage. Get your facts straight.

Great, that does not change the fact they will not charge you less than $30 per month for services. If you do go over that they will charge you $10 per gig. I have also yet to see these messages so thanks. But just remember that you are paying at least 33% more for verizon service. God forbid you go over 2gigs by one kb because that $10 bucks will just make your last email the most expensive you ever paid for.

you should also take in account that verizon doesnt even offer the 150mb plan anymore.

congrats to them it was not like that plan offered any value to anyone. It was just a way to up sell to the $30 in the end.
