T-Mobile's new policy to disappoint smartphone and texting users?
Some negative changes affecting smartphone and heavy-messaging users on T-Mobile might be about to happen soon. BGR informs that starting from June, all smartphones (both new activations and upgrades) will need to have a data plan. Sorry folks, you will still be able to surf the web through Wi-Fi, but not before you pay for your data service… The only customers getting away with their skin will be those who opt for either the BlackBerry Pearl or the BlackBerry Pearl Flip.

The other part of the bad news concerns subscribers on T-Mobile’s Unlimited Domestic Messages for Families. Again, sometime in June, the carrier is expected to raise the current $19.95 rate to $24.99. Not pretty cool actually, but what can you do? You can still give your opinion a voice and share your thoughts with us!

What if you ALREADY own a Blackberry/smartphone? Will this pricing be retroactive? I only ask because a friend of mine owns a Blackberry Curve with T-Mobile.

This is only if you upgrade or are a new customer, since it's GSM I'm thinking that is only through them does the upgrade change goes into effect

Well, Tmobile had to go with the times I guess. Besides, when the new Android phones hit on their network, everybody will want and need the data plans anyways.

i only know one person who has tmo and they have to drive miles away just to get to a store. maybe if they would build more stores they would be more successful.

Ignorance. Please don't go into the business field. Better yet. T-Mobile should hire you...that way they can improve their business model.
