I live in a non 3g area that won't have 3g anytime soon. I am eligible for the 179.99 price and am out of contract.
Also the data stipulation is so silly. Its a 3g phone. 1gb is attainable for someone who is on their phone all the time. I hate that!
Grr tmobile! Grr!!
My theory that I'm hoping is correct is that the 25 data plan will not affect family messaging and your current messaging plan will overlap and cover your phone. My guess comes from that being the way it works with At&t. Bad reference but its all I have to go off of.
From what I understand this will knock off your family messaging bundle and you will be forced to add messaging to each line individually. Once I heard that I could not give them my money. Until they release some kind of family messaging bundle that will work with G1 also I can't do this
