• Have An Unlocked Non T-Mobile Smartphone And Looking To Sign Up With Their Service? Read This First!


    So you have a phone you got from a carrier other than T-Mobile, but you are thinking about signing up with a T-Mobile plan. There are a few things you need to be aware of before you decide to make the plunge. The reason is, T-Mobile hasn't "modernized" their towers to support unlocked devices in many major populated areas. This is what I became aware of in a reply from the official T-Mobile USA Twitter account. So if you have a unlocked phone that is not from T-Mobile, even though it may have 4G capability, you may be stuck with a crumby 2G radio signal. Yep, you heard right. It just happened to me with my new AT&T BlackBerry Q10 device.

    Now keep in mind, I live in the middle of a major city (Salt Lake City, UT). So there is no excuse as to why T-Mobile hasn't updated their towers yet. I wish they could at least have explained this to me when I brought my non T-Mobile phone in to sign up to their pre-paid plan. With such a data rich world nowadays, 2G is painstakingly SLOW! Definitely not sufficient enough to enjoy any 4G capable device.

    The pre-pay plan I have costs me $60/month and comes with unlimited calls, text, and 2.5 GB of 4G data. After the 2.5 GB is reached, they bog the data speed down to 3G.

    As you can see, my device is not capable of taking advantage of what this plan has to offer, even though I'm paying for the extras. Yes, I'll be asking for a full refund.

    Have you been fooled by T-Mobile? Let us know in the comments!
