Doesn't change much

This doesn't fundamentally change anything, as many users, like myself, would rather have my phone work everywhere than have unlimited data.

In my case, T-Mobile seems too stubborn to upgrade their lousy 2G network in my area to something more up to date. I'd be quite happy to go back if they ever square that issue away. Downloading anything on an overloaded 2G network is pretty bad. Less than 50 kbits per second bad.

With all the sales they're making at the T-mobile stores in town though, they really should consider making upgrades soon.

Not only was data too slow or inoperable at times but my calls sounded like someone was underwater most of the time. Works terrific in the neighboring 3G/4G areas though.

That's always the big caveat with T-mobile, it's very location specific, if your always on edge, unlimited data is useless I agree and T-mobile's biggest problem I think isn't the lack of LTE or pricing structures that they keep changing, it's the amount of 2G only areas still around.

For many people however, like myself T-mobile works everywhere I go, so it's a good value for many in big metro areas.

I too

2G and overall coverage holes. Even if I lived in the city where T-Mobile has excellent coverage, I would have AT&T or Verizon (depending on which city) so that my phone would work when I travel.
