said by r81984:Since SMS uses signaling channels and was designed for very short msgs, this has potential to cause problems for other cellphone users. TMO will find a way to kill this quickly, as they should.
Great idea to get back at providers for caps and unrealistic data prices.
Why only Tmobile?

said by hottboiinnc:I have an android smart phone on ATT with no data plan.
very true. Especially since Android phones have data plans and a data plan can be had included in unlimited usage (including voice and text) for $50 before taxes. But if your buying a smart phone you're already going to need data. It's a moot app that will be removed and or blocked from TMO phones.
I use wifi and txt. I see no point of buying a data plan when you can use wifi. In a rare occasion I would need to look something up with no wifi, data over txt would be perfect.
This would be great if I could use it on ATT as I have unlimted messaging.

said by iansltx:Yeah, Sprint charges MMS against data.
They're using MMS, which is standard data, to download the actual pages. SMS is only used to push URL requests. Unless you're surfing up an absolute storm, you won't be sending very many SMSes.
Standard disclaimers apply.

A great way For T-Mobile users to start to getting used to how their mobile data will be like with AT&T.

Re: lynx Mobile lynx!
Is that a lynx in your pocket, or are you just glad to be online?

said by JackKane :don't most carriers unlimited text plans include unlimited MMS? i know my plan with verizon does.
Which means that they are using MMS - indeed they say as much - and therefore requires a true data connection of some kind. SMS is not the same as MMS, folks.
