T-Mobile G1 data plans

T-Mobile provides G1-specific data plans with prices and features.

T-Mobile just informed us of data plans specific to the T-Mobile G1 (these do not include the voice plan). The first plan has unlimited Web, e-mail, and messaging for $35. This plan includes:

  • Unlimited Web
  • Unlimited e-mail
  • Unlimited messaging (text, picture, and IM)
  • T-Mobile HotSpot data access

The second plan has unlimited Web and e-mail and 400 messages for $25. This plan includes:

  • Unlimited Web
  • Unlimited e-mail (unlimited, part of Web/data)
  • Unlimited IM on Google Talk
  • 400 total messages (text messages, picture messages, non-Google Talk IM)
  • T-Mobile HotSpot data access

Update: We just heard that the data plans aren't really unlimited. According to the T-Mobile website:

"If your total data usage in any billing cycle is more than 1GB, your data throughput for the remainder of that cycle may be reduced to 50 kbps or less. Your data session, plan, or service may be suspended, terminated, or restricted for significant roaming or if you use your service in a way that interferes with our network or ability to provide quality service to other users. Some devices require specific data plans; if you do not have the right plan for your device, you may not be able to use data services. Some downloads, such as movies, music, and games, not included. Domestic use only."

Sure you'll be paying a flat fee for your data so in that sense it's "unlimited," but if T-Mobile decides to cap your bandwidth to 50 kbps or less, what use is it? That's less than even EDGE speeds. We're hoping that this is just standard legalese and that T-Mobile won't actually do this, but this isn't looking too good.

Update Sept. 25: Looks like T-Mobile has backtracked on its 1GB data cap. Find out more here.
