Why stay in the Cape when you can be in the WAVE?




I believe I read recently that Simple Choice plans come with 200MB of tethering included. Is that accurate?

I'm seriously considering switching from AT&T because they suck and I hate them, but I have a few questions:

1) I get lovely cell signals at my house. We have a Microcell from AT&T, is there some sort of similar thing for T-Mobile? I googled (granted, quickly) and couldn't find any mention of a cell booster or anything. We'd almost certainly need one.

2) Is there any sort of requirement that the phone you trade in be a smartphone? The phone I regularly use has a busted screen, so its a no go from what I read above, however I have an older lovely dumb phone that has no such issues. Could I trade that in?

3) I have to trade in something to get the ETF reimbursement, right?

4) I don't live anywhere near a physical T-Mobile store. Will I have to go into a store to do this, or is there some way I can ship the phones in or whatever?

5) I have a corporate discount through my employer (15% I think), I'm assuming that only applies to the service itself, not to the monthly payment on the phone, right?

Sorry, that's a lot more questions than I thought.
1) No but some/most models offer wifi calling

2) No it can be a featurephone/dumbphone

3) Yes

4) I can't answer this but I'd assume you can do it over the phone/internet somehow

5) I would assume you're correct

All metered data with Simple Choice is eligible for tethering- so if you're on the base 500MB, it's all fine to tether with, :10bux: 2.5GB is all tether-able, "Unlimited" $20 plan is 2.5GB for tethering and unlimited on-device. There are 4.5GB, 6.5, etc plans available for tethering-heavy cases, but I'm not sure anyone ever takes them. The various tricks of leaning on HTTPS, VPNs, or useragent modifications can help you avoid detection, but are probably more work than most people are willing to put in.
Thanks for this.
