There has been quite a bit of confusion surrounding the new T-Mobile/Wal-Mart $30 prepaid Monthly4G rate plan and we hope this image can clear a few things up. First and foremost, you must get a new number in order to take advantage of this offer as existing customers cannot move over to this rate plan with their existing number. As you can see in the image, there are no exceptions to this requirement. Secondly, before you decide to take advantage of this rate plan, think long and hard about what your needs are, as you can’t go back to the plan if you opt for it and then move away from it.
Still, with all the little exceptions necessary to take advantage of this offer, it’s still one heck of a deal. That is, unless you need to surf HTTPS websites such as Gmail, Yahoo or Facebook. Sites with HTTPS require a secure log-in and we’re hearing from countless folk who have early-adopted this new rate plan that they are unable to visit those sites from the phone browser.
We’re still looking for confirmation the secure website troubles are an actually block or just an a technical problem T-Mobile is aware of.
Let us know if you are having similar troubles connecting to secure websites.
