    I see conflicting reports re extra charges for using T-Mobile’s 4G.

    I’m currently paying $79.99+tax for 3G (fully owned Nexus One) on their Even More Plus Unlimited Talk + Text + Web plan. Would the monthly bill stay the same if I got one of their 4G phones (full price/non-subsidized)?

    And also, do they currently charge for tethering on the 4G phones?

    You know where this commercial series is going, right? Cute girl, cute guy. The guy is the iPhone, the other guy is AT&T. The girl is supposed to be the MyTouch 4g, but she must also be the T-Mobile network. In the last episode, they’ll forget that she was the MyTouch and she’ll just be the network, and they’ll get married, representing the iPhone coming to T-Mobile.
