(I started that thread btw) I did some "research" into how much data would get your data cut off on Straight Talk and found that 100MB a day and 2GB a month are safe amounts to use. I haven't heard of anyone getting kicked off who followed both of those "rules".
However, with these SIM only deals, we have no idea what the "safe" data limit is, but I suspect its going to be no different. They may employ other measures (ie throttling) instead of kicking you off, but that remains to be seen.
Warning: If you're using an iPhone 4 and they give you a T-Mobile SIM...You WILL NOT get 3G data access. It only works on 2G Edge.
And speaking based on experience (a friend has their) iPhone 4 on T-Mobile is miserably slow, almost not worth getting...it's that slow. Especially not when you can pick up a 4G Android and pay even less for the phone.
Also, if you do manage to get on AT&T...1-2 GB a month is more than enough. The only way I managed to hit 3 GB on my AT&T Unlimited plan was by streaming music while I slept for a month And my 4S gets consistent speeds over 5 Mbps using HSPA+.
so is this like a lottery when it comes to what sim you get? This makes no sense. The only way I can avoid EDGE speeds is if I buy one AT&T phone and one T-mobile phone, buy their sim and throw away the non-3g sim. wow!!!
