Anyone on the old promo PYW 2011/2012 freedom/wind mobile plan?

Hey guys, i'm just wondering, did freedom update the data usages or something for this plan? Or for pay your way?

I remember when I applied there was no data. And if you did turn your data on you would get hit by overage charges. But the last two months i've been using data, and I checked my bill and was only charged like a dollar.

It says the rates should be $1/mb or pay per use would be 5 cents per/mb.

Kind of scared to contact them about this and get hit by overage charges lol, cause i'm just about to switch over to public mobile, but i'm trying to understand if there is actually data in my plan.

Here is what it says on my account page:


I'm assuming I have 5gb/month somehow?

Yup says you have 5 gigs and if you go over all they do is throttle your speeds!

I have the same plan, been using it since 2012 as well.

Unlimited incoming - use callback to do unlimited outgoing as well
Unlimited texting
Data at per use

$2/PYW - once you hit $2 charge on a single day, no charge for rest of the day. Eg. You can use as much data on a single day without going over $2.

Unless they changed this above recently...I don't see a point to get rid of your PYW.

I used 150mb the other day and was only charge 25 cents as well. The page mentioning your rate plan may not be all accurate.

Hey, if you do end up switching, let me know, I'm in need of a cheap plan for my elderly father and pyw would be the best.
