This is a discussion on T-Mobile vs. Verizon Nexus One within the Nexus One forums, part of the Google Phones category; Originally Posted by NexusWon And their "unlimited" data is supposed to be capped to 5 Gb a month, so it's not really unlimited at all ...
Limiting mobile phone tethering sounds like a limited data plan to me, but maybe we're just cheering for different teams.
Has T-mobile locked down their "unlimited" plans too? I haven't seen a clear answer. I did come across a post from a year an a half ago that they were locking down the T-Mobile usb modem data plans.
If they put a cap than they have no rights of calling it unlimited. Verizon's doesn't have cap either. Its just to find out if they tether. If you do indeed exceed 5gb and they find your not tethering, they can't do anything about it.
Verizon is changing the pricing structure (raising data prices):

I wonder if this will push more people to T-Mobile?
Have you been seeing all these incredibly annoying apple ads lately with that douche actor bragging about how his iphone is better than the droid (read AT&T is better than Verizon) because he can talk and go on the web at the same time?
I dunno if this is important to you at all but Tmobile can do voice and data, but i dont think the Verizon phone will be able to.
Frankly, though, how often would you use this besides answering a call during navigation or something...
I think it honestly depends on area. For certain areas T-Mobile gets perfect coverage and 3g. In other areas, tmo doesn't have ANY coverage. Verizon is more of a premium mobile SERVICE, having good coverage everywhere and in general being a better phone company.....
But there are pretty big price differences, and if verizon is gonna be putting limits and caps on their "unlimited" packages, that just unusuable for me. Tmobile is extremely affordable and gets close to perfect service 99% of the time where I live and travel, so it is ideal for ME. But others might not be this lucky and will have to go with verizon.
As far as multitasking, the nexus definitely can! I was on the phone with my bank while using gps and the teller was so confused by the robot lady giving directions as we talked. I also have been on a call while on the browser or aim. It's not generally useful other than being cool...
