Yes, that's what I thought till this morning until I logged into my
online T-Mo account to verify the changed plan. To my utmost irritation
I found myself in the wrong $30 Monthly4G plan, with 1500 minutes of
talk or messages, but only 30 MB of data. This was despite I had
specifically insisted that I wanted the *other* $30 plan (the Walmart
Plan.) Naturally I called them right away and after some song & dance
from them about how I was not really qualified for that one, they
eventually gave it to me after explaining to them that the original rep
knew that, too, but made an exception in my case because I was going to
walk otherwise. The problem is that you never get to speak with the same
reps on successive calls and I think in my case some supervisor decided
that the original rep overstepped her authority and he/she then
unilaterally changed my acct to the other plan without notifying me
Well, you have to watch these guys like an eagle because they will try
to screw you if you don't keep an eye on them. I am really looking
forward for that first bill with this plan!

Yes, that's my thinking, too.
