    Using Slingbox with a t-Mobile contract

    Phoenixmobile

      Hi,

       

      I'm using a HTC HD 2 phone with a German T-Mobile contract (including an internet flat). I heard T-Mobile Germany inhibits a streaming connection with this flat? Can anybody confirm this or has further information?

       

      Thanks in advane.

       

      Regards

            You'll probably have to ask your carrier what the rules are for watching streaming video (probably best to ask it in general and not say SlingBox by name)

             

            I don't know about other places but here in the US I think most cellular carriers have something in the fine print that basically says you can't use the data for anything but email and basic web browsing.  That said, I know over here they don't really bother anyone unless you go over the maximum monthly data limit (I think most "unlimited" plans allow 5GB/month) then they start charging overage fees by the megabyte.

             

            Personally, I make an effort to find a WiFi hotspot if I will watch more than a couple minutes, then I'm not using my cellular internet so they can't complain what I do.
