Question related to Cellular Data and restrictions..

Since we're on the subject of T-Mobile USA, who was kind enough to send me a notification via SMS that my 10 megabytes of roaming data  allotment was all used up yesterday while driving a long stretch of I-77 between somewhere in mid-Ohio all the way to somewhere about Wytheville, VA, I'm pretty sure the fine print says the unlimited data is only useful while on their network which we all know to be anything but nationwide.  

Heck, right now I'd just be happy to get some sort of data at all riding the rural stretches of major highways.

The upside is my bill dropped considerably by switching from AT&T so it goes both ways.

I am a customer of a carrier who advertises "Unlimited Nationwide 4G data", but limits their customers to 50MB per month while traveling in an area they do not have coverage (Alaska, for example). I've never heard of such a policy in regards to a "Nationwide" plan.. I thought the entire idea of saying nationwide was to represent you were covering the ENTIRE NATION.
