How to use Music Freedom

Music Freedom is enabled automatically if you've got an eligible plan - there's nothing you need to do! However, we've got a few tips on how to avoid using data:

  • Use the specific music streaming app on your device.
  • Don't stream to devices using Mobile Hotspot or tethering.
  • When connected to Wi-Fi, your device uses zero data regardless of your streaming choices.

Non-music streaming data

  • Most music streaming services include small amounts of non-music streaming data, such as album art and pic advertisements.
  • Non-music data does count against your high-speed data bucket. The amount of data varies by streaming partner and the device being used.
  • If you stream music for hours at a time, you can expect to experience an increase in your data usage.


Roaming experience

  • International availability of streaming services does vary, so make sure to check with your streaming service provider before you go.
  • If you're roaming domestically, you're subject to roaming data limits.
  • Simple Choice North America plans: Streaming with Music Freedom doesn't count against your data allotment while traveling in Mexico or Canada.
  • Simple Choice plans: You get unlimited data in 215+ countries and destinations. Streaming with Music Freedom while abroad never counts against your domestic high-speed data.
