Google made a lot of its hardcore fans angry last year with a divisive and frankly inexplicable policy change, but if you happen to be a T-Mobile customer, you can now regain your cherished unlimited Photos hoarding rights… at a cost. Specifically, $15 a month, which we’re pretty sure at least some of you will agree is a relatively low price to pay for this sweet, sweet perk.
More choice than ever, more choice than anyone else
In addition to being able to get a 500GB Google One tier in exchange for $5 a month, the “Un-carrier’s” subscribers have a special 2TB+ plan they can choose to enhance the “normal” $10 for 2TB subscription with unlimited Google Photos storage.
This way, you can ensure (once again) that all your photographs and videos will stay in (Google’s) cloud forever (or until Magenta changes its mind) at their original and full resolution even if you’re not part of the very small minority of smartphone users out there owning a Pixel 5 or “earlier .”
