    Well using wifi is all well and good when you are at home or somewhere that offers it. I on the other hand am not in that situation. I'm an over the road truck driver and I'm only home a few days a month. I eat through my 3GB before I get throttled just a few days into the bill cycle. I don't always have the luxury of wifi. I got to have something to keep me entertained. I won't lie I watch Netflix a lot and Skype with my wife often. I'm out here making sure the goods you buy when you go shopping is there when you need/want it and I'm being punished because I don't have access to wifi all the time. I think the cap to be throttled should be something like 10GB cause I rarely even with Netflix and Skype hit that.

    If you want the truth...here it is. At&t does not care about their customers. At&t cares about taking their customers money.

Now requiring said plan was probably a bigger mistake IMHO, since that certainly gave people a false sense of entitlement with the nature of the word 'unlimited.'

    Mobile data use was already expected to skyrocket before the first iPhone debuted, just due to smartphones, Blackberry, feature phones with video streaming, and Laptop tethering/USB sticks started becoming commonplace.

    That said, I wasn't shocked that unlimited plans are being punished. Just pray AT&T doesn't kill your entire plan out of the blue like they did with old ATTWS mMode or Dobson customers (under the guise of migrating customers to newer, cheap devices).
    Wm ui was a clunk of ****. As was Symbian, and anything else. Those devices were downloading text, and tiny graphics. What apple did was spearheaded the development of the mobile ui... Then android, and mobile web standards like html5. It brought broadband hungry mobile interfaces to the masses.
