    No profanity. If you aren't mature enough to express yourself without profanity, you don't belong here.

    No "Rated-R." PG-13 content is allowed. Come on, kids read these forums.
    As for the article itself, it sounds like a neat idea, although I'm somewhat surprised that Apple let this into the App Store. Good for them if it works well, though. Seeing as how I'm on wi-fi for 95% of my day, my current 200MB data plan is plenty for me. I might try this if I ever go on an extended trip where I might not be around wi-fi much.

    I am well aware of that. I read it when I signed up. From what I can tell the other guy wrote, it wasn't profanity for the sake of profanity. Censoring profanity used in a tasteful or clever way I have a problem with. If someone curses, just to curse, then yeah he needs a talking to.

    In order to keep the thread on track, I will no longer respond to threads about my original censorship comment. PM me if you like debating it.

    So this App makes changes to your Carrier settings on your mobile device and Apple approved it? This means it makes changes to Settings.app and then all other applications that use data are routed through somewhere else in addition to AT&T?

    How the hell did that make it through the App Store gauntlet?

    The technology sounded similar to how Opera made their browser end up on the iPhone when it came to compressing content before sending it to your device for 'faster' load times but this sounds like a whole different approach.

    Either way, I'm still on Unlimited data even though I got the tethering text from AT&T last week. Waiting on a mywi 4.0 fix to hide that

    Please stay on topic. This is not a discussion about what kind of language is allowed on MMi. If you want to discuss that I suggest making a thread in the chit chat section.

    Has anyone tested an uninstall to verify that all settings are put back in place afterwords? I'd hate to test this, then find out it won't work AND not be able to roll back.

    Thanks!

    I too am surprised apple approved this. It opens the settings app and installs a network profile.

    However, it is halving my data usage. I can see this saving me $40/month.

    Everyone gets the privilege when you calling "jailbreak Genius" that. It's not really and insult with him, it's more like stating a fact.

    Also I will not debate this, and get this thread anymore off topic. You can PM me if you want to have a censorship discussion.

    IDK where the post went but whoever suggested turning on native backgrounding for Safari, Settings, and Onavo that worked. Now question is do we have to keep these backgrounded even native? I hope not. I keep Safari backgrounded by default but I prefer not to keep Settings and Onavo from backgrounding.

    If anyone wants to test this out simply turn off the native backgrounding for Onavo and Settings. Check your stats, watch a few Mb YouTube video and then recheck your stats in like 10 minutes.

    No, I turned native backgrounding off after setting up the app and it still works fine.
