I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

I usually defend AT&T and tell people I am happy with my service. If they do this, I may start looking for a new carrier. This doesn't really make a good impression on prospecting customers.

It's AT&T, they will probaly start throttling us after 1Gig

The last reason for me to stay with AT&T was the grandfathered data usage. You can count me gone if I get hit with a new limited policy. I'll go with the better customer service, lower prices and less dropped calls at that point.

When AT&T forced people to sign up for unlimited plans regardless if they actually used any data they opened the door. Rather than expecting users to anticipate a change, I would have expected AT&T to anticipate a change. But they didn't, and forced people to overpay for data access. Now the burden is upon them to improve their network to accommodate these data plans they forced upon users.Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. -- M.C. Escher

Awesome... Thanks AT&T. Every month you give me a reason to shoot you the middle finger. Every month without fail, you screw up my bill. Now, I use about 3gb a month on data and 1/3 of the month I'm gonna have to do it at Edge speeds. One day I do surely hope to see you bought out. Fitting enough, I have a feeling that one day, it will be Apple Inc.

Lemme put it like this.......... If it were "only 5 % of AT&T users" then AT&T wouldn't be spending so much time on it......Screw #Winning, I'm #Juanning

I don't want to sound like a moron, but how are you guys getting your data usage in gb?
On my bill it's listed in Msg/KB/MB Used: 1,132,464 which I translate to around 1.2gb.
I called AT&T to see if I could lower my plan to save some money, but was told that I use around 2.5-3.5 gb a month.

I really hope its higher than 2gb because that's just like having the already existing data capped plan.
I'm also guessing the data capped plans will be throttled too? If not, then it might be better to switch to a data capped plan and not be throttled, that is if you're not downloading like 50GB a month..
Data rollover would be awesome but I have a feeling AT&T won't be providing us with that any time soon. Just saying

I'm not sure if this as ever been said or mentioned. I have Had unlimited data since the cingular days. then AT&T took over. Now I have been paying $30 a month for that unlimited service for awhile. Now. there wasnt that much online or use of DATA back then. no FB basically just surfing the web. email and so on. So basically i was paying more for unlimited DATA and not that much use for it. So in a way AT&T was making money off us back in the day for years. SO now that there is so much stuff that u can do on the web now. So what im saying is that I think AT&T needs to let us the UNLIMITED DATA people alone. They OWE us fro ripping us off all those years b4. wait till Sprint gets iphone. and see how many people jump ship from AT&T. sprint as unlimited data still

their data is already capped at 3 mbps and in some areas you cant even get that speed i can barely get 1mbps sometimes. their 3G speeds blows. they got holes in their networks. so much revenue just to provide ****** service and not to improve their network. so is this what tmobile merge will be like. miserable for 3mbps on already throttled network.
07-29-2011, 12:15 AM #39
Do you really think Sprint will keep unlimited once they get the Iphone? Lets take Verizon for example.

Oh you poor guys ... I feel for you.
My operator in Finland is also an *******. First they offer me this outrageous data plan for my cellphone.1 GB of data transfer for 1.34 USD and if I go over 1GB they might throthle my plan, but not nececerely. And the speed is measily 0.5 mbit.
Also the bastards offer me 50 gigs with unlimited speed for 20 USD. And finally they rub it in even more by offering totally unlimited plan both speed / data amount for 28 USD.
Finally they really kicked my groins by telling me that they will give me -20% mobile customer bonus, for having both mobile and internet stick in their network.
Also they told me not to tether, because they couln't care less and they won't do nothing to stop me.
