Thread: Verizon Wants to Limit Facetime Over 3G to Tiered Data Plans

is a discussion within the

iPhone News

forums, a part of the

General iPhone

section;
We need some more competition in the cellular sector. This is ridiculous, and has been for quite some time. 10 years ago I thought we'd all be on unlimited plans

    We need some more competition in the cellular sector. This is ridiculous, and has been for quite some time.

    10 years ago I thought we'd all be on unlimited plans for $30 a month by now - but it seems that Verizon and AT&T have agreed to extremely (suspiciously) similar plans.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there was some price-fixing going on here.

    The tweak is My3G

    Now y'all see why the take over of tmobile by AT&T will be a detriment to consumers. Because it's just gonna be AT&T and verizon doing whatever they pleases with their customers. Imagine if we put more powers in the hand of AT&T, by them acquiring tmobile. We r screwed. ( power in the hand of a fool is a dangerous weapon) WMD.

    That is nonsense. Landlines are constantly being upgraded to fiber and etc.. Fiber is expensive..

    I think it's pretty clear they already are doing whatever they please, no?

    And you pay more for the lines that utilize this. The $40 20mbit plan that the person I quoted was talking about is most likely standard cable which has been around for ages.

    All it would require is to block the ports FaceTime uses for video on the unlimited plan. That would be difficult to bypass on an iPhone, even jailbroken. It would then require a secondary device connection like the MiFi...

    Remember Verizon told the FCC they were against net neutrality, so don't expect a different response...

    They are already implementing limits to their prepaid brands (which are the money makers for them), so expect that to trickle to postpaid soon.

    There IS a tweak for FaceTime over 3G. It's called, Tango,Skype,My3G if you have a iPad2 You can Use PDANet, MyWi 4.0. I DOUBT Verizon will be able to SEEK out those whom are data hogs on Unlimited Like At&t does although I COULD be wrong & they probably aren't as Fast at detecting it either.
