I only had 200 texts a month on my and my wife's phones. She got an iPhone and moved to 1000 texts while I canceled texts altogether and went with textfree app. Now AT&T has upped their minimum data plan to 300 mb/15 or 3 gb/30. I am near wifi all the time so I don't need a data plan much. I use any means to reduce to spending I'm stuck with. Seems the service decreases while the price increases.

All the at&t hate is silly and is making me LoL a lot. I have no issues with my service or customer service when it comes to at&t. Of course I wish my bill of $169 A month for 2 iphones was lower but that's the price of doing business. 600 minutes family with rollover, unlimited family texting with free to other cell phones. I kept my unlimited and the wife is on the 500mb plan.
IF I had an issue with my service in any way I would certainly not stay with them and then come onto a forum and ***** about them...... If I'm dumb enough to stay with a company that isn't providing me the service I pay for that's on me not at&t.

That's exactly why so many people hate AT&T. I honestly can't stand them.Great minds discuss ideas.
Average minds discuss events.
Small minds discuss people.

I'm waiting because I've already bought a 4s. If I left today and went VZW, I'd either have to buy a 4s cash price, or burn my contract discount to get one a few months before the 5 drops. I'm not dropping a bunch of cash to walk with the same phone and still no LTE.

All corporations are greedy! The company then hires men like Stephenson to run their businesses, with the goal of making tons more $$. Its what makes the world go round. Will ALWAYS be the way. No one NEEDS and iPhone. No one NEEDS a cell phone. We take on these bills on our own free will then ***** about the amount. Some of you were lied to about UNLIMITED..or what it really means but beyond that..you all knew what you were getting into. I mean, they sell the phone for $400 less than its worth..they have to recoup somewhere. I don't agree with AT&T or any of the other provider tactics. I just know how business works. If you know that then you know there is no real story here..just a way to ruffle feathers of us that are ignorant to business. Next story please.

With crap like this spewing from AT&T top exec's, I'm almost praying that Apple becomes a US carrier just so I can switch from AT&T to Apple.

Ever worked with someone you absolutely couldn't stand? To the point where if you were to entertain and excercise every single vile thought that entered your mind concerning your co-worker, your actions would internationally replace the phrase "going postal" in a matter of seconds? As a result, every state in the Union would agree to forgo the traditonal forms of the death penalty and allow the victims families to cut your eye lids off with a rusty can top, break your arms, allow them to heal then break them again in the same exact spot, have a professional boxer pugilisticlly work your kidneys for 3 hrs, have a thai boxer work your liver for 3 hrs and have your everyday street thug whisper in your good ear (other one was pulled off with someone's bare hands) bragging about the drive by that claimed your breast cancer stricken mother's life.
Or you could just deal with the work environment, make use of your paychecks and rinse repeat every week.
What would you choose?

Or you could just get another job...He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Although AT&T practice is greedy they are a business after all... As already mentioned they are in it for the $$$, remember no one needs a smart phone, no one.
I hate the fact that companies are monopolizing in coloration, almost it seams. These days most companies are overpriced with smart phone plans. Time to go back and treat cell phone as it should be treated - old school Nokia strictly for calling.
I have been one of those who 'was' very upset with 30$ - 3GB cap (since I am on grandfathered unlimited). What is 3GB these days, really less than a DVD movie (with respect to GB). Perhaps, more rational approach would have been to lower data speed based on network load, but I recognize that there is money to be made so... it is what it is. Ultimately, we have two choices; leave or satay.Hit the thanks button if I helped in any way

The one thing about At&t that has always been the most ridiculous thing to me, which also spotlights the greed, imo, is...how can you charge separately for data and text messaging? the so called almighty $30 unlimited data plan? not when you have to pay an additional $20 per month for unlimited text messaging. Jesus, when did text change from being data? Everyone else, text and data, same thing...

Text and data have never been the same thing.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
