8X memory

It only comes with 16GB internal and no Mirco SD card slot.

Really, only 16GB and that's it?

Yet the 8S has 4GB internal but does have a Mirco SD card slot.

Wonder why their so skimpy with their high end phone when it comes to memory?

Everything's in the cloud!

(I imagine that's their answer.)

LOL Rich.

The thing is that if I am not on wifi that cloud will burn through data pretty quickly (which is what most carriers wants, as it forces you to change up your plan or pay overages either way the carrier wins).

The carrier does not 'win' if you get hit with an overage charge, that is actually when the carrier LOSES.....the point of overage fees is not about raising revenue (and if it was, they wouldn't be so eager to waive them as they do more than 90% of the time), overage fees are a tool to change customer behavior by offering incentives...the proverbial 'carrot and stick'...the point of setting overage fees is to NOT have to charge them.....if the overage actually is charged then that means that the customer behavior was NOT changed which means that the carrier LOST....

Or its a way to make money remember the carriers number one priority (any business) is to make money. Correct that the overages are a way to train you to be frugal or step up to the next level. Luckily i have grandfathered unlimited data so i couldnt care less lol.

Then how come almost no one ever actually pays an overage charge?

Come on don't be naive here, you know how the system works....a customer gets an overage, calls in, raises a fit....the fee is waived....that is what happens 90% of the all my years in the wireless business I am not aware of a single instance of a customer calling in, demanding an overage fee get waived, and this NOT happening by the end of the call....

The point of the overage is to get the customer's attention, get them to call in so that you can then lecture them about being more responsible with their wireless usage.....and then waive the fee....

I mean really. Where is it that they wave 90% of said overages? I must move there.
