T-Mobile Hit with Lawsuit Over 'Unlimited' Data Plan
Yep it's true
I asked if there was a data cap for excessive use, to which I was told "no, it is completely unlimited." (Unsurprisingly, a bit of research proves otherwise.)
2) The T-Mo store in the mall (aka the booth that makes Verizon Wireless salesmen look like Warren Buffet) was telling me if I Jailbroke my iPhone and came to T-Mobile I could save money by not paying for home internet.

But obviously there has to be a cap....otherwise you will have a tiny minority of people using up the entire network, cutting everyone else off...which isn't right
It's like 'all you can eat' buffets....a time limit is implied else the f...
