Let uncle Dan (Hesse) take care care of you. He will let you take all the data you want or could care for... I used 45 GB of data last month... My speed was not throttled and I didn't get a nasty gram from a bean counter and my bill did not have overage on it.

Lex Luthor voted in as new CEO of at&t. At&t scientists attempted to Clone Hitler, Miniturize the Nuclear Bomb, and put up new cell towers that emit Gamma radiation. When questions about this, CEO Luthor stated that although the new towers do melt flesh and cause a horrible slow death, data speeds have never been faster!

Will the gamma rays be REAL-LIFE gammas or "make-me-turn-into-Lou-Ferrigno" gammas?

Screw those douchebags, my fat brotha. I don't use home internet because I travel constantly. So much for streaming Hulu, Netflix, or my Dish DVR.

public Wi-Fi sucks ass and 97% of it isn't sufficient to use YouTube, much less quality apps. So yeah. too bad.

What's the video quality like? Coming through your smartphone to your tv.

Someone like yourself is PROOF that heavy data users don't bring down the quality of the network sooo easily. Since I got my Samsung Droid Charge, 10wks ago I haven't used less than 10gb's in a billing cycle.

Streaming video is OK. it's never the best. Cancelled Hulu for that reason. But I've taken to downloading my dvr from "the cloud," or internet storage: whatever term is accurate. That gives me the best quality.

Someone like him isn't PROOF that heavy data users don't bring down the quality of network because he is in the minority. If EVERYBODY used 45 GB a month there would be a problem.

Considering a huge chunk of the human population spends so much time on Facebook, the same can be said about them. People seem to prefer Facebook and txt messaging to over the REAL WORLD. It's really sad.

Or, it's not. I seldom use Facebook and its ilk. But, I'm on the road constantly. THIS IS MY HOME INTERNET for all intents and purposes. Also, It's difficult to determine when you're talking to people to whom REAL data usage is relevant, and when you're talking to bitter, nasty 90's throwbacks--angry that when they try to pick up women (half their age) in bars by flashing their BLACKBERRY it's met with laughter or ridicule. In 2002, they were cutting edge. That's a little off topic, but who the **** is anyone to say how someone should or shouldn't use UNLIMITED data that they pay for?

Presicely! I've been saying that for like 5yrs. Everyone uses their smartphone diferently.

I use mine from everything to paying bills online, viewing news videos & porn, going to tech & movie related websites, to listening to internet radio & podcasts. And of course emailing, txt'g, calling, calender reminders, all sorts of things, heck, even as a flashlight!
