Unlimited is UNLIMITED.... The terms and conditions make any refernce to playing nice, reasonble use, consideration for others, or data hogging ... Especially when these high end pda devices are loaded from the carrier with data sucking apps... Sounds more like AT&T, VZW & T mo is setting their subscribers up for failure ... They are NOT protecting their network or ensuring that all users have a consistent experience by putting heavy users in time out until the end of their cycle or charging an average of $10 GB Penalty the are doing it for the bottom line ... To achieve an obtuse operating margin. If I have the money they would not care if I used mulitple terrabytes and my neighbor on the same network couldnt get anything due to my usage as long as I ante up at the close of the cycle.

It's all about greed and EXPLOITING the shift in how subscribers use their phones .... Sprint can offer unlimited.... The only reason that the other carriers are doing this is the same reason a dog can lick his own balls... Because he can. No other reason.
