Part 2...

I would also remind all of you that ALL of the contracts I have seen reserve the right of the company to modify the terms at any time. "Grandfathering In" is a great promotional tool, but let me remind all of you that it is not guaranteed - and furthermore there is NO GUARANTEED SPEED on the services. Your contract does not guarantee that you get full speed all the time, even if you have "unlimited" data.

I have all my old contracts scanned in to the computer, so I took the time to peruse them. In addition to wording on all of them which does not guarantee speed or unlimited access, all of the contracts state that you usage can be limited in any way the company sees fit, up to and including termination, if you "abuse the network, or that your use of the network interferes with anyone elses use.

Boost mobile puts it in the best, plain English verbiage I have seen yet..."Unlimited DOES NOT mean unreasonable.

Remember that all the cellular companies have to do is send you a letter by snail mail or even a text or email message saying that the terms are changing. Be happy if they are still being even halfway reasonable - because they are under no requirement to be that way.

Tiered data and minutes are here to stay. And changing the terms of your contract is a right that they have all reserved - and does not terminate your commitment to them.
