AT&T Refreshes Data Plans, Adds iPhone Tethering
THIS SHOULD BE 100% ILLEGAL !
AT&T AND ANY OTHER COMPANY WHO CONDUCTS THIS DISGUSTING PRACTICE OF GREED SHOULD BE BOYCOTTED AND PUNISHED BY THE LAW FOR DEFRAUDING CONSUMERS. IT'S AMAZING HOW THE GOVERNMENT WILL STEP IN WHEN THEIR BEST INTERESTS ARE THREATENED BUT WHEN IT'S THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE PEOPLE, WHO GIVES A RAT DROPPING!? SO MAYBE I SHOULD PLAY THE TAX EVASION GAME AND WHEN I GET TAKEN TO COURT BY THE IRS AND THEY ASK ME WHY I DIDN'T PAY, I'LL SAY "WELL GEE I HAD USED A FEW EXTRA GIG'S THIS MONTH AND MY WIRELESS CARRIER WAS ABOUT TO SUSPEND MY SERVICE, WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO? NOT FULFIL MY CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATION?" FAN BOYS OF GREED PLEASE MOVE ON AS YOUR COMMENTS...
Also the modern day slavery remark in regards to cell phone data plans is just plain funny. It's hard to tell if you're serious or if you're doing a parody of a customer.
I LOVE LAMP!!!
Seriously... relax... breathe... calm the fek down.
Greed? They are giving you the option of getting *CHEAPER* options...
*CHEAPER*. Costs less. Opposite of more expensive....
1) you have no idea that companies are in business to make... MONEY. AT&T, Verizon Sprint and all the other companies out there are only offering you cellphone service so you pay ...
So I could have 15$ data on the IPHONE?
assuming I don 't go over 200MB? That's friggin sweet deal if 65% of users don't go over that amount already.
so much for your apps and playing games against others, you will blow up 200mb in about ...
I was angry about this until...
Now, I can see where some people don't have Wi-Fi access at work to stream stuff and I'm sorry, you're boned. I would say that the majority of people do though, and if you don't have Wi-Fi at home then you have other problems...
The tethering part is total BS though...
Knowledge is power
"Its refreshing to see, at last, an article about capping and overcharging which doesnÃ¢â‚¬™t start with the phrase Ã¢â‚¬Å“As we move forward toward a fair form of consumption-based chargingÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â, etc.
There IS NO fair form of consumption-based charging for bandwidth! Unlike processed water, gas, and electricity, bandwidth is not generated by backbone providers or ISPs, nor ...
Ha Ha Glad I'm me
Sending to pictures to friends while I travel really stinks. I should bring them all with me!

Any blah blah blah "violates terms of service" blah blah blah need not be posted, thanks in advance. Its been around a long time now and no one has had problems with bills.
I Don't Trust AT&T's Numbers.
I'd much rather pay $15...
You have to be a headdbanging idiot.
If one wants gsm, I think they should goto TMO, heck might even be an option for myself.
did you hear Verizon's announcement
*Breaking News* At&t says "Just kidding, we are keeping unlimited data too."
Who wants to bet on how long til VZW announces it is going tiered? I've got $10 on by 2 p.m. today June 2, 2010
Dan Heese must be just beaming right now
Minimum: $55 (450 mins, 200MB)
Average: $75 (450 mins, unlimited text, 200MB)
Max: $115 (unlimited mins, unlimited text, 2GB)
Minimum: $80 (450 mins, unlimited text/data)
Average: $80 (see above)
Max: $110 (unlimited everything)
So, ignoring the phones, since I don't want this to turn into an iPhone vs Android thread, wh...
2) The 4G Network right now is horrible.
3) Battery Life on 4G is so bad they advise you to keep it off.
4) There's a lot of factors at play here.
If you're tethering, Sprint charges $30.00 mor...
Are they @!#king nuts?
200MB? For $15.00? - First off, I don't even know who uses 200MB on their iPhone, and if they do, they're using it wrong. 200MB wouldn't even cover a month of application updates for the average iPhone user.
I don't believe that for a minute. Even when I spent a lot of time in an area with a very very very weak AT&T EDGE signal I hit 700MB/month.
And Why is this more expensive than the iPad? Seriously, that's just stupid- iPad users aren't even signing up for a service plan. At least give iPhone users a break for the ball-and-chain.
2GB? - I hit between 3 and 5 easily ever...
I understand some don't use a huge amount of data, But ...
LOLOL @ AT&T
Now is left to see what VZW LTE caps will be.
And as far as this goes, I think it's a great change. I don't use a ton of data every month and it'll be nice to actually pay for what I use vers...
