Why I prefer unlimited data....

...even if I don't need it.
There is a lot of talk lately about saving money by switching away from unlimited data to a plan that more closely fits your average usage. I don't want to do that, and here's why: STRESS FREE SURFING!

If I have a limit to my usage, I will always have it in the back of my mind. Every time I go on-line I will be thinking about that limit. It takes all the fun out of using my phone as I see fit.

Sure, most months I could probably use a smaller tiered paln. Checking FB, email, and looking up a few websites doesn't use much. But maybe I have downtime and I want to stream some Pandora, or watch a bunch of stupid videos on youtube. I don't want to have to check my account first and see if I'm approac...

Precisely! Plus there are a lot of news apps that have video like CNN & FOX NEWS. I like to watch news videos, and as everyone knows video uses a whole lot more data than regular web sites. 2GB's/mo really isn't much. And with 4G speeds it's a lot easier to watch videos, they don't stop to buffer constantly like on 3G.

Yes, me too. I think this sucks. I have never gone over 1gb and I use it all I want. But, I think the new prices are too high (considering I already pay Verizon once for home internet) and I really don't like having to worry about it. So much for competition keeping the prices down - HA 🙂

ISPs have too much power.

You like unlimited data because if you're going to pay $30 anyway you might as well have unlimited...it's really that simple

I'm pretty sure I said what I meant. Yes, obviously if the price is the same, and one is limited while the other isn't, I'd want unlimited.
My point is that I'd want unlimited even if I have to pay more for it. To me, it's worth paying extra not to have to worry if I'm approaching a limit (even if I almost never do).

consumers are so silly. if you hardly ever approach your limit, and KNOW THIS, why would you even stress about it???

Because sometimes I do use alot. Like I said before, it's all about the freedom to use my phone the way I see fit without having to worry about (or even think about) going over a pre-set limit.

It amazes me that insiders are here constantly defending caps while consumers, you know the people who pay your paychecks, complain about caps. I firmly believe that data is much harder to keep track of than minutes and I don't want to count minutes or KB/MB/GB.

I much prefer the Sprint, Metro PCS, and other unlimited models. And if given the choice between the AT&T/Verizon caps and T-Mobile's throttling I would much prefer to get my speed cut if I'm a little heavy on the usage than to have to worry about overages.
