Only way they can get rid of your grandfathered plans is if you buy a new phone. you can keep renewing your contract with them and they cant do crap.

That's odd AT&T, I don't remember asking for a data cap. Was I drunk or something? Who the HELL are they kidding?! NO ONE wants a f****** data cap.

The main reasons for companies doing this is GREED, more money in there pocket and less service for us. I mean if you sign up for unlimited internet and now it's not. Think of it this way just like Big oil they say it cost more to produce and bring in but They will profit billions.

Anyone notice how AT&T sponsors just about EVERYTHING on television? It's ridiculous as they should spend that damn advertising money on new fiber infrastructure. God I hate AT&T so much.

AT&T can get rid of grandfathered plans if they choose to. When your contract lapses after the 1 or 2 year agreement, you then have no on-going contract and they can ask you to sign a new contract if they wish. It just so happened that historically they allowed people to keep their older plans.

Grounds for a class-action lawsuit?
can't.

the terms of service that came with the cap includes an "you agree to abide by AT&T arbitration and cannot institute a class action lawsuit" clause. supreme court said things to the same effect recently. check engadget

Hmmm, the atrix for ATT just got an update last week that enabled not only enabled HSUPA, which was responsible for having extremely poor uploading speeds, and hopefully they realise they actually have to please their customers. I can take my money else where If i please.

Hey did you file a complaint with the FCC like we talked about awhile back? Updates? I'm still waiting on them to "investigate" my case.


I'm nerd raging so hard right now. "Our users wanted data caps." The situation as literally gone full retard now. Jeet Christ. I just emailed Randall Stephenson on every public email of his I could find. I'll send a letter to his house. I'll call this secretary. I'll send 100 pizzas to his wife. I'll kick in the next AT&T switching box I see. I don't care. I'm pissed.
