I've never gone over the 250GB limit, but that's because I've resisted not to. 300GB sounds more reasonable.

This is crap.

hit 350GB sometimes, are you telling me, like idiot phone users, I'm going to have to pay more for something they can create infinitely and doesn't put any additional load on them?
