[ZDNet] BUSTED! AT&T begins crackdown on iPhone jailbreakers using MyWi tethering - Page 3

post #21 of 100
Wow, I am actually so happy being in Israel right now.

I called my carrier the other day asking them about my 33$ Unlimited Data plan..

I wanted to make sure, you know, that once I get to 100GB, they won't charge me 5$/MB.

So, I asked over and over again, and I got the same reply "Yes, sir, you can use 100TB and it's all covered.. you can also use it any way you like." That's from 4 different people (I had to make 100% sure).

So.. Fvck AT&T! I'm never going back to them again. I'll probably get one of those 30$ Verizon 3G WiFi devices and carry it around. Better reception than AT&T..

Why on earth would you guys share your Phone's Internet unless it's actually kind of fast. Or just to really save and no pay for Internet on your PC.
Where I live my phone is about 10X faster on average and the worst part is both my phone and home internet use the same tower :/

BLEH!
The customer service isn't always bad, guarantee you if you got me on the phone I would get all of the issues fixed right away, there is a reason I'm a manager now.

Other than that yes I agree ATT service is ridiculous and overpriced, bandwidth caps and all.

Depending on where i am located in my town i can stream NFL games over my phone or watch crysis 2 trailers all in HD, which usually takes 2-3mb/s download speeds.

That is with verizon though on a droid2

They are going to get rid of their unlimited plan, so I suggest not changing your plan once they do.

They are getting rid of unlimited data, if you change your plan or get a new phone once they get rid of it then you lose the unlimited part of your plan, everyone who has it will be grandfathered in but once you make any changes to your plan or service you lose it.
