[ZDNet] BUSTED! AT&T begins crackdown on iPhone jailbreakers using MyWi tethering - Page 5

post #41 of 100
So they want you to pay for the unlimited data plan, but don't want you to use it? That's breach of contract, they should be sued in a class action. They are just lazy and don't want to upgrade their networks. They want people to pay for unlimited data, but get upset when people actually use data because their networks can't handle the bandwidth.

And why do data plans cost as much as a land line internet connection that is way faster and doesn't drop out. Unlimited data plans should be $10 a month. i don't know why data plans cost so much even though the speeds are slow as hell. In fact if the phone requires a data plan, the cost should be included in the monthly access fee, they should not be passing on the cost to the customer.

I hate ATT so much. I have caught them overcharging me several times in the past year .They did refund my money , but only after haggling with them . These are very tough times for consumers.This can not last much longer before it all implodes. I can't imagine what my Kids will be up against.

Unfortunately the general attitude in this country is "i'm getting ripped off? Oh well I have to pay anyway so f' it". Until people stand up and say NO to these companies, instead of just being ok with getting screwed, companies will continue to screw people over.

It's sad when a 25 dollar 300 min, unlimited text/data prepaid plan from virgin mobile is not only less strict than AT&T about data usage but you literally are paying nearly twice as much for the data alone. Why are people still using AT&T now that verizon has the iphone? With all the crap AT&T has been pulling recently I'm amazed their stock hasn't plummeted from people dropping their plans.

This is just crazy!
1st they put bandwith caps on our dsl
2nd they crack down on people using their "unlimited" plan.
I'm switching to Verizon.

I agree with the overcharging

For unlimited, okay, something could be in place, but even still, the user is paying for that bandwidth, unlimited or not, that is what AT&T gave them for a price, and the end user should be allowed to use it in any way they see fit, as long as it is for "legitimate" use of course.
In Canada everyone has a blackberry silly and one of the apps I have for mine make my tethering data look like regular data, and I've never had any problems. I assume that's what the issue is here with AT & T

Verizon had put some kind of tether monitoring in the leaked Froyo kernel for the Samsung Fascinate. Telcomm companies already make huge profits but yet they still want to screw consumers over. We're definitely going backwards in the telcomm industry with bandwidth limits and tiered plans.

Unlimited data plan for your phone, not a computer. That's not a breach of contract or any type of lawsuit. You're completely incorrect.

Don't get me wrong, I disagree with AT&T and Verizon all together on this whole tethering separate charges thing. I've always felt it to be ridiculous especially when they overcharge the hell out of it.. But, they have every right to do it.

You paid for your phone, not a separate device or computer. Your phone has the right of passage onto their network, and to use their data plans. You don't own their networks just because you subscribe to them.
Using a computer or separate device is unauthorized access to their networks. No one can argue this in anyway shape or form. It's in the contracts and their ToS guaranteed. I'm no lawyer but I'm fairly certain a breach of something like that without them knowing about it for a significant amount of time and usage, it's you who can get sued. Not them.

Verizon is the same exact situation dude, if not worse. Their support sucks in every aspect for any situation, especially billing.
