    I guess it was just a matter of time

    [/FONT]I don't use that much data, so it doesn't bother me much anyway.

    Frankly, i'm not sure that it's faster than 256kbs in the first place. heh[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]

    Straight Talk from Wal Mart just told my brother in law that he uses too much data on his unlimited plan and if he keeps doin it, theyll shut his account down lol.

    He says he uses data for navigation and radio.

    Verizon's 3G is unlimited I believe(at least for me it is). I know there's not much areas covered by Sprint 4G so they're basically on par...or at least in my location. If Sprint's 4G LTE is unlimited, I might switch to them. They're basically the same price as VZW even after my 22% discount.

    Couple friends of mine are getting kicked off their Sprint plan because they use 16 gigs each per month, one of which is mostly roaming. Said they're costing the company thousands of dollars, and gave them 6 months to find a new provider.

    if you have an unlimited plan with VZW you can hold on to it indefinitely
    it covers you for 3g or 4g... so when you upgrade your phone just renew your plan to keep the unlimited and get the full VZW LTE 4g network

    sounds like a law suite waiting to happen.

    Lawyer: " Sprint, isn't it true that my client has an unlimited data plan/"
    Sprint: "yes"
    Lawyer: " isn't true that my client received notice that he is using to much data and was given 6 months to find another provider?"
    Sprint: "yes but he was using it to much, who do you think we are, Verizon?"
    Lawyer:" But it is unlimited, is it not?"
    Sprint: : "yes"

    Lawyer: :confused: "no further questions your Honor"

    Judge: "Sprint is guilty, award of $2.2mil to the plantiff"
