Rob Clarke wrote: On a 4S? I asked in the AT&T store local to me and the guy there said he wasn't sure if it would lead to problems. When I asked him what possible problems there could be he mentioned things like calls dropping out, spotty service etc. Anyone on the 550 plan noticed this or was he talking nonsense? Sounds like a salesman trying to upsell you. It isn't lik...

One of the reasons that AT&T gave for moving to the tiered plans was to provide a cheaper alternative to the existing unlimited plans that all iPhone users had to have. Making the 2GB plan cost the same as the existing unlimited plan would give people very little reason to move to it. And, presumably for PR ...

With the 2GB costing the same as the unlimited plan I'm guessing a lot fewer people would've switched. True...in that case--if AT&T really only cared about the bottom line when it comes to data plans, then what they should have done was g...

tonester wrote: The issue is that it would seem that "excessive" apparently can be viewed subjectively; I mean, it could be theoretically possible that, depending on how the usage numbers come out for a particular period, even usage as low as 3 GB in a month could be considered "excessive". Put it this way--should an unlimited user be throttled at all if his usage rate is...

And although we don't know definitively how AT&T calculates their "top 5%" or when they flip the switch on throttling, it's highly likely that this isn't the user's first rodeo of high data consumption. I find it very difficult to believe that AT&T just started rand...
