  1. AT&T Wireless is about to make some slight modifications to its data plans which may benefit some customers, but hurt others. The good news? Starting January 22, AT&T will be…

    What the hell are you talking about it? I LOVE AT&T! It's so great, when I think about it, I start to salivate and get really hot.

    On the other hand, I am of course sticking with my 200MB plan since I use wifi most of the time. The mobile date is used for some occasional surfing and mostly for email notifications. Besides the mobile date sucks anyways. I have the Inspire 4G and if you know about how they advertised 4G and such, you would think it would be fast and reliable. However it totally sucks and the quite unreliable. Well it did not matter much anyways since I got the phone because it was cheap and had good specs.

    Greedy mother $&#*ers... It's just about getting more money and they know it. I reluctantly got a 2GB/month data plan with Verizon a few months ago because I am on the go so much and need mobile internet access. However I only need 50-100 MB a month, and $30 a month for that small amount of usage is ridiculous. I wrote Verizon some nastygrams seeing if I could make a futile attempt at getting them to introduce a $10 a month plan with like 200 MB or something, but of course I got the typical corporate BS response. These asshats don't care about budget-conscious people, they just care about getting more of our money.

    ditto....

    :)

    I am glad when i signed my contract "I did Not Sign My Name", I signed it " Bugs Bunny", So at any time, I can drop them like a "Rock".

    Its nice having a friend that works as a costumer support here in town, that tells you all the little secrets the phone companies KEEP from all the CUSTOMERS....

    This is hirrible and I knew it was coming.

    250 should be no more than 10 bucks if not 5... you see they are trying to make up for slipping margins... texting will be hit with people using their dataplans instead... so we will have facebook messenger, iPhone messenger etc... and their text revenue will start to fall.

    This is seriouly messed up crap. They need to give us some real imporvements in service... create some interesting plans etc. People are trapped. I just got out of my unlimited data plan to save 5 bucks and that only cost me 30 bucks... now the 2G is gone and they want to push it back to 30... bastards! Wow they really suck.
  8. Most people use more than 200GB and less that 1GB and they know that so they price the plans accordingly to get the most money. $10 Per Gigabyte is reasonable.....but do you think we will see that...not for a long time. They like to tell you it's for your benefit and to stop people using to much...but they know less than 1% of all users will use more than 2GB so it's all BS to get more money from the little people.

    i already doen't use the full 200 MB plan....and now they want to charge me more for more **** i wont use?!
  10. Data Plus 300 MB: $20 for 300 MB, you have got to be kidding. One Windows 7 update would eat that up in 10 seconds. I get 1 GIG for $9:90 a month, or $19:90 for 2.5 GIG. Telstra, Optus and most others will ROB you, all are greedy and hungry for your money. My advice is DUMP the greedy and find one that is not so greedy. Show them the road to bankruptcy by walking away from the thieves. I think they know you are stupid enough to give them your hard earned money.

    It cost's the phone companies less than a penny to send data packets across the networks, they have balloned the costs for MEGA profits..
     
  12. Wait I'm confused where can I find links to those new 30GB plans and the old 20GB plans they only seem to be mentioned once in the article...
  13. We are stuck in contracts with these greedy ba$#ard$. Cannot do anything until our 2 years are up...

    To bad that will never actually work. Just by being in possession of the device in your contract, you agree to the contract.
