shepard smith from foxnews and and editor from mashable were talking about how ATT&T gets you in with an unlimited data plan and then throttles you and the editor from mashable said phones were'n like that when they offered you unlimited he said now you have 8MP cameras in phones which make data high, and shepared said I guess we can't do nothing about it and the editor said nope.

2 GB usage puts you in the top 5% users!?!? That's not even the bottom (% users in Sweden.. More like bottom 2%..

I very well understand why he did that and also I am having the same problem with AT&T with my unlimited plan.

They took away my unlimited plan and automatically switched me to the tiered 3 gb data plan. Can I sue?

Take them to small claims court itll only cost 15 bucks to see how far you'll get

Will I need to hire an attorney to get anywhere with it? Because I'll do it if I know I won't be wasting my time.

My experience tells me that any court case needs to be viewed as a probable waste of time and money. When you win though the high is a good one.

Thats why i left !! After 6 Years And You Screw Me Than F*** Ya !

The only reason I haven't left is that Verizon no longer offers unlimited data plans and I don't like T-Mobile or Sprint.

This is the cue for all the douchebag attorney's out there, come get your money for the big class action lawsuit in which the people actually affected by it only receive pennies on the dollar and you take the majority of the settlement.

I fear you are right. Hopefully this is really just a cue for companies who have unlimited plans that they have to make good on the word unlimited. It's clear that a throttled data plan is usless and thusly the unlimited is truly limited and therefore a lie to call it unlimited. Bad business. Even worse though is that you cannot get a straight answer. Top 5% is bullshit. ATT store rep told me after 2gigs you get throttled. Two days ago a telephone support rep told me I will get throttled after 5gigs. The truth is there is no truth and we all are subject to the whims of big bullys, er ah... big businesses.

They should not be holding the unlimited users to a standard that is different from the tiered data users as far as throttling goes, but sadly that's what it sounds like they're doing. That's just bad business. They're just trying as hard as possible to get people off the unlimited plans and onto the tiered plans so they can make more money.
