I'm n the top 5% of data usage .... I he the txt and email every month .... My bill has increased from $205. For me and my wife to $300-315 each month!!
It's redicilous!!
I was on the old unlimited plan!! And now I'm being charged more!!
My wife is on the new regulated plan. And she is barely ever in the Internet and hasn't set up email on her phone.
We both have iPhones so we can see the data "used"

It's never the same on the phone and on the bill or on the at&t website....

I called and asked for an explanation.... I was told" sir if u don't pay the bill service will b disconnected; if you don't like how AT&T bills you for your data usage..... Get a new cellular provider!!!

AT&T is a horrible company and I hope they go bankrupt someday!!!

I have looked at all and none are better than the other......You will pay to use internet at all of them

I know Sprint has an unlimited plan also, but I heard they throttle their usage back from 4G as well to help their server and curve usage by it customers. We have AT&T now bu thave been thinking of switching to Sprint.

I have never had problems either on 2 occasions I was down in Cameron for work and using my phone at the heliport. I saw it was connected to off network site but I didn't care and kept using it. When I got my bill both times I told them they were gonna take those charges off because I have a no roaming plan and I was within the continental US so it was their problme not mine to deal with...They hesitated but they took the charges off both times.

All carriers are a rip-off as far as data is concerned, but we don't have many options to fight them. I'm glad I'm on Verizon's unlimited even though I don't use much data.

Me and the wife bothe got Sprint Evo's, our unlimited plan is like $125 a month for both of us. I find sprints data to be rather slow even when sitting in a full service area. Ive never once been able to connect to 4G even though they are pumping a signal for it somewhat close to my house.

Verizon doesn't offer an unlimited plan anymore. Seems like I read somewhere they are starting to throttle like AT&T, but I might be mistaken.

Verizon got rid of unlimited in the summer. They do run promotions where you can get double the amount of data if you upgrade at that time.
