    I got a letter from AT&T yesterday stating that they've noticed that I use more than 2gb of data per month which puts me outside of 98% of their customers typical data use. The letter gave me a friendly reminder that AT&T has many free wifi hotspots, and, if I wasn't aware of this, that I should turn on wifi in my iphone settings and that the iphone would automatically connect to those free wifi hotspots. I guess that streaming internet radio and podcasts all day puts me into the 2% category. I feel special.

    I'm glad that I'm grandfathered into the unlimited data plan. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that they've reserved the ability to move me to a 2gb plan at their discretion.

    We(at&t) wont move your plan unless you become a burden on the network. Using 3-4 GB's a month should not trigger such action. I use WAYYY more than that every month.

    I find it funny that they would say you were outside of their typical customer data usage group...because i could almost guarantee that most people with the 2GB data plan and the tethering use more than their alloted amount each month...they know good and well that they make so much on the "additional 1GB of service" fees that it makes the tethering almost free for them to provide...

    Basically like a friendly warning that they are monitoring your usage for whatever reason...dicks.

    Since May, my usage has varied between 2.1gb and 3.6gb, and it's usually under 3gb.

    About three months ago my home internet went out and I used my phone to tethered with mywi. I hit 23gb but a lot of that was netflix. They also sent me a letter reminding me to switch to wifi. And tell me about their wifi hotspots. I guess for that one month I am on their watch list. But the only thing is they act like I did this all the time. Normally I do about 2g to 3gb a month and that is mainly netflix not tethering I only did it that one month.

    Someone using 23 gigs a month should be banned.

    why? Just because YOU are a light data user does not mean everyone must follow your lead.

    No I'm not but you are rather rude in your responses to people. In case you haven't noticed you **** a lot of people off here. If you have something constructive to add then by all means do but you really need to evaluate how you come across and that is usually like a jackass!

    I know, but all I'm doing is having a conversation. If you were not offended, you wouldnt have responded. Plus I was talking to "Ghostface"

    Just tell ATT that if they don't like the money you give them every month... there's always someone else willing to take it.

    I live by the motto of money talks and bull**** walks.

    Just using what my plan calls for. I paid for it if I don't use it then I am wasting my money.
    Now if I jail broke and used mywi or tether then that's a different story.

    AT&T as a wireless provider is going to hurt once they lose the iPhone, and personally, I can't wait.
