I sit and watch an att commercial it says 97% of america is covered by them period not 3g not 2g(E) of anything. I get a text and they are going to limit my data as of feb 9 because of data roaming. funny thing about that is my iphone says AT&T E on it at the top (at that time) now of course it says off network and so does my wife however my workers says AT&T E. we are on same plan same place. i pay for unlimited data plan $30 been that way for year or 2 now. I pay 25x2 for their 2g plan for my wife and someone who works for me, unlimited phone and text for 5 phones total.
AT&T says that we are in an area that is not AT&T servicable but they sold me the phone and plan.
now also bear in mind that I live about 20 minutes from a 3g area and also while I was away in another state had 3g the whole time and used my iphone for what it was made for. then upon returning home I have this text msg.
so I called and they said that I had exceeded the datat roaming limit of 100mb i said how is that possible when i havent even been here they said sir thats what our records are showing. The next day I call from a 3g area and they have no understanding of why I would recieve that msg. i ask her on the hone how much data have i used in the current 3g area that I am in she replies" I have no way of knowing that sir" i said well, how much have I used in roaming today I know Ihad used some (Pandora) in their alleged non servicable/att edge service area. She says none that I sir I said is there a delay in that information she said not that she know of. I then go on about my business and 3 days later called from a 3g area again and same thing and says I have used no roaming "this billing cycle" I said funny. I told the guy that I am heading into an area that i might get cut off because of service area he took my number and said he would call me back if we were disconnected. Well i continued conversing with him and then it failed he called back a few minutes later and apologized to me (haha) so I was now in my service area with what used to be AT&T E but now says off network and ask the same questions. wallah he says I am over my roaming network usage and even he found it to be intriguing that I am now 3 gigs over and about 15 minutes prior there was no roaming at all. I live in the south and not near an INT. border so not even near a state border and matter of a fact inside their little orange line Albeit its on the border of the orange but there nonetheless (97% my ass)if you include other carriers that they bounce off of maybe also how do I monitor data roaming under those conditions as well as they cant even monitor it correctly?
