Re: Sprint, VZ, and AT&T ...
said by Jim_in_VA:It makes me wonder too why they push unlimited on their smart phones, and leave a rather small cap on the card options. Its almost as if sprint is telling you to tether your phone to avoid those pesky data caps, saving you money and cutting out a potential data card sale to sprint.
were all huddled in a smokey cigar filled room, and threw a dart at the board and hit the 5GB mark. Thus all aircards were limited to that standard. Sadly, Sprint could have gone out for a breather and said " think I'll give 10GB instead" ... and how much so would their ranks have grown.
You people understand if you are using data card or tether, you'd use 10x more data than a normal smartphone?
Cmon really. Stop pretending air cards should be unlimited (yet). It will be eventually but right now, it's not viable option to carrier due to 3G (WIDELY supported unlike 4G) tech. I completely understand $30/mo data plan for smartphone should not be the same as air cards.
