Re: I don't use 2gb.
said by LightS:A) I'm not sure why you have an attitude. I wasn't being derogatory towards you. Seriously I can't fathom how you would have took offense to my post.
I love how you seem to know the reasons I do stuff. Are you a mind reader? You must be, because you know that once I go over my 2gb cap that I'll start to shudder and cry because of overages!
Oh, wait - That's right. I'm still grandfathered in with my unlimited data than Verizon - and, on the rare occurance (2-3 mo's a year) that I do go over it, they haven't throttled me, or billed me a dime.
I use WiFi for a multitude of reasons: The main one being, well, it's available. The second one being, it's faster.
Oh, and for your scrutiny, here you go!
Notice on the WiFi how that gigabit is downloaded to Spotify? Done on WiFi, because it's 200x faster than the 3G connection in my new location.
B) Even by you're own stats you use nearly 4 GB a month between wi-fi and mobile. That's DOUBLE 2 GB last time I checked. If not for wi-fi and if you were on a 2 GB plan you would have paid $20 in overages. And not everyone has wi-fi since many people live in areas where mobile is the only internet they can get.
And if you use under 2 GB on mobile why hold on so tightly to unlimited? if you were on a 2 GB plan you wouldn't go over. I read so many complaints from people on unlimited about Verizon's forcing them to pay full price for phone to keep unlimited then it turns out they don't even use 2 GB a month like you.
Of course not everyone uses more than 2 GB but the act is form the study the amount of data use has DOUBLE in 1 year. At that rate within 2 1/2 years the AVERAGE amount of data used will be 2 GB and that's with people using wi-fi.
Now I understand why these companies can't offer unlimited. But the fact remains their caps, pricing and overage are ridiculous. And honestly what's the point about bragging about great brand new 4G service if people can barely use it and have to rely on wi-fi for most of their data? It's pointless. Spending billions to upgrade network to 4G and the average customer can only use it on average for 45 seconds a day. And that's not hyperbole that's factual.
Because I don't like you assuming why I do things. Putting words into my mouth, or giving me your reasoning for my actions..
I do use a decent bit - 4gb - and I'm sure i might be able to do that with my 3G if I so desired (No 4g here yet.) However, the reason I hold on so tightly to unlimited is so I don't have to worry about my data, man! I don't like having to set a "budget" on the bandwidth that I consume.
As far as he complaints go; I'm not sure.. I never do my purchasing from a corporate store, so I don't know if that's corporate or the resellers doing that. I've never had any push to get me off of unlimited through a store - which is kind of surprising, to be honest.
As far as it goes - I understand most people don't have WiFi available... however, I do, and I still like my unlimited. If I didn't have WiFi available, I would cling to it until the life leaves my hands, haha.
Also, I agree with your last statement in full; 4G is awesome, but if you can blaze through it (my usage was including 4G when I lived in an area that had it, however, the area im in now doesn't have it).
