Lets see, 5GB free storage, 2GB data cap ?

WIN FOR AT&T, FAIL FOR THE CONSUMER....

This may help the average joe (consumer) notice just how there being blindsided by ATT's data caps and overages.

Unless ATT allows you unlimited usage and streaming from there cloud and it not count against your data package... LOL let me stop dreaming.

Note I said Unless, However at the end of the press release read the fine print...

(AT&T Locker

"""" Download and usage from wireless device may consume data.""""

Now Theres no mention that this will NOT count against your data it only mention that it MAY consume data. In those worded terms on there wireless network and not over wifi I speculate it will count.

First off, its like Dropbox. I would speculate you are correct, but AT&T has been known to not count data that is used on AT&T services against the cap. I guess we will see how it all pans out.

For 5gb of free storage, this could be a good alternative to Dropbox or Sugarsync or Google Drive.

What exactly do they mean by "may consume data"?

Is there ever a time that you pass packets back and forth that it does not consume data?

Why do they not simply say Download and usage from wireless device WILL consume data?

Stating "MAY" is 100% false, stating "WILL" is 100% true.

If I connect from my phone via WiFi or from my computer, how much data will I consume...?
