straight talk data/web usage
i was thinking of leaving Boost and changing to Straight Talk but i have been reading on another forum that ST has been cutting people off when they reach a certain amount of data usage on the unlimited plan. if the plan is unlimited them why are people getting cut off? also i went and read ST's Terms and Conditions and i am confused on something there as well.
STRAIGHT TALK UNLIMITED TALK, TEXT AND MOBILE WEB ACCESS PLAN INTENDED USE: Straight Talk Unlimited Talk, Text and Mobile Web Access Plans may ONLY be used with a Straight Talk handset for the following purposes: (i) Person to Person Voice Calls (ii) Text and Picture Messaging (iii) Internet browsing through the Straight Talk Mobile Web Service and (iv) Authorized Content Downloads from the Straight Talk Mobile Web Store.

so what i get out of this is i can not make unlimited calls or send/recieve unlimted text or even use the internet barely. so why is this plan called unlimited? can someone please explain before i make a mistake. Boost as never limited my internet usage calls or text. the service is just bad and i keep getting ecommernce charges for some reason
