    Default Re: Can we get straight answer, finally, on Straight Talk????

    I'm using the AT&T sim card. I have an AT&T iPhone 4 and 5. I did hear about the data cap but I also read the terms and conditions of using data. I also contacted ST through the website customer service and they responded with as long as I stay within the terms and conditions that I agreed too. After that I just started downloading music, videos, and apps everyday without a problem.

    I have Str8 Talk and have had them throttle me and call me questions about what apps I have to use WIFI for like YouTube, Facebook, etc. But they say in the terms and conditions data is allowed to native apps on the device. Well I know YouTube is native to all android phones but they harass users if you hit 100mb a day and no answer about a 2gb cap. They also have a rule that if you are disrespectful to a rep they can choose to terminate your service and no refund. T Mobile prepay plan is where I am headed for Xmas Walmart can blow it....

    They must have throttled me. I was getting 6 to 7 Mbps download, and I was testing the limits of their data. I have been tethering a little bit and watching movies on Netflix. I ran up over 3gb so far this month. Now tonight I cannot get past .25mbps download.

    No phone call though...

    Read a lot on this subject, and haven't found any rhyme or reason to what kind of usage level prompts getting booted.

    Into my 2nd month with ST on T-mo, unlocked GSM Gnex, did 9.5 GB in previous cycle. Streaming, tethering. Didn't set up voicemail, so I've no idea if any warning attempts were made, but I certainly haven't been cut or throttled, yet.

    Have a proper T-mo sim ready to go if they cut me loose.

    Default Can we get straight answer, finally, on Straight Talk????

    The biggest no no for me was them lying to me and telling me that they had no idea why my data speeds had slowed down. Then telling me as soon as I refilled my account for the next month, my speeds would go back to normal.

    Well, if they have no idea why my speeds are slow, then how can they know the speeds will go up for the new billing cycle?? LOL

    Liars!

    Why the heck are they so cheap and stingy? They would probably get many more customers including myself if their data usage policy wasn't so ridiculous. They're just crazy, and why would some random rep all the way in India care about how much data you used?
