Re: Exactly Why Capped Plans Suck How do you figure ?"Overage charging is designed to curb conscious use and change habits, not raise revenue."
What a load of bovine excrement! The carriers want to/will charge you as much as they can for as little data as they have to handle. Their overage charges are a way to add bottom line revenue without any capital investment. Caps and cap overage charges are not there to curb conscious use and change habits because the carriers want their customers to have a warm fuzzy feeling they're there to generate MORE revenue plain and simple. IF every user suddenly minimized their usage, the carriers would still bitch about the amount of data being too high! Why have a "smart phone" if you are PENALIZED for using its features, features that somehow consumes data when not even being used. AT&T should be all over the great "APPLE" if there is indeed a bug as reported by users especially after Verizon had the same issue!
