It's not really your fault, you were led to believe that you would always have unlimited data from the carrier but then they cut you off. I've never had a data plan and never will for those prices, I use WiFi almost exclusively because that's all I had. Now I get 30mb of data with my T-mobile monthly prepay plan and 1500 minutes/text for $30/month and still have never come close to using all the data because I did not have to ween myself off of unlimited data that was truly never needed to begin with. Then the carriers have the nerve to charge for going over your allotted data which should be illegal, cut my data off when I use it all, don't charge for going over. Charge more reasonable prices for data now that it's not unlimited, charging the same as before should be illegal too. Companies that have good prepay plans should seriously consider selling data that doesn't expire every month. Sell me 5Gb of data and let me use it until it's gone, whether it takes 30 days or 180 days, it's not costing you anything to sell data that way and I get to use what I paid for. Carriers should have way more choices when it comes to minutes and data. Last but not least, Data should be an option not a requirement, this practice should definitely be illegal. Cheers.
