    Since there is more data unlimited iPhone plans, and it's obvious iads uses data.

    iAds should be cached on the iphone and added / updated from iTunes. alot iADS 100mb worth of space and apple just solved the problem.

    BTW It's not apples fault your using the free version, they are not forcing you to use the app. If you have a issue with it buy the paid for-ad-free version that is available for 90% of the apps. If one is not submit a request to the developer.

    Just don't click on the iAd banners. They only load the ad data when you click on them.

    There won't be any more ads than there were before. iAds will simply replace ads that are already there...ads that were already using your data.

    Too easy. It's like that person who clicked Buy on the "I Am Rich" app a few years ago and was charged $999.99. It's just so tempting....

    Honestly, I don't see how iAds wasting data quota is any different from any other ad service you find in apps or the Internet wasting data quota.

    Safari uses data and we don't even have the option to remove it. Why would a lawsuit even be considered for something we choose to download and install?

    This.


    Plus, no one is forcing you to use the apps that have iAds included. If you don't want them unnecessarily using data, don't use them. Done.

    While you're at it, are you going to sue people who send you e-mails that might put you over your quota?

    This doesn't stop it from showing you ads, just personalized ads.

    Comes a point where you realize that there is a large number of people who just shouldn't buy an iPhone.

    Your issue is not with apple and their iAds, it is with AT&T's capped data plans. Apple isn't capping your or forcing you to use apps that have iAds or use data.

    If they are going to show me adds, I'd rather them be personalized. At least then I can look at something that somewhat interest me. I can make the choice to then go into the add or just ignore it.

    There are ads on websites you visit on your computer...do you wan to sue the "Internet?"


    Come on people get real... Apple didn't put ads on the iPhone, they were already there. All the are doing is making them look GOOD. They are not forcing people to use iADs to advertise on the iPhone, it will just provide the best experience for mobile advertising.

    Data or not, Ads suck.

    The only people who they benefit are the people who make money from them.
