The carriers or the manufacturers? All of the smartphones have issues with mysterious bandwidth usage. Sit the phone down overnight, more data chugs back and forth than would strictly be necessary for maintaining contact with the cell towers. You pay for all of it. It's an acceptable loss and only of concern with regards to battery life when dealing with an unlimited plan but what do people do when they're capped? I'm not sure how the debate's been going so far. The thing that impressed me the most about the original iphone was uncapped data. The second thing that impressed me only after the nature of the business was explained to me was just how big an idea the app store was given that carriers loved having their own little captive markets for their crappy JVM phones. Mobile apps did not become a serious and viable business until the advent of the app store. This was a bigger concession even than the uncapped data plan. So ATT is capped, no unlimited plans on offer. Verizon is rumored to be getting ready to drop theirs. Sprint is still bragging about uncapped for iphone but just truncated their plans for non-iphones. How does someone with a 200mb/month plan deal with all of the mysterious bandwidth usage? How are the carriers getting away with these limits?
