    This has seriously been bothering me lately: while on a road trip, my son wants to download an app over 100mb, but the iPhone(5) refuses to allow without WiFi connection. So I have to pull off at the nearest Mcdonald's to use their free WiFi, because my only portable hotspot is inside - yes! - the iPhone.

    Perhaps I'm missing something in the big picture here, but who the F is Apple to dictate to anyone how much (in my case) Sprint data I use? It's like they have teamed up with the big ISPs to force people to have land-based internet service.

    Can someone please help me understand this ... and if there is any hack or workaround to bypass 100mb download limit?

    And/or various wireless carriers have also had a hand in this to avoid loading up their wireless networks with potentially more and more people downloading larger and larger apps (games in particular). That's not to say it's a good thing or anything like that, but it might not really be all Apple there.
