    Am going to be totally out of them in June 2013. Was able to purchase a black 64 GB ATT iP5 on full price via Apple reservation because of their systems hiccups.

    I have a flawless manufactured on week 43 iP5. It is working perfectly so far. Oh well it's under an unlimited + throttling plan with AT&T.

    I can't wait to have my freedom back. Last week of June 2013 is my independence day! When was / will be yours?

    Freed myself from Austrian carriers about half a year ago. Bought ip5 unlocked (full price) from Apple (still waiting for shipping) and got an plan (1000 min, 1000 texts, unlimited throttled data) for 10€. Couldn't be happier

    "Unlimited throttled data" for 10 euros :eek:, I'll take it.

    Your "freedom"? So who "took" your freedom and just how did they do it?

    Yeah it's really nice. Only 2 GB are full speed (most of Austria is 3G - only one city with LTE)
    There is even 1 contract for 7.50€, but that got only 1GB full speed data

    3G is not too shabby if am not playing youtube or videos and am happy with what am seeing on fake 4G for over a month now. LTE is an overkill. I do not want it if my bills will increase tremendously as well. I am going to be happy with the pricing of up to 4G on T-Mobile or straighttalk. I know not to that cheap level you pay there but big difference on long-term per my data needs and use.

    Once T-Mobile completes their refarm it's only $69.99 for unlimited everything included non-throttled unlimited HSPA+ 42 data. No reason not to go that route unless T-Mobile doesn't have coverage in your area.
