To AT&T, unlimited means 5GB per month. Just don't go over that.
Wrong. AT&T unlimited is truely unlimited. Last month on one of my lines, I was at 12.5GB. This month on another one of my lines, I'm at 6.30GB. I average about 12 GB per month on two of my three lines and have for the past year. There is and never has been a 5GB limit on unlimited data plans.

No, I download TV shows. Sure I could use WiFi or download them on my computer but that takes away the fun of doing it on my phone.

I download during the early morning hours when my speeds are at their fastest, usually about 3Mbps. Took less than an hour for six 22 minute shows a few nights ago.

I average around 1.5-2g per month, and that's probably from me streaming live radio and C-SPAN in the morning and afternoon commute.

So you could use wifi on your phone with one button press, but instead you make an entire thread asking about at&t red flags? Why not just use wifi?

Tethering multiple devices simultaneously, flash, and movies is the answer my friend
