    So all I am allowed to do is surf the net, check emails? And thats it?

    So I guess I better just use Wifi when at home. As I already racked up 100 megabytes in two days over 3g.

    So no autmatic data feeds:

    So no friendstream?

    No multmedia streaming:

    Oh so no youtube?

    (7) for any other application which uses excessive network capacity or may otherwise adversely impact other users, where such application is not made available to you by mycarrier; and (8) in any manner that consumes excess network capacity or affects, degrades or interferes with mycarrier's ability to provide services including the Service, to others, as determined by mycarrier.


    Oh I see so no use for an iPhone at all, to sum it all up no app downloads, no apps that use any decent amount of data, no facebook/twitter apps ect.

    Sounds like an AT&T contract of the future. They already have pro-rated pricing, which Verizon (NOOOOO!) is switching to. Why can't they be like Sprint, with 5 GB and then slow-er speeds after that?
