    With StraightTalk it's about 2 gigs of data before they supposedly shut you off.

    If it's not LTE, its not 4G. AT&T are confusing the hell out of their customers with this 4G ****, and unfortunately, Apple is playing along. I do like the $45 unlimited everything part, but the Internet speed isn't there.

    Read this post from this macrumors poster. Straight talk closed his/her account after using 6GB of data on iPad last year.

    So fly under the radar or they can close ur account for excessive usage.

    U beat me to the punch. I saw 6gb last year as the cutoff.

    4G keeps getting redefined. We techies know real 4g starts at over 100mpbs and requires voice and data at the same time. So even LTE isn't considered real 4g.

    Saying that the ITU reSponsible for defining 4G redefined it a year or so ago and technically HSPA plus is considered "4G"

    IIRC, T-Mobile was the first in the US to market HSPA+ as 4G.

    The funny part is people on eBay, Craigslist etc are going nuts selling straight talk as unlimited 4g but the thing is they don't tell you who services the sim they send you. I did some recent research and 2gigs a month or 100 or so Meg's in a day made them terminate you. This is not personal experience just what people found and posted.
