    Attn: Creaky...Boost mobile is giving you the shaft!

    Just read next month, Boost mobile will throttle unlimited users, that go over 2.5GB a month. I wonder how long before Sprint does this too. Sucks!!

    Then again, 2.5GB is fine for 90%of customers.

    I am sure it's a matter of time to, before AT&T kills off my grandfathered unlimited.

    Yeah saw that... no prob for me since I don't expect to go much over 1gb most months, based on my usage patterns. If I need to tether, I have a Virgin Mobile hotspot, also on a monthly prepaid plan that I can turn off and on.

    Anyway, my company has a new plan effective Jan 1 so I might be switching anyway.

    2.5GB of data even on 4G is a lot. You'd have to be watching a ton of movies or somehow torrenting things on your phone to hit that.

    I started streaming podcasts to my phone (which I plug into my car stereo) on my drive to from work every day. Only about 20-25 minutes each way.

    I somehow gobbled up over 3 gigs of data in a month, and got a nice overage charge of $30. Ooops.
