Ok, I can definitely appreciate the generally bad sentiment regarding being throttled. Now, according to VZW's policy, they are only throttling people who are using too much data and bogging the towers down during peak times. There was never a "limit" attached to how much data you had to use to be throttled. While it is quite easy to see how much data you have used, that 3GB number is quite arbitrary and I strongly doubt you were given correct information.
Truthfully, I have seen older accounts who were throttled at 5 gigs for mobile broadband, but I have never seen one of these newer smartphone accounts that is being throttled. I can try and look up the information tomorrow, but again, I'd like to believe I still have my faculties together and I do not recall seeing a data threshold. It was all about network congestion at certain times though I will look again.
OP, PM me so we can talk.
