Honestly, that seems almost like a feature and not a problem.
Maybe. It would have been nice if they disclosed this somewhere. And it's a problem when you:
- Don't know they will do this ahead of time;
- Run your own server (suddenly seeing traffic redirected through a strange IP made me think there was a security issue;
- Do graphic design for a living and need to see the actual quality of an image.
And further, I'm not on an unlimited plan. I pay $35 for 3.5GB. If I don't want images compressed, I shouldn't be required to have them.
Yet another in the long list of reasons to never do business with T-Mobile again.
