    Well, I have been pretty happy lately, using my phone to tether and whatnot... but then I got worried about data roaming and all that jazz. So I checked the data section of the sprint site for "my account", and it said Usage: XXX kb / unlimited for both Sprint Data and Sprint Roam Data.

    I was pretty happy with this, but today I decided to actually check up with the customer chat people, turns out it is not unlimited, but 300mb.

    Oops, I've used 400mb in 7 days >.< (Just thought it'd be nice to share this kernel of knowledge with other users out there...)

    Looks like it's back to dial up for me :'(

    ---------
    Also, was anyone else kinda disappointed with the new 2.3 update? I guess I forgot about all the sprint garbage they throw in... Back to CM7 for now.

    ya know i wonder what happend to evomatt's attempt to see if sprint will kick him off because of excessive data roaming. i think that if you keep it moderate you should be ok.

    I was wondering that too about evomattnc....

    Yeah, I guess I'll have to slow down with it. It sucks cause I get no data whatsoever without roaming...

    Seems like a bit of trickery to have it say "Unlimited" on the site, but not be really unlimited.


    Hey, when did you become guide? I've been MIA for a week or so... First the 2.3 update and now you're a guide!?! Congrats

    The limit is in place on contracts after a certain date and all data cards. Contracts prior to that have no limit....but Sprint can choose to term a contract over it

    ^ Yeah, I remember reading about contracts before and after august... Mine was done in September (got the evo) but I've been with sprint for ages. And my details on the sprint site say "unlimited" so, I'm a bit confused.

    At least I watched the Skyrim demo yesterday - before I was worried about roaming.

    Most likely an ill informed rep

    Ahh, I hope you're right. :D

    Dial up! In 2011!!! I'll still probably have to ease up on the roaming though, probably no more elder scrolls vids.

    It did seem a bit weird that the site said one thing, and they played it like some error... but it's been that way for a month or so...

    (fingers crossed: hoping for no extra charges)
