    That's why people were saying it's unenforcable. But they did indeed state that if they catch anyone using it, even over wifi(they own hotspots so maybe that's it), they will cancel the account.

    I think the wifi part is stupid and I hope they either clarify or revise that.

    I don't like the 3G bans from AT&T or T-Mobile either, but AT&T has a point that their network is overloaded. However that is their fault.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    That was on point....

    Yea, we should be able to do what we want... someone got pwned.

    At any rate, toby has the main point... Tool kit wants to "moderate" this forum, but not allow the companies to "moderate" their networks.

    Just because the iPhone is on ATT and the pre on sprint, is that "forcing" someone to use those networks? No... they are using the networks by choice.

    That was good... funny...

    Does anyone know how using Skype on wifi is grounds for an account ban or contract violation since you aren't using their bandwidth and could even be using your own home network bandwidth?

    I'm still waiting for the answer to that question because still I'm baffled by T-Mobile Germany's response. The only thing I can figure they don't want their Hotspots being used either, but what about other wifi?

    Do they not allow connections through wifi?

    If not, you have a valid point... if I go to ebay and buy a phone... is it "my" phone? Is it "their" phone once I connect to their network? Can they regulate that (if they are)?

    I'm not sure they don't allow skype connections via wifi... I'd think they would kill the program once it hits their network, but I might be wrong.

    I truly don't know the answer to your question and don't have sufficient time to look up the real answer... unfortunately.

    They do allow wifi itself, but claim Skype can't be used and if they catch you, termination of contract.

    I still don't know: 1. How they'd know, unless maybe if it's through one of their Hotspots. But even then, Hotspots are often paid wifi the last time I checked, so they can still get their money.

    And 2. How using your own or a 3rd party's bandwidth violates the contract since there's no strain on the network. Plus the customer will still owe T-Mobile for their monthly service. If T-Mobile thinks people are going to either drop or lower their plans, I don't think anyone would or should rely on wifi alone to make calls, you still need a reliable cell network.

    I think this may also have something to do with T-Mobile not being able to collect on international calls. But that leads me back to question 1, and also to question 2 because what's the big deal if you're not even using their network to make international calls.

    I also don't know if they enforced the Skype ban by truly terminating people's contracts. This also seemed to apply only to iPhone users who downloaded the Skype app.

    BTW, the reason for all this concern on my end is the US carriers may try something similar next. You never know. AT&T already tried to slip some crap through.
