    As far as my contract there is no limit on my sprint unlimited data. Maybe on those new "everything" plans they put a 5 gig limit, but for mine they don't have that stipulation in my contract. I know verizon does that and I think that's crap. Unlimited is unlimited.
    The 5GB cap is on EVDO customers. Sprint is mirroring the way Verizon does it.

    Hmm, I thought the Wi-Fi was pretty much wasted, but seeing you guys example of places where there is NO service, it makes sense. For me, it is pretty rare I am somewhere with an open network, so mine never gets turned on.

    Unfortunately with mobile providers and ISP's the unlimited is almost always limited. They all reserve the right to cap it.

    It maybe hard to see how you would hit caps on a cell phone but if you use a phone as modem hack a lot it could happen.

    Also a lot of people buy on a two year lifetime for a device because that is the cadence of discounts. We have no idea of what individual companies will do about unlimited in 6 months or 12 months never mind two years or what will happen if the market is restructures with some troubled providers (like Sprint) companies being acquired and less competition. Lots of services could cost more.

    Sprint used to have blackberry data plans. One came with unlimited email and 5g of data while the other comes with unlimited email and unlimited data. The New everything plan comes with unlimited data. And sprint also has the mobile broadband card that is limited to 5gigs, but thats for laptops. I still have my free incoming plan with unlimited data for $15.

    It's not really unlimited. It's got a 5GB data limit on EVDO.

    Think of it as unlimited, up to 5GB .

    Not true, Sprint changed the terms of your contract in that regard July 13th, 2008.

    If you look at your contract it states somewhere that they can change the terms of your contract at any time.

    My plan says I have unlimited data but then next to it refers to the 5GB limitation.
