This top 5% throttling thing is rubbish and arbitrary. If this continues every month by slowing down the top users every month the throttling threshold point would eventually decrease to zero

This makes no sense. The top 5% never becomes more than the top 5%. By definition it will not affect 95% of users.

Just wondering, is there any fix for this or is this a permanent throttle now? I mean I used both 2.3.5 and 2.3.6 Roms and I am still getting throttled. Is anyone having this issue?

I don't know..its still works for me. Weird that its working for some and not others. I wonder if switching the APN before you actually get throttled is the trick for these folks. I would try that on your next billing cycle...right before you hit 5gb switch the APN.

That's what i posted a while back, I constansly change apn
specially when I know I'm reaching the 5GB on LTE.
and after I reached 5GB on any apn I swithc back and forth.
I don't know if it actually does anything or it might just be a sweet sugar pill effect

I was wondering for those who arent throttled, which rom and baseband are you using? I am on the following:

UCLA3 [silverwrx03] baseband
NexusMod 4 rom
2.3.6 base [at&t] w/ network mode enabled

If we cant get any answers for this issue, I will be selling my Skyrocket. Any offers? It is in Mint Condition, been in a Case-Mate case the whole time, no scratches whatsoever. Oh yeah its [black] phone. PM me with offers if interested.

Can anyone confirm this works? Talk to a regular CSR or someone in the special throttling department? Just say my bla bla and my bla bla don't work anymore, can you please reset the "????" ? And they do?
