Well, thankfully its only top 5% of data users in high congested areas. With wifi, doesn't count thankfully haha. But I do agree its wrong to put caps on some customers.

I wonder if there'll be a way to tell when it's actually happening to you vs just slow network etc?

Atleast to hit whats Sprints says is a "high user" is to be 5GB of data (not including Wifi). Takes a lot to hit 5GB unless doing Sam ROMs downloaded by data everyday haha.

Agree to that, notifying would be good. I was assuming using wifi for larger files.

I used 6 gigs the first 5 days of my billing cycle. There is no other reason to be on sprint other than unlimited data.
