Yeah.. A One on the way
Sprint and I have been at each others throats for months.
Yes. I tether. I tether to my ps3 for Netflix every night. Average 3 gigs per. My girl watches while I'm asleep vice versa blah blah.....
Got a call a month, or so, ago from Sprint... "your data usage is very high please blah blah..."
Spoke with some guy and asked, "hey define unlimited."
He couldn't and we went about........
3 days ago Sprint says, "as a courtesy for being such a long time loyal sheep customer douche, we will give you till the 20th (August) to use your phone, then we are disconnecting your line. (I'm in a family plan total 3 lines.) We aren't changing the price/rate of the family plan, just dropping your number."
Cue violent migraine
I love escalating truth and reason to the higher ups.
I called and again asked for the definition of unlimited data packets from the tower... Never got one.
Now I'm livid.
I got a 4G LTE preorder last June and still have yet to experience 4G.
Here's my rub and please correct me if needed
I paid 500 bucks for this phone. I joined sprint cause I moved to a territory of the us that has only sprint towers... (save for some crap att)
THE INHERENT FUNCTION OF MY EXPENSIVE PHONE IS TETHERING. BUILT IN..............
I told Sprint that I refuse to pay for an inherent function of the phone.
They tried to cancel me
Skip ahead a few days involving bickering with innocent and honest low level people that actually saw my way...
Then I called and said, "fine, (another carrier) will suit me perfectly. Data is data is data. You cannot double dip on functions my phone was built to do."
To sum they are sending me a silver One. The rep made me get a new number to fool Billing thinking I was actually canceled.
how in the heck was sprint able to list every device I've tethered to?
What file should I modify? What steps should I take to ensure Sprint has no clue what's being transferred?
I've been rooted forever been using wifi tether since forever.... How do I hide the tether? (even though I think its a phone function that should be free)
Also, I'm on Venom. (till that "oh-we-love-you" One is at my door)
Sure they went above and beyond to make me happy. I got a One. Cool... Why is unlimited defined in so many ways?
Telecoms are worse than evil.
