I don't remember what company(s) it was, as it was a few years ago. A suit would either go nowhere or be insignificant.
    There was the Verizon one where your receipt had the last 4 numbers of your credit card. That one got a choice of a free corded earpiece or 100 free text messages. The next one was being charged $1.99 for data you didn't use. Every month I'd call them, they'd credit me the $1.99 but when the suit was settled they knocked the amount charged over the years off again. I tried to tell them they didn't owe it (since I was always on the phone wanting my refund I found it only fitting to let them know when they messed up the other way). They said they had no choice but to refund again. I don't remember what the last one was but they gave me the choice to join or not and I declined. All I remember was it didn't affect me.
    I was in a suit without knowing once with Sears and they ended up sending me a check for under $2 because I had closed my account years prior and they couldn't apply it to the balance. That was something about how they charged interest on their credit cards.

    Just accept it, IF it ever happens, and move on.
    Except that AT&T isn't MAKING people give up their unlimited or telling them if they sign a new contract unlimited goes away, they just don't offer it any longer.

    Well for one me. I was ready for an update and if I got a new phone and then signed up for a new 2 year contract I would lose unlimited data. I was able to keep it by buying my phone out right.

    You were "made' to give it up because you entered into a new contract with a subsidized phone...Basically the contract was they will give you a phone at a cheaper than retail price, in return, you have to be binding to the contract. You weren't forced into it, you choose the situation. If you wanted the phone cheaper, then you had to give up unlimited.

    What Kodiak was asking, i believe, was who has Verizon forced to give it up unlimited, outside of a new contract?

    Semantics, if I wanted a new phone I would lose unlimited data. As about the phone being subsidized you actually pay full price for the phone over the two year contract.
    You are right nobody put a gun to my head, it was my choice.

    I can survive no problem on 1 gig of data...just have to be careful when I travel (or spend an extra 10 bucks for another gig in months I travel).

    I just can't be sympathetic to the arguments and complaining when only about 3 years ago you had to really, really try to go over 2 gigs in a month. Even the vast, vast majority of complainers would not be overly put out or inconvenienced to adjust their usage habits.
    My plan would be to sign up for the new service prior to ending my Verizon contract. There is always a grace period for new service. It it didn't work for me then I'd keep Verizon as a last resort.

    So, in other words, VZW did NOT make you give up you your unlimited data...

    I've got news for you, Ask Maggie readers. The cell phone toting public in the U.S. has been hoodwinked into continuing to pay high service fees on devices even after we have paid for the devices in full.

    Wireless operators tell us their expensive early termination fees are to recoup the subsidy paid for our phones if we leave the service before our contracts expire. That may be so. But why doesn't the price of our monthly services get reduced once that subsidy is paid? This is the question I answer in this edition of Ask Maggie. But before you get too angry, I have good news. There is one service provider out there who sees the justice in slashing service fees once devices are paid for. And with any luck, others may follow in the future.
