    It will most likely happen in the future, but has not been announced yet. I don't think they can legally change existing contracts so it would probably only for people signing new contracts.

    Unfortunately, I'd venture to say it's a reality that every consumer on every network will soon face. As apps and internet content becomes more and more data intensive, carriers will have to find ways to moderate the amount of data used per phone. What's more, I'm sure Big Red would love to entice would-be smartphone users into a purchase by offering cheap $10/mo. data packages.

    I am sure it will happen eventually. No need to worry if you're an existing customer though as you can be grandfathered in. That's why we pay $4.99 for insurance with a $50 deductible on our "smartphones" - we were grandfathered in.

    I wouldn't mind tiered data, but the days of charging more for txt messaging has to stop. It's blatant thievery.

    I'm betting this will be part of the LTE rollout, if not sooner.

    You know. I bet you're right on the money with the timeframe. Maybe you can hangout on the 3g for the same price unlimited but to go new-gen LTE it'll be tiered.

    Exactly. People who abuse the data is why they wont be giving unlimited data anymore once LTE rolls out.
