    5 gig limit on an unlimited wireless aircard

    i am new to this site and i think i put this in the wrong spot so dont get mad... anyone have verizon turn off your wireless aircard for laptop because your mb usage was too high? I had verizon aircard with unlimited airtime and unlimited mb usage. Verizon told me i downloaded too much????? They told me on my original receipt it said there was a cap of 5 gig download.... well i found my receipt that in black and white says UNLIMITED MB ALLOWANCE. On the final bill that they sent me for going over the allowable mb usage it says "unlimited mb allowance".....Anyone have any ideas what this is about, is it legal, are there any class action lawsuits pending due to breach of contract, is there a governing agency that handles fraud to large cooperations? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It is a bad and deceptive policy that Verizon has regaurding the limited unlimited usage. 5GB a month doesn't really seem like much to me. I guess it is where they start losing money or not making enough profit on the sub so they cut them off.

    Nobody on here will disagree with what you are saying. While thats no consolation, Verizon has these limits in place and your receipt won't change that.

    fortunately in my case i didnt even pay for the aircard, i work in law enforcement and the card was free of charge due to the account i was on. so i am not out anything other than their so called high speed internet aircard which was slow to begin with so there is no loss on my side which i cant sue them. It just bothers me that the 5 gig limit they place on an "unlimited mb allowance" is rediculous.

    Considering their math abilities as recently discussed in other threads, they'll probably argue you can have as many megabytes you want but only 5 gigabytes
