I would suggest using 3g watchdog if using a android i had a nokia e71 when it first came out and got the dreaded call from using youtube too much. They eventually disabled you tube on the e71. Needless to say my phone stays on wifi when at home or where available.

I just got a call from 800-989-1506 and didn't answer. I googled the number and some people said it was spam but it also showed a link to this thread. Does anyone know if its actually from straight talk? I have been tethering and using a lot of data so I'm worried they were trying to warn me. Thanks.
just called that Number.. Yep, it was straight talk..
sorry in advance if this is in the wrong section, but i'm real torn between Tmo's plan and this one off of ATT, my question is would using the data to tether for gaming (is that even possible on ST?) would the 100mb a day be crossed if i gamed for a few hours cause i'm not sure how much it uses (i've been told not a lot).

its for league of legends, yea I know T-mobile would be better but when i look at the coverage it looks like my house is right in a 2g area surrounded close by 4g so idk if i'd get good connection or not, also we don't have any options for internet aside from using mifi/phone because we won't pay for sattelite
I got a call today. Last weekend I forgot to turn off the tethering function and my computer automatically connected to the cellphone network and was set to auto play youtube videos.
My bad. I'm on ATT network.
Does anyone has experience on what they would do after the first phone call?
http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/board...d.php?t=191041A 30 minute game goes around an average of 10MB of data usage. [ Approximate estimate over bandwidth monitoring over 30 or so games.]
So 1 hour = ~20MB and 5 hours = ~100MB. You also have to watch out for patches/updates to the game, as those could run several hundred megs.
(No I dont play, I just know how to use Google )
HERE IS PROOF STRAIGHT TALK IS CAPPED at least on the ATT end... p.s. my name is not jope "Thank you for choosing to chat today. Unfortunately Stacy is busy assisting other customers. An available representative will be with you shortly.
My name is Marissa, how can I help you today?
Marissa: I am happy to assist you. Can I have your name please?
You: hi there i have just a quick question about your data is it truely unlimited or is it secretly capped at 2Gb since its on att network with the sim program
You: my name is jope
Marissa: Hello Jope, Can I get the zip code of the area where you wish to use our services?
Marissa: Thanks for your patience.
You: no problem but is the sim card data truely unlimited or will my service be terminated if i go over
You: 2gb sorry about the typo
Marissa: After spending 2gb its just stopped.
You: ok thank you for your time"
Theres absolutely no evidence they cap after 2GB, plenty of people have gone past 2GB. The rep is clueless just like most ST/TF reps
