I really want to get a better idea of what the Straight Talk data limit truly is. I've tried calling their Miami corporate office a few times and have never gotten a "straight" or correct answer. They keep telling me its unlimited except no tethering. I specifically asked if streaming Youtube or Pandora is ok, and they said yes. We know those 2 activities are not ok per ST's terms and conditions.
Theres been many reports from users asking ST, the limit is 2GB, maybe 5GB. A Hofo user, Antenna reported that he was shut off after using around 300MB in a single day but still being under 2GB for the month. (http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...8#post14541478) Other users have reported being shut off while also being under 2GB a month, but it could very well be they went over 100MB of data in a day or maybe was using the phone while "roaming" on another GSM provider ST has agreements with. Heres another user who emailed ST about the limit: http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...about-data-use. Also got a run around answer.
I've personally concluded that the safest way to keep your ST $45 unlocked SIM is to keep it within 2GB a month and 70MB (possibly 100MB) a day. But perhaps thats overly conservative and I want to get a better idea, so if you have ever been cut off by ST and know how much data you used or they told you, please post here.
PS. I am NOT starting a discussion about what unlimited means or how this isn't unlimited and its not fair. We already know ST's $45 plan is not unlimited. Thanks
