U guys should look over this thread and look at their experiences. Removing a throttle isn't as bad as it seems sometimes.
So basically you'll be fine so long as you stay under AT&T's radar and not get into their top 5% because once you do you won't get a warning from ST or AT&T you just get throttled permanently.
I still don't understand how they can share throttling responsibility. Has this been confirmed ? The few people I talked to at ST before getting the last rep that took off the throttle, also said my account looked fine, and that there was no throttling being done.
So if you're going by the rep that told you that you weren't throttled by ST, but by AT&T, could be lying :/
I thought I was getting throttled (even tho I use very little data, mostly on wifi) but it seems to me on speedtest.net app you have to run the app a few times ..first time I got .5 down and then after about 3 times trying (4am mind you) I got about 7 down and 2 up. I'm starting to believe the speedtest.net app downloads its ads and etc during the initial test. ALSO beware that with my 3rd test, I burned 15mb! So if some of you are following the 100mbs a day rule thingy, a few of these in conjunction with your daily data use will put you over the top!
There is a user on xda-developers forum who used to be a "tech/sales/fraud/CustSvc support for ST/NET10/TF", and is now on "AT&T tech" (quote/unquote).
He's been answering a lot of ST questions.
He may possibly be able to shed some light on the throttling subject.

Have you considered the possibility that your experience was not the result of a deliberate throttle, but the result of some kind of error or incompetence on the part of ST's or AT&T's staff? How about a defect with your SIM?
Given my experience with ST, this seems far more likely than the possibility that ST or AT&T have an impossible to lift throttle.
I mean, with respect to everyone's posts, anything is possible with straight talk. What I ascertained was that they definitely lie to you, about anything, throttle, network speeds...everything. But there are some who eventually tell the truth. I know that they log calls because some of the reps verified my calls in. They probably would go so far as to wait til they see a bunch of attempts and then be more helpful. Never know, all their calls are obviously outsourced to the lowest quality reps so they have the time to play games. Waiting for an outburst so they can deny service....lol
My data got throttled I called the "managers " number was on the phone for 3 hours with no fix . Submitted a ticket on st fb fixed in 15 minutes
Heyy I miss this thread, lol. Yeah that sounds right. Usually it takes a few phone calls and a buttery, sweet attitude to finally get to the right person who wants to actually lift the throttle. Like your case, I've heard lots of success for getting things resolved on the Facebook support site.
How was your usage pre throttling ?I'm curious
Has anyone with a Samsung proclaim been throttled? Or any Verizon plans for that matter?
