Apply Shock free Data to ALL plans not just the new ones. Having to change a fantastic plan just to get a shockfree bill stinks! You can still keep the same overage rates as whatever each plan states, but PAUSE the data when they reach their plan limit.

Hello.

I believe it's on of their marketing techniques in order to change for the new plans.

In the meantime, if you're using an Android the device usually has a built in data limiter under settings... DATA useage.

It's not wholly accurate but it does cut all data when your limit is reached.

If you need a more accurate measurement you can use the android app "3G Watchdog" which allows you to set limits and measurement rules (like not counting Mms use).

Not sure if iPhone has the same functions or app but I would assume if android has it, iPhone has it (or will have it two years later :) )

@Rachel, notifications are still sent to even the old plans, although you are right data is not blocked on those.
