Well, it's not really an issue for me now. Since I buy my phones outright and use prepaid and my broadband is obviously unlimited, as is standard
It was like 10 years ago that I got stung with that $1500 phone bill for going a gig over my limit.. And at the time, it was blood from a rock anyway.
So truth be told, whether I was just blaming others for my own mistakes or not, is kinda irrelevant. The bill was never going to get paid either
Anyway... I just think these companies have a moral obligation to inform people via text (or whatever) if they're about to go over their data limit
and what they'll be charged, it just seems like a predatory business practice not to.
I mean damn, they always fire me off a text on my prepaid service to inform me I'm down to 500mg and a friendly reminder to "top up soon".
Just seems suspiciously convenient if some companies still aren't sending warning texts these days to customers about exceeding their limit, when it
works to their advantage.
