Sprint will offer unlimited data plans for LTE iPhone

Truly unlimited data plans are becoming something of an endangered species. First AT&T killed its off, then Verizon did away with its unlimited data plan, and now the only place a potential iPhone customer can go to get as much data as he or she wants in the US is Sprint. However, with the new iPad rockin’ LTE support, many were worried that when…

Sprint confirms unlimited 4G data plans, perfect for 4G iPhone

Before the iPhone 3G came out in 2008, my family and I were on Sprint’s network.

iPhone 4S data and voice plans: What the top 3 US carriers are offering

I’m sure I don’t have to let you guys know that the iPhone 4S goes on pre-order at 12:01 tonight (3 a.m. ET) – well, technically it’s tomorrow morning, if you want to get all technical about it… Anyway, regardless of the generally underwhelmed reaction to the device, there’s no doubt in my mind that pre-orders will still reach astronomical numbers. And…

Verizon throttling top 5% of unlimited data users

As we’ve been expecting for some time, Verizon has now started throttling speeds for the highest data consumers on its unlimited plans.
