    Excellent idea....that way you can overload the network to a certain
    degree and cause inconvenience to other users who have nothing to do
    with this issue in the first place.....

    You Sir are a Moron.

    Here I thought you paid to use the sprint network. Oh wait you are right sprint
    deserves to have our money and give us nothing for it. Even customers who
    have used sprint service for years still are not seen as valuable loyal
    customers. The joke that is unlimited vision is just another slap in the
    face. You can also rate limit so that the connection doesn't strain
    service. One would hope sprint actually built a network to support their
    current user base but most of us know better.

    Am I happy to see Sprint not allow me to use my phone
    as a modem, under my Vision plan?

    Absolutely not.

    My choices?

    1) Accept their terms.
    2) Don't accept their terms and fight them in court.
    3) Don't accept their terms and drop the service.

    Trying to screw them (and others, sharing bandwidth)
    accomplishes absolutely nothing.

    Exactly.

    If you're currently using your phone as a modem, and getting away with it,
    why not just lay low?

    Larry

    By the way, if you *are* found to be abusing the system, they're not
    going to suddenly drop your service, they'll issue a warning.

    It *would* be nice if Sprint gave us 1Gig(or whatever)/month for "modem" use.

    OK, to use your earlier restaurant analogy...

    You go into an all-you-can-eat establishment, and stuff yourself.

    So far, no problem.

    But, then you go into the restroom (hopefully!) and vomit. Afterwards,
    you come out, eat more food, and repeat this disgusting process.

    According to you, because the sign says, "All You Can Eat," you're
    covered.

    Well, they might not throw you out, immediately, but you can bet
    you ass that you won't be welcomed back.

    Do they have the right? Absolutely.

    And so does Sprint, if you're found to be wasting bandwidth, just
    to screw with them.

    You're analogy, not mine.

    Ooops!

    For the purists, that was "Your analogy," not "You're analogy!"

    I reccommend disabling call waiting and making a call at 9PM and staying
    on that call for an entire billing period. If you have Unlimited N&W you
    basically pay nothing for the call. If you only have 3000 or so minutes,
    your in for quite a shock.
