    Hey
    The iPhone's tariffs include 'Unlimited Data' but when I registered my iPhone, my dad said, "You have unlimited internet use (Edge, GPRS etc.) as long as you don't overuse it."
    Is this right? Or is it completely unlimited?

    Thanks,
    Arran

    Yep, in the US it is truly unlimited data. I have read that some other countries have different interpretations of what "unlimited" means.

    Well, I'm in the UK so...

    And on the o2 tariffs page it says
    'Inclusive data and Wi-Fi applies to use in the UK only, at any of The Cloud's hotspots for Wi-Fi, subject to fair use policy. Visit o2.co.uk/terms for full tariff terms and airtime agreement.'

    Just found this 'O2, whose rates have been up since day one, has a slightly vaguer "fair usage policy" that gives O2 the right to slap you with extra charges or change your rate plan if you exceed 200MB of use, though they claim this rarely happens.'
    :s I should be ok though I've only on Sent: 1.2 MB and Received 5.3MB so far.

    Truly unlimited within the limits they do not inform you of. Just as with unlimited internet, provided by companies like Comcast, if they think you use it too much they reserve the right to throttle you. I know I read it somewhere in the fine print or the person selling me the phone back on iday informed me of this. I don't know of any cases where they actually did any throttling though.

    The only limit that I know of is the basic limit of 200 sms messages.

    So I have grandfathered unlimited data with AT&T. If I upgrade iPhone will I lose unlimited data? If so I'll stay with what I have.
