So we all heard about AT&T’s text message to people who were suspected of unregistered tethering, right? Well get this. This just popped up on my HTC Inspire:
First of all:
1. Their “4G” is a joke. It’s not real 4G, and even if it was, they’re actively capping (no matter what they claim) upload speeds on this phone and the Atrix.
2. This arrived immediately afterward in my inbox:
I did, in fact, take my iPhone 4 SIM out to use in the Inspire for a while. A friend of mine who works at AT&T told me there’s no problem with doing that. So now I’m supposed to contact them to presumably “upgrade my plan” to enjoy the blistering 4G speeds that they’re not even really offering? As I sit here right now, I hear GSM buzz in my speakers because I can’t even get consistent 3G in my home, where I happen to have a MicroCell!
I believe the expression I’m looking for is “go piss up a flagpole“.
