The WORLD, as you can see... MISSES having a Star Trek SERIES! :)
AT&T has decided to violate the U.S. Internet rules by limiting use of Apple Inc's FaceTime application to certain customers.
Other known public interest groups have filed complaints with the FCC about this (http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/09/18/us-att-facetime-idUSBRE88H1DP20120918).
AT&T should give all customers who pay for its mobile Internet service the option to use any Internet application they want to use regardless of which data plan they buy.
June 29th 2007, Apple released the 1st generation iPhone and the service was only available through AT&T. When it was released AT&T offered an UNLIMITED plan to all that signed a 2 year contract. I signed that contract in February of 2008, the first day the iPhone 16GB was released.
I have since then had every iPhone since and have loved my service through AT&T. However, last month (March 2012) I received the following message... "AT&T Free Msg: Your data usage is near 3GB this month. Exceeding 3GB during in future billing cycles will result in reduced speeds, though you'll still be able to email & surf the web. Wi-Fi helps reduced speeds."
Now, after I was on the phone for 40 minutes with the phone number they left me in a text message to call, I was given an explanation that they were trying to stop an overcrowding problem before it starts but when I asked "those who don't have the unlimited plan, will you slow their data service after they reach 3GB's?" and that's when they said "no because they pay for it and that money gets recycled back into the network."

From a company that launched a "Yes, we hear you" campaign in July, 2007.
Well, we ask that you please hear us.
The United States is currently in the worst recession since the Great Depression. With millions of American Citizens out of work, pay decreases, under pay, many hardships have befouled the American people. These hardships have caused credit to be controlled with tighter regulation.
With no fault of their own, citizens with good credit now have been forced into bankruptcy, foreclosures, late pays and repossessions of autos, aircraft, water craft, and personal items.So far in 2010 1,572,597 million bankruptcies have been filed, 1.2 million foreclosed properties, that is 1 in every 78 homes, 1.9 million cars in 2009 and 2010 is up by 8%. Even the wealthy are feeling the down turn, with high end aircraft everything from a Piper Cub airplane to 747 jumbo jets are being recovered by creditors.
Our mission is to restore the health of credit score to individual citizens and business. To promote the responsible use of credit, to facilitate economic growth within the United States of America. To use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.
Rural Canada still has limited Internet access. Dial-up is not always reliable nor affordable. However wireless carriers like Rogers, Bell, Telus and Fido have excellent coverage including rural areas.
By assuring Internet connectivity to rural Canadians, we can expect increased productivity and work opportunities.
Because Internet access via satellite and long distance WIFI networks are very expensive, using the wireless carrier networks would provide Canadians with more choices.
Nintendo Wii has a feature that allows users to copy game data from the Wii console to an SD Card. This feature is useful for two reasons: 1) to back-up game data, and 2) to transfer game data from one Wii console to another Wii console.
On the SD Card designed for the Wii is a message that says “Store your game saves.” This led me to believe that I could use this SD Card to back-up all my game information.
Nintendo encourages backing data up onto an SD Card when sending in a Wii Console for repairs.
I copied most of my saved data fine, but Super Smash Brothers Brawl did not allow me to copy.
I called Nintendo Customer Service and they confirmed that this was intentionally blocked in the programming of Super Smash Brothers Brawl.
This results in having to take the entire Wii Console to a friend’s house to use your unlocked stages/characters. Because we must take the entire console and not only the SD Card, the Wii Console receives more damage and use and wears out sooner. Not being able to back-up saves to an SD Card is a direct link in the chain that leads to a broken Wii Console.
