    Yes! I'm glad there is someone on this board with some brain cells. The asterisked fine print should only be used to clarify finer points of the umbrella advertisement...not to serve as a "bait and switch" tactic. Don't use your main advert to lie to people by using the same language as those who use the same language for the truth of what "unlimited" means to the average consumer. When I purchased my Droid in 2009 and my Droid Bionic in 2011 for their discounted price of the 2 year commitment...."Unlimited data" meant infinite usage of internet in all its forms for $80/month. Not "use 2GB and then you pay extra....just because your phone has the capability." There would be no need to advertise the fact that the plan/phone has the ability to use infinite amount of data because they always have had that part of it....unless it would be used to deceive on the price of usage. If I went to the Chinese buffet and they charged me extra for the egg rolls when they used to be part of the "all you can eat"...I would never go back to that restaurant.
