Walmart Smart Talk Unlimited iPhone 5 Data Plan Has a Cap

One the most interesting things to happen the mobile phone world over the last several months was Walmart's announcement earlier this month of its Straight Talk Unlimited plan for $45 per month. This Unlimited plan promised all the phone calls, text, and data consumers can use on their iPhone at a impressively low price. Naturally users have to pay cash up front for the iPhone itself, which was far from cheap.

However, now that the plan has been available for a while people have time to poke around and look at the fine print. As it turns out the unlimited data offering isn't exactly unlimited. Walmart's Unlimited plan actually has data cap at 2 GB per month that went pretty much unstated.

Walmart may technically be accurate in calling the plan unlimited, they don't cut you off or charge more, they simply throttle your data speed. I'm of the opinion that a cap is a cap no matter how you phrase it. If you're considering this plan at least now you know your speech will be slowed significantly once you pass that 2 gigabyte monthly usage limit.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
