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.

Welcome To... Umbria Rocks

La Dolce Vita...Umbria Rocks already has a distinct advantage over the plethora of other European festivals, even in this, its first year. It’s all in the name: Umbria. The stunning Etruscan countryside north of Rome is dotted with ancient villages and spectacular walled towns. Such landscapes make us come over a bit funny: giddy, limpid and ‘Room With A View’ romantic. It’s a ‘destination’ festival, that’s for sure. Taking pl ...

Premiere: Dark Horses - Saturn Returns

Source: Clash Music

Listen to it now...Dark Horses sound dangerous. Dark, demented rock 'n' roll with a psychedelic twist, they seem - to put it mildly - like the sort of kids who wouldn't be trusted with the scissors during Primary School art lessons. There's that twinkle of dis-obedience in their music, that slight seam of independence which refuses to be crushed. The Brighton group's second album arrives next month, but before then Dark Horses will release new single ...

This WeSC shirt then, with its gravel like, paint splattered esc print, is a definite new favourite. Not exactly Pollock or even a Craig Green, the all over decoration is nonetheless worthy of several rounds of any room. Made of cotton, it’ll treat you well in ...
