I don't know about everyone else but both comcast and atnt have limits on their internet usage as well. I don't get the point of buying all these high end phones and the need to buy faster ones when were being limited???

they put a limit on it because only 95% of people with smart phone use 2GB or less a month. i hit 2gb in my first few days. im actually working on hitting 8gb of data. boy do i love my unlimited data.

And why do you think Comcast started to cap their Internet plans, now? Their rationale is -ok guys you can cut the cable, but we will get you on the other side with overages.

wait.. there wasnt a wifi option on the netflix iOS app already? You couldnt just turn your iphone to Wifi and run netflix like you can with any app on android!?!?!?

And this is the "easy" OS?? WTF....

Why is WiFi only a good thing? If I want to use up my data on Netflix and nothing else why not? This is a bad thing. Like remixfa said. Doesn't the iphone start using WiFi for data as soon as it connects and stops using carrier data?
