I used to have an unlimited EVDO service from Sprint, when they changed to
5GB I called to complain and was advised that my plan was grandfathered, my
new limit 5GB but with $0/GB overage.

Its 5GB, trust me on that one.  Former roommate worked for Verizon Wireless
as a high level blackberry tech in the local call center - they quietly
added the cap to all plans over the past year after adding all these little
disclaimers to sales docs, websites, etc.

She came home and warned us one day that our EVDO modem on the business
account was now capped, even though it was originally 'unlimited'. IIRC,
they'll start billing you per megabyte or gigabyte after 5GB. I've not had
an oppertunity to test this, so I'm only going by what I was told.

It does, 5GB as well, but I believe they throttle you down majorly once you
hit the cap.  I'll keep my eyes on the fine print next time I see a Clear
commercial here.
