“Unlimited means unlimited…”
Followed by a contradictory statement of something along the lines of:
“BUT…there are Terms and Conditions or an AUP that may or may not impose some undefined limits of some sort.”
That’s kinda what I had expected hear.
I had a look at R.W.'s AUP. Seems number 14-19 gives me the info i need. Most specifically:
17. repetitive and/or continuous messaging or calling to the same destination or number if such activity could reasonably be expected to or in fact does provoke complaints;
18. long duration calls (defined as calls to the same number in excess of four continuous or cumulative hours within a 24 hour period) and/or calls placed to specific numbers / destinations for the purpose of generating charges or fees for or with a third party;
So, according to these points, unlimited is indeed limited as it sates for "long duration calls - not in excess of 4 continuous or cumulative hours within a 24hr period.
However, then i re-read it and see the line that i bolded. So that stipulation only applies if the user intended to generate fees for the other party (say to make the other party go over and get a surcharge fee).
So now my questions how does R.W. determine this key factor of a long call vs just seeing that a user is just on normal call for 6+ hours?
I do know a person who uses some old cell phones as a 2 way intercom/room monitor. They have a script on the phone that will call back if the call is disconnected and the other will auto answer and go in to speaker phone mode. They been doing that 24/7 for over 2 yrs. But he is not in USA.
