I have an AT&T “dumbphone” that requires no data plan.

I have two such devices & would gladly cancel my cellular data plan and use my WiFi network for data if AT&T would allow it.

Instead, I make sure I’m maxing out my data allowance each month even if it means muting the devices & streaming netflix movies while they sit on my desk.

If AT&T was really worried about data use on their network, they’d let users like me out of their forced charge cage.
