    What about spoofing a legit wifi? I read somewhere that some cat did an experiment where he spoofed an airports legit wifi portal. Users connected thinking they were on the airports, but were in reality hooked to his. He then was able to gain access tho the devices connected. Think I am with you Del, prefer to control my own device.

    I always prefer control. Refuse to use Facebook app since they found a hole in it. S hole that any app that uses facebook has as well. They patched facebook, but each app needs to he patched manually.

    I do not like this at all. I prefer using WiFi when I wish to use it, not when a third-party thinks I should. Beside, carriers already have the ability to throttle or bill customers who exceed their data caps.
