I asked an online rep if the limit was 2GB, and she said that all customers 
were subject to that restriction..

I heard about the 250GB thing as well, but it takes a lot of downloading to 
get that far.  When I asked about 2 GB, and she said yes, I couldn't believe 

Either the rep who responded to my question was not informed, answered 
incorrectly, OR they have choked us down to 2 GB.

When I read that, I filed the complaint.  There's no way I could do what I do 
in a month and stay under that limit.  The real kicker is that the 
conversation log didn't save as it said, so what I have is all garbeled.  

See Ya'
