I'm sure by now you have heard about the unlimited data plan war going on between mobile providers. The top four U.S. carriers have been battling it out for some time now.

It all began when Verizon started offering unlimited plans to customers again. The communications giant hadn't offered these plans to new customers in over five years.

That move led to the other providers following up with changes to their unlimited offerings. This all sounds great for the consumer since fierce competition typically means great deals.

But are these unlimited data plans right for everyone? The quick answer is no.

That's why you need to know about these 'gotchas' hidden in the details of the fine print.

First, let's compare current prices being offered. Then we'll get into the gotchas.
