  I doubt that AT&T "made you do it." You say they get a higher royalty
for the unlimited version, why would they force you to offer a less
expensive version?

  As far as I know every vendor who offers the 2 user version also
offers the unlimited. Why do people think that there is something wrong
with having the option of buying something less expensive?
