That's just semantics. Even with mobile data streams there still the concept of upload and download.

But in regard to using and being charged for data perhaps this is another of those global telecoms anomalies.

I'm in the UK. My son has an iPhone with a pay-as-you-go sim. The same is true of my daughters data allowance on contract with a different provider. Once the 3g data allowance is used up they can no longer upload or download in the traditional sense. Yet, without financial or data use penalty, they can still receive push email.
