  • AT&T May Release Not-So-New Data Plans July 25th



    There are reports this weekend of AT&T preparing to roll out a rebundling of its wireless plans beginning tomorrow, July 25th. On the heels of Paul's report earlier that a Yankee Group survey indicates that 73% of iPhone users are actually very satisfied with AT&T's service, now comes word that the carrier will begin a big push of newly created data plans with which to entice both current and prospective customers.

    As reported by Engadget, it appears AT&T's new marketing effort behind the new data plans will concentrate on text messaging. Of course, from the looks of things, it doesn't appear that the plans expected to arrive tomorrow will be greatly different from anything we've seen before. Instead, AT&T is widely expected to unveil smaller messaging plans and a new pay-per-use program that could be either very cheap or ridiculously expensive depending on the type of mobile user you are.

    We've also confirmed that nothing at all should be changing (you can still add select messaging plans to PPU options) in terms of pricing -- it's mostly just reshuffling the furniture, if you know what we mean.
    Of course, AT&T isn't the only carrier tinkering with new data plans. It is believe that as early as this coming Thursday, Verizon will similarly release a new slate of more limited data plans. Multiple major media outlets have reported that Verizon is likely to follow suit with AT&T and effectively kill the unlimited data plan option.

    Whatever AT&T has planned, however, the company is operating from a position of strength. On Thursday, the carrier announced strong quarterly earnings, noting that the exclusive US iPhone carrier activated 3.2 million Apple handsets in the last quarter alone. AT&T says its huge sales and iPhone activation came in at a rate of 10 times higher than that seen last year with the iPhone 3GS.

I mean did I do enough? Could I have done just one more tour for those that don't like me? Then a bit of anger comes, that is quickly overshadowed by a simple WOW. Perhaps we thru history and present day have made a difference. I mean this guy such as yourself can freely express himself without fear of death to what he says. So.... Thank you for showing me that our freedom still exhists.

      Until you have picked up pieces of your friends and served, do not presume to know what is deserved or undeserved for servicemen...Most are dedicated, but like any large mass group, there are always exceptions.
      I despise civilians that stereotype military personnel based upon a highlighted news story...
      I shudder to consider what other groups you stereotype.

      Uhh...what? I pay about $91 a month including taxes and I have the 450min plan, unlimited messaging(text, picture, video), and unlimited data(web and email) yet i'm still on the old iphone plan and i've been told anyone can request their account to be provisioned to keep this as long as they keep an iphone on it for the majority of each billing cycle and they activated under the old iphone data plan.

      can anyone comment on this and verify if this is true or not? i wouldn't be surprised if i checked my att account info next billing cycle and found that i'd been kicked down to the $25 datapro package instead.

      I won't bother quoting it but it needs to be voiced that we NEED to support our troops. Here is a quote I've heard that speaks to this. If you won't stand behind our troops then may God help you if you stand in front of them. It goes something like that.

      If they weren't in Afghanistan and Iraq fighting whomever claims death to america then those same terrorists would be over here doing a lot more damage than the few tragedies that have already occurred.

      Furthermore, the utmost respect should be given to those soldiers both US and allies of ours that have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live just a little bit safer.

      I pay an average of $190 monthly. 5 lines. Family unlimited text. 700 minutes (only 2 lines use most of the minutes but the rollover is at an average of 2000 mins monthly). 2 iPhones with unlimited data and the 3 are just for voice. Not bad.

      So to let you know unlimited talk plans do not get company discounts that includes military discounts. So you will still get a discount on the data plan but not on the unlimited talk plan. Now I think most military discounts run in the 15 to 19% off which is ok not amazing but you would get that percent off on the 30 or 25$ smart phone plan but not the unlimited voice.

      Just shows how stupid you are. I never asked for anything!!!! LEARN TO READ. Also I am a EOD troop in the Air Force. Nuff of this you arrogant child. No I'm not more of a man because I'd prefer to continue this conversation over the phone. You are truly lost and totally not in touch with reality. Have a great life and I hope you never need the service of military, EMT, Police, or fire department. Because they too get discounts and have died or been shot at doing their job. Oh and pack your bags and move to another country to see how well you have it. Or are you that ignorant to not realize. Such a child... As for calling me stupid!?! Really? You don't even know me yet you judge. My friend I have a MBA, speak 6 languages fluently and all a while never been in a tank. As for my injuries if you must know... You much hated military and Corp of engineers build schools and hp's in afganistan. Well people like you that hate even non combat force such as my career plant bombs at these locations. Only difference in them is we call them terrorists and or enemies. For you just uneducated winers that have nothing better to do but hate people. It's people like you that we have extremists and racists in our country.

      Problem with me you are free to call and hate on me as a person for something that I may have done to you. But first call me so you can atleast get to know who you judge.

      For everyone else that reads this I apologize for this. I never thought anyone would get this mad at someone they do not know. Also please reade my original post below... I had no idea there are people that would twist words to try and spark an argument.

      $80 !! lucky you., I was paying about $140 for the same. now that my wife ported over from t-mobile, we are now paying $210 for two iPhones on a 1400min shared rate plan. still way too much.
      Yes it's spendy. However I wouldn't say lucky me. While I love and totally feel humble and some times not worthy of military discounts. I would trade it for my health back. Missing ribs broken back and neck is not fun expecially how it happened. After 21 yrs in no major issues until now and boy did my war luck run out. hmm 15 weeks bed rest and counting. That's not luck... ..... But like I said I am humble and very thankful for any discount. Though I usually hate advertising it. As I am sure many of you all on here work as hard as we do. So it kinda makes ya feel bad. I hope that the rates do eventually drop for all. I think the price of high speed Internet at say $50 a month for unlimited everything would be fair. Perhaps the voip world will drive prices lower as did Netflix with video rentals. Time will tell.

      Hope the new rates lower your bill!!!!!

      Granted there are mistakes that have been made and maybe places that we shouldn't be sticking our faces into, but those decisions are made by politicians and advisors and those in the upper levels of our government. The military has the obligation to uphold and carry out those decisions.

      One of the biggest reasons you're not speaking Japanese or Arabic or some other foreign language is because we have never been invaded since the War of 1812 because we continue to maintain a very strong military force as a natural deterrent. Our defense budget is one of the largest if not THE largest expenditure of the government.

      So no were not asking for excessive special treatment. But respect.....I think the military does deserve that. Because were out there doing the sh!t that people like you and the majority of this country refuse to do, but needs to be done.

      We didn't ask for discounts and special "military only" offers, but apparently there are people and companies out there that do respect what the military does and provide those services as a courtesy and token of gratitude.

      If you don't like it then too f**king bad! Deal with it!
      Thank You for your response! If people here can't respect the sacrifice we make then the door is always open to go to any other country where they think they will have the freedoms of the U.S.A. !

      So i'm supposed to give you respect because you have a MBA and speak 6 languages? You broke some ribs....blah blah, that was your choice, nobody should give you any special treatment for making an idiotic decision. And please dont assume my "hate" (if you can call it that) towards the millitary is for the police, emts, and firemen - these folks are real heroes, protecting OUR interests directly, here locally. I hold the upmost respect for these people, and yes there are some bad apples and whatnot, but these people risk their lives every friggin day to help people in need and that deserves respect. Not some war over oil! And please dont tell me you have not screwed some local middle eastern prostitute and paid her with my tax dollars because you will only be lying to yourself.

      By the way, i have a BA and make more money than you and i only speak two languages - so i guess under your mindless meathead rule, i deserve respect, right? Arrogant child? bah! But not to sound childish, but I imagine you looking and sounding like the character "General Monger" from the Monsters vs Aliens movie i took my 6 year old son to see several months ago. You know its true.........hahaha

      Wow I pay nearly $460 each month to AT&T for 6 lines with unlimited web and text on each line on a 1400 shared national account, minus the FAN code I have with them which only saves me about $25.00 on features. Not a whole lot of savings. I need a military account. Hehe
