  • AT&T Data Calculator - You Might Need It!
    With AT&T changing their data plans you might need this! And its unbelievable that we would even have to think of using such a thing! I thought I should post this so everyone knows of it. Its really easy to use. Just slide the sliders for each thing you do in a day or month.

    For instance if you sent 20 email message out in one day and received 30 you would slide the slider to 50 in a day for emails sent/received in one day with no attachments.

    They have many categories that one would do in a day such as email, emails with photos, emails sent with attachments, hours of streaming music, web pages viewed, apps/games/songs downloaded, social media posts with photos uploaded and minutes of streaming video.

    Say you streamed music for 2.5 hours according to their calculator you would use 2.15 GB of data.

    So if you are one that doesn't keep your unlimited data plan you better bookmark this. And if you go over you can tell them that you used their data calculator!

      totally agree. This is just plain dumb. You wont be able to listen to Pandora, Video Conference or Watch YouTube on 3g with out going over the new 2 gig Cap on new plans. They should offer 3 plans 200mb, 2gig, and unlimited or there better be free wifi everywhere you go in order for the new phone to be more effective, but that is just not the reality. I guess for everyone who wants there Unlimited 3G Data plan you are going to have to pony up the money to Apple and Buy a phone with out the contract and swap sims. I would suggest getting the phone with the 200mb plan and get the Sprint 4G overdrive if i was a new att customer.

      Monday needs to just f***ing get here faster.

      I feel like Cartman on the episode of South Park when he couldn't wait until the Wii comes out so he froze himself.

      I want to do that..

      .. someone freeze me.

      New data plans
      New iPhone
      New OS
      New headaches
      New debts

      ... just f***ing get here already... damn.

      Same, but screw it. With T-mobile I may not get 3G, but I can still tether my computer to my iphone and get online when I need to, so who cares, my boyfriend has ATT&T and his 3G coverage is spotty so he's on edge a lot anyway, plus I only pay about 2/3 as much for my unlimited data/text as AT&T customers...

      I think AT&T pulling the plug on its unlimited service is crap, it's like those stories you hear about insurance companies dropping customers because they get sick...oh I'm sorry you offered me a service, and I paid for it and actually used it like I'm supposed to be able to.

      What bitrate are they claiming that streaming music for 2 hours equals 2.6 gigs. That number seems really high to me...

      There is also an ATT app for that

      They need to do data rollover

      Hey i have a question. Is there any way possible for me to get a contract with ATT right now but not get a phone, and just wait till the iphone 4g comes out then get it. So i don't have to have the limited data plan? Or do i have to buy a phone if i get a contract?

      once my grandfathered unlimited is gone as so am I and my wife. I wonder how many customers they'll lose doing this. Will they as profitable with the new iphone coming out and then loosing customers to this. It will probably be a wash but what's the point then?

      Been with AT&T for a while now. No data plan. Do it all with wifi for free. But now with the 15.00 plan coming up, that's not a bad deal, might jump on that. Counting the hours to the release date of the new 4g,HD, its upgrade time. Rumors are the 18th? Hope its sooner Wonder what a 3gs 16g is going for on Ebay? Better sell quick before the resale value drops

      Now that's a good idea !!! I like it. Hope the people in att marketing pick up on that.
      Last time I checked, I have 1200 minutes in roll over. I can see it now, 20 gigs in rollover data

      Idk if the guy I talked to just didn't know about it, but I asked him about the new data plans and
      he said you need to have the unlimited data when you get the iPhone so maybe we're wrong?

      I'm glad i'll be on the grandfathered plan. I just need to decide if i'm keeping it while in Australia. Any idea if the grandfathered plan will be forever? or will they eventually make us switch?

      Where in the contract does it state that the iPhone data plan has a limit of 5GB? I looked all the way through it and did not see a mention of a 5GB limit. Unlimited means unlimited not 5GB. I've used well over 10GB in a lot of months and never heard a thing.
