The whole point of the iPad is the use of Internet access...2 gigs/month??? are you serious? ill go through that within another 2 weeks EASILY. At some point you need to stop fooling yourself and be honest with yourself (because lets be honest, the last person you want to fool or lie to is yourself) because the iPad is purely set up to utilize twice the amount of data than that of any other iDevice and anyone with half of a brain knows this is fact... an iPad on 2 gigs/month is in my opinion useless unless your around a WiFi signal 24/7.

    I agree! Luckly I was grandfathered in with the old unlimited plan, because the new *restrictions* are not called for! I have yet to use less than 2gigs a month. If one does not use their iDevice (iPhone/iPad) to its full potential, that is the only way you can be under 2gigs/mth, and I'm a student and i go over, but there are many people out there that use their iDevices for business so they would love to have an unlimited plan so they are not charged extra for going over the cap.

    People that say they don't use 2Gigs a month don't deserve to have a smartphone... a real smartphone user reach 2Gigs in couple of weeks unless he/she is always on wifi.

Its almost as essential as winterboard)

    its almost discouraging now to embezle your money into apple and at&t. they are making everything so complicated...why cant tmobile or verizon have been the ones to get apple....

    im a graphic design and business student and i go WAY over 2gb in less then a month. its seriously a joke to put a cap at 2gb. luckily im grandfathered into having my unlimited plan until my contract expires. when it does byebye at$t. hopefully tmobile wins the next contract

    I think all wireless carriers should just remove the fine print and just accurately describe the plan. If its unlimited then leave it that way, if they want to put a cap then create a separate plan for that. Of course that's in an alternate dimension so I'm not expecting it lol

    I agree!! WTF does unlimited data mean anyway!
    I guess ATT and Apple will be arguing about what the word "is" means ...?

    Definitions of unlimited on the Web:

    * having no limits in range or scope; "to start with a theory of unlimited freedom is to end up with unlimited despotism"- Philip Rahv; "the limitless reaches of outer space"
    * outright: without reservation or exception
    Hope they lose the case. Its just plain deceiving to have someone spend $500-800 on device, and get ripped off like this. Same with the iphone plans.

    I don't agree with everyone talking about if you go over 2gigs you aren't using your iDevice like it's meant to be used. I do though think it is really easy to go over. Last month I had just over 11gigs of data used. Hey I like movies and t.v. shows. Don't have time to watch at home and love playing with all sorts of themes and cydia apps. So I am constantly on my iPhone and over 3G (Work wifi is a hit and miss throughout the building).

    I cant stand this new "grandfathered" term AT&T uses now! It's such a scam, AT&T knows that if it would have changed Unlimited on everyone there would have been a riot! So they are doing it slowly, if you change anything in your plan use loose the unlimit. Who does that!? At the moment me and my wife decided that 550 combine talk is not enough, guess what, I'm suck with 550 for 2 years. If I upgrade to more minutes, I get my unlimited taken away!! Lol... What a joke. Grrrrrrrr

    I too disagree with the statement about people who use less than 2gb a mth are using there phone wrong, I usually chime in at about 1gb myself. And I'm constantly using my phone for (same as you) checking news, reading about new technoloyy, messing with new stuff in cydia (hll I probably use more then 2gb a mth just on cydia refreshing lol), but 90% of the time I'm on wifi, so even tho I'm 'grandfathered in, it's not a big deal for me.

    With all that said I do believe the way AT&T suddenly changed the data plan is bullshyt.

    I'll have to agree. I think they should sue them. I also think they should be sued for unfair pricing.
    Smartphone data plan 200mb for 15.00.
    iPad data plan 250mb for 15.00.

    Is AT&T claiming the data on a smartphone is more expensive than on the iPad? Last I checked they all use the same network for data. So how is it iPad owners get 50mb more a month for the same price? AT&T is a bunch of crooks, price gouging their customers.
    If I can't mod it...I don't want it.

    If the suit is successful it will only apply to those who ordered before the change in plans.

    Lol, you are leaving out the main reasons for your high bandwidth usage. News releases, standard safari, stocks get you nowhere near that type of data usage.

    Which would be? I didnt sign up for the tethering option (plus I wasnt even asked if I wanted it when I got my iphone which i found odd,,,maybe because I was at apple and not ATT)... I just checked my data and it says 768mb... I dont know how they calculate data used between the apps, safari and other features. Does data over wifi networks calculate into my already high MB usage? If it does then that might be the main reason I, as you put it, was "leaving out". But in all honesty, I am always on my damn phone in fact my buddies said they were going to have an intervention for me and seen of IA (iPhone's Anonymous) lol...

    Plus, if the wifi part is the reason for the MB usage, then that makes senese because I was trying to figure out yesterday if it was just that the new iPhone uses much more data for season as compared to my previous 3G model or if I really am using that much data, plus I had tethering on my 3g and I dont remember using this much data even though I never used the tether option much at all....Thank god I got to keep my unlimited data plan and wasnt forced into the new school options because I would be SOL really fast via my data allotment and forced to pay the fees.




    Edit** Wait a tick... I think I just got what you were alluding to in your post...you were alluding to porn im assuming....lol.....

    ^ Maybe because Apple and AT&T are keeping track of you on the new iPhone, thats the reason of the data usage!!...lol Wouldnt put it past them to do something just to raise the usage of your traffic. Some people should get together and test the theory.

    Good to hear! I don't see why AT&T can't keep around the $30 Unlimited plan. Having smaller plans will help reduce bandwidth, and make some of your customers happy. Rather then just making a bunch of them mad.
