Class Action Lawsuit Against Apple & AT&T Over 3G Data Plan
Well looks like the big boys (lawyers) are behind iPad owners who feel that Apple and AT&T baited them into buying the iPad 3G with the promise of the unlimited data plans. Little old me is included in this craziness. On June 9 against Apple and AT&T over the discontinued unlimited-data plan for the iPad 3G has been amended and re-filed to include additional iPad 3G customers.
One of the lawsuits main contentions involves AT&T and Apple’s claim that iPad 3G customers could easily opt-in and opt-out of an unlimited data connection on the iPad 3G without any penalty.
We all know AT&T's new data plans since they changed them on June 7th so I won't go into that again however I just got the email conformation that I bought my iPad 3G in time and I am now on the unlimited plan. Apple and AT&T both had to approve this making sure I bought it before June 7th.
As usual Apple and AT&T have not commented on the class-action lawsuit or its implications. It's possible that if a jury finds the case in favor of the plaintiffs, that AT&T may be forced to bring back the unlimited data plan as an option. Years from now, when the litigation of the case is over, the iPad 3G will probably be a historic curiosity, replaced by another Apple device using different wireless technology.
The case, filed in the United States District Court in San Jose, Calif., represents customers from several different states. The suit also says that AT&T was abrupt in its changes, giving customers less than a week’s notice that the data plan would be eliminated.

ATT should just learn to call it unlimted but place a cap. Their stupid blatant gestapo like gouging of customers isn't the way to do it IMHO. Just tell the people what they want to hear. If most people don't go over 2 gigs then what the **** was the problem ******bags?!

umm, they said you could get Unlimited data UNTIL June 7th or 8th, when ever WWDC was.. It was stated in the keynote and was on apples website...
Had people read, they wouldn't need to sue over something that was disclosed...

I have an iPhone plan but hardly ever use the phone part of it. I wonder if I can buy an iPad and transfer my iPhone line to an iPod line and still keep the unlimited data?

There is no contract for the iPad. They can offer whatever they want . If they say it's 25 bucks a month for 2 gig. Then sorry bout your luck. Who uses more than 2 gigs on an iPad anyway. At home wi fi. Walking around Iphone.

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

This is a good thing! I hope apple and AT&T Lose in court! The data cap is a scam for more money! Duh, all you people that think AT&T is being so nice and doing you all a favor with this new data plan need to wake up! 200mb for $15 and if you go over that they give you another 200mb for another $15. Um, ya.... That's $30 for 800mb, how much was unlimited again? Right!

Now can we also have one for iPhone, and the defect in the antenna, and Apple acting like Big Brother to all it's customers by taking info to their whereabouts.
