I checked my data usage for the last 3 months. I used about 300 mb, 500mb and 1GB. So I seem to fluctuate higher than 250 and less than 2GB, but I haven't used my phone to teher my laptop yet like I was planning on doing. I think I'll stick to unlimited for a while and see what I use after tethering.

whoops nm found it. Out of 8 months only went over 200 mb once. This is prolly better for those who have wifi at home. I know thats why my usage isnt as high as it should be.

I guess all I need is 1 GB so this isn't that bad.

For those who are thinking about leaving...LEAVE!! Lol and since I assume your already an AT&T customer, I don't understand why you would consider leaving since it doesn't affect you.
I'm sorry, but I think some people here are idiots.

Here's my data trend (attached).
I'm a power user, I check Cydia daily and download new Cydia crap almost daily, update my 100-some AppStore apps almost daily, and tether occasionally.
I tend to hover between .5 and 1.3 GB depending what I'm doing. The months when I restored my phone or bought a new one meant a lot more data usage while I was redownloading crap.. something to keep in mind. With as heavily as I use my phone, I'm super glad ATT made this 2GB and not 1GB.. then I really would have been on the fence. Think I may have just saved ~60.00 a year.
Will agree that the 200mb plan (just like their 200 TXT plan) is total BS. It's impossible to use that little with just an email account and some web browsing.

I've use around 3 to 6gb every single month for the passed year on my 3GS and my bill amount has ALWAYS been the same. I own no computer & have no wifi, I do everything on the Iphone. My bandwidth gets this high because I use apps like sligbox and 3g un-estrictor alot for many others. I will simply buy a laptop and my solution should be solved. I don't see how people here think apply is doing them a favor, my girlfriend uses 220mb a month by just using facebook! Smart move AT&T.

Granted, not everyone pulls down 2gb a month, but going from the 5gb "unlimited" cap to this, for only 5 bucks cheeper? Come on! And who uses less than 200mb!? Seriously, they may as well get an iPod touch and a freebie phone if they're looking to save money. I know it's only for new customers, but yet again iPhone users are penalized compared to the rest of the smartphone community.

After reading this everyone is back and forth on the answers so I called AT&T my self. So here is the scoop.
If you currently have a Unlimited Data Plan NOTHING will change for you. When you upgrade to a new phone as long as you don't downgrade your plan NOTHING will change for you. The only way that you would loose the unlimited data plan is if you end your contract with AT&T or lower your plan. Cause once you loose it you will not get it back.
For most of us that are just looking to upgrade to the new phone this change will not effect use at all. Even if you can't upgrade to the new phone till a few months down the road.
Now a few people said they would change to a new data plan because its cheaper. Just A WARNING if you do that you will never get the unlimited data back.
I personally use about 2.6-3.5Gs a month. I'm upgrading to the new phone the day it comes out and the AT&T service rep assured me that even if I upgrade my phone I would still keep my unlimited data. Its just a new phone and 2 year commitment with the my current plan.
So the moral of the story is. If you have it, keep it! If you don't, getting it! Cause after the 7th you have what you have.

^that's true but keep in mind if you update to a tethering plan you will not be able to keep a unlimited data plan even if you use one now
