Im in a pickle... I running a 2g iPhone on t-mobile and for the last 2 months I've used about 440mb. I'm thinking of moving over to AT&T soon for the 4g so I can use 3g, so I think what I use a month will go up. If I sign up today with AT&T can I get the unlimited and keep it when I get the 4g?

What I find interesting is that if you have an iPhone (jailbroken) or even not, why bother paying extra for a 3G iPad? You can simply tether to your phone. If you don't have a jailbroken one you can just grab the tethering and it's still cheaper than the proposed AT&T plan. Or am I missing something? I mean how often are you not in possession of both?

The simple fact that they charge me more the more I use I do not like. There is absolutely no reason anyone should consider this to be good, or welcome it. I dont know a single person who uses less than 2GB a month on a iPhone, including a 63 year old coworker. The problem is, this is only the beginning, it wont get better.

Look at the copy of the bill I posted, I use 21GB myself an the other line i have uses 8gb a month...I don't see no 5gb cap there
But I think Att is doing this since the iPhone is going on other carriers soon...so it's ooovvvveeeerrrrrr lol[IMG]http://img829.imageshack.us/img829/9703/modu.gif[/IMG]

As painfully flawed my iPhone 3GS is now that im used to the epic iPad battery life/display/speed, I would keep my current iPhone if they made me get a new 2GB cap data plan with the iPhone HD. To be honest, the single most important thing my iPhone does is provide me with 'unlimited' fast enough internet, almost everywhere I ever go. A 2GB cap makes the iPhone SIGNIFICANTLY less desirable to me.

Ok I have read most of the replies but not all of them. Right now it is $30 a month for unlimited data. The most I have used was 450 MB in 1 month when our internet was down I tethered to the PC with PDAnet. I can save 15 dollars by dropping to the 200 Meg plan and pay $01 extra per gig, what if I only used 50 extra megs? would it be an extra 50 cents? Or will you get charged the entire 10 dollars for the gig? I would call ATT and ask but I dont want to mention tethering while jailbroken to them!
If I decided to tether again and go crazy with PDAnet or something 3rd party will my "unlimited" plan still be in effect?

I'm watching you AT&T!

I would find someone to borrow a 3G iPhone from, or maybie find one cheap right away. Start a new plan using the iPhone 3G you paid for, and upgrade when the iPhone HD comes out at normal price. Sell the iPhone 3G, and now you have a unlimited plan for as long as they let us keep it, at minimal cost.
Telling people they no longer have unlimited internet, and they pay if they use too much is going to scare a lot of people into finding ways to not use 3G. 2GB is a terribly low limit. I can understand a 5GB cap, that would cover most people. But 2GB? My friend used 6GB on his iPad 3G, and he barely uses it! Its not jailbroken, he dosent tether, he isnt trying to use lots of data...
If I were looking at a iPad 3G with the choices of 200MB or 2GB, I would walk away.

Here goes ATT loosing customers how ****** of a company you must be to relieve stress of your network DID the network talk to them about being stressed stupid ATT, spend more money of making your internet sophisticated than you wont say stupid things like relieve stress. Tell your network to go see psychiatrist or something, stupid duche bags. And they need to know this is not the stone age. Am keeping my 3GS and my slow Edge from T-Mobile where I have unlimited internet.

Thank you z3r01 for posting your usage, now i don't feel guilty at all.
I'll definitely be keeping my contract just the way it is. Thankfully though my work is getting free ATT wifi this month so I can just get everything off of it, I'll have to check and see how my bandwidth usage is affected then. Can we sell ATT accounts?

EDGE MIGHT BE USELESS TO YOU BUT I FIND IT VERY USEFUL ON MY 3GS IT WORKS JUST FAST ENOUGH FORM ME FOR THE THINGS I NEED. BUT THAN AGAIN LAPTOPS AND WIFI'S ARE DESIGNED FOR HEAVY DUTY WORK YOU WANT YOUR IPHONE TO DO.
SPEND MORE TIME UNDER SIGNALS OF WIFI IT'LL BE MUCH HELPFUL TO YOU THAN MAKE SOMEBODY RICH PAYING FOR NOTHING, LIKE $25 FOR 2GB? R THEY SEROUS?
USE BOOST MOBILE GET URSELF BLACKBERRY THAN FOR $60 UNLIMITED EVERYTHING a MONTH YOU CAN KILL UR BLACKBERRY ASSIGNING IT HEAVY DUTY WORK, THAN SEE IF YOU WANT IPHONE WITH USELESS EDGE OR BOOST WITH THEY IDEN AND CDMA NEWORK.

Delusion, I have no idea what it is you are trying to say.
I like my iPhone, I like ATT. In my experience, the network is fast, reliable, and I have 3G most anywhere I go. I can make my iPhone do most anything I would need to do on a portable device.
It takes several minutes to simply check my email accounts on edge, vs 20-30 seconds on 3G. I have it set to 5 mins to 'simulate' push, so EDGE is taxed continuously checking my email, making browsing uselessly slow. Sure, I could set it to a more reasonable 15 minutes, but then i'm compromising. This is unacceptable.

Thank goodness on having unlimited still. I run about 2.75g a month.
Too bad they can't raise their cap a little more or you can't "negotiate" with someone and be like, "can my cap be X amount of gb to play the lower price since I consistently am in the Y g/month range."

I am at 3.6G as of today.

I just looked at my AT&T family plan and have not gone over 1.3GB for the time period I looked at. Of course I used 1.3 the month we finally got 3G here in Wichita Falls, TX. My family plan has 4 iPhones and I am the highest user. Two I may switch over to the 200MB plan because they don't stream music like I do; they mainly use Facebook. So I may switch those to the 200MB plan and save $30 a month. And the other iPhone goes over the 200MB mark but not even close to the 2GB plan so I may switch that one to the 2GB and save me $5. I think i will just keep mine like it is cause when the new iPhone HD comes out I am sure I will use it more than my 3G.
