I don't understand the complaints... If you are one of the people who have gotten use to unlimited data, then you can keep it. This only affects new users. I could see people getting pissed if they changed all our unlimited plans to 2GB plans, but they aren't.

Hey OP, feel free to add these points to your smear OP:
-this change will LOWER THE BILL TO OVER 90% OF IPHONE USERS
-VZW, the other company people seem to want the iPhone in, also charges a "premium" for tethering. In fact, paying extra for tethering on smartphone plans has been a standard in US for years. YEARS.
- The reception on this very forum has been positive since people have taken the whole 2 minutes to check their usage and see that gosh darn it that new 2GB is a pretty good spot that saves money to most "power users" and saves even more money to those that are in wifi heavy areas and use less than the now cheapest tier.
- the ONLY people that will negatively be affected by this make up a grand total of TWO PERCENT of all iPhone users. Two. That's a 2.
Except no it won't since AT&T isn't forcing you to switch to these plans.
I love this site to death but these sensasionalist articles are the kind of garbage I expect to read in some kids blog, not MMI.

I hope you realize that is measured in MB (megabyte) not GB. You have not even come close to using to 2GB.

The only people who really have a legitimate beef here are people that want to tether. If you already have an iphone on unlimited data, you can keep unlimited data. And you can also upgrade to the new iphone and keep your unlimited data. So unless you want to tether, none of this in any way affects you.
Tethering on the other hand is where the bs comes in. In order to tether, you have to pick one of the new plans and pay $20 for the right to tether. No extra data allowance is given and they take away your unlimited data. That's what is bullsh*t. The AT&T guy was quoted saying that tetherers use more data so they get charged more. Well no sh*t, but if you're going to charge them more, you have to give them more data. $20 just for the right with no extra data is horsesh*t. You can't say they use more data so we are going to charge them more, but not give them any more data.

Everyone does realize this isn't just iPhone data plans. This is for all smartphones.
That said I wonder if we still get unlimited visual voicemail?

This is true...you can upgrade your phone a million times so long as you don't change your phone plan. ATT customer service manager I spoke with confirmed this...keep you plan and don't change it and your unlimited data stays. Change your plan and loose it. Upgrading to different phones doesn't matter or change your unlimited data...
