Now during the weekends I usually consume data by using a few more apps on the go like maps, facebook, mail, etc. I might be at the beach, mall, theaters, restaurant, etc. I could be looking for directions for a new party, club, or strip. I might want to post a picture, i dunno. At the end of the night, I will always have wifi but it's going to take a whole lot of discipline to not go over 200 mb.

^ If you order the iPad 3G before the 7th you can get unlimited you know...
06-04-2010, 10:53 PM #25
I know but I don't need the data all the time. Would mainly need it for when we travel. So that knocks the unlimited out right there because we will only use the data plan on a need to use basis which will most likely not be every month.

Has anyone thought about the fact that we might have OS 4.0 on Monday, since all this is happening on Monday!?!?!

I would guess more of on tuesday if at all next week. What was the release date of the other OS versions? Isn't the pattern for the OSX updates on tuesdays too; well mostly?

So since I already experienced that I needed internet with it I think I am going to order the 3G so I can get unlimited.
I usually would only need it for traveling and such but if I am going to be forced to buy the 3G before the 7th to get the unlimited data I am going to take my iPad 3G every where I go.... and I will be using it as well and will let others play on it to!

Plus you travel with the seasons too right?

Why not just get the att myaccount app? It tells you all the data you've used that month so far

In Florida they should have it all fixed by the time I go back and low and behold when I got back home in Michigan we now have 3G! So now I could use the iPad 3G.
The worst thing is now I will have both iPads... and I don't need two so if I get the 3G because of all of this I will probably sell my wifi iPad...

1. I love my iPhone
2. I realize that they're advantages and disadvantages to every situation
BUT....I think I'm over At&T coupled with Apple on this win/lose strategy of theirs man. It all becomes an increasingly difficult pill to swallow as time goes by and Apple gives us innovation while AT&T give us deprivation.
Sorry about the rant, but I just think we have and continue to be put through the ringer by being iPhone citizens on AT&T. smh. Thanks for listening.....

seems like people forget that the unlimited plan with att isnt unlimited it has a 5GB cap and has been like that ever since ive had my iphone which has been around 3 years if u read ur contract it says it in there
06-04-2010, 11:24 PM #34
Correct but ATT has yet to enforce that rule though.
06-04-2010, 11:25 PM #35
^ GREAT comment Cerote! I couldn't have said it better!
06-04-2010, 11:28 PM #36
I don't thing anybody forgot. It's the fact that they've removed the option......in the interest of what? Why not instead say to the consumers we've added this tiered data pricing in the interest of our customers who use less data (thereby not being forced to pay $30 p/m for data they don't use)
But also will now be enforcing the 5GB limit on iPhone/iPad users for the same price which will include tethering.
How would that have put AT&T at a disadvantage?

sry guys i didn't mean to type that with that attitude yall are very right and i do agree with most of u i was just bringing that up lol

^ np.... I did not take it like you were being a smart a**
But you have a good point by stating it this way it would have been a polite way of putting it and I think people would have understood it better. Also they should have explained in detail their plans and put it on their site for all to read.

@thetoothfairy yeah.....I think it would have softened the blow to us "heavy"/potential "heavy" users a bit you know?
But I agree with you, unlimited is always best option to have there....especially truly unlimited. None of this kinda sorta, fine print ish.
Anyway back on on topic.....thnx for the heads up on the data calculator. New iPad users for sure will find this the most useful

sign into your AT&T account, go to the bottom right and click view past data. a bar graph will show up with your past few months of data usage. a lot easier then trying to predict your future usage. obviously new customers can't do this and current customers are grandfathered in
