AT&T Data Calculator - You Might Need It!
With AT&T changing their data plans you might need this! And its unbelievable that we would even have to think of using such a thing! I thought I should post this so everyone knows of it. Its really easy to use. Just slide the sliders for each thing you do in a day or month.
For instance if you sent 20 email message out in one day and received 30 you would slide the slider to 50 in a day for emails sent/received in one day with no attachments.
They have many categories that one would do in a day such as email, emails with photos, emails sent with attachments, hours of streaming music, web pages viewed, apps/games/songs downloaded, social media posts with photos uploaded and minutes of streaming video.
Say you streamed music for 2.5 hours according to their calculator you would use 2.15 GB of data.
So if you are one that doesn't keep your unlimited data plan you better bookmark this. And if you go over you can tell them that you used their data calculator!

From my past months I am good on even using the 15$ plan. I generally have wifi in the areas that I have time to browse in. So this is going to save me money.

So is this thing bogus or just not working correctly... Setting the video option to Month then changing the bar until it reaches its full 2gig, it shows that i can play video for 1050 minutes, which is 17.5 hours. What is their standard of video they use to come up with these numbers?
Edit: no, sod that.. Found my answer scrolling down a bit more. Apparently they judge this off youtube videos.

What is the lowest minute package to go with the $15 data plan? I may need to order movie tickets and restaurant via the apps.

This is pretty damn awesome. Wish they had a weekly option but I guess I can just x4 and go with monthly and gives me the same idea.
1. They charge $3 for Visual Voicemail
2. They charge as much as AT&T for bring able to tether
3. You can't do voice and data at the same time.
4. They were the first to raise the ETF on smartphones to $325.
5. If you go to dictionary.com and search for "nickle and diming" it re-directs you to Verizon's website.

I guess everyone herE is a new customer then (not) stop complaining until they say you are not grandfathered only the new people get screwed. Anyway we knew it was only a matter of time before at&t would not be able to handle the strain of all this data. And all the people who want to jump go ahead i'll push you more room for the rest of us.IF I HELPED PLEASE HIT THANKS

Now take into account the fact that you don't work every day, don't drive an hour every day, spend some time at home / work / mall where there's a good change you'll be near Wifi and you actual data usage "zones" decrease.

Funny, today I spoke to the AT&T rep to ask about the new iPhone and he said "are you sure, you do know about the upcoming data package? You know, if you wait longer ur going to get less data. who's your carrier...." I was shocked, it's like he was trying to tell me something. I felt like he didn't want me to get the new iPhone.

They do this just when the new iPhone is coming out with the new video chat and multitasking! With multitasking being the norm on the iPhone now AND the new video chat, I think we will be using more data than we think! That is why, I believe, they are now doing this to us!

^ When I talked to At&t twice today about all of this they told me if you upgrade your phone when the new one comes out it will not effect your data plan.

All my friends have wifi. Not sure where I would be hanging with friends that doesn't have wifi. Have you seen the cost of having a beer at a bar compared to just buying a case or two to share while hanging out at a house with all your freinds. Plus having a good ol' BBQ?
As mention above someone posted that the calclator said 17.5 hours of youtube vid. Don't think I would be showing that much youtube vids to my friends while hanging out. If we find intersting stuff we normally just email it to each other.
