    Default 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.

    Assuming you have a 30 minute commute (1 hour a day) and you work/drive it EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE MONTH and every minute you spend in it has you streaming music non-stop, you still don't go over the quota and gives you about 2.5 hours worth of streaming video / month after adding stuff like 100webpages/day, hundreds of email a day, etc.

    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.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Okay I get your point however most people do drive everyday and not just to work. During the weekdays I sometimes drive to the gym, the pool, the park, another house, a store, the bank, and lastly back home after BK. I also work and pick up my son from school so driving for an hour on a weekday is typical. (I guess I will need to switch to normal radio from time to time.)

    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.

I could consume data by checking or going to the beach, mall, theaters, restaurant, etc. I could be looking for directions for a new party, club, or strip. At the end of the night sure I will always have wifi but it's going to take a whole lot of discipline to not go over 200 mb.
    Then the unlimited plan that you will be grandfathered into will be perfect. I agree though with the idea of new customers not having the option though. Actually after this announcement I decided not to get a iPad 3G for my birthday because it won't have unlimited plan. And my GF loves the ABC app and wants it for car rides anywhere. Looks like I will stick with my wifi iPad.

    I stream the music stored on my iPhone to my car radio if I do listen to it in the car. Otherwise normal radio is fine by me if I listen to it at all.

    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.

    AS tooth said, and ATT's press release, and their facebook page they say that the grandfathered plan applies to those that upgrade to the new iPhone. Meaning they get to keep it even when they are upgrading the phone and basically resigning the same contract they have. You can carry the same exact contract for many years. I did. I had a great one that went out the door a long time ago but everytime I would upgrade my phone it would just resign that same exact plan/contract. I only lost it when I needed to add some lines and get some more mins.

    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.

    Verizon makes AT&T look like the most generous philanthropist, have fun with them. Off the top of my head:

    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

    Same, but screw it. With T-mobile I may not get 3G, but I can still tether my computer to my iphone and get online when I need to, so who cares, my boyfriend has ATT&T and his 3G coverage is spotty so he's on edge a lot anyway, plus I only pay about 2/3 as much for my unlimited data/text as AT&T customers...

    I think AT&T pulling the plug on its unlimited service is crap, it's like those stories you hear about insurance companies dropping customers because they get sick...oh I'm sorry you offered me a service, and I paid for it and actually used it like I'm supposed to be able to.
