Next year when Sprint gets the iPhone 5,6, LTE whatever its called it will certainly have 4G and all this will be a non issue because you can use the 4G and talk and they have unlimited plans and will always have unlimited plans.. AT&T is changing because they are losing people every day due to connectivity issues and throttling.

Boy am i glad i switchto tmobile prepaid. For $30 a month i get 5GB of 4g speeds (unlimited at edge speeds), unlimited text, and 100 minutes. Plus i'm not on contact and the galaxy s2 is pretty competitive to the 4s.

Pretty much i will take my unlimited and change it to 3GB. There is no sense for me having to keep the unlmtd if they slow my speed down. Ive only used 2.14GB and they throttled me. Really what a pain.

Anyone know when these rates go into affect? I'm grandfathered into unlimited, but in the last year I have yet to go over 2 GB, so I'm about to drop down to the 2 GB plan and save me an extra $10 a month (we have two iPhones on our plan)....but if I then won't be grandfathered into the $25/month deal I'll just stick with the unlimited.
*EDIT: Whoops...should have read the whole article. I guess I need to make the change in the next few days. I'll have to call them and see if I can hold onto my $25/2GB plan or if they'll force me to change to the $30/3.

I have multiple lines on my account and I am the only one with the unlimited data. I like the idea of an extra gig for 5$. I do think that they are having a little pressure to bring back the unlimited plan because of sprint. Fingers crossed that it will return

This isn't a steal by any stretch of the imagination. These new plans are horrible for the consumer and typical AT&T price gouging.
Firstly, most users don't ever get close to using 2GB of data. AT&T knows that. It deliberately makes data plans that either provide too much or too little, and that's because that's how it makes money. If everyone used data at capacity, it'd be a huge hit on AT&T's profits. These more expensive data plans basically translate into fast cash at the cost of an almost negligibly increased pressure for them to expand and improve their networks.
Think about it.
If you're someone (like a huge swath of people out there) who just wants an iphone, plans on using it primarily through wifi, and has no desire to use much or any data on your phone, you used to be forced into paying $15/month for a service you didn't want. That a $360 fee for using an iphone over your two-year contract. With these new contracts, that's now $480!
The same applies to the 2GB data plan. A moderate amount of data usage on the iphone usually involves maybe at most 1GB. Few people use the phone constantly for video streaming and data uploading, so generally most users (not counting those who tether of course) who use their data freely without worrying about their data expenditure rarely go over 1GB. Trust me, AT&T knows this. They do market research and hire fancy consultants to crunch the numbers and figure out how they can quietly increase their profits and screw their customers. They did the same thing when they got rid of the $5/month texting plans (they realized it was too convenient for texters and would prompt people to shy away from more expensive texting plans now that most texts can be sent over the internet) and forced everyone into more expensive texting plans.
Each of these little $5 increases translate into $120 extra you have to pay over your contract to AT&T. Don't let them fool you.

I love new plans, but could someone please explain to AT&T that the definition of "Unlimited" is "unconstrained, unrestrained, unfettered". In layman terms there is NO CAP, No Maximum!! Why are they threatening loyal, long term customers with throttling down their internet speed??? That is just NOT Right. A better question is, why am I staying with a company that is punishing it's loyal long term customers? I guess its finally time to look elsewhere for a Truly Unlimited Plan.
What a shame...
