I just recently picked up an Iphone and to be honest the only reason i'm an ATT customer is because they have it, in my area there are so many dead spots around my house, but really until that situation changes i'm stuck with them. if i can switch in the future i'll pay the termination fee with no hesitation.

Just to clarify: my home data connection sees about 500GB down and 70GB up each month, so I'm familiar with heavy data usage, but that's not what I've been using the iPhone for.

As a former AT&T U-Verse Employee I'll just say that this isn't the first area where AT&T has cut corners (in reference to the topic building infastructure).

God; you guys need to stop ******** about this. I'm tired of hearing about everyone complaining about these restrictions that they might invoke.
Read and pay attention.
AT&T offers a "unlimited" data plan for the iPhone. Which allows us iPhone users the ability to use the phone for pretty much anything. Web browsing, email, music, applications.
AT&T charges it's customer $60 a month for 5GB laptop connect card plan. Which allows those users the ability to use their laptops for pretty much anything.
Where is it fair that we get unlimited data for $30, and people with laptop connect cards have to pay double, and they don't get unlimited.
Now; look at the other carriers out there. Verizon for example. The suppose super network and what everyone wants the iPhone to switch over to.
Go to their website and build a plan that is comparable to the one you have on AT&T. I did it, and I would be paying over $50 more a month then I am with AT&T, and that's without unlimited texting, because they don't offer it (at least it wasn't an option when I was trying to build a plan). Plus, the unlimited data is $15 more a month. AND; Verizon restricts it's users on laptop connect cards the same way that At&t does. And trust me, Verizon is more money hungry then AT&T is, so you better beleive that when, and if the iPhone goes to Verizon, they WILL NOT have an unlimited data plan; you WILL be paying a LIMITED plan.
And finally, WHO THE HELL IS GOING TO USE 5GB A MONTH! What are you people doing with your iPhones that is going to use more then 5GB in a month!
And here's a message out to these losers that tried to bring down AT&T; your morons. You can't possibly bring down an entire network. I am glad they failed, because when, and god I hope, Verizon gets the iPhone, it will be just as bad as it is with AT&T. There is a lot of network usage with iPhone users. Thus, why Apple chose AT&T for the US.
Apple would not have chosen AT&T if it wasn't able to do it. So switch to Verizon, switch to a phone carrier that has slower 3G speeds, and less overall coverage. Because when Verizon says that it has more 3G Coverage then AT&T; they are wrong. Verizon's 3G speed is the same speed at AT&T's edge. Only Verizon's V-Cast network is the same speed as AT&T's 3G.
Do your research before coming online to ***** about something you know nothing about.
Flame all you want, I won't be reading any responses.

When/If Verizon gets the iPhone it will most likely be on their new LTE network, and limiting LTE, an extremely high bandwidth network is simply nonsense.

Network was unaffected... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Great job, queers... Great job. Another successful endeavor by the anti-ATT idiots. Can we call it "Operation Choked-on-****" now?
EDIT: Wish I could 'Thanks' myself.

But I guess people will be complaining once they see for themselves that the iPhone on ATT is not that bad.....Other carriers would have the same or MORE problems with the amount of People and data being used from the iPhone.
