AT&T ditching data plans!

[ Edited ]

Just got a text message from AT&T:

  On 4/18 data packages and auto renew will only be available with monthly plans.  Pls move to monthly plan if you want 2 continue data package use.

 

 this really stinks!  I have been using pay as you go for about 10 years now.  not sure what I will do, probably just go without data.  And their per kb data cost is horrible.  If they reduced it by a factor of 10 (or even 5) the rate would be more reasonable.

I should be allowed to get a refund of my prepaid balance over this.  I paid in advance for a service they arbitrarily decided to eliminate.

A lot of us are in the same boat. I bought a new AT&T branded Samsung Focus two months ago for $230 and $105 to my prepaid account. I spent $25 one month ago on data. I lost 500MB data, and $25 for one monthly payment, and $35 to donations, and $250 for a new T-Mobile branded Nokia Lumia, and the hassle involved with changing phones and porting my number (another $20 to Google Voice).

 

No, you are NOT alone, and something really needs to be done in my opinion. I guess we can vote with our feet and be sure to let anyone and everyone know how they treat their paying customers.   

 

Edit: Oh, the good news is, I'm getting great 4G coverage with TMO when I only had 3G with them.
