Unlimited Data Plans

According to ATT, the unlimited data plan was to expensive for some people and very few would use that much data.  Hence why they have the 2GB plan, but I feel they did that to make more money.  Do you guys think 2GB will be enough space per month?  

 

Can you please give feedback on your past data usage?

 

Thanks

Re: Unlimited Data Plans

Remember data consumption will increase as smart phones get "smarter.". Consider the new Netflix app.

But WEDNESDAY, your usage just like mine will be and as well as everyone else's are different. LOL! :smileytongue:  But I do appreciate your input. =)  Also, 2MB one month and 28MB another month is a HUGE swing, don't you think?

 

Yes it is that is because I wrote that wrong. The 2,799,755KB should translate to 2.8 MB not what I wrote 28MB. I did not out in the decimal point. Thank you for catching that. I will edit that post.

Data will "always" increase.  If someone says they have reduced their data, I would be surprised.  With more and more apps, places to go websites to see and of course TMZ for the rest of the world!  It's bound to increase.

 

Just my $0.02.

Unless you repvious phone was a smartphone it would not have mattered. Only users that had a smartphone with unlimited data are able to retain the unlimited smartphone data plan - as long as they continue to use a smartphone or do not change to another plan

Re: Unlimited Data Plans

Totally agree with you on the new Netflix app, I will be using it on my 1 hour (each way) bus commute to watch some streaming movies, bet that will be a heavy consumer of data. So for now I will hold onto my unlimited data plan on my 3GS untill I can check my data usage after using the Netflix app for a couple of months.

 

Hope this helps...

To you it might translate to those values but to everyone else here's how it works:

 

1,024Bytes = 1KB

1,024KB = 1MB

1,024MB = 1GB

 

2,799,755KB = 2.67GB (more than either of the new data plans)

 

Either you included "KB" when you shouldn't have or you'd better keep the unlimited data plan.
