WE WANT UNLIMITED DATA!

WE WANT UNLIMITED DATA!

I really don't understand why At&t did this; going from Unlimited to now 2GB is really messing with some peoples bills. Since I've had the iPhone I have already used up all of my 2GB of data and now I am paying the overage fee's. I hardly do anymore web browsing than the average person and I check my email a few times a day and use a few apps and its DRAINING my usage so much. I loved having unlimited because it just let you be free to use your data whenever and how much you wanted. Now I'm almost afraid to use my data plan because I don't want to over use it, its actually starting to create a burden on me because it was just so much more simple to have the unlimited data. Every other network has it and At&t is the only to do without it.. WHY? I just don't get it, I mean I am willing to pay $5 even $10 dollars more a month to have unlimited. This makes no sense to me. GIVE BACK THE UNLIMITED DATA!!!

It's easy to explain.  Bandwith is a limited resource and there are a few users who use extaordinary amounts  of data on AT&T's network which causes problems for many other users.  AT&T would appear to want to discourange or at least charge more for users who use more than 2GB per month.  In effect they may not really find you to be a desireable customer unless you are willing to pay the new fees or cut back on your data use.  What AT&T has started will spread.  Other carriers are looking at this very closely.

It's not the customer's fault. If AT&T didn't want people to have "Unlimited" Data then they shouldn't have created an Unlimited Data Plan for the iPhone users.

Not quite sure where "fault" comes in to it.  AT&T has decided to phase out their unlimited data plans, and is doing it by no longer offering them to new customers.

If you ask me, this is simply AT&T shooting themselves (again, again, again, and again) in the foot.  With Sprint and their EVO with unlimited data and Verizon with the Droid Incredible (again with unlimited data) it seems that AT&T want to alienate their customer base.


where are you seeing 30.00?

 

Verizon is 39.99 gor 250MB + 0.10 per MB for overage or 59.99 for 5GB + 0.05 for per MB for overage

ATT is 35.00 for 200MB + 0.10 per MB over or 60.00 for 5GB + 0.05 per MB for overage


 

Is that for aircards or what?

 

I pay $39.99 for the 450 minute plan, $30 for iPhone Unlimited Data Plan, and $15 for 1500 text messages.  In total $97.03 a month.  Oh poo, this month's payment includes the one-time $18 upgrade fee so monthly is about $79.


that is for aircards, which is what you referenced (see the highighted text in your message)

/rofl love the circular logic there, not that it makes any sense, but good try

 

kind of like saying it is not my fault that I was speeding, the manufacturer of my Bugatti Veyron should not have put a 1001 horsepower engine in it so it can be the faast production card in the world

And gasoline used to cost $0.32 per gallon (not $3.20 per gallon like it is now).  I highly doubt you will see any oil company start selling their gasoline for that low price any more, and similarly, I highly doubt you will see AT&T start selling their data plans for the low price any more.

Re: WE WANT UNLIMITED DATA!

still don't know why your complaining. verizon is going tiered and sprint won't be far behind when 4g rolls out. They already have an additional fee for 4g. Your complaining about unlimited data but the fact is there was never unlimited data. Hit the 5g mark and your account is flagged as it is with other carriers. Cable companies do the same thing. Unlimited is limited with benefits. If your tying up 5gigs a month on 3g with no router use then its because of people like you why the data system changed. You abuse what you have then complain when your caught.
