Did you ever hear anything from anyone privately?

 

I'm new to AT&T, 8 days in and already at 75% of my 3G plan. I came from Sprint, unlimited data. Even if slow at least I didn't have to worry about going over.

 

Getting desparate... wishing us both luck!

Unlimited data plans were done away with a few years ago, September 2009 if I remember correctly. Those customers who had unlimited plans have been allowed to keep them as long as they don't switch to one of the tiered plans or drop data completely. Once it's gone, it doesn't come back. And from what I've read, those of us who still have unlimited plans may soon be losing them at our next upgrade.

 

There is no option for unlimited data on a new line or for an upgrade from a feature phone.
