So I have seen at&t new add about only 10 bucks a month for unlimited data.
I called them up and they told that is only for non smart phones.
Why can we not do something for a family that uses smart phones?
Come that is all I'm asking unlimited data plan for everyone even smart phones.
I wouldn't care if it cost like 80 bucks a month.

There is no family data plan, period. Even the family data unlimited plan for non-smartphones is a misnomer. It's a $5 discount on the normal $15 data plan for non-smartphones, and it's still a per-line charge. If you have 5 phones, that 5x$10, or $50, per month.
There is no corresponding discount for smartphones, and there is no longer a smartphone unlimited data plan. I wouldn't count on it coming back, and if it does it sure as heck won't be $80 for coverage on all lines on a family plan.

I wouldn't expect you to see an unlimited data plan offered again anytime soon from AT&T. It actually costs AT&T more to provide you the data bandwidth you're using than they are charging. Bring in unlimited and people start tethering (sanctioned or not) and their data costs skyrocket. Now you have H+ and 4G on the way and you're not likely to see unlimited data return for smartphones, at least not anytime soon. I would expect most carriers will follow suit soon.

I still have the unlimited data plan on my phone and a second line has the 2G dta plan. Glad to say, the second line does a lot of surfing, viewing clips, etc and havent gone over that limit.
