    I've always heard that the unlimited was capped around 3 gigs, for the mobile devices. I've never come anywhere close on my iPhone so I'm not really sure.

    Why would they do such a thing? I just ordered an iPad 3G because I wanted unlimited access to the 3G.....:-(

    Well, 2GB might be enough for what I'm gonna do with it anyway...hopefully.

    iow - they want to cut back on streaming content.

    Means no downloading of HD movies via 3G on your iPad.

    This is one of those times that makes me feel like they're snakes in the grass.

    And I didn't buy the 3G version.

    This is actually horrible. I see with the iPhone people might be careful and not go over 2GB. But the iPad is a Media Consumption Device. WTH AT&T??

    Unacceptable!

    And I do have a 3G iPad. I will probably not go over the 2GB But I still feel ripped off!

    That does not seem like a good thing at all AT&T. What are you up to? That was one of the big selling points of the 3G iPad.

    I bought a wifi ipad because I felt that att wouldn't be able to handle the unlimited data as more ipads entered the network.

    I think the iphone limits are due to video chat that will be available with the new iphone os. At & t will not be able to handle the load without some sort of limits.

    I have a verizon mifi that I connect my ipad and iphone to when I am at a place that does not have wifi.

    I have never come close to going over 2gb on my iphone though, so I don't think the limits will affect iphone users much.

    My 3G isn't working yet, although Orange assured me it was setup. I didn't go for one of the monthly plans to start with, prefering to see how the per MB thing works out. Lucky choice since it isn't using anything until I get Orange to fix it.

    This is in the UK, so probably a completely different issue

    The only way they could expect customers to accept such a cut in usage would be to lower the monthly fee by more than only $5.00. They're allowing tethering, but for an additional $20! No thank you, AT&T!

    You can stay on your current $30.00 "unlimited" plan with no change if you want to. I don't see the big deal. Just don't switch your plan and you'll be fine.

    That's only for people who are grandfathered in, iPads are in such short supply right now especially the 3G model some people are having to wait a couple weeks to get one.

    The new data plan also effects the iPhone plans. They also are no longer offering unlimited data unless you are grandfathered in. The benefit of the change is that they are now offering a lower priced data plan for $15/month with a 200 MB limit (iPhone only) for users who don't use that much data and don't want to be forced to pay $30/month (now $25). The change is bad for people who want unlimited but are first time customers.

    I personally don't use that much data a month so I'm glad for the option of a cheaper monthly data plan on the iPhone. It is notable that they are not offering the two pricing plans on the iPad.
