Wished you hadn't gotten rid of that unlimited AT&T data plan?

That is interesting. I am curious, however, if anyone that did give up the unlimited plan regrets it. Perhaps due to unexpected higher data usage on the iP4. Anyone have regrets? I kept my unlimited, but I have a feeling I will soon switch to 2GB or even 200mb (despite getting 20% off of unlimited or 2Gb, and not 200mb).

Now that its out on the blogosphere AT&T will certainly be looking for it. Seriously I feel a 2GB cap is a joke especially since you cannot tether to an iPad with your iPhone. Luckily for me I have the full data plan with my iPhone an decided tethering just wasn't worth it.

I've had unlimited data from the moment I had a smartphone. I don't think I've ever
even approachaed a gig. I use WiFi plenty on my iPhone and even if I didn't I don't
think I'd come close to 1 gig even.Formerly forever29

I'll NEVER let go of my unlimited plan. Although I have WiFi at the office, the 3G speeds are faster then our T1 most times. I only use WiFi when at home. I'm around 3-4GB each month for my own usage. My wife's iPhone is on WiFi 90% of the time because she's a stay at home mom so it's just easier for her to use the WiFi. I'm curious what her usage will be when she's in Florida for a week visiting her mom though. Her mom's got wireless but doesn't know how to get her iPhone on it and is too bullheaded to listen to me tell her how to do it.audit

Though the thread was targeted to those who may have gave up their unlimited data plan, this information is also helpful for those who may have recently signed up with AT&T.
I can confirm that the instructions does work. I recently purchased an iPhone 4 and was limited to the 2GB data plan. I purchased an iPhone 2G from craigslist and followed the instructions in the first post and I now have unlimited data. The only downside is I'm stuck with an iPhone 2G. However, that's a decent trade-off for unlimited data.
Thanks for the info.

I placed my iPhone 4 Sim card in the restored iPhone 2G and connected the 2G phone to iTunes. iTunes treated the phone like a new account requiring activation. It prompted me to choose the data plan (here's where you will choose the unlimited plan). A few minutes later, I received a pop-up on the 2G phone indicating the phone was activated. I returned the iPhone 4 Sim card to it's rightful owner. About 10 mins later I checked my data usage and it showed I used xxx of unlimited data. By morning, AT&T sent me a message indicating that I did not have the correct data plan for my phone and moved me from what I assume was the iPhone non-3G unlimited data plan to the iPhone 3G unlimited data plan.
The entire process was much simpler than anticipated.

I just went from an unlimited BlackBerry plan to the iPhone. I was very surprised that AT&T allowed me to transfer unlimited plan to the iPhone but I'm sure glad they did. I changed all the other BlackBerry users in the family to the cheapest data plan since none of them even come close to the data limit.
