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

    ... or new to AT&T and "can't get" one?

    There's hope - at least according to this tweet that I received from @branden3112:

    How To Still Get Unlimited Data on AT&T on the iPhone How To Still Get Unlimited Data on AT&T on the iPhone - Branden Flasch won't be long before ATT figures it out and fixes or converts it back to proper plan

    i imagine AT&T will also still charge for any overages over the original plan as well

    will be fun to watch the fallout from this

    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).

    Switched to the 2GB as soon as it became an option and haven't looked back. With free wifi everywhere these days, I find it very hard to go over that limit.

    The only way I'll drop my unlimited data, is if I consistty go under 2gb/month for a period of time. Seeing as how right now half way through the month, I am at 1.2 gb I probably wont be on the 2gb plan anytime soon!

    I'm holding out for the netflix app. Let's see the data usage then. Now if the app let's you cash the flix for a few days that's a different story. Streaming at home and watching on the go? Sounds good to me.

    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.

    ...and you saved a measly $5 a month for your efforts or more should you go over by chance. I don't think $5 a month savings is worth giving up my unlimited plan.

    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.

    I wholeheartedly agree.

    Even if I don't come close to the 2GB threshold, a $5 savings is not enough to make me want to switch from the unlimited plan.

    This is exactly how I feel about it. I really think I could stay under 2GB with wireless at home and work and everywhere in between but you never know.

    I've only had my iPhone 4 for 10 days, and I'm already at about 1 GB usage...that extrapolates to about 3 GB for the month...glad I kept my unlimited plan!

    Yes...wifi usage does not count against your data usage limits.

    I wonder if AT&T doesn't count their partners into your data count.

    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.

    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.

    So you used this method recently? I would need to use a 2g, and then could move to a newer iphone correct? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Yes, the prescribed method was used this week and it took less than an hour for the change to take effect.

    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.
