Now what is a possibility is if you switched over to LTE, when that becomes available, you get forced to a tiered plan. Then again you could transfer your unlimited to HSPA+ plans so maybe not...

If AT&T considers unlimited data a contract feature, then yes, we could all walk (where are we gonna go?). If it is considered an add-on (we are paying extra fees for data, unlimited or otherwise), I'd say it would not constitute an adverse material breach of the contract. We can add/remove data plans or change plans at will. (Yeah, I know the part about a smartphone and a mandatory data plan, but we can pick any one we want, or downgrade to a non-smartphone and drop data altogether, without any impact on our contract status.)
But either way, I don't see AT&T changing it anytime soon.
But I'm not a lawyer, don't play one on TV and didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, so I could be wrong.

This is total BS. I spoke to someone at the AT&T Specialist dept (whatever that is) over the weekend and told me that they are working to correct this with more bandwidth, towers, backbone ect... I told them I didn't believe that hogwash.
The disturbing part is that there is no way for AT&T to prove you are in the 5%. What's even more BS is that 2GB plan subscribers are the base of that calculation. So when you go over 2GB on an Unlimited plan, you are automatically red-flagged. It was designed to fail your Unlimited plan from the get go.
This IS a cardinal change to your plan.

This month I've used 2.4GB on my unlimited plan and never got a text or anything. But I went over 2GB with about 5 days left in my billing cycle. I didn't hit 2GB within 2 days of my billing cycle. I have no problem with the throttling but I wish it was like T-Mobile's. Everyone should be throttled after reaching 5GB. If you use more than that than you deserve to be throttled because obviously your streaming netflix. They have to do this in order to make sure everyone has good speeds. People need to get on WIFI more, and I hate the ones that say I don't have it everywhere because practically everywhere has WIFI nowadays.

AT&T Sending Data Warnings At 2GB
I Just received the famous free message from AT&T: "Your data use this month places you in the to 5% of users. Use Wi-Fi to help avoid reduced speeds." Funny thing is I am only at about 2GB of data. There have been previous months where I have used in excess of 3GB and never got the warning before. Does this mean that AT&T is lowering the "imaginary" cap on customers of grandfarthered unlinited data plans.

Data caps do not work. The problem is not people who use a lot of data, it's that a lot people tend to use it at the same time. There is no network congestion when I'm using my iPhone late at night/early morning. See the article at Boing Boing.

Why are people whining so much? You ARE getting unlimited data...it's just not all at the same speed. Maybe you should take the throttling as a lesson and use Wifi more, for example, or use your phone less. And even if you do go over 2.0 GB or whatever, you still have data access, no? It's not like AT&T removes that completely.

AT&T should offer the iPhone with NO data plan because 4 out 5 iPhones on my plan use less then 200mb. So this is proof that AT&T is robbing their customers.
