What if I want unlimited data on AT&T?
I'm a new customer and what if 4GB of data is not enough? Is there anyway to get any sort of unlimited smartphone plan from AT&T? I'm not necessarily looking for the old $30/mo unlimited plan that they axed last year. But has anyone had any luck in calling AT&T up and having them switch you from the 2GB plan to the unlimited plan? Switching to Sprint is not an option as I don't want slow CDMA unlimited data. I want unlimited HSPA+ data. Thanks

Because that's the way it is. They have had some issues with network usage (YMMV) and they started the caps. Just forget about and go to Sprint if you want unlimited. If you refuse to use Sprint, AT&T won't give unlimited and you're stuck like chuck. The decision is yours. If you want, you can email Ralph De La Vega at firstname.lastname@example.org

don't bash sprint okay at&t sucks dropped calls, shi*tty service and expensive plans plus sprint is releasing EVDO Advanced and it will be faster than Verizon's iPhone..... but according to head to head speed tests the Verizon iPhone is faster than AT& T's

honestly, i don't think you have to worry about going over 2GB [much less 4GB] unless you don't have wifi at home. just don't watch netflix on a car ride, and you'll be fine.
i am on sprint right now [my area for some reason isn't experiencing slow data speeds] and i haven't hit 1GB yet...and i'm constantly playing songs on youtube and pandora while driving and filming dance videos. realistically 4GB is more than enough.

Also i have only seen one instance of a Verizon 4S beating an At&t 4S.
On average At&t has out performed the others and it should be.
At&t's 3G is faster than Sprint or Verizon, and the additional 14.4 mbps should increase it that much more.
