    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

    they dont offer that any longer. Your only unlimited option is with Sprint.

    Why don't they offer it any longer? Sprint's network is not as good as AT&T's.

    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 ralphieboy69@att.net

    Thanks for sharing that. Apparently that works but ATT likes to yank the unlimited plan away like 2 months later. Ugh

    Not in my area it's not. I have seen up to 8 MB down on my 4s on AT&T and Verizon isn't close to that..

    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.

    I had the unlimited plan from my blackberry and I think it carried over to my iPhone.

    When it comes to data speeds VZW LTE is the fastest (4G) and AT&T's 3G is second ... But since the 4S isn't 4G or LTE ... That makes AT&T still the fastest 3G network and they really aren't that bad anymore... They have really beefed up their network

    You can use as much data as you'd like, you just have to pay for anything you use above your plan.

    Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking. Definitely not a good idea. He wanted me to mention it online.

    I wouldn't imagine telling people not to bash Sprint and then turning around and bashing another carrier would get people on your good side.

    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.

    that faster speeds isn't 3G it's HSPA+/4G.....and the only reason I bash AT&T is because I tried getting an iPhone 4S with them recently and my security deposit was $700 with decent credit and it was even $700 even with no credit

    Sprint knows it too, which is why they offer things like cheaper plans and unlimited data to attract customers.

    Sorry that you had a bad experience with getting service with AT&T. Unfortunately there are only two wireless carriers (Sprint, T-Mobile) here in the US that don't have stringent security checks with high deposits. Verizon and AT&T can be pricey for those that have a poor security rating.
