Re: Unlimited Data question
I talked with a CS rep form AT&T yesterday. They are no longer offering unlimited data plans on any devices. If you are "grandfathered" in with an unlimited plan, that will not change. If you have a "family plan" you can have up to 5 devices on the plan. This will not take away your unlimited plan on your phone. However, they seem to be really pushing the "Mobile Share" plans in which you can have up to 10 devices but they all share from one data pool, and it is NOT unlimited.
We currently already have 5 phones on our plan, two with grandfathered unlimited plans. If I end up getting an LTE iPad mini I will probably do the month-to-month plan as a separate plan from our phones. I may also be able to barter for a better deal by being free to shop around with the other providers. I think this is the best option for us.
Give CS a call and ask them some "what if" questions. I'm a firm believer that having good information leads to making better decisions!
