    I Don't need unlimited minutes, I have plenty of rollover minutes. Now if AT&T wants to lower the price on other plans, maybe I would see some savings.

    What with a-list and roll-over minutes, I do not really need unlimited voice. However, one news report suggests that the "unlimited" data really isn't, that there is a whole list of limits. Anyone know what these limits are and whether or not they different from the limits that we have now?

    AT&T did this right after Verizon made the announcement. I don't use the unlimited plans...but thank goodness for competition.

    I suggested Skype as an alternative to the unavailable AT&T microcell. However, the failure of Skype to support Bluetooth makes this a non-starter for me personally. I never hold the iPhone up to my ear.

    I switched to the new unlimited plan. I use my phone heavily and ran out of my rollover minutes, but it is what it is. I only use about 600 megs a month in data, so their 5 gig softcap will never affect me. Now bring on those tiered data plans..........

    I know this isn't the fourm for this but do any of the text apps let u use your own phone number? I think it would be confusing for people to have to switch numbers.

    The unlimited plan is $10 more than the 900 minutes plan (individual) and the 2100 minutes plan (family). If you are on those, and were worried about running out of minutes, this is cheaper than the previous options.

    This plan is aimed at people like that. Not people who were getting the minimum (or close to it).

    If you have some finite amount of minutes, and no concern about running over (lots of rollover or something), why should AT&T give you more minutes for the same price or less?
