    I purchased my iPad today and when I was signing up for the 3G data plan I noticed that there was still unlimited data available so I signed up for it. But to my knowledge AT&T discontinued this option. Can someone tell me what the deal is?

    AT&T made exceptions for certain groups of people, including those who purchased their ipad's before the 7th. Did you pay for it today or just receive it today?

    Wow. I got nuthin.

    At least, you gave me hope that if I can convince a loved-one to get one, that the unlimited plan will still be available. Is it $30, still.

    Yes it was 30 dollars. Am I lucky or is this a common thing?

    Got my iPad on the 22nd and when I did the 3G setup, the only choice was the new plans. I called ATT and waited over an hour for an answer. Tech had me sign up for the 2 GB limited plan and she said i would receive the change to the unlimited plan in a few days, purchased online June 6.

    What exactly did you say to them. It would be sweet if I was able to do the same thing.

    When did you purchase your Ipad?
    If your Ipad was on backorder when the cutoff date was enacted you can get the unlimited plan by calling ATT and letting them walk you through the process.
    If it was purchased after the date then you are unable to get that unlimited plan.

    I currently have unlimited. I wonder if I switch to something else (ie 2GB plan), would I be able to go back to the unlimited option?

    Nope! Once you leave the original plan, you're out.

    People keep saying this like it's a given, yet I've heard the opposite. What's your source?

    Btw, I realize that safe money says "Don't cancel." I'm just wondering what takes this from "could be" to "definitely."

    You are correct if you turn the unlimited plan off for a month you will not be able to get back on it. There is currently a Class Action being taken against Apple and AT&T on the basis of the unlimited offering was a bait and switch scheme all along.

    Did the lawsuit specifically mention that the plan could not be suspended for a month without losing the grandfathering?
