Ok now something seems wrong on this. I just checked and I can get 1 GB for $0.99 for 7 days but then that would mean 4 GB for $4 a month. What's the catch?

I'm thinking it's a limited time thing.

I have a Nexus 7 with an AT&T account. I don't get this deal when I log into my account on the website. It's only for iPad accounts.

One time deal? As in only this once and then it changes to a monthly plan?

Nobody knows yet what happens since no one has reached the end of the seven days yet.

I bought my iPad on Thursday and signed up for the 3GB deal and the 7 day deal was not there.

No deal like that at my local AT&T store and they are pretty much up on things.

Time to provide some proof for this since most would jump at this opportunity. Until then, ...

Thanks, I will check my Mini when I get home.

Unless nothing needs to be done to get it when you are on your plan/contract, guess this is why AT&T is clueless.

The AT&T store wanted proof. Like I said, this store is pretty much up on things and has been very helpful to me.

I just checked my Mini, my account online, and customer service. This plan is not available to me unless perhaps I have to wait for my next cycle?

If it is just a promotion, who is it available to and when did other folks get their iPad?

Rather strange AT&T would be clueless.

Maybe it is not available to me cause I got my Mini at Friends and Family Pricing for cellular at AT&T for my Mini. Maybe they feel I already got a great enough deal. :)

anyone bought the new plan?

does it include LTE (it is omitted from the pricing pic). is this really a separate plan, not add-on data on top of a required existing plan?

I bought the plan and i got this email. It works but its just a promo one time use i guess.
:(

I was really considering picking up a unlimited sim off ebay, but they're overpriced. I really want a pay per use plan on like for a LTE-iPad, like just for a couple days at a time.

The plans they offer now are useless to me.

AT&T needs to introduce pay-per-day plans. Charge me ~$10 for a week of 2gb data. It would be great for people who take trips every so often. It doesn't even have to be AT&T. Even if VZW does something similar, I'll buy their version of the iPad. If I'm using more, I'd just subscribe to a normal plan or tether off my phone or work mifi.

I signed up for this plan too. Figured there was a catch. I too wish I could purchase blocks is data and use as I see fit without a limited time frame.

I switched from the 2GB plan to this and my confirmation email does not mention it as being one time only.

I am postpaid which this option is not available. Thread is somewhat misleading and I will leave it at that.

Still not sure why AT&T reps I talked to did not know about it.
