    I feel so bad for everyone who recently bought one of the original plans for $1,000+.

    Odd, I see the unlimited option you are referring to under the "Prepaid" header but the pricing of $29.99 for 30 days doesn't seem consistent with the other options that charge more for limited data. Granted, some of the options for data are for more than 30 days--or less and cheaper but still. I haven't seen this marketed anywhere--I wonder if this is a mistake?

    Hmmm... but does it come with unlimited hotspot sharing? Prepaid makes it a bit troublesome though - I'd like multiple SIMs for all my cellular iPads.

    Wow, that's cool unlimited for the iPad is back. I wonder if the other carriers will begin offering plans as well?

    All the grandfathered plans are now automatically worthless, since they are now also slowed after 22GB during periods of congestion. Yikes.

    I was just looking on eBay to see what the rate of the plan was after the "unlimited" became throttled. They were still going for like $600-700. I feel bad for anyone who purchased on in the last week.

    I was just curious if anyone has seen slower speeds on their iPad unlimited plan now that AT&T my slow speeds after 22gb.

    I'm using the free 200MB T-Mobile plan and out of curiosity I went through the steps to add a new cellular plan on my LTE Air 2, using Sprint as I have Sprint wireless lines. Looks like I could get unlimited data on the iPad for $30/month + single $50 add fee. I didn't finish the setup but it appears as if it it's available through my existing Sprint account. Anyone using this through Sprint to confirm cost?

    I don
    I don't know why. I didn't read anywhere where it says unlimited LTE data. Big difference vs unlimited data.

    My wife and I are still on the original AT&T grandfathered unlimited date plan on our iPads. I go "way" over 22g every month. My wife goes over but not by much. Neither of us have ever been throttled (yet).

    But check this out....

    My dad is on the new AT&T unlimited iPad plan. He has my daughters iPad on the new unlimited also. Both my dad and daughter HAVE both been throttled. We all live within 75 miles of each other in the San Jose, Ca area.

    My daughters goes so slow that YouTube won't load.
    My old grandfather unlimited plans just keeps on going.

    I don't have the answer as to why... but it is what it is.
