First off, this post is not meant to be a so long thread. It's an "Enough is Enough" thread. This is was written in frustration to get my thoughts out. Last year I had to say goodbye to my iPhone because of the constant monthly raping by AT&T. Sure, it's cool to have an iPhone if it's on an individual plan at $100 per month unlimited. However, business users that share minutes get raped by having to pay for expensive minutes, txt msgs, and individual data plans. WAY to damn expensive for the spotty service they provide. I switched to Sprint last June and have enjoyed a good discount and superior service. Although, I still wanted my iPhone back and was hoping that by some miricle, AT&T would have a great plan that would bring me back onboard at WWDC. Looks like that will not happen. Anyways back to the iPad 3greedy. I purchased the iPad specifically for the unlimited data @ $30 per month pay as you go. I was convinced that Apple would have some sort of lock on AT&T stoping them from running their name through the mud. Unfortunately, I am now having flashbacks of the iPhone launch and the drastic price drops that screwed so many. No, the price did not drop on the iPad, but the technical future of the iPad it's design to consume media, on the go, at a reasonable price is gone now for good. This is the reason I and so many others purchased the 3G version. I do understand that some of you purchased it specifically for the GPS chip and are extremely happy. Even if I were in your position, I would be extremely concerned about this move and what issues it may cause as your habits change in the future. I don't know what else to say. This is an extremely sad day for the iPad 3G. In addition, this also is a sad day for this Apple user that now refuses to purchase ANY device with AT&T involved. I forgave Apple for the iPhone launch because it tried to make good on their marketing errors, but this move by AT&T had to have been planned and I am sure everyone involved knew it was coming. Apple is not the company it was a few years back. I find it annoying that they are going to punish journalists for the iPhone leak, but they don't give a rats ass that AT&T just, once again screwed over all their loyal and happy customers. Seriously Apple, where are your priorities? I'm sure everyone will have a field day with this thread and will try and convince me that it's my bad for trusting AT&T. But seriously, is this what we would have expected from Apple say 4-5 years ago?
