    Just thought I'd start a discussion on this, as providers like Sprint consider anything over 160mb/month to be "abusive" for their EV-DO plant that they claim is unlimited, and AT&T for their 3G plans will start sending "nastygrams" when you hit 3GB or so of use. If I were to get an iPhone data plan I would want to know that I could recklessly use the data plan with no repercussions. The sorts of stuff that the iPhone can do, like Youtube, are data-intensive, most Youtube movies are in the multiple megabytes, etc. Things would only get worse once the iPhone gets 3G.

    Oh, and some shameless self-promotion - the site in my sig has the most important iPhone news condensed together, plus I will get live stuff on the 29th up there so those at home can stay up to date.

    There is a 5GB soft limit on data usage with AT&T's unlimited data plan.

    NO, there is not a soft limit on the iPhone. Read the TOS; you are referring to the limit for air cards. There is no limit for the iphone.

    This thread is over TWO YEARS OLD GUYS. Why would you reply to a thread this old? The OP has most likely found an answer by now.
