    Even though AT&T's $30 unlimited data plan technically went the way of the dodo back on June 7, the company had assured 3G iPad owners that they'd be entitled to one last hurrah -- buy an iPad prior to the 7th and you'd be allowed to grandfather into the old plan, even if you didn't receive your purchase by the deadline.

    Problem is, the unlimited plan option finally disappeared off AT&T-connected iPads for the first time today, leaving some of these eligible folks who haven't yet signed up for 3G data in the lurch. Not to worry, though: AT&T says that everyone who's eligible "will be able to select the unlimited plan" and that "details will follow." In other words, we don't know how this is going to work yet, but at least the carrier's aware of the issue. Stay tuned.

    Unlimited available on new iPad last Friday

    Purchased a 3G iPad last Tuesday, and it arrived last Friday. The unlimited data plan was still available so I signed up for it with no problem. Having read in several places that AT&T killed the plan, I was really surprised when signing into my account to see the option.

    AT&T's colossal slowness isn't always a bad thing :D

    Shouldn't we all know by now when AT&T says not to worry, we should not worry... :rolleyes:
