Hi all, First time posting. I've greatly enjoyed perusing the threads on this forum so far. Some very passionate participants with strongly held opinions! To my question (and I know this has been brought up in other threads, but I haven't seen a thread specific to this one concern): Why do people hold onto their unlimited data plans so vehemently? If your monthly usage is 6GB+ I can see the advantage, but look at the disadvantages: - No tethering unless jailbroken - No taking advantage of iOS 6 Facetime over cellular (at least with AT&T) - No taking advantage of the shared data plans (I know they are not attractive to most, but for families with 3+ smartphones/devices they have merit I think) I've seen some posts where people are even prepared to pay for a no contract iPhone in order to keep their unlimited data - that's denying yourself a $20 a month subsidy on the phone right there. Or is it just a case of wanting to hold the wireless carriers to their word, even if they don't want to support unlimited data plans any more? I switched from unlimited to the AT&T 5GB plan with hotspot, and now my family is on the AT&T Share Plan with 6GB between 3 smartphones. We have 3 wi-fi only iPads in the family and being able to use any phone as a hotspot is very convenient. I have not missed the unlimited data once, nor have I exceeded my data allowance once. What is your situation?
