    I didn't have my iPhone anymore so I called AT&T and took off the data plan about 3 weeks ago.

    Well now I have my 3GS back (Will be getting the iPhone 4 soon) and I can't get the unlimited data plan back. Called AT&T, even talked to a supervisor. It didn't work.

    I don't want their measly 2GBs. :(

    There is no way to get the unlimited back. I'm mad about it as well. It may yet again appear in about 5 years.

    This. Sorry, but it's a "grandfather" rule. You can keep unlimited forever as long as you keep it constantly. Once you change for any reason it's gone.

    That's a big oops for you. 3 weeks.. not even a billing cycle. You should of just kept it until you get a new iPhone.

    You only have 200MB and 2GB options to choose now.

    :(

    When I called, I actually just told them I am using a different phone now and didn't even want to take off the data plan. They said it would save me money if they took it off. I said fine.

    I never got an email saying that after June 7th there won't be any more unlimited data plans :(

    I would ask AT&T and not a bunch of random people on an internet forum. ;)

    You're SOL dude.
    No matter how much you complain and speak to 100 managers they cannot add it back cause its not available any more.
    You have to be "grandfathered"
    No, you cannot be "Grandfathered" or transfer the unlimited data from one line to another.
    You can transfer you phone and start using that line/number from now on if you want.
    No other options.

    :D

    Right because MacRumors forum has a much better reputation about the intricacies of AT&T packages?

    Build a time machine and stop yourself from taking off the unlimited data plan.

    The news has been all over the place. :)

    Now seriously, I don't think it's too bad to settle with the 2GB plan. I don't know how you use your iPhone, but it's pretty hard to hit that limit in one month. You'll save 5 dollars a month. :)

    Definitely not perfect, but a better overall track record than AT&T CS lately. :D

    Last I remember ATT gives you 30 days to reconsider.

    What's worse is that the original iPhone unlimited plan included unlimited data + unlimited text messages. Even people who were able to keep unlimited data had to select an alternative texting plan, which carried an additional fee with it.

    i actually am in the same boat sorta, i cancelled my contract 3 weeks ago, called again today asking if i could come back and if i'd still get my old plan like it was, they told me i had 59 days to come back and that if i did i'd be grandfathered back into my unlimited plan
