    Both AT&T and Apple website no longer show $30 unlimited data plan for the iPad.

    Glad I got my order in yesterday:D.

    And for some reason sales seem to be stuck at 2 million. Hmmm. :eek:

    Be careful not to tap "cancel" on the update plan screen, you may never get the unlimited option again. Some people are saying they see the old and new pricing available on their account. I assume they have not activated 3G unlimited yet.

    With the iPhone 4 using micro-SIM, is it the case that if I keep my iPad unlimited plan, I can trade out the iPhone SIM and use the unlimited plan on the iPhone? I know that calls wouldn't work, at least not with my usual mobile number. I'm just asking about the data.

    Just increased the FUD level, while rendering toothless most of the potential class-action claims.

    I suspect they saw how clearly in the wrong they were.

    Jobs had to have been PISSED when he found out. Makes it quite personal - makes him out to be a liar, plain and simple, otherwise. They seem to have done a good job, so far, of covering-up whatever squabbling went on over this, and I'll bet it was considerable.

    Would love to get the back-story. This happened suddenly and without much planning.

    What we don't know yet:

    1. How long this is for - for a few months at least, (enough to satisfy people that Job's claim was true) or just to accommodate un-shipped iPads 3Gs? (Or until production catches up.)

    2. Will you be able to stop/start, and if you do, will there be sufficient notice to start and "grandfather" when they finally do eliminate "unlimited".

    It's ironic that now both sites aren't showing unlimited, but it IS available! They just can't get the customer-communication right. At this point, it's a heads-you-win, tails-you-lose situation. For both customers and ATT.

    I subscribed a few weeks ago and plan to maintain the plan, but this is annoying b/c it reduces the flexibility of downgrading or suspending service if you want (for example, during a long trip outside the U.S.). If the $30/unlimited plan wasn't available, I might not have bought the iPad, and I would hesitate now to recommend it to others. Of course, if you use a myfi type setup, this doesn't matter for you.

    Are you sure about that?

    On top of that, I've never opted for the unlimited plan but when I checked today I still have that option.

    That makes sense as you purchased the iPad before today (obviously), so the option is still available, like ATT and now stated it will be.

    Seems that the unlimited is indeednstill available and clearly advertised as such on AT&T web site. It is as mentioned above for a limited time available with now time parameters indicated. So I'm not sued why this thread was even started.

    That makes sense. Once you activate UDP, it will no longer be an option, just 250, 2 and cancel.
