    I bought the Unlimited £3 add-on on Three UK (normal contract price is £10).

    unlimited att. I typically use less than 2gb, but I'm sure I will come closer to the 5gb throttle mark now b.c the phone is faster, so I will use it a lot more when out.

    Full retail. It's my home Internet, so I no longer pay Comcast. Well worth it as long as I keep the phone for a couple years.

    Those of you with unlimited, are you actually using more or less data in the long run then a lesser plan would offer you? Would you actually be saving money by changing to a lower plan? Do you just like knowing you have unlimited?

    I am in Vermont and we have no LTE. Clearly faster network = more data use.

    I've looked at my bills going back to summer 2011 and I've only used 800MB in my largest month. Certainly "pre paying" for unlimited vs having a lower plan, saving money and if needed bumping up if needed would be more ideal.

    Unlimited on AT&T since the original iPhone. I'll fight to the death before I give it up.

    Unlimited on AT&T, wife is unlimited on Verizon. Still looking for a 5 (on a 4 currently). was going to switch to Verizon (much better coverage here), but I don't want to lose my plan. I am hoping the 5 will hold calls better. Wife will probably stick with the 4 for now since Verizon makes you change your plan on upgrades.

    Unlimited on AT&T. I pay $30 for my data plan, $30 for my second line, $9.99 for the extra line, and $50 for 550 minutes. I do not pay for a text plan, since 90% of the people I interact with have iPhones, and I use the free app TextNow for the others. I may have 2-5 random texts in a month that I have to pay for.

    So, I'm paying $120 for two phones with unlimited data on each. There isn't a shared plan in existence that could get me off of that deal. I don't care about tethering - when I want to use my iPad in an area with no wi-fi (like if I'm traveling) then I pay for one month. I can live without Facetime over cellular.

    Oh, and I do have LTE in my area. It rocks.

    Unlimited data on Verizon for $9.99/month. I got a sweetheart deal about 2 years ago, and will never buy a subsidized phone from them. :D
