    I wonder if they were able to MMS... JK JK LOL! :D

    But that does suck for them. I had that plan a LONG time ago it really was awesome.

    As nice as that would be, to get a little extra bandwidth, I highly doubt that would happen.

    It's also got to "hurt" all those that hate AT&T and thought they'd buck the system

    I'm not quite sure why they would do that... Seems like that is a sure fire way to LOSE customers... but at the same time, maybe those iPhone custies were sucking up their bandwidth too much.

    It's the same reason why AT&T no longer offers an unlimited data plan for $19.99 for GoPhone users. Too many people were using the iPhone for that and AT&T was losing money.

    Yeah, that's what I tried to imply with the bandwidth explanation.

    I'm not sure I get why people would do this in the first place...
    $1 a day = $30/$31 a month

    Where is the savings?

    I believe that plan included unlimited text alongside data.

    Noob here

    Hey all long time lurker just recently took the plunge and joined :D Sorry if this has been asked, but is this change only affecting prepaid customers or is it affecting anyone with the cheaper internet plans? I just recently purchased a 2g Iphone from the ebay and was thinking about doing a myfaves flex pay no contract $39 plan with the $20 unlimited internet/ text plan. Have my plans been thwarted lol.

    So the savings was just whatever unlimited text costs using AT&T?

    iPhone 2G (on AT&T) - $40 unlimited data/txting
    $40 > $31

    iPhone 3G/3G S (on AT&T - no 3G w/ TMO) - $50 unlimited data/txting
    $50 > $31

    Ah, I missed the part about unlimited texts as well. Thought it was just data.
