    If you do not already have it, there is no way to get it. Sorry.

    Well... there was one. I got an iPhone 3GS before the 7th data change at an AT&T Store. I have 30 days to exchange it for the new one.

    Did the same thing. Posted a thread the same day (the 6th) to try to help anyone who was wondering if it would work. Unfortunately there is no way to get unlimited data anymore. Maybe if you pitch a fit or go to the store strapped with an explosive device and demand it, they might give it to you.

    I wonder if we will be able to exchange it on launch day? Will it be too crowded or does the AT&T store have little stock?

    take out the contract now and you will still have unlimited data for as long as you have the contract.

    This is not true with AT&T. The unlimited plan was eliminated June 7 (the day the iPhone 4 was officially announced). It is too late, now.

    I spent over an hour in the AT&T store talking to the rep (I had 2 people with me and they both got iPhones for the unlimited data). He said launch day should go smoothly for us. My friend and I plan to be the first two in line and are going to get him specifically cause he knows our plan so it goes smoothly for us and he benefits because he gets commission. It's a win-win situation. Please believe im not walking out the door without the unlimited plan tho. Haha

    If you still have an original iPhone, you can sign up for service on iTunes and you still get unlimited data using that iPhone. You are then instantly eligible for an iPhone 4 upgrade and you can keep the unlimited data plan that way. Original iPhone data plans are not offered 2GB data plans, only unlimited.

    It is gone for new lines of service. They now offer the new DataPro Enterprise for $40 per month with at 2 GB Cap + $10 for every additional 1 GB after you hit the cap. :eek:

    It depends on the plan.

    $15 DataPlus - 200 MB
    $25 DataPro - 2 GB

    100% positive. We did it with one of our 2Gs yesterday morning. AT&T only offers the unlimited data plans for the original iPhones. There is no 200MB or 2GB choices for the original iPhone. the 200MB and 2GB limits are only for the 3Gs. AT&T states the original iPhone users keep unlimited data plans when upgrading to a 3G, 3GS or iPhone 4.

    Sign up on iTunes and you get unlimited + 200 SMS for $19.99.

    I was reading the ATT launch day store info posted on Engadget (or was it Gizmodo...I forget.) Anyway there is a blurb that customers can activate using iTunes. I wonder if this means Apple is going back to the original iPhone plan where they just sell you the phone and you activate at home, not in store like with the 3G or GS. That def. would make things go quicker.

    Follow these instructions 100%.

    Insert a new never been used sim into the iPhone. Restore the iPhone in itunes. Once the restore is done, iTunes will then prompt you to activate your brand new iPhone :). Follow the instructions and in minutes, your iPhone will be activated with an unlimited data plan and whatever minute plan you choose. You'll have to use that sim in the original iPhone until you get the new iPhone activated. If you try using that sim in a 3G/3GS iPhone, you risk AT&T automatically switching you to a 3G plan automatically.

    If you need anything on the iPhone when you first get it, you can back it up in iTunes first, then restore it and proceed to activate the iPhone as i mentioned above. Once the phone is activated, you can restore your backup by right clicking on the iPhone in iTunes and select restore from backup.

    You will be eligible for an iPhone 4 upgrade the second that original iPhone is activated. You will pay the $199/$299 upgrade price. :)

    Original iPhones are still an amazing phone to keep around. You never know when you may need it. Enjoy that iPhone 4 on release day! :D

    There may be a way, but in the end it probably doesn't matter. Unless you download movies/TV shows over 3g you don't need unlimited. And you get to save a bit of money.
