You will lose it with your next upgrade, but they are giving unlimited plans something like 5 gigs when they upgrade to the iPhone 5

Maybe she is an exception... Please don't make me find the link on my phone. Maybe they call it "unlimited" for grandfathered plans, but there is still a cap. And AT&T will throttle you before you reach it. I will let you know when I upgrade

from what I am hearing, it is pretty tough to reach 5 gigs a month even streaming music, playing Netflix and downloading things left and right. Unless she is streaming 24/7 everything under the sun there is no way your average user would come close to that.

Especially if you are hitting wifi spots

i used over 7 gigs when the olympics were on
that was an expensive cellphone bill

and i had to shut off my mobile data tonight because i am less than 100 mbs away from going over 4GB for the month ... and the billing cycle resets tomorrow
i think i should upgrade from my 2GB data to 3GB data plan
but then when i got on the AT&T website, i got to looking at all the shared data stuff

Are you connecting to wifi or just streaming all day long during these things, i.e. the olympics....

obviously i was streaming over 4G LTE otherwise i wouldn't have bothered mentioning
no wifi connection available when you are in a law office at least 20-25 floors above ground level
and streaming media sites are blocked on work computers

that's why you don't upgrade. but you have to keep buying phones that are off ATT's radar to keep it indefinitely.

that's impossible. you can't get a grandfathered plan reinstated. once it's cancelled, there is no way to get it back, it doesn't even show up on the computer for the CS rep to put it back on your account. the only thing i could think of is that they could have still offered the unlimited data plan at that point in time.

you can still keep the unlimited if you are grandfathered in when you upgrade to the iphone 5. i think what the problem was that those people that preordered online were tricked into getting rid of it cause they couldn't read for **** lol when you go in person, like i did for my sister (she's under my account), they didn't change the plan at all other than the usual price of the phone and the activation fee.

i agree, it is hard to hit that number, unless you're downloading torrents but it's better to have unlimited than not tbh. if you look at how much it costs if you go over, it's not worth the risk unless you're sure you'll never hit that.

also, the throttling seems to happen only on iphone/android users. it never throttles for me lol

Well then it's a miracle
Because it happened
Don't try to tell me that it didn't and the unlimited plans were long gone by the time the 4s came out

yea it must be some fluke in the system (which can happen since their system is old as **** lol). because once a plan is phased out, it's completely gone from the system. even if it's ATT's fault that the unlimited plan is cancelled, they can't do anything to bring it back. the only unlimited plan that i know of is the family shared data plan (for dumbphones, which works perfectly fine on smartphones that ATT doesn't sell).
