AT&T Killing Unlimited Data Plans June 7th

If you're waiting to buy an iPhone or iPad, now is the time to do it. AT&T is eliminating their unlimited data plans on all devices starting June 7th. 

If you already have an unlimited data plan on one of your devices, you get to keep it, for now...

Don't be surprised if other carriers jump on this bandwagon once they see how it works out for AT&T.

Personally it would be surprising if this lasts, as data flow is only going to increase exponentially in the future. Capping heavy users seems like a very foolish idea. The carrier who keeps their unlimited data option will be a big winner in the future.


FINALLY! Tethering coming to the iPhone with OS 4.0

It's official. Tethering is coming to the iPhone with the upcoming OS 4.0 update. Lets hope AT&T has upgraded their network enough to handle the extra data load. They wouldn't want a repeat of this little fiasco.

If AT&T messes this up, Verizon is set to pounce and swoop up a huge number of current AT&T iPhone subscribers. Simply put, Verizon's network is incredible and very stable comparatively.
