AT&T has today unveiled its 3G pre-paid data plans for the iPad, which include access to over 20,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots nationwide at no extra cost.
The Domestic Data Plans for the iPad are as follows:
• $14.99 per month for 250 MB
• $29.99 per month for unlimited data
The charges will be automatically renewed every 30 days, unless you cancel your service, and you can change your domestic plan any time without penalty. Should you make a change, a new 30-day window will begin.
If you’re worried about possibly exceeding your monthly data limit, AT&T says that the on-device management system enables you to keep an eye on your data consumption directly via your iPad, and that users on the $14.99 plan will receive three alerts when they’re about to reach their 250 MB data limit – at 20 percent, 10 percent, and zero – when they will also be given the opportunity to add more data. Should you miss all the warnings and exceed your allowed amount of data, then your plan will expire, but AT&T say that you can simply add another one.
