    Ouch, not nice to do after just one month, and all the unlimited advertising. I went over 2 gig in my first month, so all I can say is, Im so glad I got mine when i did, and can keep my plan! I think they discovered they were wrong about most people not ever using the 3G, AT&T thought that it would all be wifi use.

    The real winners are now the JB/mifi users. You can keep the unlimited data plan on your iPhone (since you will not be officially tethering) and have all the 3G you want on your iPad.

    I'm torn... in the first month of usage, I didn't even rack up 900 megs on 3G. I use my iPad mostly at home and at work, where I have wifi. Mostly, the 3G is used in my car, and I am obviously not streaming videos while I'm driving. However, I often use the map program as I am driving... even if I don't need it. It is fun to play with at stoplights. I also frequently stream radio programs over 3G while driving.

    With my type of usage, I'd find it pretty hard to reach 2gb in a month. I guess there are people who stream a lot of videos from non-wifi locations.

    Anyway, I am torn between downgrading to the $25/2gb and saving $60 a year, or keeping the unlimited plan just in case. The only time I couls imagine going over my 2gb is if I was taking a road trip and my wife was watching movies in the car. She usually wants to watch the scenery, though (something a lot of today's kids never get to see).

    Never used the 3G yet on my iPad.

    Wonder what happens after 6/7/10 if it still hasn't been activated.

    Think I'll be grand-fathered or will they somehow change me to the newer rates?

    Since you haven't activated, I'm sure they would charge the new rate...AT&T doesn't even know you have it yet remember?

    As for tethering, I'm not jail broken, but I tether my iPhone, by keeping 3.0 installed. I'm wondering though, with tethering being legit soon, will they stop those who are doing it without paying or maybe just automatically add that $20 a month?? And since I have unlimited plan would I have to switch to their new pricing to tether legit?

    I'm sure they can tell if it's being used to tether, and these changes bring a lot to ponder. Been considering dropping iPhones totally, since it's only used for calls/texts now....so now I have even more to think about.

    crap! I thought that rate was too good to be true. If you think about it, the iPad has the potential to be the highest data consuming device on their network. If you make use of wifi where you can, 2GB probably wont be an issue for most people though.

    Another reason AT&T sucks. So glad I didn't waste money on the 3G version.

    They couldn't have waited until July 1st or something? I'm going to get my 3G iPad right after this goes into effect. I guess I'll be using Wifi more than I thought.
