AT&Tâ€™s announcement earlier in the week that itâ€™s removing the â€œUnlimitedâ€ option from its 3G data plans after June 7th has caused dismay among some customers who want to secure an unlimited data plan for their iPad before the cut-off date next week, but who donâ€™t have their paid-for 3G iPad yet due to the stock shortages. The problem is caused by the fact that you actually need to use your iPad 3G to sign up for the unlimited plan, which is of course impossible if you donâ€™t have one yet!
AT&T apparently told Nick Bilton of The New York Times that it is looking into how to help users caught in this dilemma, which doesnâ€™t affect those lucky customers who already had an unlimited iPhone or iPad data plan, as their original plan will be honored by AT&T. An anonymous AT&T executive reportedly told The New York Times that the company hopes to allow any customer who has paid for an iPad before June 7th but hasnâ€™t received it to sign up for an unlimited data plan without having to actually physically have the iPad in their possession.
