    Hi: I have an early unopened Ipad 32gb 3g wifi - Mailing date was 6/20/2010. I think it should qualify for the original unlimited data plan. Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks for any help... Bill

    Since they don't even offer the plan any longer I'm not sure I see how you could even sign up for it. Yes, I realize that many people (including myself) still have the unlimted data plan but my guess is that it won't happen.

    Thanks for the quick reply - Your reply does sound logical, anyone else have a different view?

    I think he's right. The mailing/deliver/sale date of the ipad has nothing to do with the date you sign up for service. Conceivably, one could never sign up for 3g service, that doesn't entitle to a price/plan that no longer exists. Sorry. :(

    AT&T probably does.

    If you didn't sign up for unlimited service when it was offered, why would they offer it to you, when they don't offer it any more?

    Having a car that was made in 1975 and never driven wouldn't get you to gas for 90 cents a gallon.

    Couldn't hurt to ask though... they have competition now.

    i'm not sure it's so black and white, AT&T advertised that
    iPads ordered or purchased before a certain cutoff date
    were eligible for the unlimited plan. i believe it was around
    July 10 give or take so if he can prove his was ordered
    before that date they might just give it to him.

    as for it being no longer available, well i sold my 3GS and
    had a Nexus 1 for 3 months before going back to the iPhone
    and all it took was a little begging to the right supervisor
    and i got my unlimited plan back. so anything it possible !
