    I do that too. It would be cool though if Apple added an auto reset date there (user provided date) and a running history.

    I am right to assume that having a grandfathered unlimited on your iPhone does NOT allow for unlimited on iPad. Right?

    Don't think so. But for the most accurate answer, check with your wireless carrier.

    Sent from my Verizon Black 64GB iPad 2 w IOS 5.1 Update From NYC!!! using iPF.net

    You are right as far as Verizon is concerned. I just turned on their LTE on my new iPad and have unlimited 3G on my iPhone. The plan for the phone is separate from the iPad. Of course, if you try and find out otherwise, please let us all know. I don't like paying for a metered plan.

    AFAIK that's true with AT&T. Maybe your friends were throttled because they were tethering off their phone data plans. But it still doesn't make sense why they would've been throttled at 5GBs as you described, because the phone throttling cutoff has been officially announced at 3GBs, and even before the official announcement (when AT&T refused to specify), signs pointed to them toggling at 3GBs or less, depending on monthly average use for each market.

    And tethering doesn't allow unlimited anyway, so throttling shouldn't have come up for your friends even if they tethered, unless they're jailbroken and tethering, then were throttled.

    I read a article someone sued AT&T and won over AT&T throttling him. I also read they weren't throttling LTE users.

    I posted a video on my YouTube channel on how to do it, if anyone wants a visual.

    Well, after I did all of the above, I ended up having to return my iPad 3 and revert my unlimited plan back to my iPad 1. The process was much easier this time. I simply logged on to my AT&T account on my iPad 1 and it gave me the option to put on unlimited plan on that iPad. The changeover took about three minutes and required no calls to AT&T. Thank you AT&T for making it so easy.

    When I transferred mine all I had to do was click existing customer and enter my email address and password. It then gives you a choice to keep your existing grandfathered unlimited plan or switch. That's it - couldn't be easier.
