    I'm going to get unlimited. I figure I'm going to test the cr@p out of my iPad and I don't want any surprises. If I find that I don't need unlimited then I can always switch to the $15 plan next month.

    It depends how much data you pull down when you are out. The iPad will have a place you can go and check usage so you will be able to see exactly what you are using. I assume that it shows for unlimited as well so I can see the appeal of going unlimited the first month and then deciding what to next based on usage.

    I am totally bummed. Some dingbat at a a fast food place screwed up. It was normally not a big deal, but she screwed things up more by contacting the credit card company and they cancelled my one and only credit card. Now, I not only have to travel all day tomorrow with no credit card, but I cannot activate my 3G service until the new card gets here next week. I wonder if I can sue the eatery for loss of whatever?

    Hmmm Looking at the screen shots posted by 4phun it looks like you won't know how much data you use for an unlimited account? Also, where did you get those screen shots?

    Got two cards mixed up during a rush, by the time I recognized that, she had called the company. I don't use debit cards, nor keep more than one card for general usage. It is a good way to be careful, but lousy when something like this happens. For travel, I am now hitting the Wal-Marts to get gas, but any place that does not take checks or cash, is verboten.
