    Up until today, I've been subscribed to the unlimited 3G service, but noticed this morning that I had 'no data remaining on plan'.
    After signing in to check my plan, the unlimited I have been using is no longer available.
    I'll have to check my data usage and see if the 250Mb plan is viable, though it pretty much kills streaming movies.

    You should call. As I understand it, if you had the unlimited, they have to keep giving you unlimited.

    Curses to AT&T, but in Switzerland, our carriers are almost as bad.

    Definitely Call AT&T

    There have been some reports in the iPad Carrier section of this forum where a member had a similar experience and AT&T restored unlimited plan.

    BTW, are you really able to stream movies via 3G seamlessly? I thought that would be excruciatingly slow.

    Good luck with AT&T.

    3G works fine for NetFlix etc.

    Sometimes I start them streaming and then go to bed just to see how much data I can use up during a month. No problems in going way over the 5GB limit others have. AT&T is true to its word. The data is unlimited on my iPad.

    I would give them a call GrendelPrime. My unlimited plan just renewed yesterday on the auto renewal plan that I first subscribed to when I got my iPad.

    AT&T can't wait until all of the iPad 1Gs are out of service so that they can screw everyone on their mobile data offerings.

    Hmmmm. That's weird. I've gone through jailbreaking and several firmware changes (one of them illicit), and they haven't done anything to my unlimited 3G data.

    You guys must have much, much better 3G than I have if you're talking about streaming Netflix on 3G. The only time I'll get better than 1 gbps in my little home town is like 4:00 AM.

    Although I am glad I have unlimited data, and although I do not mind paying 29.99/month for it, I have to admit that I have never got anywhere close to the 2 GB limit of the cheaper plan.

    Even when I am working in DC and have the much faster 3G speeds there, I could not imagine being stuck on having to use 3G for data intensive applications. It would be just horrible.

    I only use 3G when I'm out in the field somewhere, and have the iPad set up to work on whatever WiFi is accessible in the buildings I work in.
