    I'm still rocking the original iPad 3G 64gb w/ unlimited AT&T data plan :thumbs: :D

    I do know they grandfathered those who moved to the iPad 2 last year. But how will it be for the iPad 3? Does anybody have any scoop yet?

    Best advice is to call AT&T customer service and find out. I don't see why they wouldn't, what with the recent press Ma Bell has received over throttling unlimited cell phone data users, but stranger things have happened in the Mobile world lately.

    I talked to the AT&T store yesterday and they said that if I bought a new iPad to bring it down to them and they would help me with the transition of my current plan to the new unit.

    Yay! Sounds good :eek: If AT&T wasn't going to grandfather my unlimited data, I was switching to Verizon's iPad because of the faster 4G here.


    Please report back if you have done "the switch* already (possibly next weekend) :thumbs:

    I spoke directly with AT&T iPad Customer Support and they confirmed that I will be able to transfer the original unlimited plan to the new iPad. He said I could do it directly on the device itself when I first start it up or by logging in to my account at www.att.com/ipadlanding.

    That seals the deal for me. Off to order my new iPad. :)

    AT&T LTE is faster than Verizon 4G

    It's that time folks! :eek:

    Please post here IF you have successfully transferred your unlimited AT&T Data Plan (grandfathered) from your original iPad to the 3rd gen iPad. Also, how is the 4G speed compared to 3G (if available)?
