Would you want a refund if ending to unlimited data plan was announced?

    Let's say hypothetically that ATT announced that in 6 months all customers would be required to switch over to the new data plan rates and there would be no more unlimited plans.

    If apple offered a grace period accepting full returns with refunds, would you trade in your beloved 3G or switch to the limited data plan?

    Nope. I was just sitting in my car waiting for the wife and was able to get online while waiting in the parking lot.... No 3G and I couldn't do that anymore. Most places have wifi so you really shouldn't rack up that much 3G with a little self control. I am thinking about downgrading my unlimited plan as it is.

    I orders 16gb 3G direct from apple on the 5th (pre-deadline), but then saw one available at bestbuy. I got the best buy 64gb 3G and cancelled apple order figuring I could live with new plan.
    Turns out I signed up and on for unlimited on jun 9th!!

    What gets lost in all the debate is that even the new plans are among the best deals going for wireless data. I'm sticking.

    I'm very happy with my 3G I'm in the uk so I use O2 which gives me 3GB a month for £15 which isn't bad really

    I was paying $30/mo to Verizon for data on my phone - even without the unlimited plan, I doubt I will top that. Plus, my company pays my data bill because I'm on call 24hrs and have to respond to email alerts.

    I switched mine before the deadline to get unlimited data. I wanted unlimited data since we have netflix so i can watch movies on the go.

    Ok, so I did sign up for unlimited b4 the deadline. It is lame of AT&T. But, I definitely wouldn't return the 3G regardless because the new limited plan is still a pretty high bandwidth, isn't it? And As much as I do use the wifi whenever possible, 3G has proven a necessity when on the go, like in a taxi or parking lot.
