Cutting to the chase. There’s no unlimited plan. Capped at 5GBs a month. True other carriers charge more for the same cap (Sprint Mobile Broadband $59.99 on 3G/Unlimited on 4G).
My thing is that there was an unlimited plan. Offer it. I’ll pay $35 for it–possibly $40…maybe. But AT&T has gone screwed it over.
I’m not alone when I say this but AT&T has gone and screwed over Apple. From the fiasco earlier today with the iPhone, and the whole iPad email thing. AT&T has proven not just in the past months but certainly overall, that they suck.
I’m already almost decided that if I don’t continue to have unlimited data on the iPhone after my contract ends–I’m not renewing.
As I mentioned in an earlier post I’d rather purchase a Wi-Fi enabled iPad than purchase an iPhone 4.
I’m not overtly excited about it. It looks nice indeed. But I’m not excited.
I saw the HTC Evo and was impressed. The whole Wi-Fi Hotspot also caught my attention. I liked it.
I’d have to pay for that over at AT&T.
I’ve had Sprint before and I’d prefer them over AT&T. I never had a dropped call with Sprint.
I hadn’t even experienced a drop call till I got an iPhone on AT&T’s network.
I’ve had my share of cell phones on different networks. From Alltel Wireless, Nextel (before Sprint), Sprint (after Nextel), Helio (on Sprint’s Network), T-Mobile, and then finally AT&T.
I’ve had issues with them, mostly regarding billing, overcharges, wrong data plans, voice plans, etc. Which were all corrected.
Yet with AT&T I had the main issue with the actual voice/data service.
I digress however.
My other reason for not yet purchasing an iPad is the whole retina display. I feel that soon. Rather than later. Apple will release a retina display iPad. If I purchase an iPad within the next three months and in a month after my purchase they release a new iPad. I think I’ll be fairly certain I might not buy an Apple product for a long time.
