    I agree NICE. I have been under the grandfather plan since version one. I think it is a bad choice on what Verizon is doing from a businesss stand point.

    I was promised nothing would change on my plan, that includes the unlimited data plan.

    thats huge! i love that because since the iPhone 5 is 4G/LTE and the speeds are much faster I personally know I will use much more data so having unlimited is crucial. good job ATT!

    Is there a way of combining the unlimited plan with a shared/family one? We have two grandfathered unlimited, but need to have 3 kids on shared....

    Keeping unlimited is nice but not if your throttle at 3 gb(like so many users complain). I never use a lot of data(max is 2gb in a month), so I have moved to mobile share plan to allow everyone to use the data. My son and wife only have 250mg.

    They raised the cap on "unlimited" plans to 5GB. Much more reasonable. But this is their attempt to distract us from the whole FaceTime/shared data debacle, and that's the one I'm really hoping they cave on eventually.

    Is that on LTE or 3G? The 5GB cap that is.

    Either. They don't make a distinction.

    This is awesome, I was convinced that they would force us off of the unlimited plans with the switch to LTE. I was considering switching to Verizon but probably staying with AT&T now...

    I also thought they would take me off unlimited. However I'm not sure how quickly I'll be able to get the new iPhone anywho, haha.

    I agree with you on that one. I am crossing my fingers, eyes and toes that they change their stance on that as well.

    I have a dumb (I am sure) question ... If I order my new phone from Apple ... Do I still get to keep my grandfathered unlimited data with AT&T? I am pretty sure I ordered my 4S from Apple (and my 4) ... so it should be fine, right? Sharunda feel free to help me out here lol

    I wish we has some option with Hotspot/FT combined (I already pay for more data I do not use while tethering the iPad)
    I am paying a few buck extra if I must but on needs to stay on unlimited!

    SunnySweet There should be no problem to keep your unlimited data with AT&T just because you ordered your iPhone from Apple. That shouldn't make a difference at all. You might have to select a plan but you are grandfathered in so this should not matter either.

    I would call Apple and ask them and if they know nothing about what choices will be on their site, call AT&T and find out for sure from them.

    I remember when I got the 4S's there was a section on choosing a plan that was confusing but AT&T cleared it up and people who had Unlimited were able to keep Unlimited.

    I have also got my iPhone from Apple and never had an issue with buying there instead of at AT&T. In fact my last one (4S), I got from Best Buy.
