I think it is fairly obvious that the 3G iPhone will require the more expensive $30/month data plan. As for the bandwidth cap, AT&T has capped the 3G plans at 5 GB/month. If you can download 5 Gb of data in one month on an iPhone, I'd be really impressed.
Even though I doubt I'd ever use 5 GB in a month, if there is a cap put into place with 3G, then it truly would not be an "unlimited" data plan anymore.
However, if I know I'll never go past the 5GB cap, and the speed is that much more noticeable, I guess it would be worth it. I just hope the price increase isn't too huge.
I pay considerably less for service through AT&T than I ever did through Verizon Wireless.
If memory serves, I was paying somewhere around $40 a month for unlimited data through Verizon. I pay $20 through AT&T. I love the rollover minutes (of which I have quick a nice stash) and the coverage has been every bit as good as I had through Verizon.
If anything, I have found AT&T's service to be VERY reasonable when compared to other providers.
other providers? but you only mentioned Verizon.... try T-Mobile... $6 for unlimited internet.... $15 for unlimited TEXT... 5 bars no drop calls.... please AT&T salesperson don't try to back them up... did you have to pay pro rated with no type of discounts? your first bill!
Its has a very easy GUI to follow that will allow you to unlock it and jailbreak it at the touch of a button. After that you insert your t-mobile sim card and you're good to go. If you want the internet plan that costs $5.99 you have to go into installer icon (which will appear on your phone after jailbreaking it) and install the "tzones 5.99 hack". After that you just have to call up t-mobile and request the 5.99 plan which will enable to surf the net on the phone.
The everythingicafe modifications section is very helpful as well. Every question you have has most likely been brought up.
Thanks bro, Im seriously considering doing this cause the At&t plan I want is about $90 dollars- 450min, Data, and unimited text, my only dilemma is that I want the 3G iPhone and we all know that T-mobile doesn't have 3G service.
3g is coming for tmobile, in the summer bout the same time as bb bold release for tmo.(rumors) its up to you pay a lot monthly or switch to tmo. I can't wait till they be able to unlock/jailbreak 3g iPhones.... Then I'll have $6 3G unlimited.
