    Bad News: Looks Like Unlimited Data Gone if Upgrading to 4G

    [UPDATE] This may only apply to LTE 4G when it starts to roll out late this year. If that's true it will not effect the Atrix, Inspire or Infuse. Let's hope this turns out to be true.

    It looks like AT&T has finally kicked all of us grandfathered into the unlimited data plan in the N**S.

    Accordingto THIS POST on ANDROID CENTRAL if you upgrade to a new 4G device you won't have to pay more for data, you'll just be forced to choose one of the new tiered plans.

    Sorry to anyone I've mislead with the info I was given by AT&T reps previously that we would be able to keep them.

    I'm sure this is going to go over well.

    Second from the bottom says it all...

    * Cusotmers with Retired Unlimited Smartphone data plans requesting to upgrade or switch to a 4G device will be requred to choose an available 4G Smartphone Data Plan.

    I'm willing to bet that a lot of people don't upgrade just for that reason.

    I think I am going to throw up....

    I guess my questions earlier about being charged for 4g were half right, we aren't being charged to use 4g, but we do have to use a different data plan

    I really don't want to give up my unlimited data..

    If I buy my phone out right with no contract can they still make me change my data? I just want to buy the phone full price and pop my sim in.

    Probably... Unless you disable running the 4g network. And continue to use regular 3g.

    Before you start stressing out about the unlimited data plan going away, do a quick analysis on your account to see if you will be affected. It looks like a capped data plan is not a bad thing for me (see image). The most I've used is 1.1 GB and it was about a year ago, with the average about is 525Mb for 2010.

    What is your Max and Average data usage?

    LOL, I looked at my data analysis and the least Ive used is 1.8GB. I average 2-4GB of data a month. This is due too my jailbroken iphone with over 400 downloaded apps on 3g.

    This really makes me sad. I heard someone threatened to go too verizon and they let him keep his plan on a new iphone4 for his wife. Its all in how you talk on the phone. My buddy has gotten himself and others out of there contracts without paying anything.

    I more than likely use less data with my iP3g than with this new phone. Because I can't even surf the web, because my browser crashes. My phone is too slow to use the internet as much as I'd like. I guarantee that my usage will be 10x more with the Atrix than with my iPhone. What a bummer. And 2gigs is the most you can buy?
