Remember when AT&T announced its ridiculous (or ridiculously awesome, depending on whom you ask) new data plans? The one where unlimited data would forever be gone? Yeah, well the unlimited option finally disappeared from the Apple iPad 3G today and we shed a single tear. However, for those who purchased the iPad prior to June 7, when the new data plans took effect, the unlimited data plan will be grandfathered into their plans when they receive their tablet computers if they haven’t already.
AT&T has officially said that while the option isn’t appearing on the iPad, further details will follow. I think I know what that means… “Hi, thank you for calling AT&T. If you’d like to speak to a real live human being, press zero and hold for 15 minutes. Then when your rep comes on, explain the situation and ask for the unlimited data plan. Wait another 12 minutes for the customer service rep to verify that your information is accurate. When the rep finally comes on and says it’s okay to add the plan to your iPad 3G service, wait another 10 minutes for the rep to finalize everything. But before we get started, if you’d like to participate in a brief survey after the phone call, press one…”
If you’re a data gobbler, I hope you bought your iPad before June 7!
