AT&T has decided to be a little less evil than usual today. It turns out that if you’re lucky enough to still have AT&T’s old unlimited data plan tied to your account, you’ll still be able to use that plan with the 4G LTE-compatible.
“We offer customers the flexibility to keep the iPhone data plans they already have or choose any of our individual or new Mobile Share plans,” said AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega. “We’re proud that more customers choose AT&T for iPhone than any other U.S. carrier and look forward to making iPhone 5 the newest addition to our lineup.”
There’s a bit of a catch though. While the unlimited data is in fact unlimited, your 4G LTE data will max out at 5GB before AT&T starts throttling the data speeds. Most customers won’t even come near 5GB of usage so it shouldn’t be much of a problem.
Verizon on the other hand isn’t being so nice. You can choose to keep the unlimited data plan on the new iPhone 5, but you’ll have to pay full retail price for the device without any carrier subsidies.
