Yet another reason to not get an iPad.

For new iPad customers, the $25 per month 2 GB plan will replace the existing $29.99 unlimited plan. iPad customers will continue to pre-pay for their wireless data plan and no contract is required. Existing iPad customers who have the $29.99 per month unlimited plan can keep that plan or switch to the new $25 per month plan with 2 GB of data.

Oh bummer! I knew I should of rushed out and got me one of those nifty things ;) Sounds like a bad deal for $25 and only 2G of usage out of it a month :(

Nifty? What exactly does it do that a laptop doesn't? In fact a laptop does much more.

I was having fun with it, my BIL has one and I rather use a laptop instead if I had one :laugh: I am not into the Ipod either ;)

How much/what kind of usage are we talking about to reach 2g?

You could easily hit 2GB in a day just surfing the web and streaming music/video.

I actually checked my past 8 months of iPhone data usage and I average 180 megs a month.

I anticipate most of that is email. I check 4 different accounts with it. One is fairly high volume (200+ messages a day not counting spam).

I actually did a random sample of my iPhone data usage and I average 180 megs a month.

iPhone != iPad. Remember, the iPad is meant to stream HD video.

Oh, sorry. I can't keep track of all the anti-Apple/AT&T stuff that gets posted.
