I wonder if at&t is doing this because iphone users can now stream netflix because of the ipad app ported to iphone
Since I do a lot of calling (and I have a Skype subscription) - this sounds very attractive to me. But only a few days later AT&T showed us the end of unlimited data.
The era of unlimited wireless data, which fed the growing lust for the iPhone and other smart devices, is coming to an end.
AT&T announced Wednesday that its $30 unlimited monthly data plan will no longer be available for new smart phone accounts starting Monday, the day Apple is expected to unveil its next generation iPhone.
Most industry analysts believe AT&T's decision presages a wave of similar actions by competitors Verizon Wireless, Sprint and T-Mobile, all of whom declined to comment.
That was in this morning's online edition of the S.F. CHRONICLE....

All in all, the combination of (a) forthcoming 4G networks; (b) devices that stream multimedia content as a primary function; and (c) shift of voice traffic to data networks means that users will be charged for what they eat.

This needs merged with the ongoing thread already about this.

Anyone reading this thread on AT&T with a Milestone?
I've got a Milestone on AT&T and I'm under my parents' family plan. I'm considering signing up for unlimited data before June 7th.
Fortunately for me, the last phone I bought contracted through AT&T was a Motorola V400, so I should technically qualify for the $10/month unlimited data plan instead of the $30/month smart phone plan as long as I stay under the radar. My mom has had an unlocked Nokia smart phone on AT&T for the past couple of years and AT&T has only been charging her $10/month for unlimited data...
Does this sound like a good idea or am I just fooling myself thinking I can lock in to an unlimited data plan for a super cheap price?
