AT&T to allow unlimited data for current iPad 3G orders

updated 03:40 pm EDT, Fri June 4, 2010

Deadline remains June 7th

AT&T will allow people with currently unfulfilled iPad 3G orders to get unlimited data plans, the carrier has stated through its Facebook page. While the company has previously guaranteed that anyone with an iPad 3G by June 7th will be able to renew unlimited data, the issue has been murky until now for people who only have a unit on order. Apple has had difficulty meeting demand for the device, to the point that online orders are only shipping in seven to 10 days.

There is no explanation yet as to how some iPads will be authorized for unlimited data while others are switched over to one of two capped plans. A $15 plan will cover just 200MB of data, while $25 will pay for 2GB. The unlimited option is priced at $30, but is being officially terminated as of the 7th.

    Huh

    Won't be buying a 3G model then. Not about to feed the AT&T monster subscription+$/MB just because they have overstretched their network.

    Agreed

    This nonsense made my decision to buy the Wifi only model too.

    3G Sch3G

    How would they know? Of course, you must activate and continue to fork over—non-stop—$360/year to maintain your unlimited status, I suppose. Over a 2-year period, you would spend enough for a 64GB wifi plus change.

    ATT.........

    ATT has the most mobile users, and apple is about to release a crazy beast on monday, i don't blame them for doing this. 2 gigs is a lot, i mean a seriously a lot of data, and that's download only.... Can you imagine how long it would take to transmit a 2 gig file via 3G?
