Sunday is Last Chance to Get Unlimited Data Plan for iPad 3G which Goes Away on Monday, June 7th

Say goodbye to our little friend, the unlimited 3G data plan for the iPad 3G + Wifi. Yes, it’s true, less than a month after rolling it out, AT and T has announced that they will be replacing the unlimited 3G data plan for iPad with a new, limited 3G data plan, known as the AT and T DataPro plan, effective Monday, June 7th. And the current $15.00 for 250MB per month plan has been reduced to 200MB per month under the new AT and T DataPlus plan. This means that if you are thinking of buying an iPad 3G, now is the time to do it, so that you can sign up for the unlimited data plan by Sunday.

Everything You Wanted to Know About the AT and T 3G Data Plan for the iPad 3G – with Lots of Screen Shots!

Yes, we now have a 3G iPad, and yes, we will post our reviews of it, and about transferring data from one iPad to another, and about the differences between the iPad original and iPad wifi + 3G. But for now, we wanted to quickly answer the question burning on everyone’s mind: just what is it like to sign up for AT&T’s no contract 3G data plan, and is it really as easy as they claim, and does it work! We’ve included lots of screen shots.

AT and T Drops Lawsuit Against Verizon’s “There’s a Map for That” Ads

In response to Verizon’s “There’s a map for that” ad campaign, which riffed on the iPhones “There’s an app for that” campaign, iPhone mothership AT and T sued Verizon. The primary legal basis for AT and T’s claims was that the Verizon “There’s a map for that” map showed Verizon’s 3G coverage compared to AT and T’s 3G coverage in the same area – AT and T’s 3G coverage in those areas was much more limited (naturally, otherwise Verizon wouldn’t be using it in an ad campaign), and AT and T was complaining that they still have voice and data services in those areas (just not 3G) and so viewers could be mislead into thinking that AT and T didn’t have any coverage (not just 3G coverage) in the regions depicted.
