AT&T, Unlimited Data & The Truth

Ok, this is getting ridiculous. AT&T has gone off the deep end here. They are removing the unlimited data from smartphones, including the iPhone, and the iPad. If you already have unlimited, you can keep it. But is that it? Is it all that simple? No. There are a lot of questions I had and here’s what I’ve found as answers.

New plan changes:

DataPlus – 200 MB of data for $15 per month. If you use more than 200 MB, you’ll receive an additional 200 MB of data usage for $15, replenished as often as necessary during the billing cycle.

DataPro – 2 GB of data for $25 per month. If you exceed 2 GB, you’ll get an additional 1 GB of data for only $10. Each time an additional 1 GB is used up during a cycle, you will automatically receive another 1 GB at the same low price.

This is just the beginning of it all. 200MB of additional data for $15 but the other plan is only $10 for another 1GB (1,000MB). This is just stupid. [Read more…] – Canadians Fight Back Against High Data Plans From Rogers

If you haven’t heard, Rogers, the Canadian iPhone provider, recently announced their voice and data plans for the iPhone and Canadians aren’t too happy. The biggest problem is there is no unlimited data. If you are Canadian you can sign here or you can view the petition here. There is also a blog. Here are some comments from the petition:

– I waited a year to get a legit iPhone and now I’ll be waiting until our third carrier launches after the spectrum auctions….
– I’m going to stick with your competition (aka Bell) until you decide that your customers are important and deserve to be treated fairly. I guess this means no iPhone for me but at least I’ll be able to eat. Thanks a bunch for screwing up a great product! [Read more…]

iPhone Wiper Tool

With the 3G iPhone soon upon us and some very convincing rumors of sweet new features (see our News Page)…I have a feeling many of you (31% according to our poll) will be selling your iPhones and upgrading to the 3G iPhone. Well, before you do, you may want to consider wiping your iPhone. The iPhone Wiper tool allows you to completely wipe all information off of your iPhone. We have all heard the rumor of how someone who purchased a previously owned iPhone was able to pull off some of the previous owner’s information (even after a restore). So, to avoid any possibility of that happening to you, you might want to consider wiping it. Below is the ReadMe from the .zip file on how to wipe your iPhone. You can get the app HERE. [Read more…]
