Apple and ATT being sued over iPad 3G data plan bait-and-switch

iPad 3G at&t data plan

Remember that AT&T iPad 3G data plan bait-and-switch that we were so upset about a few weeks ago? Well, it turns out that many people felt the same way as there’s now a class-action lawsuit filed against Apple and AT&T due to the situation. Specifically, the plaintiffs in the nationwide suit claim that both Apple and AT&T “deceptively promoted” that they could start and stop the iPad 3G plan at any time, and switch between the unlimited plan and the 250MB plan. Now customers who opt for the unlimited plan cannot switch back to a limited plan, or start and stop service at will, as originally promised.

ATT wants to charge you for letting them use your broadband connection that you already pay for

ATT 3G microcell ripoff

You know, back when announced that calls made through their 3G MicroCell device would count against your minutes, we were kind of appalled that they’d charge for a device that helps them appropriately cover their service area, and then charge you for using said device to make calls, when the device routes its data through your home broadband connection that you already pay for. We were appalled, but not surprised.

However, today we are absolutely shocked at the latest tidbit of 3G MicroCell related news, as it has now come out that AT&T is also going to charge data used through the device (again, data that is going through your home broadband connection that you already pay for,) against your AT&T wireless data plan. Think about that for a moment, and let it sink in. AT&T, because they seemingly can’t get their act together and provide proper coverage, needs to sell the 3G MicroCell as a means to make up for the difference. You pay $150 to buy the MicroCell, which improves the signal in your home because it uses your much faster broadband connection. That should be the end of the story—but it’s just the beginning.

ATT video on iPhone 4 upgrades and data plans

We broke down the iPhone 4 AT&T upgrade pricing along with the method for easily checking your iPhone upgrade eligibility for you a few days ago, but we figured we’d share the video that AT&T put together on the subject as well. Basically, it’s that odd “Seth the Blogger Guy” from AT&T talking about what you can expect as either a current or new customer as it pertains to iPhone pricing and eligibility, as well as the new DataPlus and DataPro plans.


AT&T introducing new data plans: DataPlus and DataPro

AT&T DataPlus DataPro plansAT&T has decided that unlimited data is no longer something that they want to offer to new customers, and on June 7th, it goes away for good. Now, if you area already on the $30 per month unlimited data plan, you are certainly able to keep it, provided you never move away from it. Once you change your data plan, you can never go back to unlimited. How’s that for a means to lock in current customers? Continue on for a detailed look at the new AT&T data rate plans.
