Secret AT&T Unlimited Plan to Keep iPhone customers

With Verizon now carrying the iPhone and offering unlimited data plans, it seems that AT&T is quietly allowing customers to revert back to unlimited data plans in an effort to keep them from running off to Verizon.

AT&T stopped offering unlimited data plans last summer, switching to two limited plans: 200MB for $15 per month or 2GB for $25 per month. Going above that limit costs you $10 per GB. It is reported that AT&T is now allowing subscribers who previously had an unlimited data plan to switch back.

Jose Argumendo, of Brentwood, N.Y., says he uses 4 to 8 GB of data per month due to video and audio streaming services such as Pandora. He said he and a friend were able to switch back to an unlimited plan recently after they called AT&T’s customer service and threatened to go to Verizon. The unlimited plan costs $30 per month.
