People Don’t Like AT&T

As it turns out, not so many people are thrilled about AT&T’s new smartphone plan changes. Just check out AT&T’s Facebook page. A few select quotes:

$25 for 2GB!? WHAT?! $10 for each additional GB!? Has AT&T lost their minds? I read where they claim that most users use only a few hundred MB a month and only like 1-2% use a lot of data. BS! In less than 2 days (TWO DAYS YOU IDIOTS @ AT&T!!) I’ve use close to 200MB just browsing around. I’ve played a game or 2. And that’s before I use A VNC client to remote desktop. Absolutly absurd. I hope AT&T either changes their mind or by the time my contract is up Verizon has the iPhone and is unlimeted. AT&T has last a customer. Pathetic.

I think that your decision to get rid of the unlimited plan is really going to hurt business. unlimited gives the customer piece of mind. I was actually thinking of switching to your company and getting an iphone once my contract expired but I won’t be now b/c of the fact that I wouldn’t have unlimited service.

Many others see it as I do… I’ve been yelling “Bait and Switch” since day one.

So people aren’t thrilled with the way AT&T is handling this new data situation? Shocker.

I do think that most people will be thrilled with this change, as it’s going to save them money. But what I want right now is to have my $30 unlimited plan and then pay more money to add tethering. See, that’s my real issue here. I want to give AT&T more money, and yet here I am, not able to do it without giving up my unlimited plan.

I think this just more proof that Apple is switching teams soon. Maybe even next week.

  1. I have a 2.5 year-old BlackBerry on AT&T. I was thinking of switching to the iPhone 4G in the next few weeks. Now I am thinking of switching to T-Mobile and Android. Thank you AT&T for helping me decide.

  2. I completely agree! AT&T is the only reason I don’t have an iPhone in my hand right now. If the iPhone comes out on Verizon this year, I will be the first in line.
