AT&T to Allow Grandfathered Unlimited iPad Data Plans to Transfer to iPad 2
Posted on March 7, 2011 by eli courey
Engadget is reporting that AT&T has confirmed that iPad users who are currently on the discontinued unlimited data plan will be able to transfer the plan to the iPad 2. Last June AT&T discontinued their unlimited data plan for the iPhone and iPad and switched to cheaper tiered data plans, but said customers would be able to keep the unlimited plan even when switching to a new iPhone. With the announcement of the iPad 2, there have been questions whether AT&T would do the same for iPad customers. But if this report is correct, it looks like they will.
If you were lucky enough to snag one of those coveted unlimited data plans with your original AT&T iPad, you won’t have to toss it when upgrading next week. The carrier has confirmed to us that those who currently have the aforementioned plan will be able to keep it on their account when upgrading to the iPad 2, which in turns gives you no reason whatsoever to turn down the opportunity.
