So what's the latest on the data plans? Any news on changing them up? We don't have one on our phones but were thinking of upgrading now before any plan changes happen because of the release.

Im guessing not -- otherwise it would be done in Cupertino.

I am not sure it will affect AT&T folks. We are on the unlimited plan yet we don't use it that heavily so the base plan is ok for us. Most of our use is phone based with a little texting.

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ready for an iPhone with Verizon. Today alone, I had 3 calls go straight to voice mail without the phone ringing, even though I have at minimum 4 bars in my house.

Me, too. I honestly don't understand why not. They would sell billions of them and we could all have one!

Rumors are that Verizon will stop the "unlimited" data when they do the iPhone, but will grandfather it if you already have "unlimited" data.

This timeline goes along with AppleStore employees not getting vacations late this month, and early February.
[www.appleinsider.com]

This may also-maybe coincide with the announcement of the new iPad2 available on Verizon, but that would cause a rush for people to return their new iPad christmas presents, so, maybe later. The last week of Jan, and the first week of Feb would be late enough to keep returns to a minimum. Hmmm-the more I talk to myself about this, the more I realize, Apple would wait til after the Verizon melee, to do the iPad2 since the stores will be swamped.

Hmmm, timing may lead to a Verizon/iPhone SuperBowl ad?

Hope this is true. We only get Verizon at our house, so we've missed the iPhone. The information that Ken posted about grandfathering in unlimited data makes me wonder if I should switch to that this weekend.

Might be worth it---as long as it doesn't affect your upgrade status.

All of you, please go with Verizon so my iPhone will work during the last 23 months of my AT$T contract.

We're due new phones with Verizon at the end of the month so all I want to see is the plan cost,
the iPhone cost is not really a concern, the plan is what eats your money.

Oh yeah . . .
Based on current structure it's probably not likely they'd let you use their iPhone with a basic/non-data plan like I have now . . .

But for those who like their iPhones, it means they can now get reception too.

I think that people will just see what verizon's network is made of. When 3-5 million iPhones hit it at the same time things will get shaky.

I'll have to learn not to ask "do you have ATT" after the third dropped call, but to consider the possibility the problem might be on my end. Minor adjustment. I'll still have signal.
