My wife and I are on a Verizon family plan and upgraded just before the cutoff, so we still have our unlimited data plans (Lucky day!). However, everyone we know and talk to is on Verizon, so we can easily share 400 minutes a month. It's funny, I need unlimited data, but verizon wants to use unlimited talk and texts as bargaining chips. If any of you ATT-ers are in the same boat, I truly hope ATT doesn't do this to you!! :/ Good luck all!
dude, 07 Aug 2012everyone in america has had this for 10 years.Not anymore. Hence this special new thing....its sad really
Funny to read this comments... In HK your operators provide a better service at a lower price... Ireland too... Wow really? HK is just one Town... It's a bit different to offer service for a town vs. one of the largest countries on the planet

In finland is 3 mobile operators.
1 has 512 kb unlimited mobile internet for 5 euros/month.
2 has 1mb for unlimited for 5 euros.
3 has 1mb with 20 gb traffic for 10 euros.
ATT is not the first carrier to do this. They're now joining Verizon with this initiative. I'm not ATT, but if you are eligible for an upgrade, make sure you do so before they roll out these plans. Verizon's data share plan would have cost me approx. $50 more per month for a lot less data. Yikes!
in Romania we have Shared Data Plans (Combo Internet) for more than 1 year...it's sad for the US users not to have something like that untill now...as for you, Canadian people...maybe it's because you're richer than the others :)) ...

Vodacom in South Africa have had this for a few years already. One 3G data plan and can have up to 5 sims linked to it so all your devices gets it data from the one bundle.
Why the news seems like we just landed on Mars when similar share data plans have been available through many carriers in Hong Kong....for as low as US$7 for 1GB per month?
