    I made a thread regarding dumb vs smart phone useage a while back..

    This one is just curious as to how many dumbphone users which from what I'm reading.. may not be grandfathered in.. be limited to 200 mbs..

    While the smart phones data is getting a lot of attention.. I want to bring some things to attention..

    First.. are dumb phones gunna keep an unlimited data option?

    If they do.. what happens when people with dumb phones abuse the crap about of data? if people are doing 300 mbs on a dumb phone.. they have to choose between 25$ a month and 15$ a month.. sure the 25$ largely goes to waste.. but, the 15$ isn't enough..

    Plus.. I doubt people with smart phones would be happy with dumb phone users using more data for less money if they keep dumbphone unlimited.

    I know that when I officially first switched, I had to move from their MEdia Net plan to the smartphone data plan ($30/mo), so I'm guessing that you're right about having to move to the new plans.

    There is no way liberal smartphone users with 0-100 mb of usage a month are going to be happy when they realize they are paying 5$ more a month than someone who gets 300-400 mb of data..

    So.. I wonder how long until there is a data cap on dumb phones?

    at the moment there has been NO mention of ANY cap being added to dumbphones..

    After reading over again.. it never mentioned anything..

    The only problem I can forsee.. is now.. they can push anyone using to much data with an "unkown imei" to the 25$ plan now :/..

    I mean it is perfect justification..

    If you try to say "But, I am grandfathered in" they can say "that was on X phone.. your using an unlocked device which uses too much data now"..

    With that said.. at&t has never been bound to logic.
