    Okay, so I've noticed AT&T has advertising for a Messaging and Data Unlimited plan, and it's available for my phone. They list it at $30.00 a month.

    Does anyone know if this is a charge in addition to my current data package? Has anyone tried it yet? I don't want to tack on an extra $30, but if I can replace my 2GB package with this, it would be awesome...

    Nevermind, got ahold of a live person, apparently it's only for non-smartphones. Grrr.

    How are you finding this? I looked at the normal services page, nothing. Is it advertised somewhere?

    Well recently the smart phone data plans have changed, I am only talking about the personal data plans. The old was $30 unlimited, but the new is %15 for 250mb and $25 for 2gb and if you go over during a billing cycle you can get an additional 1gb for $10. The $25 plan you can get a tethering option for an additional $20 a month, though I do not know if you get additional data, but since this is at&t I would say that you get no additional data.

    Now that said, those like myself that had the unlimited dataplan, though mine was on the iphone I was able to keep the unlimited data plan for $30 a month. Though they say I can not "tether".

    You can save money by using Google Voice app for free, unlimited texting. That's what I use, no problems sending or receiving texts to my friends, just paying $15 data plan.
