The motoX does suck.  It's not even listed as one of those using the better lens technology etc.  So, that's interesting, but it's not at all comparing to any sort of market leader.


Thanks Matt, I actually posted this in the wrong thread, will continue this train of thought over here:

Apparently AT&T hasn't gotten the message that broadcast is dead.  I don't get it:

Check your mail boxes if you are eligible for the $40 to compensate you for AT&T being jacktastic. It's not much when compared to what real unlimited would be worth today, but it's something...

Those of you with data plan accounts might want to call AT&T about

free upgrades they are offering.

 

I just upgraded my 4GB plan to 6GB at no charge.  I use it for tethering.

Probably in response to VZW dropping their cost on data 45%. I now have 40g per month for just barely more than 20g cost.

Yes, exactly, Sam.

 

Verizon started it.  AT&T followed.

 

For ONCE the phone companies are giving customers more for their money.

Alf,

 

That's fantastic.  I take it you got to keep the deal even though they cancelled it?

 

Do you tether or is that a family sharing plan?  That's a lot of damn data.

What do people ask for to get these bonus upgrades? There's nothing on their website about this. We just changed to a 2GB family plan (from individual 300MB plans). Another 1+GB free would be nice. But I don't understand what I'm asking for ... what am I ordering from the secret menu? Do I have to pretend I'm canceling and hope AT&T doesn't call my bluff?

Here's the news story (one of many)

 

I was not certain if my plan was eligible.

 

I simply called AT&T and said that there were offers for free data upgrades.

 

The rep knew nothing about it, but looked up the prices and said that the 6GB plan

was the same price as the 4GB plan I was on.

 

So I was upgraded.

 

All you need to do, Dave, is call and ask if your plan is eligible for the free upgrade.

 

It may or may not be.  Please let us know how it works out.

Lot's of people praising T-Mo for this.

I'm not sure who price dropped first. I updated my plan on VZW around the 15th, effective on 11/11(when the bill cyle changes).

Ok thanks! I had missed that press release. My plan is listed so I'll try to give a call and get bumped to 3GB. I'll let you know if it works.

I'm in the classic double bind. I am on a grandfathered unlimited plan and routinely use 2GB or less. Being unlimited, I cannot use my device as a tether to my laptop. However if I leave the unlimited plan to go to a data capped plan, my usage would obviously increase, probably greatly, because of tethering. I currently play $75 for unlimited + my call plan. 6GB is $100. I can easily see myself getting to that level or higher with tethering. Ugh, guess I'll stay with unlimited just to avoid the hassle...

I haven't had time to check into it. I'm traveling this week so may not get to it until this weekend. But I'm definitely interested.

Not only did we get it, but it's a standard option in the AT&T app. Upgraded via the app. Easy peasy!

I've been on a 200MB plan from 2010 (I think) until about a month ago. I had to upgrade to 300MB, since travel and ios7 features pushed me over the edge too many months. Then my wife found we were outdated, and the base plan was 2GB for $10/mo *less* than we paid for 300 MB. (Also gave us unlimited text; we'd been on per-text plan for a while). And just after upgrading to to 2 GB, you alerted me to the even newer bump. So I'm at 7.5x the data I had two months ago, and I'm paying less every month. That's pretty great.

And it gets better: these plans include Personal Hotspot. I can tether my wifi iPad as needed for no additional cost. That will be useful, and practical with the 3GB plan.

Thanks! :)
