Replying to: Really AT&T? by Jellz
This is BS for two reasons. First, with the 2 GB data plan, you could get 3 GB for $35 with overages, which are $10 for each 1 GB. So the 2 GB for $25 turns into 3 GB for $35, 4 GB for $45, 5 GB for $55, etc. It's what's great about the 2 GB plan, you just pay $25, and if you go over it's not a killer rate like 10 cents per 1 MB or something, you just make your own higher data plan.
Second, at that rate on a two-year contract, you're paying AT&T $840 over the course of your contract. So you pay $700 for the tablet, then are obliged to pay $840 more (not counting any kind of taxes or surcharges, or overages even).
Again, bad move AT&T. Bad move. The moment I first saw the Jetstream, I was like "This is my tablet, I'm going to get it."
Then I saw the price tag and went through all this discovery and was heart-broken
