Interesting, the Amazon has no option to keep your existing data service. AT&T and their strong arming of customers! They are on a roll to get rid of their unlimited data plans, even for the existing unlimited data customers.
God, am I gald they did not get the T-Mobile merger. Some "better value for the customer with the merge" they are talking about! Thieves! BS.
Stay away from AT@T. Note (version of) will be available for Verizon soon enough.
Not a fanboy of anything. I went with VZW for their LTE and their network. I got 4G of data for the price of 2G and a great phone at a great price.
As far as the AT& T and unlimited data is concerned, neither me nor my wife (she is on ATT) never go over couple hundred MB per month, but keeping my wife's data plan is a matter of principle, not the need. AT& T is pissin a lot of customers off because of a few percent of data pigs... Which is why I think their behavior is not customer friendly and it is great they did not get the merger approved. The customers would lose.
I still have my unlimited plans, and like you rarely if ever go over. You don't live to far from me and I grew up close to Red Bank. And because of corporate discounts, AT&T is cheaper for that and some other reason. No carrier has 4g service by me, so at this time, their hspa+ is much faster then VZW or Sprint. I didn't nor doubt I would get the Note because have an import SGS2, and quite frankly the size difference which is basically the only difference between the two.
BTW did you see the $99 deal VZW has on the Rezound? That is a great deal. And if you get it at Best Buy, you get a $50 gift card on top of it.
