In response to questions posed at the AllThingsD conference today, AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega indicated that the company is exploring the idea of data plans that are shared across lines. "Once you have so many devices that you're carrying, you may want a shared plan. The more focus groups we do, the more we think that may be the way," he said. The Wall Street Journal's Walter Mossberg then asked, "So do you have a shared plan?" De la Vega responded, "We're working on it." De la Vega indicated that more information would be available about such a plan soon. Verizon Wireless has already indicated that it may offer shared data plans in the future.

I wonder if shared data plans max out at 2GB too, them thinking it would be enough.
The Majority vs The Minority
The next plan up is 5GB for 60 or 50 bucks depending on if your device is 3G or 4G.
And WIFI is everywhere... I mean, it's pretty hard to find no wifi (though some are secured networks).
That is all.
getting to the point where some may say "just forget about data"
