AT&T – Details on iPad 3G Data Plans

Share This:


AT&T has put out a PDF document outlining details of its data plan pricing for the iPad WiFi + 3G.

There’s not much that we didn’t already know in the document, but one point Gizmodo picked up on is that you’ll have free access to AT&T’s 20,000 plus WiFI hotspots while you’ve got a data plan active.

Here are some of the key details in the AT&T doc – again, many of which we already knew from Apple’s announcements:

— No long term contract required

— Two options for monthly plans: $14.99 for 250MB or $29.99 for unlimited access

— Managing a data plan and turning plans on and off:

How do I manage my 3G plan for iPad? Can I turn service off or change my plan? Once you sign up for iPad 3G data service, you can add to or cancel your domestic plan at any time – no penalty. For domestic plans, if you do not cancel, your service will automatically renew every 30 days to provide a more seamless data experience on an ongoing basis. For example, if you activate service on May 9, your service will automatically renew 30 days later with the same plan. If you do make a change, a new 30-day window begins.

— You can check on and track your data usage via the Settings app on the iPad – at Settings > Cellular Data.

— If you’re on the lower, 250MB plan the iPad will generate alerts when you are about to reach your limit.  Three alerts are given – at 20%, 10%, and zero. With each alert, you can choose to add more data or wait until later. If you exceed the data cap, the plan will expire.

You can check out the full details in AT&T’s PDF.
