The Verizon iPhone 4 just two weeks away, and there looms a large cloud of "non-exclusive" over AT&T. Now AT&T must compete on both a level of service on top of having one of the premier smartphones on the market.
With AT&T having taken away its unlimited data option, and Verizon offering it for $30, it seems that competition has done what it is supposed to and now AT&T could be bringing its old plan back from the dead.
AT&T isn't making anything official yet about unlimited data coming back, but the AP reports that a couple of customers phoned into customer service and threatened to cancel to move to Verizon.
The two customers mentioned in the story had previously been on the unlimited plans, and AT&T allowed them both to switch back to the $30 unlimited option. Other customers who tried the same thing, but had never been on the unlimited plan in the past, were unsuccessful in getting the option.
AT&T's only comment was, "We handle customers and their situations individually, and we're not going to discuss specifics."
