Default AT&T Doesn't Make Same Mistake as Verizon

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.macworld.com/article/1167751/atandt_announces_data_sharing_for_mobile_devices.html#lsrc.rss_main' target='_blank'>http://www.macworld.com/article/116...l#lsrc.rss_main</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"When Verizon Wireless announced its new shared-data plans in June, it should have enjoyed a big advantage over its arch-rival, AT&amp;T."</em></p><p><img height="379" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1342658035.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="571" /></p><p>Pooling data is a great idea, and one that many wanted, but they didn't want to be forced into it as Verizon was planning to do. AT&amp;T at least is making their pooling plans optional. Choice is always better, but only if it is truly your choice! What are your thoughts on this misstep on Verizon's part and the resulting plans from AT&amp;T?</p>

It makes sense for us, with two iPhones and two iPads. We'll save about $20, with the same data amount, but unlimited voice minutes and text. If we downgrade our data bucket, we'll save quite a bit more. It's about time ...

I checked with AT&T yesterday, and their response was still "coming soon." No specific dates, and they said that they still have not received training on selling and managing the new accounts (within a nearby store, anyway). I've calculated that based on our current usage we can save at least $50-60 monthly using the shared data plan "bucket."
