I already reported this yesterday in another thread that has long since disappeared into a different page.
I suspect its going to be grandfathered for those who already have it and will stay in place until they upgrade to another phone. I think it will be applied to news customers or to current customers who upgrade.

I think they are beginning to realize that they are losing money with their unlimited plans especially since these new phones are so much more reliant on data. Coming from a BlackBerry, the amount of data the Thunderbolt uses is much higher than anything I have ever seen. I think that these tiered plans are going to be the way of the future for carriers and I am not going to like it.
Regardless, I'm locked in for another two years with unlimited so I'm a happy camper.

they know how many customers they need to support the investment and i would bet they are way short of that $ currently and will be for at least a year or two.
If they change it now,,, they will slow down customer usage and encourage other customers to go to a single pay system. it would also encourage other carries to use a single pay structure to gain customers...

I've never seen them change the terms of your contract after the 1 or 2 yr period expired. Everyone here will be grandfathered in and keep their contract so as long as they don't sign a new one to get another phone.

As for when tiered will get here. It was initially said in early March that it would be mid-summer but in the same sentence it was mentioned that “then that will give you a flavor of our tiered-pricing structure going forward” referring to the upcoming Thunderbolt launch. No one knows exactly what that means though. Will there be a $29.99 unlimited plan? No one knows.

I think that 4g will come back to be unlimited.
They just don't have all the implementation in place?
Or the other side is they are doing this to push TB sales because of public backlash for not getting the device out sooner?
