To many, the iPhone can do wrong. But some speculate that its success could result in an end to unlimited data plans.
Millions of people at any given moment are surfing the Web and doing other things on their iPhones that hog bandwidth. It may – according to an article in the Wall Street Journal – eventually be too much for AT&T’s network. Thus, making you pay for how much data you gather might be a necessary evil.
But other sites like the Christian Science Monitor debunk that line of thinking, mentioning industry scuttlebutt that AT&T is still battling to keep its exclusive rights to the iPhone. There’s another rumor that there could be a drop in the price of the data plan when the newest version of the smartphone is released in the next couple of months.
