Re: PLEASE BRING BACK THE UNLIMITED DATA PLANS!!!

Right now I'm considering moving (family plan) to Verizon as I'm out of contract on AT&T, have the Verizon Droid already.
The pricing is identical but tipping the scales is the unlimited data on Verizon. Currently using 1.5-2gB of data on an Android phone (no idea why as I don't do streaming but Verizon confirmed that's the number) so 2gB should be enough. But, I hate getting nickeled and dimed every month. Paying $10 for 0.1gB of additional data isn't going to make me happy customer. Certainly I understand the need to cap data as streaming media is using an ever increasing portion of the service. But 2gB, is unreasonably low. 3gB for $25 and 5gB for $35, now we're talking.
Yesterday I cancelled my data card as I'm out of contract and AT&T decided to change me from unlimited to 5gB; had the service since 2006. I don't use near 5gB; tethering is an option as well as Clearwire. Although I'd rather have the unlimited data, the $70+ a month (service, taxes, fees) is in my pocket.
