Despite the fact that AT&T officially jumped on board the iPhone tethering bandwagon last year with the release of iOS 4 -- a full year after Apple first added the capability with iOS 3! -- many jailbreak users have been content to use the $20 MyWi app with their unlimited data plans. Now those days may be coming to an end.
Thursday is Verizon iPhone day, and AT&T is celebrating with a tempting offer that may keep many of their iPhone customers out of Big Red’s clutches -- a new, free calling feature called AT&T Messaging Unlimited with Mobile to Any Mobile Calling. The only catch? You need to have (or add) unlimited text messaging.
As we all wait patiently for Tuesday’s announcement from Verizon, additional details have surfaced over the weekend which indicate the carrier could offer unlimited data plans on the iPhone -- all while pulling up to 6.5 million customers away from rival AT&T.
