Bait and Switch

It's blatenly obvious that T is going to take the opportunity to try to convert grandfathered people into capped versions by upselling them on some crap. If it means they only convert 10%, its a 10% win. By making it difficult:

1. People may just not bother to call and activate, T: WIN, no more network usage
2. People call and convert them to shared plan: T: WIN, no more unlimited
3. People call and get activated: T: Neutral They are simply providing what they should have in the first place.

I will never give up my unlimited plan. I don't even need it anymore since I work form home. But buckets o data don't work for me. So I'll just keep my unlimited plan as long as a I can.

How quickly everyone forgets. AT&T had capacity issues with the iphone from the very first release. They're still trying to unlive that experience.

Given that iphones consume more data than any other, and each successive generation consumes more than its predecessor, somebody has to apply the brakes to curb the i-ego crowd from once again bringing the network to its knees.

There is nothing blatent about it.
