Optional AT&T Cellular Data Plan sign now

Attention AT&T

Cellular Data packages for smartphones, including the iPhone, should be an option decided upon by the customer, not forcibly added by your company just because it is believed that such a package is needed based on the phone used. The iPhone has an option to turn off Cellular Data. If it were so necessary to have the feature, why is there an option to turn it off, without even a lot of digging required?

Forcibly charging $15 per month to any customer who has an iPhone (or any other selected phone) only serves to make AT&T appear to be a greed-based company than a consumer-driven company. With several million iPhone users alone, is that $15 extra a month the only thing keeping you out of bankruptcy?

I can see the point to a data plan. I personally have an unlimited data plan. What i don't see the point to is making it a requirement on a phone where it's an optional feature. With no way of NOT having a data plan right now, you're charging people for something they might not need, or might not even know how to use to the extent that you're charging them for.

Why not have a "Pay-as-you-go" data plan of sorts. Maybe $1/10MB. It'd line up almost perfectly with the current $15/200MB/mo plan... giving people the option (there's that word again) of either sticking with the designated 200MB plan, or dropping to the pay per use plan if they don't come close to the 200MB limit. It'd also give those that do not see a need for a cellular data plan the option to have it, just in case it's needed, but not need to pay for it every month if it's not used.
