I have grandfathered unlimited, and do still try to use wifi when possible. I don't feel like "I have unlimited so I should use as much as possible." No, wifi is not guaranteed to be faster than cellular data (several access points I've used have a 1.5mbps line backing them up), but it's (almost) always been plenty fast, there's just no reason not too, and I figure people that do that keep speeds higher for when I do use cellular data.

much faster home network..?? Not everyone has FAST dsl or FAST broadband in their home. Sometimes 3G is faster than a home wifi network… You of all people should know this…Why use 3G when you can use your MUCH faster home network when possible?
AT$T is forcing me to pay $30 a month for unlimited data just so that i can have this iPhone… They did not give me an option to not get data, so the way i see it, if you are going to force me to pay for a data plan, then i am forced to use their data 24/7.
If i use Wifi for 15 days out of the month, then thats $15 that i gave to AT$T for free for data that i did not use…
Im sure the ones out there are gonna bash me for saying what i said, but thats the way i feel and thats my opinion.. The more those guys use wifi, the more data there is for me lol…
I stopped by an AT&T store to pick up an accessory, and casually mentioned throttling to the store manager. He said that the throttle point is a partly a function of your account value to AT&T.
