No one really knows yet.

3. Are you At&t users mad? (Throttled unlimited date plans)

No. I have unlimited data and at most use 800mb a month.

4. Any confirmed features that make it worth getting over the iPhone 4?

The assumed big change is the dual core chip.

5. Confirmed Pics of phone?

Nope.

AT&T will be throttling the top 6% [I believe] of their highest data users in an effort to make them curb their downloading/usage [I assume these users are all jailbroken/rooted phones doing bluetooth/usb tethering].

I think the top 6% use crazy amounts like 3 - 6 GB per month of data... which is alot through a slow ass device like a cell phone.

New here, but not to forums. Regardless, I'm guilty.

Until I know more details about the phone, I'm more excited about iOS 5.

If AT&T does something to piss off customers, Verizon is just 1 step behind and vice versa. Thanks to the "free market" and "healthy competition", both of the companies dropped all remaining business ethics in the name of profit margins. They are 2 different companies on paper. In reality both of them are the same gang, that goes by 2 different names.

Well, technically Verizon already did by no longer offering their unlimited data plans. Now, if Verizon also throttles high data users after already making revisions to no unlimited data plans AT&T and VZW might as well merge.

Verizon started throttling 6 months ago.

I'm waiting for the next iPhone, and I was hoping for sooner rather than later. My 2 year old 3GS's external speaker has completely died, and it sucks. So no ringer, text alert, email alert, game sounds, speakerphone, music or audio from videos/movies, etc. But I don't want to buy a new one right now with the next gen coming out shortly. A few more months of hassles I suppose....
