You know that data plan you’ve been using on your iPhone 3G?  The one that isn’t standard for the iPhone 3G? Well, AT&T knows, as evidenced by this nice email it sent to one of its customers:

Subject: Important information regarding your iPhone 3G

The new AT&T – Your world. Delivered.

Our service records indicate that you are using an iPhone 3G with a data plan designed for other devices.

To avoid unexpected data overage charges and enable Visual
Voicemail, please contact your telecom manager, or an AT&T
representative at 1-800-331-0500.

Thank you for choosing wireless from AT&T. We appreciate your business.

AT&T Customer Service

Translation: "Instead of using a much better and faster data plan on our network, please default to the sub-par service that we intended for your sleek, expensive, high-profile convergence device.  Thank you."
