After just two months in the wild, AT&T is dropping the $29.99 unlimited data plan for new purchasers of the 3G-capable iPad.

The new, only-slightly-better-if-you-are-cheap, plan will run users $25 for 2GB of data transfer over 30 days. If an iPad user blows through their 2GB of data, they are charged another $25 and the 30-day timer resets itself.

Basically, new iPad owners pay $25 for 2GB of data, or 30 days — whichever comes first.

From AT&T’s press release:

For new iPad customers, the $25 per month 2 GB plan will replace the existing $29.99 unlimited plan. iPad customers will continue to pre-pay for their wireless data plan and no contract is required. Existing iPad customers who have the $29.99 per month unlimited plan can keep that plan or switch to the new $25 per month plan with 2 GB of data.
