Okay, I just got done at our AT&T store. My dad was going to upgrade his phone to the same phone he had, a nonsmartphone. He was using my upgrade. I am grandfathered into my 2GB plan. So, we couldn't upgrade unless I jump up to 3GB or down to 300MB (HA! Not happening, ie already used 800MB this month). I'm not sure if this is because a nonsmartphone user was using a smartphones upgrade, but, of it is smartphone to smartphone also, that means you guys can't upgrade your phones without going onto a tiered data plan. The store rep just learned this yesterday also.

Just passing info along.

ANOTHER thread on this? Good lord I hope someone will merge all of these into on massive AT&T type thread
I guess they're spreading them out to get a point across instead of having people make meaningless posts over & over that won't ever even be affected.

ONCE AGAIN, I'm not composing about the whole unlimited Data stuff. Im simply saying they have changed the way grandfathering works, so on your future upgrade if you use someone else's upgrade you may loose your grandfathered plan, whether it be unlimited, 200MB or 2GB.

Just upgrade & swap phones. Pay a pro-rated data plan for a month.

Only thing iPhone is missing is an expandable memory port! Come on Apple give us a microSD port already!

I don't know how you do it, I have the 2GB plan and I've streamed a whole bunch of YouTube videos, and GPS (sometimes at the same time) and web pages. I've used about 830MB.

I'm right at 3gb (unlimited data) with 1 day left. That's using a lot of wifi too.

*ty sir I stand corrected.

I've been on the Unlimited plan for quite a few years and each time I've upgraded my devices, the plan stays the same. I've even changed my corporate discount–known as the Foundation Account Number (FAN)–a couple of times.
