Has anyone else tried to remove your texting package from the iPhone data bundle and add an unlimited family text package for $29.99?

I saw where one guy did, but I really need to do this and just wondered if anyone else was successful.

According to AT & T when I called to get the unlimited I couldnt do it because it doesn't count for the iPhones. But I have heard on here that if your primary line is not an iPhone you can put the unlimited family text on that one and it counts for all phones on your plan.

My primary line is my iPhone, and I do indeed have family unlimited text messaging for $29.99. The woman I spoke to, I took down her name and she noted on my account that she told me I could do this. I must have asked her 10 time if she was SURE I could have this plan.

Here's a screenshot from my account:



Yes, it shows iPhone + 200 because that's the lowest iPhone plan you can have. I had originally had the iPhone +1500 and was prepared to change it to iPhone + unlimited and then add unlimited to my daughters phone separately, but the AT&T rep actually SUGGESTED I reduce my iPhone plan to the minimum and then go with the $29.99 unlimited family plan.

You people text msgs TOO MUCH. 200 is plenty for me and I even use it to forward my work pager to my phone.

Probably, but once I figured out how to do AIM on the phone, unlimited texting became very important (since it goes through SMS).

My sister one time sent and received 20,000 texts in one month. Yes that's TWENTY THOUSAND. (Her average is between 10 and 15 thousand.)
Assuming she texted 24 hours per day, 30 days per month, that's one text message every 129.6 seconds (2.16 minutes). Seems fairly unlikely to me?
