Why in the world would that ever happen? I have never ever heard of anyone changing plans or swapping phones and AT&T 'accidentally' renewing their 2 year contract.
That's for Sprint and DirecTV.
Steve Gibson on password policies[grc.com]: I mean, I don't get this change it every eight weeks. ... It's not as if passwords are traveling by camel after they've been stolen, going to the bad guys, and so there's, like, some weird eight-week window, like, oh, we're going to change your password so that the stale password no longer works. ... And all this does is make IT people despised because users, who are not dumb, they think, why am I - why do I have to do this? What problem is this solving?
..and my cable provider (Cox). I had called to ask about why rates went up, blah blah blah, threatened to cancel and the CSR was saying "Well you'll have to pay your ETF of $50.." and I was like "WHEN THE HELL WAS I EVER IN CONTRACT?!?"
..apparently they "locked in" my rates (load of crap), at some point and I verbally agreed to it.
Haven't moved on since there's no one better in the area, and Verizon 4G LTE isn't deployed in my area (yet) either, so that's not even an option.
You may risk losing your unlimited data plan. It's nothing major. It's just the fact that at&t provisions iPhones and other smartphones differently. You'll just be moved from an iPhone unlimited plan to a Smartphone unlimited 4G plan.
i see what you did there

.I have never ever heard of anyone changing plans or swapping phones and AT&T 'accidentally' renewing their 2 year contract.
it's happened to me before with T-mobile - I was on a 500min plan with 5gb of data, and I changed to a 500min plan with 2gb of data - the data portion was an add-on, which should not have affected the date, but apparently the voice plan that I was currently on was not compatible with the 2gb data plan (wtf?) and they extended the contract by 2 years from the date of the data change, since I changed the voice plan (from 500 min to 500 min, which I didn't notice until later) - I wouldn't expect AT&T to have much better CS
I can COMPLETELY see that happening with a Cable or Home Phone company. But with cell phones (IN THE US) everything pivots on your contracts because that is the one piece of leverage we have...in that we get cheap subsidized phones. We don't have to pay $650 for the newest iPhone because we can just sign a new contract.'
Anyway...I think that is something AT&T is pretty straight forward with...yes, there CS is a pain...but I've never had an issue with moving around the features for which I am paying.
