I read other forums about this and yes they do add the data plan if you are postpaid.
that is the most insidious thing the cell phones companies are doing
The ATT network will see that its a Smartphone and automatically attach the $30 3gb data plan to the account. You will get a text letting you know that the device requires the data plan btw.
OK thanks...I will pass on this then.
Pass for the same reason. AT&T is so evil.
I upgraded my in-laws phones from feature phones to Pantech Crossover (android) I got from Amazon gold box last BF and knock on wood they still have yet to be charged for data. Before I put the sim card in I made sure the mobile data is completely shut off and wifi is on. They are mostly home so they use the phone (email, YouTube) to full extent and when outside they just don't have data.
May need to visit frys as my dinosaur phone (old palm) is dying. Hope it can be unlocked cheaply. BTW - When I had ATT they will do same you need data crap but would cancel if I call them. Had to do this every other month or so and finally I just cancelled them.
