Default [Q] Difference between these AT&T Unlimited data plans?

So I was reading that if you have an Unlimited data plan and get throttled when you reach 5GB you can change your data plan to one of the other unlimited data plan options and you'll stop being throttled for another 5GB. I see that there's three other unlimited data plan options for me on the website. Does anyone know what the actual difference is between these? Has anyone tried what I said? Does it work? Thanks!

The first one is unlimited data AND text messages for $50.

The second one is unlimited data BUT only 200 text messages for $35.

The third arrow is unlimited data only add on for non lte phones. Text message plan separate.

The final arrow is unlimited data add on for lte phones. Text message plan separate.


So it all depends on how many text you send a month. You could hurt yourself.

The 3rd arrow says LTE as well.

I bet the third is for phones, and the fourth is for tablets.

It is because OP is grandfathered into unlimited data.
