So yes, I think they are trying to force people out of older grandfathered plans, but my plan was less than a year old so there was no real impact for me.
No, they cant change your grandfathered data plan unless you agree/sign saying you wish to move to another data plan. The LTE unlimited data plan gets throttled after 5GB instead of 3GB... so its better.

This.

Something can always go wrong so make sure you double check after you upgrade! If you lose your unlimited data plan, you can always get it back if you call 611. As long as you can "prove" that you

1.) Used to have unlimited
2.) It was removed without your consent

UGH!!! so when I go to upgrade and get to the final page it says the total cost for the phone is 299 instead of 199....why is that, and how do I get it for the 199 price. I'm on a premier account.

nope, I was wrong...my new plan says unlimited 4g LTE data for 30$. that was coming from my old unlimited iPhone data plan for the same price.

If the bands match up just go on AT&T and upgrade his line and select the phone. You'll have to get it unlocked though. unless you're using go phone, then you're fine.

do i ask for it unlocked then or just do it myself when i get home. and i decided on straight talk which uses atnt towers so my reception will still be good and has unlimited data. on atnt go phone its like 50$ for unlimited yet u sitll have to add a 20 $ data plan for 200 mb lol ! such a rip

AT&T does not sell unlocked phones. And they won't supply unlock codes for 10 months after the phone's release. Your best bet is to buy an unlock code for around $20. eBay, from a seller with a good rating, is probably your safest bet (or another website, if they have a good rep).
