hey all
this is a general question for any carrier you may be with.

can some one answer if they know if this is true or not?

so I was told by ATT customer service that you are now required to always have a data plan if you use any smart phone w/any carrier at all times!

meaning if I buy a Nexus or HTC for cash and want to use it on there network I have to always have a data plan, that it's mandatory!

They said all carriers are now like this? Is this true?

The reason they gave me is because supposedly they need a data plan @ all times to be able to received phone updates! BS, hello! WiFi!!!

Can you all please provide input! Thanks fellow Geeks!

I don't know if it's official, but the major carriers have been doing this for awhile anyway...

that is crazy that they can do that! cost too much for data and txting. You pay $50 for a plan w/ATT (give or take) and then you pay $30 for 3G, then another $15 for texting! RIDICULOUS!

I keep reading that this plan will be cheaper but is it?

I pay for 3 ATT phones
Family plan for 750 minutes, free night and weekend
2 iphones 2G + $40 for data for both (works fine!!!)
1 Motorola piece of crap.

We pay $125 per/month for all this.
