Question Data Plan for Samsung Captivate? :)

Hello , okay I currently have an unlimited data plan on AT&T for my family. I'm going to upgrade my LG Vu, to a Samsung Captivate I'm worried about something though, If I upgrade to the Captivate will I be able to keep the same unlimited data plan? Or will I have to change into the new data plan?

Thank you for your time

You should be able to keep your unlimited data. If you are worried about it, just make sure you reiterate this when you are making the upgrade.

Once you're on unlimited data, you are able to switch types of phones and still keep that unlimited plan. For example, switching from Blackberry to Android to WP7.

It depends what unlimited plan you're on..if you're on the old medianet family unlimited for $10/mo you can pretty much forget that one..of course if you return the device you can get it back

No, you will lose your unlimited. You have a "feature" phone, Captivate is a "smart phone". If you had a smart phone already with unlimited (iPhone, BB, etc), you'd be able to keep it.

Thanks for the info
I'm very happy with my Captivate, and I ended up changing to the 2GB data plan
