Re: Unlimted data plan
*The 4s and SGS2"
ok had an individual plan with grand fathered unlimited data. used my upgrade credit to get the 4s..ordered from apple.com
last week added 2nd line, and bought the SGS at contract price $199.
this morning two questions came up: if i keep the SGS (and deactivate 4s) do i keep the unlimited DP? and what about the upgrade credit. and if/when i cancel the 2nd line would an EFT fee apply? (it shouldnt but one never knows, and i THINK it was my friend who got that going)
FYI, those who dont know me this kind of stuff gets me SO VERY ANXIOUS.. i am still shakey from it..
anyway, after speculating all morning with a friend and online forums i finally picked up the phone and called ATT. (since it dont matter what friend or onine says)i calmly explained the situation. the rep and i agreed that i could return the 4s to ATT, get the upgrade credit back, return and cancel out the 2nd line, and re-buy the SGS under contract price ($199(. (anyone see the problem?) didnt realize it until i was half way to ATT.. i can return the 4s to ATT i got it from apple.com and they require it be sent back within 30 days (which ends today). cant return apple.com to apple stores. whatever LOL..
so i get to ATT and explain the story all over again using my teddy charm Missy ATT here's what we can do:
-you cant use the upgrade credit, you lost that upgraded credit cuz it was used on the 4s (ok np, thats fair)
so because i had the SGS for 4 days (30 day return period) i can return it. and buy another one full price ($549).. cant buy the same one i had cuz its now considered "used" and they dont sell "used" phones. ok. so i asked when we deactivate the 4s and activate the SGS what happened to my grand fathered unlimited data plan (she looked puzzled and said it transfers to the new phone). I said it does? yes of course.. (the unlimited data plan is tied to me/the account and not the phone.... wow color me happy. and my original number that i had for years? she says we'll just switch out sim cards and the moves the number to the SGS. i'm thinking ok this is going way to well when do i get bad news about this.. oh asked about the EFT.. no cuz you are within the 30 days return period..
i figured this was all fair, esp since to keep the 2nd line and use both phones would cost me MORE than buying the SGS2 out of contract. i got to keep my number and most importantly the grand fathered plan! woo hoo..
i kept asking her your sure of this? she kept laughing and saying yes we know what we are doing LOL.. before leaving the store, we tested the SGS, web and test call.. all good..
when i got home the att telephone rep that i talked to this morning called me to see how i had made out.. i explained to her about how i forgot that whole mess where i bought the 4s and she agreed that was out of ther jurisdiction.
so i now i have:
a deactivated for 4s (not decided if i want to sell it, prolly not) tho if sold would cover the diff of the contract/uncontract price of the SGS..
an activated SGS2 with NO data, factory boxed (so the few settings and apps i had are gone), this means the launcher and theme) more importantly *NO CONTACTS OR CALENDAR AND NO ME.COM EMAIL* (this is FREAKING ME OUT!! in case you cant tell.. i am beyond freaking guys.. still shaking and ..
have contacts etc on my macbook, and apple's cloud
have nothing on google's cloud (ugh)
i'll have a lot of how do i do this questions in the coming days but *most importantly i need the contacts, cal and email on the SGS (supposedly i have directions to get contacts and cal from macbook to google cloud and directions to get me.com mail on android phone but i have not done this ever..)* the other thing driving me crazy is:
i want to turn off notify for every gmail i get.. i dont use gmail and just get spam on it.. thats why i am thinking of creating a new gmail (already done) and not give it to anyone just use for syncing etc.. and i want to know how to stop getting notified every time i get a messanger message on G+ mobile app..
i just need to say this for my own peace of mind.. i wont be relaxed until the contacts cal and email are set up. so i am
i am totally trusting all you guys and i hope, and pray youre right about how great android is... i have trust issues and so for me to be doing this is another reason i am freaked out!!!
