    I'm looking to upgrade my lines (two basic phones) to smartphones. Does AT&T allow me to upgrade to a smartphone pick 2gb data than switch back to basic phones dropping the data? I know verizon did up until 8/24/14. Thanks!

    Sadly no. Most (if not all) smartphone plans require a data package.

    No I'm asking if I can change it back to a basic line dropping data after I upgrade them.

    Yeah I know.. I was saying I don't think so since you'll sign an agreement with the phone.. And the data plan. Therefore they'll require you to have a data plan on that line of service... That's why they make you add data to it when upgrading to a smartphone.

    You can change your data plan at anytime you want. If you have a basic phone they will drop the line down to a basic phone plan. People do it all the time. With share plans you though you can the access fee no matter what. Its the older plans where this was useful.

    Changing a data plan from 5 GB to 1 GB or whatever is way different than dropping data completely off a smartphone line.

    I am guessing they won't allow someone to upgrade... Force them to nab a plan with data... For them to just revert it back to a basic line plan. They may but.. To me doesn't sound right.

    They did it with their non share data plans all the time.

    Well the new shared data plans change this. But if you have one of older plans you should still be able to pull it off. I was just saying they did at one point. So yes as a new customer its a "did"! :P
