AT&T has changed their policy
I have a palm treo 680. As long as I keep this phone, I can start and stop my data plan with AT&T as I like. However, with their new policy, if I get another palm or any smarthphone, I MUST take the $30.00 plan. I called AT&T to see if I would be charged if I purchased another palm treo off Ebay and put my SIM card in it? They said, yes, that each phone has its own ID number, and if I switched phones, it would be recognized as a different phone.
I am VERY upset about all this. I use my treo for its PDA capabilities, not the internet/email. Have I used it for that, yes, but it's not why I bought it, and if I had to never use that part of the phone, I'd be fine.
I used to have a separate PDA and a phone, now it looks like I'm going to have to go back to that, and I hate the thought of it. Is there any non-smartphone out there that will let you access documents, keep memos, keep a calendar, have all your contacts and do a "search" of the whole phone - tasks, calendar, memos, etc? I don't think so.
I was told it hapeend because of people running up their usage and then complaining, so the company decided to require the package. I'm tired of having to suffer because of irresponsible people.
