You can stay on your family plan.  The data package will be changed to an iPhone data plan but you are grandfathered in and entitled to keep your unlimited data plan assuming the Samsung phone is a smart phone.   From your perspective, no change just in ATT's systems to reflect what is being used. 

 

Do not let them drop your unlimited data plan.  You get the iPhone equivalent.

Yes, it does.  The data plans are different.  If you are on an unlimited MediaNet package for QMD's, it will not transfer or make  you eligable for the unlimited smartphone data plan.

I want to take advantage of the Radio Shack trade-in sale this week.  I have a 3GS and plant to get an iPhone 4.  Is ATT going to hassle me?  Extend my contract?  

 

And what will I have to do?

Will ATT allow you to take advantage of the RS offer? Maybe?  Are you eligible for an upgrade? if so, should not be a problem on ATT's end.  RS may have their own rules.....

Will ATT extend your contract? Yes - you are getting a new phone at a discount, it goes with the contract for 2 years.
