I've found that Amazon Wireless offers huge discount on upgrading (ex: Galaxy Note @$229, HTC One X @$149 w/ no sales tax). While trying to put an order, I noticed that there's no option to keep my current, "grandfathered", unlimited data paln. They only offer 3GB @$30/month or 5GB @$50/month.
I asked this to the guys at XDA forum ans was told that, no matter what I'd select with Amazon, I can revert it back to the unlimited one by directly contacting AT&T within 30 days of purchase.
Could anyone, especially any AT&T employee, please confirm if this is true? Or is there anyone who has been through this situation? I'll greatly appreciate it!
Thanks in advance.

If you currently have the unlimited data plan, you are eligible to keep it when you upgrade. That said, kdfederer is right; you may run into some issues if you go through Amazon rather than directly with AT&T.
If you run into trouble, please let me know so we can help out. You're welcome to send me a private message if you end up not getting your unlimited data.

This confirmed? Im at this step as well... debating a switch to the One X from an iPhone 4 via Amazon but worried I will lose my unlimited data plan...

Online through third party sites has been a constant issue for as long as its been around, I would suggest going into a store to get your upgrades done because it is very, very likely that you WILL LOSE grandfathered features such as Unlimited Data and at that point you then must ask yourself if it is really infact worth saving $20 on a purchase one time compared to losing a feature FOREVER???

I have to agree with the others, while Jam has offered to help you if there is a problem there are too many stories of unexpected ETF and change fees. While not true of all the resellers, it may not be worth the savings.
