How to change data plan on iPhone 4S?

Hi,

This morning at around 12:40 AM i preordered an iPhone 4S from the Apple website. I currently have an iPhone 3GS with the unlimited data plan. However, when I was ordering the iPhone 4S, i chose the $15 200MB data plan because it was the cheapest and I thought it would suffice. I looked up my usage on my account and found that I needed to switch to the $25 data plan (I believe the 2GB plan) due to the amount of data I use. I was wondering how I would go about doing this and if I could make the change now, or if I would have to wait until I activate the new iPhone 4S.

 

Thanks in advance!

You should be able to do it at activation if you would like.  Even if you have to change it after activation, ATT will probably back date your plan to cover your usage in this case.

It'll change over to whatever options you picked online either now or once you activate the phone so I would just wait until you activate the phone to make further changes -- if you change over to the $25 now then mostly it'll change over to the $15 one when the system processes the upgrade so you'll probably have to do it over again

 

Just activate the phone when you get it then a little bit later check your online account to see if you've been switched to the $15 plan then change over to the $25 plan

If the $15 plan isn't enough data then I would KEEP your unlimited plan!! Once you drop down your data plan you can't get the unlimited back!! It's only $5 more a month than the 2gb plan!
