Purchasing Samsung Focus Online

Has anyone on here obtained their Focus from Amazon.com?  Any issues with keeping existing plan (family plan) and addons when getting the phone this way?  I want to keep my unlimited data plan when I upgrade so don't want to take any chances of messing things up...if you know what I mean.

I just purchased the captivate from amazon wireless. It was a penny and the only thing I had to change was my data plan. Then AT&T said I should be able to keep my unlimited data since I've been with them for so long

I have had my unlimited data plan since early 2007 and have been an ATT/Cingular customer since the early 1990's.  I have always went into the local store to get phones but with the Amazon pricing its hard to pass up.  I currently have a family plan with three phones and the unlimited data plan on my smartphone, the other two phones are not smart phones.  As I said I just want to make sure and not mess anything up with my service.  I don't see a way to continue my 'unlimited' data plan at wireless.amazon.com when ordering the phone?  My price comes up as $49.99 which is still better than the $199.99 at the local store.  Looks like a 1 to 2 week backorder on the Focus as well.

I'll find out Monday if AT&T gives me a hard time. That's when I get my phone

I talked with cust serv at amazonwireless the other day. They said there was no workaround, ya have to sign up for new data plan. Then called AT&T, the rep told me i could keep my unlimited indef, BUT if I sign up for one of the other data plans then I lose the unlimited. Kinda of a Catch 22. So I held off, now its a mute point the Focus is up to $199.00 on Amazon today.
