short answer no, long answer - if you do not already have the unlimited data for smartphone plan that costed 30.00 before it was discontunued then you won't have it available for the Iphone 5S

Re: Unlimited data for iPhone 5S

 If you don't already have unlimited data because you had it and were grandfathered in, you won't get it.  If the question is whether AT&T will let you keep unlimited data, no one knows until they announce, and I doubt they will announce anything until Apple announces the existence of the next iPhone.

Re: Unlimited data for iPhone 5S

I have a Gradfathered Unlimited Data Plan and was just wondering if it will carry forward to the new iPhone 5S that will be announced on the 10th and on sale the 20th...

Any clues?

If you have the unlimited data plan already, then yes, you should be able to use it with the iPhone 5S or whatever Apple decides to call it. Smiley Tongue Just make sure to ask the Att representative that you wish to keep the plan

Who knows?  They may say if you want a 5S (or whatever it's called) at a subsidized price, you have to swap to a tiered plan.  They could do that as easily as just keeping the grandfathered plans.  Until they announce, no one knows.

Re: Unlimited data for iPhone 5S

I have unlimited data on my iPhone 4S and plan to upgrade to a 5S.  I know the current policy says I can keep my data plan, but my question is how to I upgrade and keep the plan since it's a switch from a 3G plan to a 4G plan?

 

The only info I've found on this is a year old Gizmodo article which states this can only be done in a brick and mortar AT&T store.  I'd rather not go to the store if possible.  Can this still not be done when ordering online?

I went from a 4S to a 5 ordering online and never went into a store.  They automatically changed my existing data plan to the corresponding LTE version.

Same here when I upgraded from a 4 to a 5. Just make sure you select to keep your existing data plan when you place the order.

Was this AT&T's web site or Apple's?

AT&T's but ordering thru Apple should have the same option to keep existing plan.
