My contract is up and I'm thinking about selling my grandfathered unlimited smart phone data plan on eBay. I'm wondering if anyone who has experience with this can tell me how the process works.
When I go to my account on AT&T, there's an option to transfer billing responsibility. There's a form to enter a name and email address. What is the next step after this? Do I have to call the winning bidder to give them any information or can it be done through email? Is it done through AT&T or by calling them directly? What information is required from both of us?
Is it expected that I pay the bill for the month before transferring the number? Do I have to send the winning bidder my SIM card? Are there fees for transferring the account on both sides? If so, how much?
Any info would be appreciated.

I've seen a few select situations that have allowed for certain grandfathered features/services to be moved, but they are few and far between. As a general rule, it's not possible to be moved.
I suspect those people on ebay are setting themselves up for failure and hoping to pressure the rep into moving it. It's not the representative's call, so that's a moot point.

If this is the case, why are people selling grandfathered AT&T accounts with unlimited data on eBay for hundreds of dollars right now?
Two possible answers, either the sellers don't realize the ycan't transfer a grandfathered plan or they do and they are trying to scam somebody.
