Changing iPad but want same data plan.


Changing iPad but want same data plan.

I have an ipad (regular sim) that I still have the old unlimited data plan on. A number of times AT&T has tried to get me off of it, even changing it without my authorization until I spoke with a supervisor to have it changed back. I want to switch it over to a different ipad (micro sim). Is there a method for doing this? Will AT&T do this willingly, or use the opportunity to try to get me off the unlimited plan again?

Yes, what you want to do can be done without any issues. =)

They are simply switching the iPad sim with another one (they might need the IMEI but still no issues).

Re: Changing iPad but want same data plan.

Thanks for the reply. I spoke with AT&T, and as it turns out it is done entirely from the ipad and they aren't even involved. When you go to settings>cellular data, you can select an option for transferring plan from other ipad. I did this, entered the account info, and in about 15 seconds it transferred the account over.
