Don't want to sign up for ATT's 69.99 service for a year when it's needed only couple of times a year overseas.
how funny that this came up because I had the same situation.
I am going to europe for only two weeks in july and I wanted to get an unlimited data plan since I know i'll be using it a lot. I am a brand new customer since this past monday and i told them I wanted an unlimited data plan. They said I had to sign up for a year for $64.99 a month and i would also have to wait 60 days since I am a new customer. I explain the reason why i got this phone is to go overseas with it and their policies are preventing me from doing just that the first time I called (the lady wouldnt budge). The 2nd time i called I got a nicer lady who helped me out and transfered me to the international dept and i explain my situation to them saying the same thing.
After about 30mins, they said they start me on the international plan as of right this min, but when I get back from europe in aug, i would have to wait until the first of sept. to cancel the plan (they put notes on my account). I thought that was better than not having unlimited data at all in europe so I took it and it does work out.
I believe it is possible to not sign up for a year contract and getting a temp. international data plan.
