Default Are prepaid AT&T accounts Grandfathered to work on smartphones???

Please Login to Remove!

I have a unlocked 9300 bought off ebay. I have an AT&T account. I want to switch over to a prepaid account. I was told by a store rep that my BB would be able to call and text on a prepaid account no internet.

I popped my sim card (contract account) in the phone and it works. Internet, wifi and calling ...

I popped my daughters sim card in (pre-paid) calling internet and wifi works as well. Her account is an old account and I was wondering if it works because she is on the old prepaid $1 a day and unlimited calling to AT&T phones with pay per use internet or buy a package.

My question: Does the prepaid work because its grandfathered or does this phone actually work on a prepaid account?

It will work on a pre-paid account, but things like BBM and push email will not. They require a legit BlackBerry data plan.
