    Hi,

    I have the 200 text plan for $5 with my AT&T unlimited plan. I need to change my text plan for one month to(I think) the unlimited text plan.

    Can I lose my unlimited data plan if I change text message plan?

    Thanks.

    I don't think you can go back once you change it. It's just like going off the old unlimited data plan and switching to the 3gb data plan. Can't go back to unlimited.

    How do you keep it under 200 texts a month? That's crazy

    You should be able to change your text plan without losing your unlimited. I have changed things before and never lost my UDP.

    I think he's saying he wants to switch the 200 text plan out to the unlimited text plan and then go back after a month?

    That's not allowed because they don't have the 200 message plan anymore.

    A little confused on the title, but if you're changing your text plan, that won't affect your unlimited data plan at all.

    However, you can't change back to your previous plan. For example, if you change your $5 for 200 txt plan to the $20 for unlimited txt, there's no going back. Also goes with your unlimited data to a tiered data plan.

    You'll keep your unlimited data but you'll lose your 200 text plan if you switch text plans.

    AT&T no longer offers the cheaper text bucket plans to new or as a change option to existing customers.

    You're probably better off eating a one-month overage.
