    Yes, you can. Just go online to your account and it is a simple few clicks.

    Thanks! I assume this will apply to the current billing cycle?

    It depends on the change. Some can be made retroactive or delayed until the next billing cycle begins.

    would AT&T Rogers etc... really say no to you wanting to spend more money with them? :p

    Yep, but make sure you reboot your phone. Every time I've changed something mid-cycle, they always told me to reboot the phone afterwards.

    They pro-rate any changes if you make changes to your account in mid-cycle.

    I just changed my data plan from 200MB to 2GB a few days ago. The only thing you can't do is view your data usage until your next billing cycle begins.

    Also, if you're with AT&T, they give you the option of making the change to your account immediately or wait until your next billing cycle begins.

    Thanks guys for all the replies.

    Just spoke to ATT and there was no problem doing this at all. They even let me automatically switch back to the $15 plan for the next cycle. :cool:

    This, apparently, does not work on an ipad. I just chose to "change" to the 2G plan, and it does not offer the option to apply the change retroactively. It simply says "great - when you use up your 250mb, the 2G plan will come into affect"

    I tried to get an At&t rep to retroactively change the plan and she basically said "no"
