    Indeed this is true. I wanted to do the same thing a while back but eventually figured out there is no way. I thought that I could maybe do it by having them "swap" plans with another number on my account that didn't have UDP, but was told at every turn that the UDP plan is tied to the specific phone number. You can change the phone number and still keep the UDP but then the old phone number you want to keep will be gone for good and cannot be retrieved. Even if you wanted to take the risk and change the phone number hoping the old number goes back to the recycled pool of available numbers, AT&T also doesn't let you choose a specific phone number anymore. So even if the phone number went back into the available pool, there's no way the get it even if it's available.
