Thanks, Contacted Version, said new Plan required ... $45/mo with 2 GB data

and can keep $445+ balance by retaining same acct (phone #).

You need to call the prepaid customer service number at 1-888-294-6804 and ask them. When switching from the prepaid basic phone plans to the monthly smartphone prepaid plans, I'm not sure if you can do what you are asking.

You will not be able to switch with that plan and continue using that device. You will have to move over to the smartphone Wi-Fi only version.

No you don't have to get that plan.  The rep may not be aware of the new plans

If you don't want data then it's $30 a month but you can only use wifi.

The OP said something about an added data plan. If they wanted a plan with cellular data I think the $45 one in the lowest price.

Ah good catch. I assumed the OP wanted it as cheap as possible.

If they sign up for autopay then they should get 3GB instead of 2.

Possible, but with an existing balance of $455, I would probably let that whittle down a bit before setting up autopay.

Thanks, will retain for future reference when Note 6 comes-out in Aug. Was

aware of cheaper Plan but would rather have the 2 (3 auto-pay) GB's in

addition to WiFi.
