Do you want to get rid of the data plan for your AT&T smartphone, but missed the September 6th deadline? You now have a second chance. The deadline to drop your plan has been extended until October 31st.
Our tipster tells us that the new deadline comes with a few catches:
- You must have added data service before September 6th. Obvious.
- After making the change, you must have all data service shut off for your smartphone.
- No more à la carte options, kids. If you want pay-per-use data on a smartphone, you need to build a time machine and travel back to September 6th.
- iPhones aren’t eligible.
Why would you want to ditch the data plan on your smartphone? Granted, it makes the phone a lot less useful and less fun to use, but some people prefer to go interwebs-free for the cost savings. $30/month is a lot of money when someone is trying to cut back, and you can still play Bejeweled.
