Miscellaneous Items

  • PDA Personal Plan:  These plans provide access to POP3 e-mail through a third-party provider like AOL or Yahoo; however, these plans DO NOT provide access to corporate email.
  • Payment Plan:  If you would like to establish a recurring credit card payment, advise the representative during the original “transfer” call.
  • Phone Upgrade:  If you would like to upgrade your device, it is best to wait until after the service transfer is complete.  Upgrading your device may require signing a new 12-month or 24-month contract, and the 24-month contract provides better hardware pricing. Visit a local retail store in your area (https://www.att.com/stores).
