    Sorry if this has already been addressed...this will be my first smartphone. I am upset that AT&T upped their data plan by $5.00. I was going to go for the 15 dollar a month plan, but not now!! At least I'm hoping...

    My question is: . If I buy an unlocked gsm Motorola RAZR, will AT&T detect me and charge the data plan? Am I
    Right on that?

    Is there anything else I should be looking out for?

    Thank you!

    I work for att and yes eventually the system will pick up that you have a smartphone and charge for a data plan. It won't be the 20 dollar either it will be the 30 dollar plan.

    Oh, and I would have been putting my old sim card into it. I don't have a data plan right now...

    Problems, problems. A RAZR will not work on AT&T system.
    Verizon will not activate a smart phone without a data plan, period. I'm sure AT&T is on board with that ideology. If you do manage to acquire a phone and swap out SIM cards, newer phones have a micro card, AT&T system will detect it is in fact a smart phone and they probably have a plan in place for that scenario.
    Good luck just the same.
