Help me beat AT&T

I currently have the iPhone 4 with the $20/month unlimited texting and the old-school "unlimited" data plan. I no longer want the unlimited texting, yet I don't want to lose the old "grandfathered" data plan? Can this be done?

During a period of heavy dating I switched to the unlimited data plan to avoid an $80 overage fee. Since then I've switched to the iPhone4 and kept the grand-fathered "unlimited"plan (i often use in excess of 2 gig a month). My texting has tapered off considerably and I now no longer want to pay $20 a month for unused texts.
I fear that any change to my contract will disqualify me from keeping my old data plan, as it seems AT&T is working their ass off to funnel their customers into their low-use plans. Is this true? What knowledge should I have on hand when I call them? Any insider info? Legal precedent?
