Will my cheap texting plan survive an upgrade?

The company I work for has offered to pay the cost to upgrade my personal iPhone 3gs to a 4s. I currently have unlimited data with the 200 SMS for $5 plan. I'm grandfathered in on the unlimited data plan but I've heard conflicting reports about the $5 message plan: a) to upgrade my phone I would have to either switch to a $20/month unlimited text message plan or go plan-less and pay $.20-.30/text, OR b) my $5 plan is safe and will survive the upgrade. So, which is it?
You'd think customer service at AT&T could keep their story straight on this but that's where I'm getting the conflicting stories. I haven't been able to find anything on AT&Ts website that definitively states one or the other way.
So, has anyone here encountered this in *upgrading* their iPhone (I know new AT&T customers are only getting the $20 plan offer so my question is only about upgrades). Were you able to keep your $5/200 texts plan? And if you kept it, how did you go about it?
