Is it possible to change a *A flight, booked with UA miles, within 24 hours of the flight, even though the official rule is up to 24 hrs. ?

Don't believe so. I've made and changed intl tickets on *A flights many times last minute.

I don't believe such a rule exist. You probably got another dumb airline agent. Again the airlines raise my blood pressure with hiring such dumb stupid agents. And now if the agent already noted the ticket you'll really have a hard time getting it changed.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

It's on the UA website. Dumb stupid agents come in handy many times too.
