    Yeah they haven't backed down in my case. I'm still holding the iPhone 5 I received on launch day still unactivated because I'm not positive I want to give up unlimited. The choice is compounded by the fact that this phone absolutely chews through data. I typically use about 250 MB data per month. Using the iPhone strictly over WiFi has burned up almost 1 GB the second week just getting push email, calendar, and google voice notifications. I haven't made a single call yet, and measured this over week 2 to 3 so as not to include the initial download and updating of apps. Once the LTE calls are included, I expect a hard time keeping it under 10 GB/month. No netflix, no streaming radio, no data hog programs, and it's using 4 times the data in 1 week that my old droid incredible used in a month doing even more stuff. That's the part I didn't budget in - that doing the same things on the iPhone results in 40 times more data usage. Looking like I'll have to return the phone too, an extra $50/month for the 10GB data tier is not worth it. Just wish I would have used my upgrade back in February to get a 4S instead of holding out 7 months for it to become worthless. Well, not completely worthless, I got to play with an iPhone 5 on WiFi for a couple weeks.

    Wow, I expected to use more data but nothing like that -- I wonder if you have this WiFi glitch? I'm back in wait mode...

    I ask because I am only a week away from my eligibility date, and I want to make sure I can get the new iPhone 5 (LTE!!!), and still retain my $30 unlimited data plan.

    Thanks!
    I did the entire process in store. We upgraded her phone in store (while switching her 'old' droid 3 phone to my line), and went back to another store a day later and swapped the phones. I thought I would be able to swap the phones online at home, but found out I couldn't swap them online because the system wouldn't let me and a rep. told me I had to go to a store (I'm guessing because any line change for a 4g phone with a sim card requires a new sim card? Either that or you can't swap a 4g/3g phone online.). Therefore we did the swap in store also. Sorry to hear other people's attempts aren't working, mine worked perfectly fine. If you repeat my steps I don't see why it wouldn't work. Do everything in person.

    Was the new phone an iPhone 5? Maybe this works for phones you don't need to pre-order.

    I don't post much but here's my .02


    I called my local Verizon store and asked if I bought the S3 could I keep my unlimited data. She said yes. Then asked how many lines do you have. I said 4. Then asked if any where NOT smartphones. I said 2 are. She then said one of them will be turned off for a second then turned back on. Then I can keep plan as is.


    Granted its still $199.99 but its worth my unlimited data.

    I'm going to call best buy in a lil bit and see what they say because their s3 is $149.9. Ill keep you guys posted.
