    Confirmed: Verizon 3G Subscribers Keep Unlimited Data Plan When Upgrading to 4G Phone






    Verizon recently announced their new tiered data plans that have now replaced the older plans. One pretty big thing that’s missing from the tiered data is the unlimited 3G data plan that used to exist. That $30 unlimited data plan was nice but is no longer available. But Verizon has good news if you’re willing to upgrade to a 4G LTE phone.

    So if you currently have a 3G smartphone on Verizon’s network and are using the $30 unlimited data plan you’ll be able to upgrade your 3G smartphone to a 4G LTE smartphone and then you’ll be able to keep your unlimited data plus for $30 a month you can get an unlimited mobile LTE hotspot which is pretty good. Verizon posted this news on their Twitter account today.

    This is some really great news for Verizon customers. You get to continue using your unlimited 3G data plan and once the contract is up you can upgrade to an even better 4G LTE phone and still have unlimited data but on a much faster LTE network. Plus for $30 more a month you can turn your phone into a mobile hotspot with unlimited tethering. We’ll have to see how long this deal is available though.

    I'd consider dropping my ISP, but then tethering all the time and charging my phone would be a pain just to save 20 bucks...I take it no cheaper tether plan is available?

    In my mind, VZW is saying a little free tether won't hurt anyone. But understandably if you tether a lot they what you to pay.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but no where in that tweet do they claim to allow people who are on Unlimited 3G to upgrade to 4G and keep an Unlimited Plan. But maybe that's just me?

    Looks like the sales guy that sold my wife her Thunderbolt was telling the truth. I asked that exact question and he said that I could upgrade to 4G and keep my unlimited. He said that it doesn't matter if its 3g or 4g. unlimited data is unlimited no matter which it was.

    VZ rep called me today, confirmed grandfathering in to Unlimited data, but....if you "currently" don't have a tethering plan, you can't get the $30 unlimited tethering, only the $20 2gb tethering.

    If you ahve Unlimited 3G now, you will be grandfathered into a 4G unlimited plan, because VZW is making it 1 price for either 3G or 4G. So it doesn't matter what data speed you choose, you'll pay the same price.
