I have an upgrade on my Unlimited Data line today, 6/27/2012. The last day I can keep my plan =) Lucky
I have the same problem... no early upgrades for us because we all already have 4g phones. They only care to do it if you have 3g or less.Originally Posted by huskur

Don't get your tightie whities in a bunch if you don't like my humor or get offended when I skip putting smiley faces all over. IF you cannot handle online comments and get bent out of shape, go home.
Streaming music will use data, but not NEARLY as high as video. Most estimates (including the data estimator on the Verizon Wireless site) put data rates at about 1MB per minute for streaming music. So, for a 30 minute commute to work each way each work day (5 days per week x 4.3 weeks per month) that's about 1.25GB in a month. That's not a deal breaker for most people.Originally Posted by nikecar
What can be a deal breaker is streaming HD video - at a rate of close to 1GB PER HOUR!

Maybe if I called again I would have talked to a rep who would give me an early upgrade with the online discount price, but I did not want to push it (and I was happy that I was able to lock in for 2 more years).
And this was on my 3rd call. On my first, they said I could be approved for a manager override but only for 3g devices. The second said I needed to be an account manager or speak to the main account (I am on a family plan, but not the main line, I believe if I was the main line I would have had more wiggle room). Third time was the charm.
A thought just occurred to me. The title says 3G unlimited data plans. Wishful thinking here, but what if those that upgraded to a 4G phone with unlimited data continued to be grandfathered.

After June 28:
Q: I'm a current Verizon customer with a 3G phone, but I need faster data downloads. Do I have to go to a new plan if I upgrade to a 4G phone?
A: No, you can keep your old plan. However, if you have an unlimited data plan, you'll be paying full price for that spiffy new 4G phone, as mentioned above.

So for the people that were grandfathered in still have it with the cost of basically buying the phone? Will Verizon charge it monthly or is it billed all at once? If its once I cant afford that
