Did you guys use upgrades???
I went to the VZ store to inquire about changing the phone, what would happen to my plan... "If you buy a phone at full price (not an upgrade) the plan stays. If you upgrade ANY data phone on the account, it will make you change to a new plan." This time I will have to buy it full price as mine got wet and isn't working right, so I will see if the plan stays. But at next upgrade time, I will have to decide.
It looks like the price I am paying now for 4 data phones unlimited=180.00 is equal to their new "share everything plan" Verizon's Share Everything data plans go live June 28th, let you add family (or a tablet) for a little extra -- Engadget$50 1 gig data + $40x3=$120 + ie. $70 for 4 gigs data + tax/fees $20 = TOTAL $260.00... that will double my bill for only 4 gigs!!!! HELL NO!!!!

As I was reading thru these post and say Cerial Killers post, I couldn't help to think of this.
I got my Unlimited Data Plan extended back in January, so I "guess" I'm good to go for now.

1 GB - $50
2 GB - $60
4 GB - $70
6 GB - $80
8 GB - $90
10 GB - $100
and then an additional $10 for every 2 GB over 10 GB.
So for 4 smartphones with 4 GB of shared data, you would be paying $40 x 4 = $160 (why does your calculation say that you have 4 data phones, but you only multiply $40 x 3?) + $70 for 4GB of shared data = $230 before taxes.

... details similar experiences. It doesn't matter that it's the new Galaxy 3 or not. I purchased new devices (Rezound and Spectrum) just prior to 6/28 and VZW hosed-up both of those lines - both initially lost the "Unlimited Data" status. I had to call back to argue them both back onto Unlimited. The problem is that VZW does not have Unlimited as a valid data package any longer, so every new device defaults to some other data package.
Definitely call back in and get a Supervisor if you have to, to set you back to Unlimited. Calling back in a few days to ensure that they have it right is a good idea as well.
Believe it or not, when I went in to VZW on June 29 for an upgrade, I had no idea these new plans would be kicking in - guess I've been out of touch. I was quite shocked that upgrading just 1 of our 4 phones would kill unlimited for ALL 4! My rep could see that I was clearly ticked off so said that she could apply a "loophole" and keep unlimited, which I can verify did work. I don't know what the loophole is, but at least on the 29th it was possible for VZW to keep us on unlimited. It's not that we use all that much data, but on principle it seemed outrageous that upgrading 1 phone would change the plan for all 4.
Used upgrades to order two GSIII'S on June 12th, the same day Verizon announced the Share Everything plan. Received the phones via FedEx today. Activated them online using the Verizon website. Activation went smooth, and after activation those two lines still showed unlimited data. The plans never changed on me. Granted, the phones were replacing other 4G phones so there really was nothing to change.
