    How I Payed $299 To PreOrder The Galaxy Note 3 And Kept Unlimited Data!

    How I Payed 9 To PreOrder The Galaxy Note 3 And Kept Unlimited Data!-screen-shot-2013-09-28-10.00.07-pm.png


    The photo above is my order confirmation. This is proof that there is in fact a glitch in the upgrade system at VerizonWireless.com. At first i went to VZW.com, logged in, selected shop, and selected the phone. This would not allow me to keep my old plan, but instead was forcing me to select a shared data plan. I then went to the My Verizon tab, Selected Upgrade Device, Then I chose the line to update, then I chose the Galaxy Note 3, then it displayed my current plan with a green check labled "keep your plan". I went through the rest of the order process, verifying that it maintained my plan. When I confirmed the order, I received the email above.

    I am not sure if Verizon is doing this on purpose to keep their unlimited users from switching, or if this is just a glitch. I am currently out of contract, and have been considering a move to Sprint where they are promising unlimited data for life. This upgrade was enough for me to extend my contract another 2 years.

    Yes, I can confirm that this is working like DroidModderX said because I just did the same thing -- I pre-ordered 2 Galaxy Note 3's as upgrades for myself and my son and was able to keep my current unlimited data plan.

    Expect VZW to close this loophole quickly. Although perhaps it exists so reps can retain a low/moderate user of unlimited data.

    Hopefully you guys won't be hassled, either in VZW trying to take away your unlimited after the fact or demanding you pay full retail to keep it. Technically their ability to do so is probably buried in the fine print somewhere. But VZW is unlikely to want to make waves teeing off a handful of users for VZW's own mistake.

    Your plan is better than mine and I pay way more without unlimited data, mainly because I have international calls.

    Glad for the guys who can use this, but for me as soon as my contract ends I bid my farewell to Verizon

    The more this is reported the higher chance you have of Verizon seeing it before October 10th. I'm sure Verizon has a way to put a hold on all pre-orders done this way and say either you pay up or we cancel the order. Plus i'm sure that there is not a huge % of people that still have their unlimited plans that they didn't even think of this as an option in their system to look for.

    Resistance is futile.

    Interesting. I'll have to keep an eye on this as I was pretty much 100% set on switching to something like Sprint when my contract runs out in December. This MIGHT get me to stay on Verizon assuming it's not a glitch but intentional. Then again, I get terrible reception in my neighborhood as it is and I pay almost $200, so I was looking for a change (and something cheaper) so we'll see how things go until then.
