I used to be in these forums months ago, but after reading some threads, I will faithfully come here like I did before.
U can still call and tell them to put the unlimited back on there is no reason u would of wanted to switch so its obviously a techs fault and they can get it back if u cause enough rawkus and get the supervisorQuote:

She insisted the phone had to be activated then put his non-smartphone back on then it would be ready to go for Christmas. I called the "CMO" department - that's what you want to call it when you NICELY call into VZW and tell them your dilemma about how you're now on a 2GB plan instead of your unlimited. The bottom line here for anyone hoping to keep their unlimited data...DO NOT temporarily EVER put on a dumbphone then reactivate a smart phone...you will forever lose the unlimited data. I had an advantage when my plan got messed up the end of November - I worked for Big Red for almost 3 years leaving in 2009. I know how to treat reps, know the lingo, and knew that they could put the old plan back on my son's line, which they eventually did. I had one person tell me no, it couldn't be done, I asked to escalate politely to their supervisor who told me they would call me back and nothing happened. Finally a week later I called back and asked to transfer to CMO and got a new rep. She ended up being helpful but again didn't get back to me, so I politely asked for her supervisor. She was finally able to get me all fixed up, but took almost until Christmas day until it was all resolved. So, don't expect immediate fixes, but please be nice and take some of my advice here and you should be able to get back to your unlimited data plan. That is if you didn't put on another phone that was not a smartphone sometime before you added the Razr Maxx.
according to the rep I called last month because I accidently removed a feature on someone's account, the only way you can get something no longer available re-added to an account is if you call the same day it is removed.Quote:

But what happens when a couple months go by and I am billed for going over the cap I was never supper to have?Quote:

I refuse to pay full price for the new phone and will not eliminate the unlimited plan. I need it for business on my phone.
for those locked in for at least 1.5 yrs. I think we are all worrying too much.
Look how many changes they've done in the last yr. they got rid of unlimited, then did a promo of something, another promo of 2GB, then double the data, then got rid of it, then put it back, now we get this.
i wager this time next year they will revamp the data and give us something they think is better.
i'm set for 2 yrs so I'm not going to stress it out.
