    Anyone else being forced to give up their unlimted data plan?

    My wife and I share a plan with a grandfathered unlimited data plan. I got a Maxx a few months ago and now she is eligible for an upgrade. Verizon says effective last month that if you upgrade to a discounted phone you have to get a new plan and lose the unlimited data. Only way to keep the unlimited plan is buy the phone at full retail price. WHAT? That is bull****! Anybody else run into this? Is there a way to get a new phone at the advertised price and keep the unlimited data plan?

    Yep. You got it. Gotta love big red lol.
    My wife and i just went through it. We chose to buy razr maxx's on ebay and tell verizion to stick there tiered plans where "the red dont shine" lol.
    Bsst part of it all is we only spent $110 more on both phones combined over the verizion "sale" aka "rape me and throw me in a tiered plan" pricing. Lol

    This is pretty old news. I think it was announced/posted here about three or four months ago...maybe more. June 28th, 2012 was the last time anyone could upgrade at "discounted" prices and keep unlimited data. From that date forward, you either move to tiered or family share for phone discount or buy your phone at full retail to keep unlimited data.

    We were all making a big noise about this the entire month of june... there's no way except to add a line, get it one 2 gig data plan, then switch the phone over to your unlimited line.

    Or buy off of Craigslist or swappa..

    I guess if you can still do what 94 said, do that and find a friend to pay you for the extra line.

    Sorry I`m bringing up old news but its new to me. I check in here as often as I can but I guess I completely missed the posts. How does it work buying a phone elsewhere? Won`t Verizon tell me the same thing when the new one gets activated?

    The new line should only be 10$.. and would use the minutes that you and the wife share.. unless you're on two single line plans.... then it gets more expensive. .

    Verizon really can't say anything to you for buying a new phone else where. I've bought both my Razr, Razr Maxx off craigslist and bought my Thunderbolt off my cousin and they don't ask any questions when you ask for the proper Sim Card. Not really any of their business from who and where you got the phone. Unless it's stolen, then I'm sure they will ask a bunch of questions.

    I got lucky, I found out about it about a week before June 28th, so I got a new Maxx on sale and kept my unlimited data. If they try to force me to another plan I will take my bizness elsewhere, and I told them so. I interrogated that poor CSR on the phone and made sure my plan was not changing with the new phone.
    So MattyP how do you get all the ladies??
    'MattyP' I just offer classes on upgrading their OS...
    Really?? That's it??
    'MattyP' yeah, the chicks love it when you give em an upgrade...
