    Alltel was an American provider that was bought out by VZW back in 2008 or 2009.

    You will have to pay retail to keep it. I have unlimited talk, text and SMS, I use WiFi Tether for free.

    Or you could just turn the phone back over and owe nothing.

    I get that the no contract is essentially a contract on the phone as you are making monthly payments. However, in 2yrs, when the phone is paid off, your bill will go down by $20/mo. On Verizon I have "paid off" 2 subsidised phones (aka had them 2yrs, they are off contract and I havent upgraded yet) however my bill is still the same.

    Plus on Tmo, in 6mo say there is something new I like. I can turn over the phone Im paying on along with another $100, and get something new. It definitely has its advantages vs Verizon IMO. I have no clue what my bill would look like on Tmo. I have 6 lines, all smart phones with a 10gb share, even with a 21% corporate discount my bill is $400/mo on Verizon.

    edit - just looked at Tmo site. Can only had 5 lines on family plan, but 5 lines, unlimited data, paying $20/mo on all 5 lines for the phone contract, monthly due is $310. Plus Id get 21% corporate from Tmo also. Id say thats quite a savings over Verizon.

    I also looked into t-mobile, I currently have 2 unlimited and 2 dumb phones, I was going to be able to add an iPhone for my daughter, for the same $210 I pay now. Essentially I would be saving $40/month (but unlimited not 2gb). But I was going to have to buy all new phones, it was going to take me almost 2 years to save enough to make it worth it.
    I was still thinking of it but the rep showed me the coverage map, it's not horrible but it's not good. There was almost no coverage where I vacation in Maine and New Hampshire. It was good at my house. In the end, I didn't feel the $40/month savings was worth the drop in coverage.
    If $ is your biggest concern then t-mobile would be pretty good.
    I still think Verizon is greedy and I would love to leave, but you get what you pay for.

    I am strongly, STRONGLY considering jumping ship to T-Mobile when my wife's Verizon contract is up. We do have a ghost line for my wife so she can "upgrade" and keep unlimited but I dunno. $160/mo for 2 smartphones is kind of hard to stomach.

    How did this post run off topic so bad? It went from Verizon and how to keep unlimited data to a bash fest for Verizon. I'm just glad that the OP's question got answered before that happened.

    As I was reading the 6 pages of this thread I was thinking the same thing, then I added to the derailment. My bad.

    Incidently...anybody else still have their legacy Alltel plan? I always wonder how many of us are actually left.
    I do. Upgraded an unlimited Blackberry plan to a D1, then bought a DX unsubsidized, and finally upgraded to a GNex right before they switched to the tiered data plans.

    You will have to buy an unsubsidized device to keep your unlimited data.

    90% of the thread seems to be related to keeping unlimited data and the most cost effective way to do that. That's pretty good as far as threads go.

    And a way to keep unlimited data is to jump to another carrier which will invariably bring up comparisons and hate/love/whatever for the carriers. I do love the VZW service around where I live, its great and if I can keep my unlimited I'll probably stay with them but if they do decide to end it when the last of the unlimited data contracts ends (happened already didn't it?) I will bail for Sprint/T-Mo or maybe even a prepaid.
