    Unlimited Data

    I have unlimited data and I just spoke to a CSR from Verizon and he told me that when I upgrade I will be put in a shared plan. But can get my unlimited data plan back by having a CSR call me back with in the 14 days of my upgrade. He said a lot of people are not told this. I will see how true it is when I upgrade next week.

    The only way to retain unlimited data is to buy your new phone full retail or used. That's it.

    I hope not . I was asking about the shared plans and he just openly said I could keep my unlimited. I will definitely call back and make sure before I do anything.

    A salesman will tell you what you want to hear, they want the sale. You will lose unlimited if you upgrade with a subsidized phone like JStafford said.

    and this


    If you upgrade at a subsidized price you will lose your unlimited data plan, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Don't even take the risk to see if the CSR is right cause you'll 99.9% lose your unlimited data with no way of getting it back.

    A CSR can do pretty much anything. Yes you'll lose your data because the system won't allow it to transfer but that doesn't mean its gone forever. The only question is how much do you trust him?

    It's interesting that the CSR has to call you back for it to work. Even it was true, all the CSR has to do is wait until the 14 days are up.

    When I had the LG Voyager a salesman said my data plan would automatically convert when the TV service came on line (there were 3 plans, 2 separate for data and TV, with a lower cost plan if they were bundled). It didn't.

    And let us not forget how many "Update this week/month" threads came from a call to a CSR.

    It would be nice if it were true.

    I was a VZW CSR for over 3 years. I can tell you once your grandfathered plan (data, text, or whatever) is gone, it's literally an act of God to get it back. This is a classic case of a salesperson blowing smoke at the O.P.
