Of course Verizon has made this massively confusing and tricky so you end up losing the plan, but maybe somebody can enlighten me here.
Basically, my contract ends this week, and my Droid 4 conveniently stopped working reliably (think it's the battery, I keep getting a question mark/won't boot sometimes).
I was waiting to see what the Galaxy S5 is going to be like, and was considering holding out for that, but I keep hearing varying reports on what is happening with the unlimited plan.
Originally I read, and am currently reading here, if I buy a no-contract phone (full price) I can replace it on the line and keep my unlimited plan.
But then I'm reading other places that in June/July they might get rid of unlimited for grandfathered users. Is that true?
I was a power user, using it as my primary internet connection, but I currently do not. My bill is definitely going to go up if I switch to the tiered plans and I'll be getting less for it. Definitely unfair there.
Basically - if I get a phone without the contract, will I end up getting screwed in a few months if they decide to get rid of the unlimited plan?
As a side question, can you use a prepaid Verizon phone to replace the contract phone? As a temporary phone, of course.
