    That's the same boat I'm on, I want to get the phone just to be grandfathered into 29.99. I think it was either the CIO or CEO of Verizon said it himself that they are going to be doing away with the unlimited plans.

    Its probably not exclusive to the thunderbolt, but since I read somewhere that the unlimited plans were going away in the summer and I havent heard of any other 4g verizon phones coming out soon...it might as well be. Btw, im definitely getting the phone just for the deal.

    Also interested for the same reasons.

    But, there is the draw of waiting for the Bionic so the TB price drops to compete with a dual-core. Timing is everything...

    See what I'm thinking of doing is getting it from Best Buy to take advantage of the buy back program. I'm hoping the unlimited data promo will carry over even if I buy it from Best Buy

    i have a feeling that when the duel cores start to come out that is when they will start charging so im thinking the DB will be the first phone to do it!!

    I hope its not xclusive just 4 the tb.I'll make a decision after I find out more about this bestbuy program.The thing is I don't want the tb,I want the DB. To get the DB with 29.99 unlimited would b GREAT!!!

    The best buy buy back program (say that 5 times fast lol) gives you up to 50% of full retail price for your phone for the first 6 months. After that the value it gives you starts diminishing.

    Things I'm wondering are:

    Does verizon's buy back match that rate?

    Can best buy make sales and not mess promotions you got on the line (I have the unlimited data promo)?

    Does best buy do an early upgrade (mines isn't until June)?

    I'm gambling on the Bionic being released before the change from $29.99. I looked at the Tbolt, but the horrible battery life is a deal breaker for me.

    When the bionic comes out. The data is going to be tiered for sure by then. Those with the bolt will be grandfathered for now but that may not last forever. You can't say you weren't warned

    I don't think they'll tier data until the 4g network is much larger than it currently is. Have you looked at the 4g map? It's nearly non existent! Presently, half of the people who would be paying for tiered data wouldn't even get 4g...

    Yeah I can't see the data being tiered in just one month's time. I would be surprised if tiered data was introduced for the Droid Bionic. It would only be Verizon's second or third 4G phone and I know millions of people are still out of 4G areas.

    If you have a 29.99 plan now you dont need to get a new 29.99 plan for 4G if you get the phone and you have 4G in your area you get it because the Thunderbolt and the Bionic both will work on 3G or am I missing something

    I just called Verizon and they said if you have the plan now its not gonna change and if it does your grandfathered in if you have one now

    You will have to upgrade from you're 3G data plan to the 4G data plan. I found out the hard way. Verizon wont ativate the phone without the 4G plan.
