    i currently have a 3G unlimited plan with verizon, if i want to buy a 4G phone to use with my current service, is that possible ?

    been looking @ the galaxy nexus lately, but if verizon forces me to switch to a 4G tiered plan just to get a SIM card for the phone then i likely wont bother with a 4G phone ....

    I upgraded from a 3g to a 4g..... I bought my bionic on craigslist, went to a verizon store, bought a sim card and still have the same unlimited data plan.

    You shouldn't have to pay for a sim card. I gave my mom my RAZR because I got another one and took it to the Verizon store to activate it and they did it for free. She had a DROIDX. Unlimited data plan and tethering $60 a month.

    did you have an unlimited data plan before you got the SIM card from Verizon ? in that case, they offered you 4G unlimited for the same cost as 3G unlimited, or are you paying more now ?

    i also thought the SIM card was free, how much did you pay for the card ?

    They won't switch you, you should be grandfathered to an unlimited 4g plan.

    edit: you'd pay the same price as you do for 3g now

    As long as you don't never change your data plan it'll remain unlimited 3g/4g.

    You bought a SIM card? Must not have been a corporate store. Corporate stores give them out for free if you have a device that requires one.

    I use to work in a call center 4 Verizon, u keep Ur data package, some times people will mess up & may drop Ur unlimited, just call in as long as as its within 14 days to get it. So if u have unlimited then go basic phone u lose Ur unlimited in 14 days unless u activate a smart phone again. So even if the smart phone doesn't work activate it any ways to reset the 14 day clock

    For you two who upgraded to 4g, was it an official upgrade? As in renewal of contract or was it you bought a 4g phone from somewhere else and had to get a SIM for it?
