Are you going to buy retail/used phones to keep Unl Data?

    I like my Unl plan as it is and just plan on picking up phones from craigslist from now on without upgrading/switching codes. I used to do this when I worked for At&t(no contract/employee lines). The negatives would be costing double the upgrade price and not being able to afford the latest phones :frown:. I would have to use the $50 plan and the $20 difference would pay for a new phone.

    Anyone know if the current plan will work with 4g?

    You won't lose your unlimited data if you upgrade to a new phone through Verizon.

    Grandfathered plans are erased with the purchase of a new phone.. at least thats how AT&T does it.

    Where did you get that info?

    To my knowledge Verizon won't mess with the unlimited status with the upgrade to a new phone. If they would it will be awhile before 4g would become widely used.

    That's AT&T, this is Verizon. Had a friend that just upgraded to the Charge from her X and kept her unlimited plan. Only new accounts and new lines added to existing accounts are affected by the new tiered data plans.

    I can't find the article now but I saw an article about a week ago saying that VZW grandfathered plans keep their unlimited plan even with an upgrade. It also said that upgrading from 3g to 4g would also be okay.

    That might be how AT&T does it but not how Verizon is doing it.

    I upgraded after the July 7th date and still have unlimited data (grandfathered in...Droid to Droid 3). You can renew your contract and upgrade your phone and retain the same data plan you have (even moving to a 4G device). You can't change your plan though....

    There are no 3G data plans. There are no 4G data plans. There are no 1x data plans. Data is data.
