    Unlimited Uncertainity

    I'd love to believe that Verizon will honor the pre-order results people have been showing. But I know Verizon is greedy (supporting their shareholders) and it wouldn't surprise me if grandfathered unlimited data does not end up going away. For everyone. Period.

    I spoke with a customer rep today that was actually doing what he was told (I assume). And that is to not talk about unlimited at all. Consequently, he would not answer a single question about grandfathered unlimited data. He wouldn't say anything about... 1) paying full price to keep, 2) pre-ordering to keep or 3) waiting to purchase after some CDMA/LTE reviews have posted.

    What information has helped all of you take the risk to pre-order? What is your logic if you end up with a GSIII that ends up w/o unlimited or even a radio issue?

    Simple. They can't change the plan unless I'm upgrading, and if my phone comes a month from now and they don't honor it, I have 30 days to tell them to go fill up their bathtubs with gasoline, open up a nice bottle of wine, and light up a cigarette.

    Easy, when you pre-order, you have to renew a two year agreement and that agreement still included unlimited data.

    It is 14 days to return. If I read the fine print correctly, VZW still can decide if they want to honor the return or not. They are purposely vague. And it is unclear to me if you get your subsidized price back.
    Am I wrong that the contract REALLY doesn't start until you activate the phone? Which if their ship date is truly 7/9/12, then that is after the newly announced plan (6/28/12) just announced. Both, Does the newly released plans change your opinion?

    The contract starts when you upgrade and sign. I could upgrade to anything and then never activate the phone, but my contract starts the day that I signed, not when I activate.

    I think I'm going to cancel my upgrade. I can't believe these new plans. I can't lock everyone in my family plan in for another 2 years or possibly force them into this abomination of a plan. I'm going to tough it of with my TBolt for another year. Or, I'm going to pay an ETF. Screw you, Verizon.

    Show me this fine print you reference, and plz link me to the plans you're talking about, so we are all on same page. Also, what they say isn't always final. Lots of people get their way just by getting pissed off and arguing and threatening to leave.

    I'm not completely certain you are referring to my statement about the return policy since you also mention "plans". If you are, this is the link. Return Policy - Verizon Wireless It can be found at the bottom of almost every VZW webpage. Too me it is very vague, but then every policy statement from almost every company is so they can screw the consumer.

    I was referring to your comment about the 'fine print' regarding when your plan becomes activated, etc. whatever you meant by
    and also npro1464's comment about the new plans.

    Ordered mine today. Was able to keep unlimited data. The family share pricing was actually going to screw me over (big surprise). The nice thing was I called in and was told I had a $50 credit to go to 4G. So, I went ahead and got the 32 gb. Then the B@$tards hit me for the $30 transfer fee. Oh well, I think I came out twenty bucks ahead.
