    My dad called Verizon today and ordered the Bionic for himsel and when he upgraded his contract he was grandfathered in to Unlimited even though his previous phone was not a smart phone and he signed up for Unlimited data on the 6th of july and was told there would be no grandfathering in because his phone was not a feature! Well I listened into the phone call (it was on speaker) and the lady said word for word I am going to override the 2GB plan and let you keep your unlimited data plan.

    Hmmm....maybe I will try this to get a family plan....

    I've been with Verizon for some years know. Loyalty has to pay off, right?

    Spoke to a salesman today and he said not only am I grandfathered into unlimited 4G, I am also grandfathered into unlimited HotSpot, even though I have never subscribed to it. :p

    I'm in the same boat jroc. Might have to try this too. Been with Verizon since we've been back in the US (8 years).

    I was proving a point to a verizon rep, they said 20gb was impossible so I did over 60. Once again a verizon wrong!

    As much as I could, turned off wifi and let my X run wild! Netflix is a great way to use data, if you don't have unlimited I would not suggest netflix on your phone.
