    If it's taking you a few tries, then it seems as though it was a glitch because when I did it, at least 3-4 times in a row, it happened the first time, every-time. From what the rep said while I was trying to get a promo code attached to it, said they had just moved over to a new upgrade platform. If that is true, it might be whats causing the glitch, if it is a glitch.

    I had the option to keep my unlimited plan the very first time I tried it, but I wasn't quite prepared to buy a phone yet so my session timed out. When I went back in it was making me choose a new plan and it was at that point that I had to try a few times. Promo or glitch, it will be interesting to see how this pans out!

    Me too!! Just a warning think about it first before going through the steps of buying. It worked for me initially letting me keep my data. I hesitated then decided to go for it but now its setting my data as 2GB default.

    It worked for any phone not just note3. I had the sg4 selected

    I think the little glitch is done. It will be interesting to see how things look tomorrow morning.

    I think VZW may have done this on purpose.. if not.. everything in my account matches up even hours later. Unlimited data shows, new moto x shows, and new upgrade date shows.. soo its legit server end

    Tried it earlier and the option was there, now that I'm ready to make the purchase it's no longer available.

    There are quite a few people pointing out that they might have done this to save face with the investors. People were saying they think the Iphone didn't sell as much as they were expecting, but could be wrong. If that's the case they might have done this on purpose to get a good revenue bump before the end of the quarter which closes Monday night at 11:59PM. If it was planned we will never know, i'm sure in a couple days they will say that it was a glitch in the system but because they don't want to upset anyone that they will allow those who already did the upgrade through the glitch to keep the unlimited data. This way they make the investors happy, the people who upgraded happy. This is mere speculation of course, but someone pointed out that if this so called "glitch" happens to stop on Monday night around midnight, that it would definitely go towards that theory though because they would only want to keep the window open for as long as it makes their Q3 earnings better.

    Some people have stated that if you try it a couple times it might show up. Worth giving it a try a few times and seeing if it's true. Was reading the droid-life comments and someone said that it was allowing them to keep the unlimited data through the amazon store upgrade functions also. So you could also try that option.

    *GRAIN OF SALT MOMENT* Some reps have stated it was a special promotion for certain account holders that still had unlimited, don't ask.. i don't know. *END GRAIN OF SALT MOMENT*

    During checkout:

    There is no "gray area" here -- the language is cut-and-dry. If the deals survive, it's because VZW wants them to stay that way.
