    The way I looked at it was that if I did the upgrade and they cancelled the order then I'm no worse off then I was prior.

    That's a good outlook -- and I'm definitely not trying to jinx anybody. Just a little annoyed by the I SIGNED A CONTRACT SO THEY CAN PRY IT FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS argument.

    Well from what one person stated that they were going to be writing to all those people who took advantage of this upgrade and give them the option of either cancelling their orders or force them into the 2GB plans if they go ahead with the activation. The problem is that there were many people who upgraded their phones yesterday and today at the stores and walked out with them already activated. I'm sure they will release some sort of statement tomorrow morning on this issue.

    I am wondering if I can now use the edge program next year to upgrade the phone but keep my data. I would have liked to buy at the subsidized price but didn't have the funds right now. So jumped in Edge to get the upgrade. Just wondering how that'll work next year. I might be real lucky if I can continue to upgrade yearly and keep my data.

    i'm in the same boat. I was going to be buying the Note 3 retail so worst case scenario, this purchase is cancelled and i'm still buying it retail. Hopefully, fingers crossed for us and many others, they honor the orders and we just saved ourselves $400. I guess we'll see how this plays out over the next day or 2

    fwiw, when I spoke with the rep's online they seemed to be under the impression that it was a promo and not a glitch so we'll see

    Just to add my own opinion.. VZW is a multi million dollar company with what is most likely a big, if not huge IT team... i'm sure they are very aware that the "glitch" was there.. they would be able to see everyone who was taking advantage of this as it was happening, no doubt happening by the masses.. if big red didnt want this to happen, why wouldn't they have just shut the entire sales side of the site down? or at least the upgrade portion.. as far as the needing to try a couple times.. could be easily explained.. difference in browsers, how much traffic there was on the site etc etc

    In times past their site has been down while they do updates, usually at oh dark thirty in the morning when I'm trying to use the thing.

    According to dlife VZW will honor the unlimited data let's see if that is the case.

    i just forfeited my unlimited data about 2 weeks ago......wish this post was made back then! but after about 8 hours on the phone with Verizon, I received 2 credits plus a cheaper offer for a 6gb plan. I hate Verizon for forcing us out of our unlimited data, but I dislike the other carriers just as much! AT&T is the only company that I would consider changing to but the prices they offered me were actually more then what I am paying now plus they don't have unlimited data anymore either. I guess it is, what it is.......
