    I had some experience with losing the unlimited data on my wife's number when she did a phone upgrade/new 2-yr contract. I was out of town on business when she had a phone problem and since she had been due for an upgrade she just did that to solve her problem. When I got back I found out that when she upgraded she lost her unlimited data when she upgraded. Since we were still in the 10 day return policy I took her new phone back and made them revert back to the old contract which included unlimited data. After talking to multiple VZW people, I learned that you will not lose your unlimited data if you currently have unlimited data and in the future you always "bring your own equipment". So I will now never do any more upgrades/2 yr contacts again. This kind of sucks because now I have to wait till the newer phones become reasonably priced on sites like swappa, but this does allow me and my wife to each keep our unlimited data since we will never be signing a new contract.

    The losing unlimited data can be a tough pill to swallow but it's not too bad for me. I have wifi in my house so I make sure I do all my big downloads like music and such then. 2GB is more than enough for me and I'm a very heavy Internet user so I can live with it but it does suck. Little turds tethering their phones and running up 80GB of data in a month is what caused this. I see the little douchebags bragging about it on other forums. Thank to them we lose our unlimited plans.

    I use over 5gb a month... I both of my unlimited phones have been up since september... and until they force me to drop unlimited I'll just keep using my other lines upgrades... when they take unlimited I will take my service elsewhere. until then vzw coverage has me staying

    Dropping them like the ghouls they are. Funny, T-Mo and Sprint are both considerably better service around here, and with Sprint I keep true unlimited data. I'm looking at my options. Since Sprint has also picked up on the benefits of selling GOOD phones, too, there's a lot of benefit to running with them in my area.

    I get very good T-Mo 4G all around my house now. I couldn't even get decent 3G inside my house when I had Verizon.
    Despite what all the ads say.
    Your mileage may vary.

    Have they definitely dropped the unlimited data deal? If so, I'll probably switch to sprint... my contract runs out in January I think...

    Where is all this news coming from, I have not heard anything, especially from Verizon.

    When it comes time to renew your contract with Verizon, you will see that "unlimited data" is no longer available as an option.

    I am not planning to renew, as long as you purchase the phone outright, may it be from Craigslist, eBay, you're friend, neighbor, or as a gift, it don't matter, you get to stay on your current plan. When they notify me and tell me my plan is no more, then is the time for me to make a choice, when that time comes, who knows what plans the other providers will be offering, and also how good will their service be, will also be a deciding factor in my decision.

    I'm seriously considering dropping verizon but AT&T doesn't have LTE in my neighborhood. Sprint and T-Mobile barely pick up voice. I'm stuck at this point :eek:
