    You are absolutely 100% wrong...3G is throttled and 4G is not throttled. Verizon can't legally throttle 4G.

    Verizon can not legally throttle 4G....it was part of the deal when they acquired the spectrum.

    I also know for a fact I'm being throttled on 3G after about 6gb.
    Luckily my GS3 is on order & LTE will be in my city by Sept so I'm psyched! I've already got the codes that can change your settings so your data usage is hidden/not reported to Verizon. Gotta love the guys over on XDA! (well, for this type of stuff anyways!) :D

    I only have 300mb on my data anyway. So I don't really care. I'm on wifi 99.9% of the time.

    Wait just a minute? Was I screwed over? I had an unlimited plan when I had my Droid X, when I upgraded to a Droid Razr, they gave me a 2GB cap! That's shady!!

    Any advice on what I can do other than call them up and give them an earful?

    Shouldn't matter...the share everything hasn't gone into effect yet so he should have remained grandfathered. They screwed you but its pretty much tough luck. They can't add you back to unlimited.
