    I have not yet heard of any current unlimited customer that was not able to switch to the Max plan (6GB/month). That is the sole reason that this plan exists.

    my understanding was they made you sign up for the edge with it (for some people)

    This!

    I bought my Moto X at full price to see if I could get a discount, and the Verizon customer rep laughed so hard he started to cough uncontrollably.

    If you're on unlimited you qualify for the Max plan. Avoid the Edge plan like the plague! If the rep you're speaking with doesn't sign you up, hang up, call back, and speak to a rep who knows what's going on!

    Correct. Unlimited users can go to max plan. They don't come right out with it. The girl at my store did though, phone reps take a bit.

    If you're not the account owned or manager you're SOL.

    ok thanks, I was just under the impression the Max was part of the Edge..

    when I talked to the guy he was kinda dancing around the subject, and I got tired of playing the dance, so I just told him look, I know for a face people were offered 6GB for $30, I'll do that if you can make it happen..he went on was like ok let me pull up your profile that could be a great option....that's when he went to tell me I wasnt the owner/manager so he couldn't do anything...thanks for wasting 20 minutes of my time!!

    It depends on your needs my husband and I both use approximately 7gb a month each. My son could probably lose his but we're keeping his just in case he uses more in the future. I do hope er contemplate using his line for upgrade purposes, hmm........

    Nope, the Max plan has nothing to do with those crappy Edge plans. With the Max plan you go back on a normal 2 year contract, and are again eligible to upgrade to a new subsidized phone.

    thanks, i'll talk to them again today (with my dad being there) and see what i can get

    I really shouldn't care about Unlimited as much as I do, I am averaging less than .5 GB a month, I'm just worried about in the future if I have to start traveling (which is a possibility) I'm luck my work as WiFi, which is why I use so little Data, I'm rarely on the 4G network


    *update*

    Glad I ask questions. They offered me the 30 for 6GB deal, but I asked if this is kept the whole time or just the 2 year contract. She mentioned I would be losing the 6GB after the 2 year and would revert to 2GB after the contract is up.

    Nope, not taking it then, I'll keep my unlimited

    Of course, none of us can know whether unlimited data will still be an option 2 years from now...

    They will have to make them somewhat compelling if they dont want to loose those customers. With VZWs stance on locked boot loaders, I am already prepared to switch. If they cut off unlimited and provide no compelling plan to move to, I will try a carrier that respects the fact that the phone is mine. Verizon's coverage is second to none, no doubt, but I am only willing to accept so much beating to use it.
