    I thought I would be keeping my 3 year old Droid X for another couple years because an upgrade would mean I would lose my unlimited data plan. Just for giggles I clicked through the process of upgrading, just to see what plans they would offer, and to see what it would cost. I was very surprised that the Verizon website walked me through my choices , and the choices included keeping my current unlimited data and email. Wow. The phone was pricey at $300. I tried the same transaction through Amazon. The phone was only $200, but they would not allow me to keep my data plan. Anyway, I completed the transaction with Verizon before they changed the rules again. I should get my new phone in a couple days. I am wondering if this is a new policy, or just a fluke? I haven't heard any buzz about Verizon changing their rules.

    Hmmm I always thought that they had eliminated that option of keeping unlimited. You may want to check your account when the phone arrives and before you activate you make sure that you still do have unlimited.

    This was through the website alone? You didn't have a representative help you?

    I agree with this.... It may make you change it when you actually activate the phone....

    Yeah, this was through the Verizon website alone, no representative helping. I was really surprised when it happened. When I get the phone tomorrow, I will activate it and see what happens. At this point, I don't think they can change my plan without my consent. And we now have a new 2-year contract that each of us must honor. I'll let you know what happens.

    Well, I am happy to say I received the phone yesterday, I activated it, and I am still on the unlimited data plan and I have a 2-year contract. The 4G works, and I am trying to get everything set up and working nicely. I watched part of a movie on Netflix. I wish I could watch some of my Amazon Prime videos on the phone, but I couldn't find the app in the app store.

    That's great. I don't know if its a fluke or not but the bottom line is you got to keep your unlimited plan. Enjoy it!

    Ha ha ha! Twice yesterday I got a call from Verizon Customer Service. Each time they claimed to be calling to see if I ws satisfied with my new phone. Each time I told them I loved it. Then they wanted to review my plan to see if they could get me in a "better" plan. They told me I was using less than 2GB per month and suggested the 2GB share everything plan. I laughed and told them I love my existing unlimited data plan and I have a brand new 2-year contract for that plan and don't want to change it. Thank you bye! Do you think someone made a mistake?
