    Thanks guys for the replies you have been very helpful, think I'm just going to purchase a used one and see how it go's
    so what about the similar card? I think you guys are saying that they can just give me one or they may charge me 20$? Should I take the device to the store with me or just go in and request one?

    So does that mean if you and your crew barge into your local Verizon store with shotguns and dead president masks and make off with all their NIB smartphones, those phones will be as good as bricks?

    update on unlimited

    You can not, I repeat can not keep unlimited plan if you go from 3g to 4g device . I bet I talked to ten people at Verizon and they all said the same thing. But that is on just broadband device. They said you can do that with your phone .

    Yes. As long as you DO NOT buy a phone from verizon at a subsidized price on a contract you can keep your unlimited. Im sure they will find a way to take it away from us all soon

    unlimited

    Well I purchase a mifi and they refused to give me a similar card, they said it is not compatible with my plan.yeah no kidding I said I know you guys don't want me to have unlimited 4g service that's why its not compatible. I guess tomorrow I will have to give up myplan if I want 4g.unless you guys can show me how to convince them that I should be able to keep my plan .any ideas I will listen to em.please. pm me if you can help me thanks

    The common theme that i'm seeing in this thread is: buy a third party phone and no problem going from 3G to 4G and keeping unlimited data. But try to upgrade a 3G mifi device and you will NOT be able to keep unlimited data.

    You are correct sir that is my trouble.I have a choice to keep my unlimited service but I have to stay with 3g.my 3g service sucks! I used a friends mifi jet pack and the speed was grate where as my 3 g is awful.I start wondering if because I had an altell plan do I get poor service?

    No you don't get bad service because of your alltel plan it's just that 3 g is ten times slower than 4 g
