My blood was absolutely boiling this morning when Verizon dropped the proverbial hammer on grandfathered unlimited data customers. I know this action struck a cord with you. @dgstorm's post has already eclipsed 70 comments most of which is ranting and raving about the situation. I feel you I was right there with you. In fact I took to twitter with my rage. If your unlimited data comes by way of a super old legacy plan like Alltel's Smartchoice plan you won't have to pay any extra for your unlimited data. It turns out you have been paying the higher $40 fee all along, it is built right into your plan! Other entities that won't be affected include ECPD, CLEU, and Government customers. Anyone currently on contract won't have to pay the extra $20 fee until after your contract expires. This only affects users not on contract, who have the "Verizon Unlimited Data". I can remember a few years back when LTE came out Verizon tried to tell me that I would need to switch to Verizon Unlimited Data to access LTE. I firmly stood my ground and told them they would give me access and not touch my plan. They did and I am still on the Legacy Alltel plan. If they were able to convince you to switch back then I am sorry. This will be an great opportunity for other carriers to build some sort of plan to fit the needs of heavy data users who will inevitably be leaving Verizon. Thanks @smalltowngirl13 for the heads up!
