    As far as I know, they still allow the sale/transfer of grandfather unlimited plans. That would be the first to go if they actually intend to end unlimited.

    People have been predicting the killing of unlimited data for 4 years. They continue to be wrong.

    Pretty clear VZW has been chipping away at the margins, probably hoping to whittle it down to an acceptably small % of users. The big thing is throttling to drive off the heavy users. The people using <5gigs per month don't appear to be in any jeopardy of having their unlimited data affected in the near future.

    They'll just keep restricting you until you don't have a choice. Technology is constantly changing. Unlimited data has been around since 2007 or so, and it's time for change.

    You have not been able to purchase unlimited data for years, since they stopped offering it, so what are you saying. This has NOTHING to do with people circumventing the system to stay on unlimited and not pay retail "may it be Amazon, Ebay, craigslist, swappa, or from their friend" for a phone.
