    To bad that they switched it to 14 day period instead of a month. Thats why I think the bionic will drop around July 28 (it would b e 21 days...just long enough to screw us.)

    Plus when you get the bionic you can resell your phone.

    Absolutely! You'll be very disappointed in your bionic if you can't use it to the fullest.

    If you have a 3g phone with an unlimited data plan, that still counts for being 'grandfathered in' if you buy a 4g phone after the July cutoff for unlimited data, right?

    Edit: After browsing other topics on these forums, I was able to find the answer in several places. Data is data so all current smartphones with unlimited data will be grandfathered in.

    Yeah that's what I've heard. I was being hopeful to see if it was 30 days. My plan B is get upgraded to 4g with charge until 15days in and then return it going back my og droid and wait until sgs2 or bionic to come. Then I can really use my upgrade ;) my only flaw is that they would rewrite my contract to 3g and I would get hosed.

    Buy an OG DROID off of ebay or craigslist and then upgrade to unlimited data before the 7th.
    Its still a decent phone and you can get custom roms

    I was going to use an early upgrade if we weren't going to be able to get unlimited 4g with the upgrade phone after the 7th, from what I have read I should be able to wait for the bionic.

    what do you guys think of this? I was on the phone with a verizon CSR today and asked about being grandfathered in with my current phone Envtouch and being able to get a smartphone when I can upgrade in august with unlimited data. When I bought my phone it was labeled a "multimedia" phone and not a smart phone. He says that unlimited data is unlimited data and theres not a seperate data package for a smartphone. I want to make this sure this is absolutely correct!! I don't want to wait till august and then try to upgrade and have verizon say...your unlimited data is for a feature phone and doesn't apply to a smartphone!

    Spoke to Verizon today as I currently have a Droid X and an iPhone 4...at this point, the only way to guarantee that you are grandfathered for unlimited 4G is to have unlimited 4G service prior to them going to their new tiered plans. The two people I spoke with could not say whether or not in the future if I upgrade to a 4G device if I will be grandfathered, regardless of the fact I will be grandfathered for my 3G device.

    On a side note, something to keep in mind, with the new cloud based services coming soon...I think data usage is going to skyrocket...I am really thinking about just getting the cheapest 4G device just so I can be grandfathered.
