    I have a Droid 2 right now, but if one of my lines has an upgrade could I pay the 2 year price on this phone?

    Yes. If you intend on replacing your Droid 2 through the upgrade from the other line, you only need to transfer the upgrade to your Droid.

    And if you have unlimited data you want to grandfather in, make the change before June 28th.

    Yesterday I got two different answers. Yes and no the first rep said because i wouldn't get the phone till after the 28 i would have to go to a tiered plan. I told him that its never bern like that before when i pre-ordered a phone before. The second rep said no problem just order by the 27 th. He said the reps have been asking this question for weeks with no real answers.

    On one of the threads on here a person posted a picture of his new contract showing his purchase of the sg3 and that his unlimited data was on contract for next two years from the date of his purchase.

    The answer is: if you preorder the s3 or upgrade to any device before the 28th of this month, you will retain your unlimited data, provided that you have unlimited data. Period..... :)

    The vzw rep told me that once you get the s3 and you return it you lose your unlimited data plan. Is this true?

    If it's an upgrade, I don't believe that is accurate. Your plan is separate from the phone, so it doesn't matter what phone is on the plan, and even if they subsidize the cost for the upgrade, when you return it, you pay the restocking fee and you're back on the old phone again.

    If it's a new plan, that is quite possible.

    Yeah, I don't think the unlimited would go away but would you basically just be back to a month to month with them? After the 28th, if you return the S3 you wouldn't be able to upgrade to a different phone and keep unlimited, assuming you just completely returned the S3, not exchanged, and then tried to upgrade at a later point. In effect, does the contract get voided?
