I don't want to beat a dead horse so I'm gonna keep this to the point... I've read about the loophole for keeping your unlimited data. I just have a few questions for anyone who has done it very recently... I want to get the S5 and retire my droid razr maxx and I'm looking at purchasing the phone on Amazon for $49.99. Best Buy has it in store only so they're not an option and VZW wants $199 for the phone (after a $50 mail-in rebate) plus a $30 upgrade fee. When I select the phone and start the checkout process, I select "keep my current plan" and pick the generic 2GB data plan (only because they make me) but I'm kinda unsure about the next part where it makes me pick one of two messaging options... "Pay per use messaging starting at $0.20 per message and $0.25 per video/picture message for $0" and "1,000 Messages for $10" If I select the $0 plan, will I still keep my current messaging plan when I switch SIM cards or will it change me to the $0 plan? Also, there's no option for me to keep my current equipment protection. I can't add any equipment protection. The only option is "No device protection for $0". If I select this, will I lose my current equipment protection plan? The reason I'm asking is because I've read about how sometimes swapping SIM cards puts a "pending activation" on your account and if I get switched to the pay per message plan and no equipment coverage plan, will I be able to switch back to what I have? Or is that all pointless because I'm "keeping my current plan". I guess I just want to know what all stays on your "plan" when you upgrade but select "I want to keep my existing plan" Also, when I swap SIM cards, I know I don't power up the S5 until I put my old SIM card from my razr into the S5 but do I have to go online to vzw.com and do anything or is it basically plug and play...swap SIM cards and I'm good to go...nothing else needs to be done? I'm just trying to get everything right so I don't get stuck on a 2gb plan. I was chatting with a vzw representative today and she said that they're offering 10GB of data for the price of 6GB and 15 for the price of 12GB but $80 for 10GB is too much. I could possibly squeak by with about 5 - 6GB but nothing less.
