    Verizon said it would grandfather those with unlimited plans, but has reneged on that. Sell us 4g phones capable of downloading a lot of data, then switch their plans. I bought this phone with unlimited data in mind. We've been duped. 50 bucks for 1gig of data is ridiculous. I used 2 gig in 3 weeks, streamed music a couple of times. I'm filing a complaint.

    You can still have it. You just can't get a discounted phone from Verizon

    I just got the phone. Now I'm stuck in a contract for 18 months. They shouldn't be able to switch in the middle of a contract.

    There is a giant thread already dedicated to this. Can a moderator throw a link up here and close the thread?

    Idk, but the thing is that this is an awesome plan for some... and it suuuuucks for alot of us.

    They need to offer both in a way that's good for them and us.. I think they're losing sight if that.

    Perhaps they just don't care.

    Don't forget we're only a tiny percentage o their total customers. We're pretty much the "hardcore" techies who take full advantage of our unlimited data plans.

    Overall it's a pretty good plan for majority of their customers and that's a huge majority. We feel duped because what others don't take advantage of is being taken away from us.
