    Just like the title says.. I use over 100gb a month.. A rep told me that If I continue at this rate Verizon will send me a letter stating that I have 30 days to port my number to another carrier. Can anyone comfirm this? I have the unlimited plan with unlimited tethering... Has anyone had their account cancelled for data useage? Not rumors I mean actually have personal knowledge of this happening... Thanks

    This would be an easy way out of my contract, going to try next month.

    Did a rep call you and say this or did you call them about something?

    I was in the store paying a bill... I had a question on my bill.. the rep ran a "account analysis" and then informed me of the above information.

    Unlimited is unlimited and if it isn't you have them for false advertisement

    I have unlimited also. But people like you are why we are left with $30 for 2gig plans on our next upgrade, when we didn't abuse the system at 10++ times any normal rate. I hope they bounce you

    Hey no reason to be a Jerk.... I pay full retail for devices.. so I can keep my unlimited.. you could have too.... Also its not people like me that caused the issues.. Its Apple with all of their fees.. Verizon loses about $430 on each Iphone they sell.. $30 upgrade fee.. the end of unlimited all the result of Apple and their quest to own the wireless industry. No one made you give up unlimited.. You could of payed full retail or provided your own equipment.. That was your choice...
