    I have a good feeling this guy is not telling the truth, reminds me of the guy who place his S3 in the nuke and then blamed the phone for exploding, if you have a receipt that states you signed up for another two years at current plan, my receipt has everything on it for what I signed up for, including $29.99 for unlimited web and email, nothing changed from my previous plan that was on month to month.

    My receipt says I signed for another two years with Unlimited data, I went from a month to month unlimited "since my 2 year contract had already expired", reason I did the new two year upgrade was so I can use my last upgrade at subsidized price. If my receipt says Unlimited, then that is what I am getting, I want to see how they get around that. They are bound just like you are by the terms you signed on the day you placed your order, and if on your receipt it says $29.99 for unlimited web and email, then that is what you are getting. Thats why when I get my phone I will go to my closest Verizon store and have them activate it making sure things don't get screwed up with my data plan, I will make them work for that $30 BS fee they charged me.

    I just asked a VZ Rep while online chat:

    Nia: if I order the Galaxy, will my data plan change? I have unlimited data and heard rumors that I will lose it
    Courtney M.: the only way to find out is to add the device to cart and proceed to plans as if you're going to order the device. if it gives you the option to keep your plan then you will be able to keep it
    Nia: ok. thx

    Oh Joy!!

    I pre-ordered my SGS3 on 6/6. Just got it today and activated. My unlimited data plan, which I've had since my OG Droid, was automatically switched to a 2GB plan. Called VZW to complain and they said they would have to submit some form and I'd have to check back later tomorrow to see IF my unlimited data plan could be re-instated. As a consolation for my troubles they upped my data plan to 4GB w/ Mobile Hotspot for this month since I was almost out of data for the month.

    Call back and talk to someone else! I swear the guy I talked to changed it immediately, and I asked him to wait on the line while I checked to make sure it showed up online, which it did right away.

    My boss preordered from a VZW auth dealer a while back, phone came in today and he went through this same BS when he went to pick it up. It took two calls and an hour and a half, but customer service was able to put him back on unlimited data.

    This is why mine will get activated in a Verizon store, so if they try any funny business, I can choke them right then and there, and smack them upside the head with my locked bootloader phone, LOL.

    I called back and this time when they said that they would have to submit a form I asked to speak to a supervisor. The supervisor was able to reinstate unlimited data in about 5 minutes. THANK YOU urklegrue!!!! So Happy DancingNexusDancingNexusDancingNexus

    Did you guys use upgrades???

    I went to the VZ store to inquire about changing the phone, what would happen to my plan... "If you buy a phone at full price (not an upgrade) the plan stays. If you upgrade ANY data phone on the account, it will make you change to a new plan." This time I will have to buy it full price as mine got wet and isn't working right, so I will see if the plan stays. But at next upgrade time, I will have to decide.

    It looks like the price I am paying now for 4 data phones unlimited=180.00 is equal to their new "share everything plan" Verizon's Share Everything data plans go live June 28th, let you add family (or a tablet) for a little extra -- Engadget$50 1 gig data + $40x3=$120 + ie. $70 for 4 gigs data + tax/fees $20 = TOTAL $260.00... that will double my bill for only 4 gigs!!!! :mad: HELL NO!!!!

    As I was reading thru these post and say Cerial Killers post, I couldn't help to think of this.


    I got my Unlimited Data Plan extended back in January, so I "guess" I'm good to go for now.
