    The above & below leaked training docs all but officially confirm the news we shared with you earlier this week regarding Verizon's new tiered data plans. It breaks the plans down in more detail, and also seems to confirm a bit of good news. It reaffirms existing customers that already have unlimited data plans will get to keep them grandfathered in. Below is also the internal training email. This leak was picked up by AndroidCentral.

    Looks like I need to buy a smart phone ASAP. Ebay will be my friend. I think I'll just get an OG Droid until the Bionic comes out.

    My big question is if and when I get a 4G phone is that considered a "different" data plan? I'd like to get the Bionic when that arrives, and I currently have the Droid X. Or am I grandfathered into 4G also regardless of whether or not I currently have a 3G phone?

    Smartphone data is smartphone data. Verizon doesn't differentiate between 3G and 4G data.

    Quote: PLEASE, PLEASE make sure we take advantage of this heads up and get our heavy data users set up on these unlimited plans before they change. End Quote

    Does this make sense to anyone. "Our" heavy users implies current customers. Would not most if not all current users be on the grandfathered current 29.99? And does this sort of imply that they recognize there are folks who do run over the current 5gig sort of implied kinda of treated as a throttling limit? perhaps to this person 3Gigs is heavy???

    I noticed today that if I take my early upgrade, I can get a TBolt for $170. I may jump on the chance. I know I can upgrade and keep my unlimited data but don't want to risk it.

    So it sounds like my 25% company discount isn't grandfathered in for data? That really really suxs.

    Glad I got my Droid X earlier this month. I'm surprised there's no 1 GB or 512 MB data plan. What kind of user would use a 75 MB plan, I wonder?

    Since the 75 MB plan is only for feature phones......someone who has a feature phone and can only access wap sites.

    I'm really excited to see this e-mail, but I hope it's real?? I've dealt with internal training memos before, and while they are casually written, they were always written properly and professionally.

    I don't know if it would have went out with a glaring error(s).

    How is 10 gigs a one-gallon gas tank? That's a pretty big gallon.

    Yeah my co-worker has been mulling it over for a few months now and after I told her about the changes for 7/7, she said that she was going to get one before the changes go into effect.

    Yeah I've been trying to wait myself but it looks like Verizon isn't giving me an option here. OG Droids are going for around $70 on eBay which is pretty cheap so I'll probably end up doing that and getting data now.

    I just got my wife a Thunderbolt (she was on ATT until yesterday) and asked that very question. The Verizon guy said that there will be no price hike for 4G coverage and unlimited data will grandfather for both 3G or 4G. When I upgrade my DX, I will get 4G automatically and not lose my unlimited.

    I brought her to my account only because of the data plan change coming up. Glad I was right on this one.
