I'm staying off wifi to get my money's worth now.
If anything that may accelerate the end of unlimited. If they see lots of people devouring lots of bandwidth they'll want to get rid of it sooner. Use wifi and save the data for when you really need it.

Even if I'm on network exclusively, I doubt I'll be using more than 3 or 4gb a month. Skipping the wifi won't cause VZW to freak, at least for me. I'm not one of those 30gb a month people.
They are already sucking up ways to shaft us, and i'm sure folks will see it gone by the time my renewal is up in 2 yrs. That said, I generally use wifi at work and home and already have 4.5GB (which is the 2nd most i've ever used) on my last day of my cycle.
So since I expect UD to be gone, I won't bother conserving or anything. If you use 10GB on a 10GB plan and I use 5GB on an unlimited, the only difference is that Verizon will want the extra $$ from what you pay and I pay and will figure out a way to get it. i'm not taxing the network more than you, but I'm paying less.
It wouldn't matter if I use 1GB or 50. the 1GB plan is more than I pay so even if I used less, they'd want me to pay more for the priviledge.
I just upgraded yesterday from Thunderbolt to a Droid Razr. The rep told me since I was upgrading I had to drop my unlimited plan and swap to the 2G or above plan. Onll way I could keep my unlimited was to purchase the new phone at full retail price.
When you boil it all off and put it in a nutshell, Big Red is a business. It's all about the billions. That's all they are concerned with. I'm going to buy another Razr Maxx off Craigslist for a backup. When they force me off unlimited, they have forced me to another carrier. Simple as that.
I agree with you since Verizon won't be carrying a nexus device any more it'll end up being the same thing in the end except I'll go to T-Mobile because I will be able to get unlimited everything for$50 and a subsidized nexus phone my only concern will be then using minutes when using Wi-Fi to make calls. :-\
