    I'm currently enjoying unlimited data with Verizon.

    Is there any way to upgrade from the Razr Maxx to the Droid Turbo AND keep my unlimited data status?

    Even if I buy it full price outright, the turbo has a different size SIM, how do I activate a new SIM without Verizon knowing and automatically changing my Unlimited plan to an Everything More plan?

    Only sure fire way to do that is to purchase directly. There were other methods in the past that would slide past the rules but Verizon has closed all those loopholes.

    Verizon will allow a phone change on your existing plan without interrupting or changing the plan and without you losing your grandfathering of unlimited data

    Just request a new Sim for free and insert it into the new phone.

    Like @FoxKat stated, buying a phone from any source and inserting your existing SIM card or requesting a new SIM card should not change or affect your plan in any way. My last two phones (Droid Razr M and Droid Maxx) were purchased online and I just walked into my Verizon store and asked for a new SIM and activation on my current number and they do it free of charge...no changes to your plan...and I maintained my unlimited data both times. When you buy the phone from them at a discounted price that's when your plan changes.

    If I'm understanding correctly, one can no longer upgrade a dumb phone to (let's say) the Turbo adding a data plan, then revert back to dumb phone and activate Turbo in place of Droid Razr Maxx on UDP. Have I got this right?

    The phone will come with a SIM card pre-installed. Charge it up and follow the instruction in the little book. And your only option is to buy the turbo outright.

    CT raider, you can do that, but you can no longer remove the data from that line.

    This is correct, as we're being told now. However, I did have an account rep at Verizon say "if you wait one month and call in, you can have the data package removed on the dumb phone line". This is NOT CONFIRMED, so there's no way that I know of and can be sure will work, to do what we all would love to be able to do - especially us who either have Unlimited data as I do, or the Friends and Family plan as I do.
