Existing Verizon Customers Can Keep Their Unlimited Plans


AndroidCentral provides details of Verizon's plans to eliminate their unlimited data plans as of July 7th. As previously reported, Verizon will be doing away with their unlimited $29.99 plan that is presently available for smartphones and replacing it with a tiered plan. Like AT&T, however, they will be grandfathering in existing customers so they will continue to be able to use the unlimited plan:
• If you have Verizon's $29.99 unlimited data plan, you'll be able to keep it after July 7.
• You'll also be able to keep the $29.99 unlimited plan when you upgrade to a new phone. (No word on if there's a pricing difference or when that policy could change.)
• If you add a line to an existing account, you'll not be able to chose the $29.99 unlimited data plan.
• If you're a new customer between now and July 7, you'll still be able to choose the $29.99 plan.
This grandfathering also applies to future upgrades, so existing iPhone 4 Verizon customers will be able to retain their unlimited plan if they upgrade to the iPhone 5 when it is released.

Monkey see, monkey do.

I still have unlimited under AT&T. If they boot that plan when they launch LTE, I have no incentive to stay with them.

People that plan to upgrade still get to keep their unlimited? Didn't think they do that. I guess the only people who get the raw end of the deal are people getting smartphones after July 7th. The cheapest data plan better be cheaper than the rumored $30 for 2gigs.

I'm thinking Verizon has another trick to separate people from their existing unlimited data.

So glad I got the iPhone 4 when I did. Looks like ill upgrade again in 2 years and get the LTE iPhone. Hopefully by then, my area will be covered.

Will the old unlimited plan include 4G data? Will the new $30 2GB plan include 4G data?
