To those not wanting to wade through this entire post, this is a summary of what I'm curious about: In short, where does one stand a better chance of retaining - long term - an Unlimited Data Plan: with AT&T or VZW? - - - - - - - - I realize an answer to this question is based on pure speculation, and generally I refrain from this type of query, but it seems to be crossing my mind enough, with summer approaching, to start (gasp) a thread on it. We don't know (or do we?) who is more likely to grandfather in unlimited data plans long term when it comes time to, for example: upgrade even to just the next iPhone iteration (be it 4G/LTE capable or not). This should be taken into consideration for the mere fact that by the time "iPhone 4s/5" arrives, rumors have it that the VZW Unlimited Data Plan will be pulled from the proverbial dinner plate of options. (This assumes VZW will pull its UL Data Plan this summer.) Yes, I've seen the recent threads on this subject, and an email from someone who asked an AT&T rep about this. But even that reply had a hinted disclaimer of: "AT&T ... Please continue to check in with this information as this might change in the future, although we don't have future information regarding the grandfathered Unlimited Data Plans." I've never started a thread since joining the community, and I hope I don't take a beating for one of those "Not another thread that we all can't answer with any sort of concrete facts." But again, on mere speculation (which is littered throughout all the other threads of this nature) what say you all? If it's nothing more than: "We don't know, please just wait and see what plans come to fruition from the carriers", then I'll gladly "/end thread." Edit to say: I'm w/AT&T, and yes, I'd eat some ETF fees to jump ship. But I could make much of that up by reselling my device.
