    Ordered through the Apple store because I couldn't get the ATT store to load. I stared at the 3 options for about 5 minutes trying to figure out how to keep my grandfathered unlimited plan. I finally picked the lowest package and pulled the trigger.

    How do we ensure we keep our unlimited package?

    Same deal with Verizon. This blows.

    I went through the Apple Store app, never even asked me, just kept me on what I have now.

    On mine, one of the options was "Unlimited." I logged in through the iOS app, but it was the same at the Apple Store site. Somewhere along the process I had to enter my account information so that it could check my eligibility.

    If you didn't get the option but ordered already, my advice would be to call Apple or AT&T sometime between now and when the phone ships. It may be easier to change orders before the phone ships than after.

    Verizon is not grandfathering unlimited data plans. If you want the subsidized price, you have to go onto one of their limited plans.

    I ordered through Apple with ATT and it didn't even give me an option to change my unlimited plan. It just popped up as "no change in data plan", or something of that nature, and said unlimited.

    I am aware, I wish to purchase the full price device, and yet still cannot keep my unlimited data.

    Same here.
    My $30 unlimited data with AT&T was left untouched.

    If you didnt get the option I would dial 611 on your phone and have them make a note of it on your account that you want to keep unlimited. Then once you receive the phone call them once more to confirm that you still have unlimited data.

    I got to keep mine with Verizon. Ordered on a second line with a dumb phone. When I get it I will swap to my line and put the dumb phone back.

    Hey - how do you know this? I upgraded two phones via the iPhone app- smooth process- but don't recall seeing anything anywhere re: the data plan. I assume my current plans just carried over for both phones?

    Can I check this somewhere?

    There was a tiny line/link on the Order page (with the iPhone that was ordered) that said "View Plan Details". Tapped it and saw that my Unlimited Data plan was preserved. It was right above the Ship to Me check box.

    I dont think you can check it now.
    I ordered on apples site, not on the iphone app.
    It listed unlimited iphone data $30 and the current minutes and texting plan I have on my family plan.
    So I assume everything will work fine.
