    For those ordering through Verizon web site and wanting to pay full price to keep unlimited, it's pretty simple.

    Click on "Upgrade My Device" on main page. Select the device you wish to upgrade. Select the new iPhone. Click on "Show full price option" and select. Click on "Add to cart and select plan". It takes a page where you can add protection etc. Make sure you select decline protection plan if you dont want it. It will then take you to a page to add accessories. Again if you don't want anything, click on "Continue to review cart" From there it will take you to your current unlimited plan. From there you can checkout and pay full price and keep unlimited.

    Here is another tip. Go find a cheap flip phone and put that on your account. You get to upgrade and keep unlimited data. Done it a few times.

    Except that Verizon changed it's policy and when you go to remove that iPhone from the "basic phone" line you'll have a 2 year data plan on it regardless of the fact you have a basic phone on that line now.

    This should be a pinned topic. This information is crucial and a necessity for those of us still grandfathered.

    Can someone explain this to me?

    I guess I was not even aware of this option prior to the policy change, so I don't understand what was possible and what is possible.

    Thanks

    Edit: I am on a grandfathered unlimited data plan and want to upgrade from my iPhone 4 but keep my plan.

    No matter what I try I cannot get the Verizon website to allow full price order AND keep my unlimited data plan. Never giving up my data plan so I guess I'm not getting the phone till later. Oh well. BED TIME.

    If you order direct from Apple you shouldn't have a problem.

    Actually thats incorrect. Im eligible for an upgrade so Apple store will try to force me to use the discount upgrade. I want to pay full price for month-to-month. Apple store cannot do this.

    I've never been able to preorder through Apple.com at full retail price (because I'm upgrade eligible). I've always felt with ****** Verizon.com / telesales.

    Does anyone know if I can wait in line at Apple and pay full price (and cancel my queued order through Verizon telesales)?

    I just selected 'month to month' instead of a new plan. At checkout it confirmed that my plan didn't change. Same as last year.

    I did it. Put the flip phone on another line. Alternate upgrade.
