    As many news sources have indicated Verizon is set to eliminate the unlimited data plan in the next month or so.

    Will this change allow current Verizon customers to get out of their contract without a penalty?

    Via Verizon (Customer Agreement)
    Can Verizon Wireless Change This Agreement or My Service?

    We may change prices or any other term of your Service or this agreement at any time,but we'll provide notice first, including written notice if you have Postpay Service. If you use your Service after the change takes effect, that means you're accepting the change. If you're a Postpay customer and a change to your Plan or this agreement has a material adverse effect on you, you can cancel the line of Service that has been affected within 60 days of receiving the notice with no early termination fee.

    No because you will be grandfathered into unlimited data. The unlimited data ending only matters for new subscriptions.

    Not really cancelled more discontinued :D But yes customers will be grandfathered if they got the plan before the start of it.

    Grandfathered in, but possibly not if you upgrade to a new smartphone after July 7th.

    Yeah, but if you do that you're signing a new contract anyway so getting out of the ETF won't happen.
