    I purchased my Verizon iPhone 5 using the 'loophole' to maintain my unlimited data. All is good but I have some battery issues that are concerning. I want to make a genius bar appointment but I am worried about loosing ULD if I get a replacement phone.

    My general understanding is that a replacement from an Apple Store will not change the 'plan' just the hardware.

    So I am curious to see if anyone here has had a replacement iPhone 5 from an Apple Store and either Maintained or Lost Unlimited Data after the replacement.

    How would switching hardware change your plan?

    That is kind of how i feel, but I just want to make sure. After keeping ULD, I don't want to loose it but some odd chance.

    Anyone else care to chime in here?

    I don't see how could be an issue.
    Wouldn't it be the same as if you bought the phone on eBay or Craigslist?

    As someone who has Verizon iPhone 5 with unlimited data, I got it replaced with a new iPhone due to video issues. Basically put your sim card in the new phone and it will activate everything automatically.

    You are worrying about nothing. Apple doesn't care what your plan is. They are just going to fix your phone or give you another one.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    They will not touch your plan or anything like that.
    They will just give you a new phone that's all.

    Thanks you all for the feedback. I will be going in within the next week or so to have the ip5 looked at. If a replacement is needed, I have no doubt that my plan will remain as is! Thanks again!
