I went on Verizon Wireless website today and saw that you can upgrade your phone and keep the unlimited data plan. I pre-ordered the Note 3 for my stepfather and it worked -- it says unlimited data for 29.99 on the order confirmation email. I don't know if this is a deliberate decision of the company to allow for this or if it is a website error, but I suggest people take advantage of this immediately in case they take it back. Also make sure you keep screenshots and the order confirmation email for evidence lol. I'm going to return my iPhone 5s to the apple store and repurchase it through Verizon -- I wanted a gold one instead of my silver one anyway haha. edit: The unlimited data discounted upgrade glitch is no longer working. For those of us that took a leap of faith, let's hope Verizon will honor the terms of our orders/pre-orders. edit: VERIZON WILL HONOR THE DISCOUNTED UPGRADES AND LET US KEEP UNLIMITED. BEST NEWS EVER!
