    Hello, I am staying up for this pre-order, and I have the unlimited data plan for Verizon, I am grandfathered in and have had it for years.

    Will they allow me to keep it?

    Only if you pay full price, if you intend to use an upgrade to get a subsidized price, you will lose your unlimited data.

    If you want the subsidized price ($199, $299 and $399), you can't keep the unlimited plan. In order to keep the unlimited plan, you'd have to pay full price.

    You can yell all you want, they can't and won't allow you to keep it.

    As soon as you try to preorder the system will make you pick a different available data plan.
    So in other words they will not let you keep it and do an upgrade.

    That's what I thought, but this happened last time and they allowed me to keep it after ordering the 4.

    They still had unlimited plans when they sold the iPhone 4. The policy has since changed.

    I wasn't going to get the iphone 5 until my upgrade in June, but I'm just going to get the full price now.

    $750-$250 for my 4S from Gazelle (make your offer now, it's good for 30 days) =$500

    Going from unlimited to a 2 GB plan would be an extra $20/mo for me :mad:
    So after roughly a year and a half it'll be a wash. How's that for a subsidy??

    According to Verizon's website...
    2GB is $100 a month
    4GB is $110 a month

    They are in it to make more money, not to delight customers.

    Just out of curiosity how are Verizon customers dealing with this? I don't even want to wonder what I would do in that situation.

    if you're currently on unlimited data, choosing a subsidy will knock you to 2gb of tiered data. you get the same number of minutes and you pay the same monthly bill; the only difference is that your data will be capped at 2gb instead of unlimited. you won't be forced to adopt one of their new data share plans.

    After you log into the "My Verizon" site, look at the upper left portion of the main menu when you pull up your account. You should see a dropdown box with thus month's billing cycle in it. Open it up and you can see your bills for the last 12 billing cycles, I did that and found out I will be fIne with the 2gb plan unless my usage patterns drastically change.
