Quoting Tikaytasha:" I have Verizon and I'm already grandfathered in with unlimited data. I've heard that if you upgrade your ... [snip!] ... I'm on my phone ALL the time. I saw you can get 2mb for $30/month, but I have no idea what mb and kb and all that nonsense is"I got to keep mine but that was two years ago. I am switching to U.S. Cellular because they have better rates.
Quoting Jennybananna:" No you dont loose your unlimited data. DH and I both have unlimited and I upgraded us to iPhone5's a ... [snip!] ... us to iPhone5's a few months ago (whenever they came out) You would only loose your unlimited if you make any plan changes. "
Quoting Nicola =):" I am grandfathered in too. BUT they said if you change from 3G to 4G then you lose unlimited data since ... [snip!] ... data since its different. Plus now they charge you 30 dollars to upgrade even it its a "free" phone. I do not like this. Bleh."
Quoting JiLLiAN.:" That $30 charge has been in effect for a long time now."
Quoting Nicola =):" I know but I haven't upgraded my phone in a long time! lol I don't get expensive phones because I tend to break them or crack them. I am too clumsy for a Iphone."
Quoting JiLLiAN.:" My dad couldn't even get a smart phone because it would change the contract and make my brother lose ... [snip!] ... data. Plus, he's too cheap for one anyhow. I have the 2 GB of data. It's not bad, but most of the time I am running on wifi."Your dad upgrading to a phone with a data plan would not affect your brothers line. Someone lied. I carry 4 lines on my account so we can upgrade yearly. The two BS lines have crappy flip phones on them no data plan. When I got my iPhone5 I had to activate it to the BS line first then have them remove the data plan. Never lost my unlimited because MY contract didnt change. Each line is their own contract.

Quoting Monique and Dominic's mom:" My husband was told that the next time he upgrades, he will lose his unlimited data package. Verizon is getting rid of the grandfathered plans, it was announced last summer."
