What is actually wrong with them doing this? You sign a contract for two years for unlimited data yea. Then after the two years are up they are not contractually obliged to let you keep it. They have so far as a gesture of good will. Obviously they are being greedy but they aren't doing anything wrong, unless they stop you having unlimited mid contract. If that's the case you would be able to cancel as they have not lived up to there end.

I'm actually kinda excited to try sprint. I don't use much data I'm on wifi a lot but its crazy to pay $30 a month for internet on a little phone when I pay less for cable internet.

If it limited it better be cheaper if not I'll get sprint or maybe att

Since what breach of contract? A CFO saying stuff in an article about the future of VZW data plans is perfectly legally.

Signing the petition with your wallets at another carrier will do more harm than letting vzw know you don't like their business model. But the other carriers business models are the same. The big dent is made by dropping data on your service and letting sales reps and tech support know you won't get data back until the data portion of the business model changes.

...of the people, by the people, for the people...

It isn't a breach of contract, because right now it is just talk. The CFO is hardly a lawyer, so who knows what this shapes up as.

Then there is this little thing that data is a feature, not a contract plan. Its in writing that features are subject to change. You can change data plans any time and not affect your contract, but you cannot change voice plans because you are contractually obligated.

So it is a grey area, but I would say one of two things happens.

1. They wait until your contract is expired. You won't be able to activate any new phone without changing your data plan. This is the most likely course of action.
2. They let you opt-out without paying an ETF. I am not even sure they are required to do this.
