buy a Verizon grandfathered (truly) unlimited data account from someone (eg ebay)

move to t-mobile (truly) unlimited data plan

move to at&t mobile share where you don't have a throttle, but pay per GB

the thing is, 3, 4, 5 years ago, it was easy to ditch the throttling. but the carriers got wise to it. all the companies have updated their software, improved their software. now, you can change whatever you want on their phone, but when your phone connects to their network, they get information from it that we dont have access to. they know exactly who you are if you are connected to their network nowadays, no matter what you change.
