if you guys could please update me here.

as far as i know only me (upgraded to note 2) and my sister (downgraded from Droid x to Iphone 4s lol) got the deal.
That sucks. Others have tried?

Maybe the rep who hooked you up got chewed out?

Alternate upgrade from unlimited data line to a line that is a basic phone, or has a tiered data plan. After that, switch the phones to the desired lines. Done.


Your friendly VZW sales rep.

Upgraded from a GNex with unlimited data to a Note II using my brothers line (He has a dumb phone) and although I had to select an alternate data plan (5GB for $50) next month I was still on my unlimited. I went through VZW's website through the whole process and used the "Transfer Upgrade" option to be able to upgrade. I don't know if I "Kept" unlimited data or if it will just take another month before it goes in to effect but I will take another month of Verizon's unlimited 4G!

Checked my plan online and I still have the option "Unlimited Web and Email - $30" selected on my line. Again I don't know if this means that I kept it or if it hasn't updated yet, anyone like to chime in and give me some info?

I'm told that if the data plan change is going to happen, it happens right away, so you're probably good. Can't guarantee it obviously, but probably.

I have worked for a premium retailer for going on three years. I can confirm that for the past couple of weeks at least you can keep unlimited data regardless of whether you're using another line's upgrade or even your own upgrade (and therefore extending the contract ON the unlimited line) as long as you have another line on the account that doesn't have unlimited...doesn't matter if its a basic phone or a tiered smart phone, or anything else really. We need this because we have to have a target line.

This is pretty nice because before, while we could keep the unlimited as long as we used a different line's upgrade, now it's letting us actually use the upgrade on the unlimited line itself, which it did not do before. I have even called several friends who I knew had purposely not used their upgrade on their unlimited line yet and many have now used that upgrade successfully. After all, you never know if this is actually considered a loophole and will be fixed.

And no, this does not require scanning in a basic phone first, the only phone scanned is the one you're buying and it is listed on the customer agreement, so we should be getting paid accordingly.

If anyone has any questions feel free to PM me. Heck, maybe I could even make a sale or two and ship you a phone if you don't want to deal with having to make sure whatever store you go to does this correctly...you never know how long the person has worked there and if they know what is going on. For instance we have a new guy and I always make sure to assist him with these types of things as eRoes can be a pain in the ass to use sometimes. (if this is not allowed, then scratch that idea! lol). I have 500+ FB on ebay so could even handle it there for buyer peace of mind.

I have a friend that works for a premium Verizon reseller and she does this to keep unlimited. Add a line to your plan with a note 2 ring it up do a device only change to put the note 2 on your line then put a regular 9.99 basic phone on that new line. Its 10 bucks more a month but you have unlimited check your minutes and see if you can't go down to a lower plan to make up for the 10 bucks.
