A contract doesnt mean they wont end your data man, it just means they dont hold you to that contract if they end it. If verizon changes a contract all you get is the option to leave without etf which is the same option off contract customers already have.

I dont think they will end it until an upgrade cycle somewhere down the line at the earliest...and they may let the plans dwindle away on their own. The way I see the math working out is that if they end it they lose some fraction of customers who want unlimited and see sprint or tmobile as viable options. The extra money they get from the residual who stay (lower data fraction) doesnt compensate for the decreased customer base formerly paying $500 extra or so per upgrade and the bad PR from kiling a gradfathered plan. The only way it should come to a head is if their network is strained, and they already throttle the top 5% to avoid that.

I was just pointing out that some of us are still under contracts with unlimited data that go beyond 2 years past the day the unlimited plans died.

Has anyone found a way around being pushed into the upgrade? I also found it obnoxious that they are charging a $30 upgrade fee and giving me a $50 upgrade discount at the same time lol.

I posted a thread on how to get around the unlimited data removal when I upgraded to my note 2.
