The point is that you CAN'T get unlimited anymore. You can only do everything in your power to keep it. Those that have an existing line with unlimited and want to keep it? Add a line, or upgrade an alternate line and switch the new phone to your unlimited. And for the love of God do not switch to share everything as it will kick the unltd. Off all your lines.

I agree. You need to be on a shared plan and then use one of two ways that you mentioned to keep your unlimited.

You can keep your unlimited data as long as you are using another line for the upgrade. The trick is to not renew the contact for the line that has the unlimited data. Once an upgrade has been done on the account for another line, you can flip flop the hardware wherever you would like.

I know transferring an upgrade from a line with unlimited data to a line that doesn't have it works since I triple checked with Verizon (which worked when I did it in December)

Def not all know about it. If you remove a smartphone from an account the Verizon system automatically takes the data plan off the account. If you add it back after the system would then automatically put the account on the tiered data plan. I am a dealer and have no idea how this was accomplished without one of the other methods mentioned in this thread.

Some Verizon employee told me if I have a dumb phone add it to my account then it becomes immediately available for upgrade tona 4g phone since it was my own equipment then I can move that alreadyv activared upgrade phone to my unlimited line is this true? I thought if I add a line my whole account which has 3 unlimited lines all go into that share everything BS

You use the upgrade on another line but the line that originally had the upgrade is the one that gets the extended contract, but it will still remain unlimited.

There is another way to keep your unlimited data and upgrade your line. I am not sure how long term it will be but I upgraded my line directly and still have had unlimited data since Dec.
