Default Has anyone heard about unlimited going away?

This is what i heard at a local store.

Verizon will be cancelling unlimited data for all whose contracts have expired so you have only a few months left. Their new plan is 6G shared, which we don't use each month except this one.

This is what i heard at my local store today do you think this is true? I've been hearing this for the last year it will be gone in a couple months but its still here. I don't believe it i think there just trying to move me off unlimited. Im thinking of trying the bb method with the sim.

The only way you'll lose your unlimited is if you upgrade your phone and renew your contract. Renewing for another 2 years allows you to get any phone at a discounted price. If you wanna keep your unlimited you'll have to start paying for new phones at full retail price. This won't renew your contract

On the other hand, if you do give up your unlimited they are offering 6GB for $30 under the Max plan. I upgraded my wife to a new phone going this route because she doesn't use much data. I bought a new LG G2 for myself off Swappa to keep my unlimited.

Can you explain that to me? I have two lines with unlimited and two lines with just a basic phone. All four lines are out of contract and can renew, but do not want to loose unlimited.

The way it worked was I asked if I can keep my unlimited. Then they said yes we will use the other line.
1. first they use the upgrade on my line for the dumbphone expanding my contract for two years.
2. Add smartphone to dumbphone line which will add a data plan to that line(will be removed later).
3. Move the phone over to my number and move my info to a new SIM that will fit.
4. put dumbphone back on the dumbphones original line and remove the data plan.
5. Put SIM from your line in new phone and Walla you have kept your unlimited data.
