    Current Verizon Subscribers Get To Keep Their Unlimited Data Plan Afterall?





    If you want to get in with Verizon’s current data plans but aren’t a current smartphone subscriber, you better hurry up an get with the program before the rumored July 7th change to tiered opricing. The date isn’t certain, but a Verizon spokesperson has confirmed that the new data plans uncovered yesterday will indeed go into effect this summer. If you are a current subscriber, you may be in luck, however, as DroidLife has uncovered some info that suggests your old data plan (unlimited data included) will be grandfathered in past the cut-off date. What’s more, those same data plans should even live on through contract renewals and upgrades for as long as you are a Verizon subscriber.

    The writing is on the wall, but take it as a rumor for now. We won’t know exactly how Verizon’s new data plans will shake out until they become official.

    It's been confirmed that current subscribers get to keep their unlimited plan.

    Here's an actual Verizon retailer indirect email:

    As of this morning we have been given the green light to start training on the data changes Verizon Wireless is making effective 7/7/11.
    $29.99 unlimited data will be discontinued effective 7/7/11

    • EXISTING CUSTOMERS- That have our $29.99 unlimited data plan WILL BE GRANDFATHERED IN, they will keep their unlimited plan after 7/7/11
    • EXISTING CUSTOMERS- That current have the unlimited data WILL BE ABLE TO UPGRADE AND KEEP the unlimited data feature (No known end date on this as of this moment)
    • EXISTING CUSTOMERS- That add lines post 7/7/2011, will NOT be able to choose the $29.99 unlimited data feature
    • NEW CUSTOMERS- Any customer that sets up service from now, until 7/7/2011 WILL BE ON, AND WILL BE GRANDFATHERED into our $29.99 unlimited data package
    • NEW CUSTOMERS- Any new customer that set up service AFTER 7/7/2011, WILL NOT be able to choose the $29.99 unlimited plan
    • BUSINESS DISCOUNTS- Currently our business discounts apply to the $29.99 data plan on the primary line only. Most discounts are 20% despite whatever monthly access discount they have
    • BUSINESS DISCOUNTS- After 7/7/2011 data discounts will only apply to the $50 and higher data packages on the primary line.
    • Discount break down ex. of customers with a 20% feature discount on their primary line. ($50-20%=$40/month for 5GB and includes the business e-mail feature)
    • -- ($20/GB vs. $40/GB+ Business e-mail )

    New data pricing for smart phones is as follows:

    • $30 for 2GB with $10/GB overage
    • $50 for 5GB (this also includes business e-mail at no additional charge) with $10/GB overage
    • $80 for 10GB (this also includes business e-mail at no additional charge) with $10/GB overage

    So all changes effective July 7th, 2011.
    Existing customer KEEP their $29.99 unlimited data plan
    If an existing customer upgrades from a feature phone to a smart phone after 7/7/11, they will NOT be able to add on the unlimited data package. They must choose from the new data plans.
    Anyone who sets up new service with unlimited data, upgrades from a feature phone to a smart phone with unlimited data, or customer currently on the $29.99 before July, 7, 2011 will be grandfathered in.
    These changes also apply to employee plans as well (personal accounts w/work discounts applied)
    SO, This is a huge time for us to set our customers up with the right package for them! We only have 14 DAYS remaining for unlimited data, and until the new data pricing takes effect. (14 days to setup new customers w/unlimited data, and customers upgrading from a feature phone to a smart phone)
    PLEASE, PLEASE make sure we take advantage of this heads up and get our heavy data users set up on these unlimited plans before they change.
    Please call, text or e-mail me any questions or concerns you might have.

    Hmm I was thinking about returning to big red if the TMO/ATT deal goes through but looks like I might have a look at Sprint

    Verizon’s New Tiered Data Plans Get Fully Detailed
    Good write up regarding the topic with release training material.
    Personally, I happy I can stick with my unlimited data when I upgrade to a 4G phone.
    Plus, why would anyone exchange unlimited data for 2GB a month?
