Some Tips for Verizon
My situation before the iPhone 4S order with Verizon:
My wife and I have unlimited data for 29.99 with Verizon
She has an iPhone 4 and kept that unlimited data plan in the transition (it took a call on that order)
We also have unlimited talk to any mobile and unlimited text messages for our whole family plan
I didn't want to lose any of the above, and so after I saw options asking about dropping a current global plan (I don't have one, lol) and asking me to pick a text plan (we already get unlimited) I called. The rep was very kind and assured me the main plan wouldn't change - her suggestions were the following...
Pick no extra text options - which wouldn't add anything to my plan
Choose no global plan - you can add a sim card and plan later if you need to travel out of the US
Keep my unlimited data - this was an option
The order confirmed and I have an email with the details now - a fairly easy process for verizon. I don't think they'd worked out the permutations on the plans and options well. She was experienced and told me that in the past for things like this there are usually options that let you choose to not add extras and as long as the main plan isn't changed one should be all ok.
I'll believe it when I see it in my hand, but my fingers are crossed. Best of luck to any who are ordering tonight. I ordered my 16GB Black 4S and can't wait to set it up.
