I wasn't able to. I ordered through Verizon and was forced to pick a data plan - unlimited was not an option. Once I get the device, I am going to go to the store and see if they will allow me to switch back to my old plan, considering I purchased at full price.

When it comes to unlimited plans, people really seem to be foolish. Why in the world would you pay full price for a phone just to keep the unlimited plan? Is it because you are using 50 GB per month, or is it because you lay awake at night worrying about how much data you have left on your plan?
The 4 GB share everything plan is $70. The 10 GB plan is $100. That's $30 per month more if you were to use 10 GB, which I doubt people are using. That's $360 per year more *IF* you really use 10 GB of data.
So you would rather pay full price (an extra $450) just so you can march around bragging about unlimited data? Seems just pound foolish to me....

-$110/mo. x 24 mo (new contract) + $212 (new phone including tax) = $2852 over 2 years
-$80/mo x 24 mo (for comparison's sake) + $688 (new phone including tax) = $2608 over 2 years
The savings would be over $200 over 24 months. Sure, that doesn't add up to much per month, but savings are savings, right? Like I said, actual mileage may vary for each person.

Verizon will probably force all of us with unlimited data to switch in the future, but until then, I'll be sticking with my unlimited data.

If they want to take it away, they will. Lawsuits or not.

I realized today that I don't have to get a Share Everything plan when I upgrade at the discounted price. Rather, I can buy a set amount of data & include a hotspot, too. 7 GB of data plus a hotspot would come out to $50; that should be plenty of data, even if I tether my iPad and use more streaming apps (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu), right?

P.S. If a few 10's of dollars per month is really gonna hurt, then I don't know where you are pulling $688 from...
