    I get throttled pretty much every time. My data speeds are extremely slow once I get past a gig of data which doesn't take me long at all.

    Default Verizon's grandfathered unlimited data plans ending soon

    I have a question are most of you using your phone off wifi while at home? I guess since I don't have the 5 yet I can't tell any speed issue while on wifi. I've heard it's major from wifi to LTE. I don't know that yet personally.

    I use wifi 90 percent of the time and I'm on unlimited I use wifi because it saves battery vs using LTE non stop .. It is nice being out and about and getting the speed as if I was on wifi

    Is wifi just as fast as LTE for you? Well I guess it depends who you have Internet with as well.

    I don't have a computer or wifi at home and the wifi at work is monitored by IS and everything is blocked. I can't stream anything over hospital wifi. I have to use data if I want to watch Netflix or stream Sirius.

    I beg to differ. I upgraded March 2010 to the Thunderbolt with 4G and kept my unlimited plan. The battery was so poor (even with 4G deactivated) that I turned it in for an iPhone4 all the while keeping my unlimited data plan.

    What are you begging To differ with?
    You went from a 4g device to a 3G device.


    I have heard that Verizon would not allow people to keep grandfathered unlimited data if they switched from a 3G device to an lte device, however I have made 4 phone calls in the last three months specifically asking this and have been told I wouldn't lose my unlimited data if I paid full price for a phone regardless of the capabilities...
    So I'm still not sure

    If you pay full price you won't lose unlimited data. I bought an iPhone 5 outright to keep my unlimited data.

    I paid full price for 3 of the phones on my account to keep unlimited data. Nice thing too if you pay full price and want to add tethering for $30 extra each month you get unlimited tethering too. My data has tripled with LTE so I am happy I kept my unlimited data.

    I have up my unlimited data when I got my iphone 5 and I do not regret it. I traded "unlimited data" which no one uses it just sounds good for a shared everything plan with something I do use often UNLIMITED talk and text. I have yet to come close to going over my 4 gb plan shared on 3 devices. I guess if you tether all day download 10 movies and a few albums every single day unlimited is you you. I talk on my PHONE so that talk and text was better for me.

    Far as I know, tethering is NOT unlimited - you may want to review your terms & conditions and confirm before getting a "sticker shock" bill...

    Also I rarely find myself in situation that would cause me to absolutely require me to tether. I think my power was out once and I used it for my laptop.

    so when my upgrade is available this summer, are they going to drop my unlimited data no matter what phone i get (even if i don't get a new device)? I don't fully understand how this works.

    If you are going to upgrade to a new device, they are likely going to try very hard to get you to switch over to one of their share everything plans which aren't really all that bad, in my opinion, but if you aren't going to upgrade or anything, you will most likely keep being billed as you currently are until they decide to discard "all" unlimited plans.

    see that's what i don't want is one of those share everything plans. i just have a single line and that's it. from looking at the pricing, it only seems worth it if i have more than one line on my account. I may just hang on to my 4S for another 2 years or try out that new t-mobile iphone with no contract.

    I understand and I agree that it would be wise to shop around to find what gives YOU the best bang for the buck. Take care and have a great day, sir...

    So i just went through apples website like i was going to upgrade to the iphone 5 and it still let me choose all the same options i currently have or I could choose one of the share everything plans. I'm glad to see that, especially after looking at the pricing for one of the share everything plans, it's a total ripoff for me.

    I hear ya, and I'm glad that when you do decide to upgrade, you will be able to maintain your status quo. Take care..

    If you pay the fee they allow you to have tethering on a non data share plan. With that according to the website and the rep on the phone it uses the data allowance that is on your phone. If you have unlimited with the additional fee you get unlimited tethering if you have a 5gb non share your limited to the 5gb.

    What about customers with single lines of service that would have no need at all for a share plan.

    If you call Verizon they will put you on the old plan (excluding unlimited). $39.99 for 700 mins, $20 for unlimited texts or $10 for 1000, data goes $30 for 2gb and up. A buddy of mine just upgraded from a dumb phone to iPhone & got the plan above with 1000 texts. It wasn't offered online only with a call
