    Maybe someone here can help, as the Verizon rep was relatively useless

    I want to upgrade my line to an iPhone 4.

    Currently I have the BlackBerry Storm 2 with an unlimited data plan.

    When I go to upgrade to the iPhone, do I chose to get the unlimited data plan....again. Seeing as I already have it I am confused as to what to do.


    If someone could enlighten me I would appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    If you already have the unlimited data plan on your line then nothing changes. If it forces you to select a plan then yes, choose the unlimited data, nothing will happen, as you cannot have 2 data plans on the same line.

    You'll se a choice - either the iPhone equivalent of your BB data plan, which is unlimited, or - the unlimited plan with mobile hotspot, which is an extra $20 - take your pick.

    Thanks!!!

    I'm going to get the 32 gig then. I was worried about that and useless fees. Apparently there are not shipping fees, activation fees, or anything like that if you purchase online which I will be doing.

    Might as well just copy and paste the email.

    Thank you for contacting the Verizon Wireless website, my name is Anita. I appreciate your interest in the iPhone 32GB model. I will be happy to assist you today.



    Currently, we do not charge an activation fee when you upgrade to a new phone. The Activation/Service Establishment Fee is designed to cover the costs associated with establishing your account within our wireless network and billing systems. The activation fee is $35.00 on all single lines of service, and $25.00 on all secondary lines of service when activated on a Family SharePlan.



    A $20.00 Annual Upgrade Fee is required to change from the old equipment to the new equipment if the upgrade is done at a store or via Customer Service. The $20.00 Annual Upgrade and standard shipping fees will not apply when you upgrade via our website (Cell Phones, Cell Phone Plans, 4G LTE network with the Best Cell Phone Service - Verizon Wireless).



    Since you are considering the iPhone, you will need to choose a data feature in addition to your calling plan in order to perform data-related functions such as checking e-mail, surfing the Internet or transferring files. You may choose from the following data plans:



    Unlimited Personal E-mail and Web Feature: $29.99 monthly access. E-mail and Web for Smartphone is an easy-to-use e-mail solution that provides unlimited access to the Internet, apps, and personal e-mail services such as Yahoo!, Windows Live, AOL, AIM and Verizon.net (plus other POP3/IMAP providers such as Google Gmail, Comcast, or RoadRunner for select devices). E-mail and Web for Smartphone is not for Enterprise E-mail - i.e. Exchange Active Sync, Wireless Sync, BlackBerry or Good Mobile Messaging.



    Corporate E-mail feature: $44.99 monthly access and includes unlimited data transport for e-mail, web browsing and app usage. This service is designed for those who need access to their corporate e-mail and intranet.

    Oh. I'm getting a second secondary line, so it looks like $25 for me. Oh well.

    Couldn't care less. I'm about ready to throw this "feature" phone out the window and blast it with my 12 gauge.

    With the exception of the earlier post with the email, I have not heard or seen anything official yet. I wouldn't put it past Verizon, or any carrier to use this oppirtunity to get it's customers to pay more for an iPhone-specific data plan. I hear that the unlimited plan will be the only choice for those get an iPhone on Verizon. But, guess more details will be available soon.
