    Doubtful. I hear that when you upgrade you will will have to pay for data...only get to keep what you have with existing equipment....

    You will be able to keep your unlimited data plan that other guy has no clue what he is talking about.

    +1. You only lose the unlimited data if you change PLANS, not phones. As long as your plan stays the same, you're good.

    If you want peace of mind just call your carrier's CS or just stop into one of the stores and they will be able assist you but as stated above yes, you will be grandfathered in and be able to keep your unlimited plan....for now.

    As long as you keep a smartphone active on the line. There used to be a delegate feature code for a BB vs. Any other smartphone...not anymore. I went from an iPhone 4 to a Bold 9930 back to an iPhone 4 without problems with keeping my unlimited data.

    I'm glad I read this. I thought I would be losing my unlimited data when my wife and switch from our Palm Pre+'s to iPhones. I *am* bummed I'll have to start paying for my mobile hotspot, though.

    Are they able to change this at any time after you get another contract? I have had unlimited but to have it for another 2 years even with the carriers' distaste for it?

    No you wont. If you have unlimited data now when you upgrade you are grandfathered!

    Every time I have spoken with CS about the unlimited plan I have been told it will remain unless I drop the plan off my account (go with a non smartphone). I will say though if you have been a long time customer with Verizon and for some odd reason you do find yourself having to drop your data for even a week or two make the call to Verizon CS. I was faced with that situation and they put in a special request to have my unlimited data plan frozen for me.

    I was returning my outgoing smartphone and had to wait for a suitable replacement to be available on Verizon, well what I wanted wasn't coming soon enough so I settled on something for the time being. The good news is my request was granted and it is possible but be sure you cover your bases.

    The big question is will Verizon follow AT&T and start throttling the "heavy" users who have unlimited data in the future?

    They already said they will throttle the top 5%. That has been going on for months now.Verizon to throttle data speeds for heaviest users | Apple - CNET News

    If they changed it in the middle of your contract, you'd be released from your contract and free to go to another carrier so that's unlikely.

    There's nothing to stop them from eventually deciding not to give anyone unlimited data anymore though and saying next time you renew, it's gone. It hasn't happened yet, but it's not impossible.
