They will raise prices because then we will value their service more?

Do you think they would hype an announcement like that? I don't think so, and I hope you are wrong.

I'm sure they have thought up some other devious way to separate us from our hard earned money.

I read that comes in a year (April 2014) Don't remember the exact page it was on, but its on their site.

And that's exactly why I bought my wife's iPhone 5 full retail, knowing my contract is up in Jan 2014. Bye bye Verizon.

the theory being that June 27, 2012 was the last day to renew a contract and keep unlimited data?

Not sure yet, probably t-mobile but I need to confirm HSPA+ coverage at my home and work.

don't think a CDMA phone is going to work on a GSM network

Where did I say it would? I'd be buying new devices (probably a Nexus for myself and a used iPhone for the wife).

No, it will pain me to have paid retail for it, but it simply wasn't worth losing unlimited data AND being stuck into another 2 years.

Whatever it is, I doubt it will be good news for us customers. Atleast if they throw in some KY or give us a reach around it won't be as bad or barely notice.

All unlimited phone's not tied to a contract ,upgrade to share everything or loose service instantly I/E at midnight after they make the announcement. If they have evidence that you have been tethering you loose service no if and's or butt's.
