said by 25139889:Until now (or whenever this new policy takes effect), they were letting people get new subsidized phones, even when upgrading from 3G to LTE, and still keep the unlimited data plan.
actually it would have been that way anyway. You always lose those grandfathered deals if you upgrade at the promo rates or make changes to the plan that would change the data portion.

This plan isn't that bad because it appears there are loop holes to keep unlimited data once you want to upgrade...
I can't remember which company it was, but some other company did the exact same thing in the recent past. They said that users with unlimited plans would be grandfathered in, but then a few months down the road, they announced that they were ending all unlimited plans. I wish I could remember what company it was.
Does anyone else know?

said by sonicmerlin:Yeah I have to agree, you may not actually be able to find them for the subsidized prices, but you can at least find them a lot cheaper than what you're finding brand new if they are slightly used. Either way we'll just have to see what the future holds, I have a feeling that really expensive phones are in my future, in fact I have a "new every 2" upgrade available right now on my plan, I've just been holding out for the quadcore phones, looks like I won't get to use it now
phones lose their value so fast anyways... months after release on ebay they sell for cheaper than verizon's "subsidized prices"

said by mike1965:A) You also get 2 GB of data extra and since their overages are $10 per GB it can be implied you're paying for the extra data.
I am still waiting for some one to file a class action on the use of the hot spot......you already pay for data.........hot spot is a feature of the phone......so they want to charge you extra for the same data you are already paying for just because it is coming out of the hot spot.
does the power company charge you a fee every extension cord you use?
the cable industry tried to charge per outlet ya seen where that got them
just my .02
B) They are moving to a data share plan in which you can use your data on multiple devices so the whole thing is moot anyways come summer.
