I myself have taken it all the way to the checkout area where you enter your credit card details and submit the order, and have a friend who has completely gone through with an order."
The news is curious in that Verizon has been waging war on grandfathered unlimited users for several years now
, using every tactic possible (most specifically device upgrades) to try and push those users on to metered plans. There's some additional discussion about this over at Howard Forums
and at Droid Life
