I have been following that discussion and although the comment came from a reputable source, after such a clear and quite public announcement regarding eliminating the grandfathered unlimited data plans, it will take more confirmation than a single report of a conversation with a VZW Customer Loyalty rep for me to believe that Verizon changed their minds and will not be eliminating grandfathered unlimited data plans, confirmation I would like to see but have so far been unable to find. And even if Verizon does renege on the earlier statements by their CFO, that does not mean they won't then try to find a different approach to obtain the same net result. So I guess that for us it comes down to:
A. Get my Droid X replaced under insurance and keep our current plan with unlimited data.
B. Keep using the DX with a bad display while we wait for newer phones whose details and release dates are unknown at this time and hope the report is right and that unlimited data plans are still possible when the phones are available.
C. Wait until both new phones and the shared data plans come out and hope we can still either keep unlimited data or save money with one of the shared data plans.
D. Get current 4G devices now knowing we can get either unlimited data or one of the current double data plan offerings.
Not being a big risk taker, I'm leaning toward the latter option unless I see some confirmation soon that VZW is not going to eliminate the grandfathered unlimited data plans as they had previously stated.
