If not, From what I've read and the complaints I've seen online you will get the grandfather plan revoked. Best to downgrade the phone to an OV and then swap the phone to a new one.
I did end up exchanging my ELite and sure enough when I tried to activate the replacement I was told that after May 27 there was no way to activate that phone under the $25 plan. Maybe they didn't want to, I dont know...but I ended up talking to 3 different people, which pretty much told me the same thing. After getting upset and returning the phone for a refund, I got a tweet from VM saying that if the phone was bought from VM directly they could have replaced it and I would have stayed under the $25 plan.
I upgraded to the HTC Evo since, which has been giving me issues as well, after the latest round of "fixes" I'm hoping to finally have a working phone. It's been well over a month with nothing but problems.
