No. They're speaking of the double data promo. Grandfathered unlimited is different. You should be good.

As much as I'd like to believe this post, it's hard to do so. However thank you for taking the time to update us and hopefully you are 100% correct.

Yes I would guess the D4 will appeal to business types, or at least people who really like a keyboard, both types mostly use the phone for email, browsing and texts. I think it will be a very nice phone for those people.

For now. Until it possibly changes.
Why? Based on his whopping 4 conflicting posts? Or his origination day of yesterday? Or his completely secretive persona? Or his failure to share anything new?

Or that he goes into hiding right after posting?

So basically I should be able to just return it before the 8th and get my money back (minus the restocking fee) and then I can just preorder online if that's the case.

From my understanding you can even change to a dumb phone and keep your data plan. I switched from a bionic to a 2 year old LG Dare and kept my data plan knowing that the nexus was coming soon (before I rented a Rezoun to lock in double data).

My friend and I have a kind of understanding with insider Verizon info. We will discuss the phones they have and even upcoming phones, but he typically does not give me too much info because he knows what I do here and he really isn't a "phone guy" or "gadget guy" (not to mention that he is always afraid of losing his job). To him it is just a job and we are all crazy.

In short, I don't ask for info and I'm thankful for what he is willing to give me.

Even shorter, no.

I was told you should NOT switch to a non-smartphone. Doing so will trigger the limited data plan once you switch back to a smartphone...That is what the person told me from the corporate store near me yesterday when I asked about activating a feature phone until the nexus arrives (since my dinc is dead). He said it had to be a smart phone (luckily, my mom has an old blackberry I can use). I'm afraid you might have screwed yourself out of unlimited data

Essentially, yes. I have never had to do this, so I cannot speak from personal experience. Best to ask VZW or someone here with better knowledge of the details on the subject

So that puts him on par, if not better than most of the other extremely vague 'The Sources' around here.

Will be interesting to say the least. Apparently they have found parts of it in every version of iOS since around 3.1ish. I wonder if Apple is collecting the data on it's own.

I have, but I've also been thanking them I like to reel them in for you guys to rip apart, so I just thank everybody. Can't take anything that's just text as very solid information, but it's worth looking at.


I really like the way Darejer questioned him/her, a very good way to build credibility.

I bought the TPU case, it was supposed to arrive today but didn't, not that it matters. Unfortunately I won't be able to answer the question of does it fit the LTE, but they say they built it for the LTE version so I'd assume it does.

if they choose to take away unlimited, they can forget about me and my other 4 lines ever signing a contract with them again. i'm sure i am not the only one with this opinion either.

No worries man, I didn't have unlimited data before. I had the 2gb plan as I just got off (crappy) ATT a little over a month ago. But, when I returned my Amazon bought Bionic, the VZW rep told me that I could not keep my double data plan when switching to a 3g phone (the Dare) so she notated my account saying that I had double data, and to reinstate it when the Nexus came out just in case the Nexus was released after the promotion ended. I rented a Rezound because non-smart phone life was killing me. But the point is, I kept a 2gb plan on a dumbphone, why wouldn't you be able to keep your grandfathered unlimited plan?

SolidOrange - I go to VT. I am looking forward to Saturday, should be a much better game than the first time we met!

I don't know, the fact that he is saying what we already know and doesn't expect anything in return leads me to believe maybe he is telling the truth, or at least what he believes to be true. If he were trolling he would try to get us all worked up by saying something like "Confirmed, Galaxy Nexus delayed until next year due to critical bugs."

Same here.
If they change the contract, then it's in essence cancelling my contract on their end, right?
So, I'd be out free and clear with a nice expensive piece of hardware, and no cancellation fee.
Sounds good to me!

Three different reps have checked for me and said people grandfathered in will NOT lose unlimited data.As long as you were on it before July 7th.

He's given more concrete information that any other sources so far. Excluding Hanette.

Sure he could give a little more info on how he gets his info, but maybe he likes his job. There was a guy NKT in the incredible thread that came up w/ great info at times. He never hung around all day posting inane crap.

The fact that he doesn't hang around here chatting all day should actually be a plus to his credentials.

yep. to make a change to the terms of your contract, they must give you the option to leave.

i dont think they are talking about changing the contract for those who are currently in unlimited, but rather ending the grandfathering into it. so the next time you sign a contract, grandfathering wont be allowed. there was talk that purchasing the phones unsubsidized may be a workaround because you wouldnt be signing a new contract only continuing your current one, but all of this is still in the works and being talked through

If you want out of your contract set up an alert over at slick deals, there's characters over there that watch for stuff that would allow you to bail without an ETF. You see it come up all the time

Do you have a source for this info?

EDIT: Just read your last post, so come March, if I go to upgrade any time after I'll lose my unlimited data unless I buy a new phone out right? That's pretty lame.

The vague one's yes... but not those that have been here for months and/or those that we know already have the phone (P3, BT, Panda, etc...)

Do you (or anyone) know how to just drop one line? My daughter's a $10 add on, and I want to get her onto a different carrier with a smartphone, and cheaper data....

I don't know if he/she is a legitimate tester or just someone looking for attention, but I will say that it isn't really reassuring for any "source" of information when everyone bags on the people offering up what they know. There have been a bunch of testers on this site in the past and many of them handed out some really great information, but most of them didn't want to post in the open forum due to exactly what is happening with this.

If you don't believe someone, that is fine. There isn't any reason to jump all over someone because they aren't willing to reveal everything they know or post pictures or their drivers license. Most of the people that do post are under an NDA and what they are doing could cost them their jobs or even get them a court date. So be nice and accept what people say or ignore it, but don't bash over it.
