    I've seen it mentioned in a few of the threads scattered between this and the S3 forum about calling VZ to activate to ensure you keep your unlimited data plan. I've always just activated phones OTA via *228. What are everyone's thoughts on how to activate when we start receiving our S3s?

    LTE phones can't/won't activate over the *228 that 3g phones do. They activate using their LTE sim cards that verizon programs to your number.

    I had planned on doing from the Verizon Wireless website under My Verizon / Activate or Switch Device, but it's locked out (can't select my current phone, only New Line). So I guess I'll have to call (800) 922-0204 to activate my SIII. Unless the SIII shows up on My Verizon after they ship. Guess I'll find out on the 10th.
