    Probably will have to go into a Verizon Store to do the upgrade.

    Will this work for those of us still on Alltel Smartphone plans if upgrading to a 4G phone? I have a DX and my daughter has a Droid 1 and I do not want to lose my plan as it is significantly cheaper than even the previous Verizon unlimited data plans. I have unlimited data and unlimited text/pix/flix messages built into my plan.

    I'm grandfathered with a Thunderbolt. What if I decide to go with a 4G tablet? Will I be able to transfer my unlimted data to that device?

    TIA

    No, phones and tablets are completely different data plans. Tablets have the same data plans as the MiFis.

    Sorry if this has been answered but in a year and a half when my contract is up and I want a new phone, will I lose the unlimited data when signing a new contract or do you have to agree to that change?

    WuBoy,

    I think the consensus is that if you had an unlimited data plan before on your phone before July 7th, you will retain that feature when you upgrade that phone (line).

    See post #18 above (http://androidforums.com/verizon/369960-unlimited-now-always-unlimited-3g-4g.html#post2928110) from VZW_CS for a little more detail.

    Cheers!

    "Always" as in until they decide otherwise, lol. They will eventually force you to change with upgrade. As a former VZ employee, I have seen this before with other types of plan changes. They'll do the grandfathered upgrades for a little while, then force you to change.
