    Good to know. it's upgrade time, and I might just get a new phone temporarily until the real phone I want comes out - and then pass it over to anotehr line and upgrade to that phone on my line. My line already has an unlimited plan, but the add-on line to out family plan does not - and I want it on that one now too.

    I do not believe this to be true. I couldn't add the unlimited hotspot to my plan since i don't have unlimited data on the phone.

    anyone else try this?

    Knowing Verizon, I would imagine that there is some sort of "check" or "audit" that can be performed with Verizon's system that will catch accounts that did what was explained in the article above. The customer would then be reverted back to the cap (2GB or whatever level they chose) and couldn't do anything about it, since they signed a contract indicating that they were on tiered data.

    The only reason that I say this is because I had Verizon before, had unlimited texting, swtiched back to a limited plan and for whatever reason, it didn't fully revert back to the limited plan (the price did, but the messages over 500 didn't get charged). 4 months later, I then got a bill for every message over 500 in a billing cycle. I paid the bill, after arguing with 5-6 reps on the customer service line, telling them that they had plenty of time to bill me for those old messages. I got tired of arguing with them, so I paid the $240 bucks they thought I owed them.

    I would imagine they can do this with data as well.
