New Data Plans When Upgrading Phones

I recently noticed an ad for a free Verizon smart phone and was about to upgrade two of my family's older technology smart phones when my son pointed out to me that in doing so, I was giving up my unlimited data plan. Sure enough when I called Verizon, it was confirmed that the new plan would not provide unlimited data.


Be advised. If you're a big data user, you may not want to do the hardware upgrade because your new contract will no longer provide unlimited data.

Also when checking into upgrading, be careful if you have a plan that's been "grandfathered" in. Often if you upgrade, you lose that plan and end up paying much more on a new plan.

I have the same problem with Sprint. They won't even let me get a smartphone on my old plan. It's just another way for them to get more money out of us.
