    WELL 1. *228 won't work with 4g phones, and 2 simply placing the sim in will activate it. Not sure how it screwed up your unlimited unless you upgraded then you were going to lose it regardless.

    Yeah *228 works on 3g devices, not 4g. Not sure how activating an old device would take away your data since its the same plan and not changing anything. But that's why I always do in store and ask like 10 times if I still have unlimited data
