    Default Verizon says no unlimited data on 3g Dinc to SGIII

    I called support service to verify before pre-ordering online using my upgrade from a HTC DINC and they confirmed moving from Dinc to SGIII would be no issue with keeping unlimited data. I ordered my SGIII on 6/7/12 with the confirmation of my order stating unlimited data and email for smartphone and 4g included. All of a sudden today I received an email stating pre-order does not let me continue unlimited data and to get my phone I had to select a tiered data plan. Then after showing how I pre-ordered prior to 6/28 they changed it to you can't move from a 3g to 4g phone even with pre-order regardless of date or that my order receipt shows unlimited data. Computer error or doesn't matter they guess????? They kept saying if you move to the 2Gig share plan we will send you your phone. Talk about bait and switch. After going through three reps they finally moved me to a supervisor who is stating they are looking into the situation and I am not the only one with this issue. They are supposed to have a resolution sometime early next week according to the supervisor.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or can tell me if they have upgraded from a 3g phone to SGIII and kept unlimited data? I am staying on point that I should have the unlimited plan in a calm manner but my patience is starting to run thin. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Email corporate, they call you back the following business day and will have it corrected.

    Google for "Dan Meade", president. They are really good at getting back to you ASAP.

    I jumped to an LTE phone awhile back, anticipating that Verizon would pull something like that. Good luck, hope you get to keep unlimited. Don't cave.

    I also currently have the DINC and am upgrading to the S3. As far as I can tell, everything seems to be OK. They have already shipped my phone and should be here Monday.. email confirmation says unlimited so I would assume they are legally obligated to abide by the contract terms that I agreed upon.

    wowpaw,
    Please let me know on Monday if all goes as expected. I hope it does for you. I am happy that I have my confirmation as well stating unlimited but they are trying hard to convince me otherwise. Will this be the only phone on your account to convert from 3g to 4g?

    I remember people being told conflicting things about this during the early pre-orders. It is always good to ask that a particular verbal statement be noted in your account. But you can also insist that they retrieve the recording of your call. Anything you can remember about the date and time of the call will be helpful in making your case. Verizon will yield on this point, but it may take some patience and tenacity of your part to find the right person at Verizon.

    I pre-ordered June 6 and my phone is in transit for a 7/9 delivery. I am coming from a 3G and order says 'umlimited'.

    Verizon announced that they would be killing all unlimited data plans even if your were grandfathered in. And even before that whenever anybody upgraded to a 4G device they would have to be moved to a tiered data plan

    I went from 3G to 4G (DXtoS3). Activated the S3 on July 5th and as of right now I still have unlimited.

    Provide link to Verizon statement, please. Otherwise, don't spread misinformation. I have a 2 year contract to continue my unlimited. they can't 'kill all unlimited data plans' if you are on contract.

    when i read the contract it stated verizon reserves the right to change your contract at anytime as long as they give you a 15 day notice, little nervous about this my self. We shall see come Mon.

    I upgraded from the HTC incredible 3G also. I preordered online, and was able to select my unlimited data plan. My gs3 arrived yesterday and I still have unlimited. I am guessing you probably had a bad customer service rep when you placed your order over the phone.

    Received S3 yesterday. My paperwork stated Unlimited Email & Web (29.99). I upgraded from the original DInc that I got back in June 2010.

    Verizon never made this announcement.

    Verizon grandfathered unlimited data plans to be revoked on 4G LTE

    This was the first bit of info about it.

    Verizon Share Everything plan -- shared data plans now available

    And the details of the shared data plans.

    As of June 28th, the shared data plans and this new policy went live, even though they might try to claim June 12th, since thats when they announced the new plans and policies.

    That said, you can keep your unlimited data plan as long as you like, you just won't be able to get a subsidized phone without switching. ($650 for a galaxy s3 then)

    If they change your contract, wouldn't it give you the right to choose to unbind your 2 year contract? For me, I have nothing to worry, I can simply choose another carrier.

    OP, you'll have unlimited data - just wait for them to call you.

    Thanks I am very incouraged by the responses that others have moved from original 3g to SGSIII that Verizon will come back and honor our original agreement. I still cant believe they are arguing with me on this knowing i have an online preorder confirmation stating that I have unlimited data. I just wish they did not try the dangle the carrot in front of the horse trick to get me to change over. We're not going to send your phone until you change over approach is just frustrating.

    She will be fine. Buying off contract does not change anything with your plan.
