    There's a difference in saying you were definitely throttled vs. suspecting you were throttled.

    Throttling happens at peak hours often here. Hits my wife's fascinate as well. It happens, honest.

    You do know that at peak hours it could just be a matter of network congestion, right?

    With that kind of gnome porn I would think you are getting there. So many factors are in play though to get throttled....

    I think next month I am going to see how much I can suck down intentionally to see where my limits are

Thank for the info everyone.

    Have you been notified by Verizon that you may be network optimized as described here?

Unless I pay the remainder of the contract AND upgrade my phone at that price now? How is US Cellular by the way? Dont hear much about them. Seems like an older crowds phone company and I mean no offence by that. Just kind of does lol.

    I dont use that much data to worry too much about it honestly. Its about a company like them or Comcast who have more or less cornered the main market on things and think they can take what I payed for away even if its only in writing. I dont notice a difference in my speeds at all so let them keep doing whatever they are doing. But stop F'n over the customers is all I am saying

    You can't pay off your contract, at least it isn't official policy.you can keep unlimited so long as you buy a no contract phone.

    I'm trying to understand the meaning of going from 3G to 4G LTE part in my case. I upgraded from a BB to the Rezound last November and was grandfathered to unlimited data. At the moment, we have no 4G LTE anywhere in the state. So, is that momentous "going from/to" will occur when we, at some point in the future, get 4G LTE?

    Well the problem is that I like this phone and would like to keep even after the upgrade or contract date is up. I dont need new and rocket speeds. This phone has been the most reliable I have owned from them. I may change my mind come next year though so it boils down to paying them full price for their phones or buying something from an amazon or ebay etc?? Oh well. Someone said it already. It is what it is and there's only few options to choose from. Guess I will decide when the time comes. I say screw it and bring back the beeper Ha!

    They want LTE everywhere, it is only a matter of time before you get it. How long you will wait is the question

    So long as you don't sign a new contract, then you will be fine you could keep the phone for 10 years and still retain unlimited data under the latest verizon communique.

    It doesn't mean anything. The cfo made a comment, but verizon back peddled. Basically, 3g and 4glte devices will be treated the same, if you upgrade and sign a new contract after the date they set, then you would lose unlimited regardless of device type.

    But, with regards to your specific question, your rezound is considered a 4glte device, even if you never connect to 4glte.

    I guess my question was about the situation when the person (me) has a 4g phone, but no 4g yet available. Will they switch me from the unlimited data plan when 4g appears locally?

    It's all about the device, not the coverage.

    They will switch you no matter if you have it or not IF you renew your contract after a date that hasn't been determined yet.

    From what I understand, you're looking for an easy answer that's straight forward and simple.

    So here goes:

    You already have a 4G enabled device, and your account is already marked for 4G service.

    When you finally get 4G service local to you, your account will not change.

    When will your unlimited data be changed?

    That's to be determined. We know that at this point if you "renew" your contract on an upgrade, VZW will take away the unlimited data plan then. The proposed solution to this is that once our contracts are up, we proceed to just pay monthly for the same service, and if we want a new device then we need to buy it at full retail price as opposed to taking advantage of the subsidies VZW offers on new devices provided you extend your contract for another 2 years.

    In the mean time though, you're still at the mercy of VZW. If they really wanted to, I'm sure they could change the terms of the contract so long as they notify you (giving you the chance to exit the contract without paying the early termination fee), or wait until your contract is up and just deny the unlimited data service.

    I doubt that they would change the terms while on contract. Even off contract, I don't think that they would do it.

    In the past, they wanted you to re-sign you contract early and offered some kind of incentives for doing so. Maybe the unlimited data can be made into a negotiating point. It may come down to whether early commitments are more or less valuable to them vs. the estimated spread-around cost of unlimited data.
