    Has anyone been able to pre-order the s7 and keep their unlimited data? I tried doing it myself and it tells me I need to select a new data plan and when I talk to the online chat folks they tell me to call customer service.

    You won't. I confirmed all over. Step through it and you can see where your plan stays the same on the final page before actually completing the order.

    It also works if you have AT&T U-verse.

    I had unlimited Data and when I got a new phone when I was Verizon (now I'm on AT&T thank goodness) they had me switch to a new data plan.

    Not that bad really, I sold my Note5 for about $500. I also had a $50 gift card for Worst Buy. S7 edge will only cost me about $200.

    I had to call in to pre-order the S7 for my wife and I to keep our unlimited plan. But the nice thing about that was we were able to get the monthly payment plan and the $100 discount promo. And we still qualify for the gear vr promo.

    When trying to order online, it would show that I was keeping my old plan but NOT the unlimited data. There's a difference between the data plan and the talk/text plan. It would only display the new data plan options and if you didn't select one you were losing your data plan.

    Anyone who is saying otherwise will be in for a rude awakening when they activate their new phones.

    Interesting. It told me I had to select a new data package. I tried ignoring it and clicked on continue but it wouldn't let me move past that page.

    I was able to click past that screen with the data plan options, but on the final page it showed only my talk/text plan info. The data plan line was missing. Confirmed it by checking the math in the order total. If you went past that point without the data plan showing..... I'd be very surprised if you still had unlimited data when you activate your S7.

    Verizon explicitly said that unlimited data can keep unlimited when going to dpp, so long as you aren't on contract. If unlimited data dissappeared then contact Verizon to Reinstate it
