    I've been thinking about selling my charge to help offset the cost of the Prime when it comes out. My problem is that if I activate my old Dinc which I keep as a backup,hench no more 4Gservice will VZW still honor my unlimited plan or will they try to change me to that tiered data crap?

    from what I understand you are grandfathered in and they cant take away your unlimited plan. I would call your rep just to make sure though

    I don't think having or not having 4G affects anything with it as well.

    From what I'm hearing, as long as you are going to another smartphone and not a feature-phone, you will keep your unlimited data plan. It applies both to 3G and 4G phones. Feature phones also had the option for the $29.99 unlimited data package, but it coded differently in Verizon's system than the $29.99 package for smartphones. That's why some customers were confused and upset when they got the $29.99 package for their flip phone hoping to be grandfathered and when they went to a smartphone, they had to get a new, tiered data package.

    I do know that if you move from a 4G to a 3G phone, the LTE sim card in the 4G phone will be deactivated and never work again. When you move to another 4G phone again such as a Bionic, you need to get a new sim card. Its inconvenient but I hear corporate stores will give you a free sim card.

    If you go from a 4G to another 4G phone, you can keep the same LTE sim card.

    When i recieved my Droid Charge i ask the store manager could verizon make me use a tiered program and he said as long as i stayed with a smart phone i would always be an unlimited customer..
    To back that up i called verizon and they told me the same story,, so in fact the story gos like this,,if you are on an unlimited package you will always be on a unlimited package as long as you stick with a smartphone, rather upgrading to a new smart phone or down grading to a smart phone it didnt make any difference as long as I used a smart phone i will always be Unlimited..
