    This is directed at the people renewing their contract for the new nexus phone.

    All of us on verizon still unlimited data. if we decide to upgrade will we inherit that crappy 2gb data cap?

    Maybe theres someone on here that works at verizon could give us the answer? I thought about this earlier today and i dont think itll change my decision to buy the Nexus Prime, but i wont like the 2gb cap at all...

    If there is that data cap, would it change your decision to buy the Prime?

    You should be grandfathered into an unlimited data contract, as long as you continue to renew the contract of an existing line.

    If you add a line or sign a new contract, you will not have unlimited data.

    When I upgraded to the Bionic I was able to keep my unlimited plan. I ended up returning it. When I decide to get the Prime, I will still be able to stay under the unlimited plan.

    Just to clarify, you can still get unlimited data when upgrading IF and only if you were already a Verizon customer with a smartphone (3G or 4G) with an unlimited data plan as of July 7th. If you are on Verizon and are upgrading from a feature phone you can't get unlimited data.

    Edit: Also supposedly this is how Verizon is dealing with things right now, but it is subject to change in the future, and they probably will not grandfather unlimited data users forever, so when you do upgrade I would check you next bill to make sure they didn't "accidentally" move you over to a tiered data plan.

    I'm unlimited and never come anywhere near 2 GB a month. Now I expect that to change using a 4G phone.

    Ya last month I used about 11 gigs of data. Downloading and flashing 2 separate roms a day will do that.
