    if Verizon force all grandfathered unlimited plan customers into tiered or share-everything plans,
    how many of you will bolt and switch to another carrier?

    This could only be done at the end of the contract. At which time I might very well remain with Verizon but convert to prepaid. (I really don't want to leave the most complete 4G network available.)

    I could definitely see this happen, unfortunately.

    Once you are our of contract they are under no obligation to honor the old plans. They have always done so but things change.

    I thought Verizon discontinued offering unlimited data plans sometime in 2011. I can't remember what month that took place, but it's safe to say that all contracts for people with grandfathered unlimited data plans will come an end at the end of this year. As soon as that happens, Verizon may make a move and kill off unlimited data for EVERYBODY.

    There nothing people can do if Verizon decides to change all unlimited data plans to 2GB only.

    They stopped offering it to new lines and new customers in 2011 but allowed people to sign contracts grandparenting them in until last year. Since then signing a new contract would forfeit unlimited data. But people can still buy full retail, buy used or certified like new devices without loosing it.

    Four smartphones and my mom's line would be leaving... As it is, we're having to get whatever we can that's used, so going to another provider via prepaid wouldn't be an issue. Sadly, staying with VZW and not getting newer phones just feeds them more profits. Bit of a dbl edged sword, IMO.

    Really? Because I have been out of contract since January of this year. At that time I had the gs3 then a few months later I paid retail for the note 2. Nobody said I had to give up my unlimited data.

    I also know 2 other people who have been out of contract with them for over a year n still have unlimited.

    You've misinterpreted what I said, which was that Verizon could not terminate unlimited before my contract ended ... not that, once it ended, they necessarily would.

    Verizon can terminate your unlimited data whenever they want to, it is a feature that can be added and deleted anytime you want, it is not tied to your contact. Try it, call and tell them you want to turn data off, they will do it no questions asked, no etf, then try to turn your line off, then you will hear about the etf.

    Verizon will not turn data off on any smartphone..... only dumbphones and features phones can have data disabled... or has this policy changed?

    No, Verizon cannot "terminate unlimited data whenever they want to." They are obligated by contract to continue it throughout the contract period. After that time, all bets are off, and they may terminate the program or not depending on their market research findings.

    There is about as much nonsense being spouted off in this thread as in the rest of the forum combined.

    Smartphones require data plan, no way to get a smartphone on Verizon without one, even if you bought the phone unsubsidized.

    Data is not part of your contact hence why you don't get a ETF if you go back to a dumb phone and drop data. You only get a ETF if you drop the phone part, data is a feature.

    Look at the family plans where people have a dummy line so they can use it for upgrades. They upgrade the line with a smart phone which adds data to that line, the same day they put the new smart phone on the other line and activate a dumb phone on the just upgraded line and data drops off. If data is part of the contract you would be charged a ETF on the upgraded line.

    Go sign up for service on Verizon site, there is no plans that include data, the data is under add features. Even the shared plans data is a added feature. Features are not part of the contract, can be dropped and added as many times as you want. And of course we could call Verizon and ask this question to 4 reps and we would get 4 different answers. So until or if Verizon pulls unlimited data it really doesn't matter, more then likely Verizon will leave unlimited data alone until your contact is up for public relations if they cut it all together.

    Data is most certainly part of my contract. (I'm not telling you it's part of yours; I haven't seen your contract.)

    Either way I'm sure Verizon won't take anyone's unlimited data away till their contract is up if they do it at all.

    The key section being the following:

    Can Verizon Wireless Change This Agreement or My Service?
    We may change prices or any other term of your Service or this agreement at any time,but we'll provide notice first, including written notice if you have Postpay Service. If you use your Service after the change takes effect, that means you're accepting the change. If you're a Postpay customer and a change to your Plan or this agreement has a material adverse effect on you, you can cancel the line of Service that has been affected within 60 days of receiving the notice with no early termination fee if we fail to negate the change after you notify us of your objection to it.
    Bottom line: if they change the data plan, I can cancel service without paying an ETF.

    I see it says service which I think means your line, data is listed as a feature if you look online. I am under contract and I have the option to remove my data but I do not have the option to remove or cancel my line of service. If data is part of the contract I don't think we would be able to remove it.

    If data is part of our contact how are we able to upgrade a line with a smart phone then cancel the data put a dumb phone on that said line, there would be a ETF for the data portion, Verizon only requires us to have the line of service for duration of contract. Verizon calls it alternate upgrade.

    I'm looking for specific wording about data contract, but not finding it, so you could be right, but I wouldn't think Verizon would have alternate upgrades and allow us to drop the data part if data was part of the contract. It's a mystery and Verizon probably won't yank it while on contract anyway.

    When you sign a 2 year contract you are agreeing to pay for that line of service and abide by the Terms of Service (which are subject to change ) for 24 months

    Data is most certainly part of my contract. (I'm not telling you it's part of yours; I haven't seen your contract.)
    The requirements
    to have data or not had to do with the kind of device on the line. If you upgrade or sign up with a smartphone you have to have data but if you put a basic phone on the line you can remove it. Likewise if you sign up with a basic phone and switch to a smartphone you have to add it. You can change to any supported phone at any time and change to any current plan that supports that phone at any time


    So you can't turn your data off without paying a ETF? I know smart phones require data but you can change to a dumb phone and drop the data.

    Either way I'm sure Verizon won't take anyone's unlimited data away till their contract is up if they do it at all.

    If too switch to a basic phone yes you can remove the data plan and no the ETF will not apply. However the amount of the ETF is assigned when you sign based upon the kind of devices you bought at subsidised pricing.

    An exception is with some third party sellers like Amazon and LetsTalk who have additional strings where if you remove the data in the first 6 months and a fee is assessed by them directly.
