    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



    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




    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.

    So do you know the answer to the question, can Verizon remove unlimited data and not void the contract?

    I am no lawyer by any means but I find it hard to believe they would change the terms of a feature mid contract to something less than what you agreed and then require you to have that feature on a phone you paid for without letting you opt out of contract. Seems like a PR nightmare for verizon. Not that it matters to me being I have been out of contract for a while now.

    If they were to do that while the line is under contract I believe they would have to let you out of your contract ETF free but they are smarter than that. If they do that they would wait till 24 months after the last person could have signed a 2 year contract grandparented in. At that point everyone with unlimited data will be month to month customers and it would not matter since they can leave at any time anyway. When you are a month to month customer they can do whatever they want since the contract is no longer in effect.

    I'm pretty sure we will lose unlimited eventually anyway. I just don't see where it's tied to a contract is all.

    I don't think they will take unlimited away while in contract for the PR. What's going to be bad is the people that buy a phone at full retail so they can keep unlimited data and then Verizon takes it away

    According to the manager at the store I went to today, all unlimited data plans will default to 2 gig plans on September 1st or 2nd. I am not sure if he was trying to trick me out of my unlimited, but I told him we'll see.

    They have got another year until the last of the grandparentrd unlimited plans will be out of contract so this is unlikely. Also like when they raised the price on Extended Warranty and Total Equipment Coverage we all had to get written notice 60 days ahead of it so I think he's blowing smoke.

    I could see that happening next year though.

    My guess is that the likelihood of this would be very low. Ask him to show you the documentation backing up this claim... If he can't or won't, chances are he is pulling your leg. Verizon usually leaks policy changes ahead of the actual change date.

    Rumor has been refuted.

    I just got my unlimited data plan renewed for 2 more years starting 12/1/2013-12/1/2015 by doing an upgrade transfer to and upgrading on my dummy line then switching the new phone to my UDP line. So they will have to wait another 23 months to kick me off of unlimited data!
