When we mention "grandfathered" regarding our data plans, this means you will be able to keep your current price plan and features until you make changes to your account. If you do not upgrade your phone, you will be able to keep your Unlimited Data feature; however, if you were to upgrade your phone after the changes to our data feature requirement, you will have to take advantage of our newer plans and lo...
I sent an email and actually discussed on the phone with Verizon. He basically said to watch the website for an official date for the tiered pricing.
I have the Droid 1 and have been messing with ROM's which added life to my OG - waiting on the Bionic. Well that may not be the case now. I may have to upgrade early to a different 4G smartphone to get locked in.
