Verizon - Staying on Grandfathered unlimited Plan
Has anyone tried to stay on their old grandfathered plan rather than paying for new tiered plan?
I'm looking into phones (Probably Samsung Galaxy SIII) and I can pay full retail ($650) and seemingly keep my old plan. I say this because when I go to check out, the plan cost is the same as before.
I've been looking online to see if there are any clues regarding this and I get mixed reviews. It seems that VZ reps are telling people they can't do this, but when online people have tried, they can. I currently do not have a 3G plan, as I have a Droid X (Because one of the main reasons I use my phone is for GPS and driving directions, I'm not going with IPhone 5, though I do appreciate how nice they are).
The monthly difference is about $60 between the two plans, but I'm worried that I get pay full price for a phone that I still need to switch to a tiered plan. This is because my wife has a flip phone that would cost a whole lot more on the new tiered system (each phone costs $30 or $40)
Thoughts? Has anyone paid full price since the new tiered structured went live in June? Has anyone done this AND moved from 3G to 4G?
