How to keep your unlimited data on Verizon with an iPhone 5

 

If you are Verizon subscriber, you already know that you are paying way too much for your phone service. The trade off has always been great service. It is not a network that traditionally has drop offs. Now with almost every carrier is switching to LTE and VOIP; that should be less of a differentiator. Verizon is giving an option that seems to me unfair to its customers. If you already have an unlimited data plan and want to keep it when you update to the iPhone 5; you can but there is a catch.

The nation’s No.1 wireless carrier confirmed that FaceTime over cellular will be free on all data plans without having to switch to a new shared data plan. However, remember that catch that I mention before? Turns out subscribers with grandfathered unlimited data plans can keep their plans with the new iPhone 5 but they will have to pay full price. That’s right to keep all that unlimited goodness your looking at spending $649 or more. If you are a Verizon subscriber, now is the time to ask your self how badly do you want an iPhone 5. It maybe time to move over to AT&T who confirmed on Wednesday that its subscribers with unlimited data plans will be able to keep their plans and still pay subsidized prices for the iPhone 5. Sprint remains the only carrier to offer everyone unlimited data plans.

If you are an existing customer and want to keep your Nationwide Usage Based plan, you can keep your plan, purchase the iPhone at the discounted price with a 2 yr customer agreement. If you have a Verizon Wireless unlimited data plan, you can pay full price for your iPhone 5 and keep your unlimited data plan.
