Only thing I can see happening is that Verizon will say in order to upgrade to the newest phones you have to choose a new plan. Remember a few years back when they did this with the nicer of the feature phones?
if you have lte phone and use it on 3 and go over 2 gig you will not be throttled. Only people with 3g phones going over 2gig will be throttle, not those who have an lte phone and use it on 3g.
As long as I can keep it they will have my business. If they start some crazy throttling practices like AT&T or force me off of it I will go prepaid... more than likely PagePlus, and put much less $$ in VZ's pockets.

So does that mean if you currently have a 3G phone (but wanted LTE) and want to keep your unlimited data plan you should buy a 4G phone now? I doubt they would take away your unlimited plan if you already owned a 4G phone.
Also if you're on a family plan, those statements sound to me like they intend to make it so if one person on a family plan upgrades to a smartphone or upgrades their smartphone, they will push everyone on that plan into the data share plan. It may lower the monthly bill a bit, but it caps you into a limit which is just terrible.
Well, this sucks.
Fiber backhaul for Verizon in Southern Illinois in 2013 - about time.
I guess shouldn't have posted this thread. What is it saying if you are already on 4G unlimited? Keep until next upgrade?

No guys. That is a misleading article including the one on BGR today also about ending unlimited 3G plans.
Fair and Balance. Like my favorite fox news. Read it carefully. It states if you want family data sharing you will lose ur unlimited. Duh? Of course that makes sense.
But how can you lose unlimited data if you are on a single line? How exactly are you supposed to "share data" if you have one line and no one to share it with.
That's why all these techie sites are becoming like tmz and radar online.
They do not report the whole truth.
Basically you keep your unlimited data but if any of the lines want family sharing. All current lines will have to be in same share pooled data.
That's what the article is stating.
Moving everyone into a tiered structure... and it wasn't printed, it was spoken out loud at a conference.LTE is our anchor point for data share. So as you come through an upgrade cycle and you upgrade in the future, you will have to go onto a data share plan. And moving away from, if you will, the unlimited world and moving everyone into a tiered structure/data share type plan.
