Ok, so I have two lines currently with grandfathered unlimited. If I do decide to stay with Verizon, and not change any thing about my plan I will get to keep my grandfathered unlimited data, right? If I were to even pay out of my pocket for a 4G phone I will still get to keep it?
So I have a family plan, and I'm the only with smartphone with the unlimited data.im willing to pay for the phone without the subsidy, but what happens when my parent decided to upgrade their feature phone

Shelly, I've been struggling with the same question regarding the two smartphone plan with unlimited data. We use less than 1 GB even without using WiFi whenever possible. Our plan is 1400 minutes unlimited texting, unlimited data, and would cost $200 /mo except we get a $20 discount off each data plan for a net cost of $160 with taxes. For that same amount under the new plan, we would get unlimited minutes, unlimited texting and 2GB data, more than twice we ever use. Here's the catch. I'm not willing to give up the subsidy we get on new smartphones every 20 months which amounts to about $900 or about $45 per month to preserve unlimited data that we don't need. YMMV

If you use a lot of data and I mean a lot (think excess of 50GB per month) then keeping the unlimited data and forgoing the subsidy is advisable. Or if you are using the unlimited plans on data-only devices then that's a good reason to remain status quo. If your situation is more like TWC42 then the decision to go to the other side is a little easier.
No you wil not keep the unlimited, I just tried to do that today and they said I would have to change my plan, They HATE the ppl who still have the unlimited plans and are trying evrything to get you off them.
Were you trying to activate a new smartphone on a line that already have the smartphone unlimited data plan? Or were you trying to activate a new smartphone on a line that had the feature phone unlimited data plan?
Remember that if you pay full price for a device, you will keep unlimited. Now if you go into a Verizon store and try that, sales reps will do everything they can to force you into a tiered plan. I wonder if it won't be better to buy the unsubsidized devices online for this very reason.

You can keep your unlimited plan as long as you don't ask VZW for a new contract. VZW will honor your current contract, even if you are past the minimum 2-years, for probably forever.
Ask for a new contract, for what ever reason there is, and VZW will require that new contract to contain only their current data offerings (tiered, shared, or whatever).
