    1 year contract extension to Grandfathered Unlimited Data Plan (gUDP)

    Since it is hard to keep Grandfathered UDP lines in contract I wanted to let everyone know how it worked for me.

    Today I was successful in adding 364 days to my contract on 2 different lines by calling Verizon Wireless at 800-922-0204 and asking for them to switch the line that was on the Nationwide Unlimited Talk Text with gUDP to Feature Code 89736 - 30 min Loyalty Plan for $15/month and then switch the line back to Nationwide Unlimited Talk, Text with gUDP.

    On the second line that was already on the 89736 - 30 min Loyalty Plan for $15/month. She switched it to the Nationwide Unlimited Talk Text with gUDP and then I had to switch it back to the Loyalty Plan. I have Texting blocked on this line to save the $10 a month texting charge and in the the process that was added back to the line. So I called back a second time and had them remove the 1000 texts that were added to the line in the switch.

    I verified all the changes were correct in myVerizon before hanging up the phone.

    My account is as follows:
    Line 1 - Nationwide Unlimited Talk, Text gUDP
    Line 2 - 30 min Loyalty Plan for $15/month, No Texting, gUDP
    Line 3 - 30 min Loyalty Plan for $15/month, No Texting, gUDP
    Line 4 - 30 min Loyalty Plan for $15/month, No Texting, gUDP
    Line 5 - 30 min Loyalty Plan for $15/month, No Texting, gUDP

    Hope this helps someone else.

    So did the Verizon employee know ahead of time that you were going to switch to a plan, and then immediately switch it back again?

    Will that result in any bill charges to your account?

    Yes the Verizon employee knew I was trying to extend the contact to keep the $29.99 Data and the avoid the drawbacks of the new "so called unlimited plan". She was very helpful and easy to work with. And there should be no bill changes cause the changes were all in the same day and did not differ from what the plan was prior to the extension. But if there are additional charges I will advise.
