Hi, I've seen a few people mention the possibility of buying a data device (tablet, hotspot, etc) and then not activating it in order to renew the $29.99 gUDP for another two years, but I don't recall seeing anybody report success with this method. Currently, Verizon's preorder portal insists that doing so will force the entire account to change to the new Verizon plan.

Can anybody confirm what actually happens if this is attempted?

Thank you!
