    Unlimited Data

    I currently have unlimited data, and I'm do for an upgrade. I'm thinking about getting the new iPhone when it comes out, but I have a question. If I upgrade will I lose my unlimited data?

    As long as your unlimited data is for a smartphone.

    Nope, once you have it, you keep it, as long as you only use/upgrade to smartphones. You can't go to a dumbphone.

    And the key factor is that he didn't originally have a smart phone unlimited data feature.

    I have a question:

    My wife and I are on individual plans, and we both currently have smartphones with unlimited data. We are thinking of doing a Family Plan, as she gets a better discount than I do through her work.

    The question is, would we lose the unlimited data feature if I join my line to her account and do a Family Plan?

    We both plan on reupping when the iPhone 5 is released, so wanted to know what action I should take. Thanks!

    Transferring your line over shouldn't effect your unlimited data. You're not really changing anything except the ownership of the line.

    How about if you move from a 3G smartphone (OG Droid) to the 4G Nexus Prime once it drops? I read something about 3G and 4G data plans being different? Wouldn't make sense but would appreciate a confirmation.

    You get to keep unlimited when moving from a 3G to 4G smartphone.
