We left a doubt symbol on that pretension given we’re not accurately certain if Verizon has meant to concede business to keep total information when upgrading or if there is simply a glitch in a system. But yes, during this time, a series of a readers (including us) have been means to walk-through a ascent routine on Verizon’s site and keep total information while purchasing a phone during a subsidized (discounted) price.
As we all know, Verizon killed off total information some time ago and has given attempted each pretence in a book to get those of us unresolved onto total skeleton to give them up. But yesterday, we perceived a integrate of tips suggesting that we could ascent to a new phone and switch over to Verizon’s newly introduced $30 6GB devise (called Verizon Max) that was formerly tied to Verizon Edge, yet carrying to indeed pointer adult for Edge. As we looked into it, we walked by a ascent routine and didn’t see a choice for 6GB during $30, yet instead found ourselves during a final stairs of checkout with a total information package intact. At no time were we asked to switch off of a total package or told that a devise no longer exists.
See a screenshot below.
In prior ascent attempts, we strike a shade above and were shown a stream devise along with a new plan. The stream devise showed a total information package, while a new roughly always showed that a devise was being altered to a tiered package, customarily 2GB for $30. But as we can see, that’s not a box here.
To make certain we weren’t devising things, we motionless to lay parsimonious on this info and see if others were saying identical results. As it turns out, they are. We have now had during slightest 5 or 6 readers who have left by an ascent routine on Verizon’s site and been means to keep total data. Well, during slightest Verizon’s website is creation it seem that way. We would be semi-hesitant to trust that this isn’t a glitch in a complement that Big Red won’t scold before long. we only wish that they don’t locate a bug and try to barter skeleton around after or when a phone arrives and business activate them (or barter in a SIM). At this time though, we don’t know how that will play out.
Not that this creates a conditions any clearer, yet we did discuss with a patron use repute for a few mins who seemed to trust that with a information we was seeing, that we was going to keep my total information plan. we asked if there was a special graduation going on, and they pronounced that they weren’t wakeful of one. Had we finished checking out, a repute was peaceful to hang on a line to make certain that all went by properly.
And last, remember that a “VERIZON30″ banking formula still works, so $199 phones are $139.
Sooooooo, are we peaceful to ascent and see if we can keep your total data? At this point, we have had a whole garland of people see identical formula to ours. Is it value a risk?
Update: As of 3:00PM Pacific, it appears as if Verizon has removed a choice to keep total data. we theory we’ll see how this all unfolds over a entrance days. Will they let we all keep total information or not?
Cheers Derek, BKShaw23, David, John, and Peter!
