Although Verizon has said that it will no longer support grandfathered unlimited data plans for users upgrading to LTE smartphones, it seems some users have had success with porting over their unlimited data plans to the company’s speedy 4G network. Clinton Stark of Stark Insider says that he recently upgraded from his original Motorola DROID to a Samsung Galaxy S III and was able to renew his $29.99 unlimited data plan without a hitch. However, Stark also warns that the ability to grandfather your unlimited plan won’t be around much longer and he suggests upgrading to a new LTE phone soon before Verizon catches on.
