We all knew this day was coming but now it is officially here. During a recent conference call, Verizon Wireless CFO Fran Shammo announced that Verizon Wireless would not be honoring customers who were “grandfathered” in their unlimited data plans when they choose to upgrade. Customers will be forced to pick between the selection of tiered data plans that Verizon has to offer.
This news is kind of disappointing to hear from Verizon Wireless, who is the number one carrier in the US. It is not yet clear if this policy will apply to customers who decided to purchase their upgrade off-contract through Verizon or other retail services. If you are a Verizon customer who still has their unlimited data, either hurry and upgrade or do not upgrade ever again!
This is the best deal possibly anywhere on the web. Wirefly is selling the Verizon Galaxy Nexus for $50 for new customers.

Just head on over to the link to take advantage of this great deal.
Verizon is currently emailing certain “loyal” customers who are close to an upgrade to take part in a special sale. This sale rewards these loyal customers with the choice of upgrading to Verizon’s latest devices such as: Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Motorola Droid RAZR and the Samsung Stratosphere for free.
That’s right, absolutely free. Customers will have to sign a new two year contract of course to take advantage of this amazing deal. So cross your fingers and keep a close eye on that email inbox of yours.
