My husband needs a new cell.  He has an original Droid and it is running very slow.  He wants a new 4G cell.  We have the Verizon unlimited data plan.  So if he uses his Verizon upgrade we have to go to a shared limited plan.  Anyone know of options to buy a new cell and keep the unlimited data plan???

From everything I have heard, you can only keep your unlimited plan by paying full price for the new phone. If you want a subsidized phone with a lower price, you will need to get a new contract.

Choose wisely. New “must have” phones come out almost every week.
