We’re still semi-waiting to see what the aftermath of this past weekend’s unlimited upgrade party on Verizon will be, but wanted to update you on current information. For those who did not choose in-store pickup (decided to have phones shipped) and finalize everything before yesterday afternoon when Verizon patched up what we can only assume was a glitch in the system, we are just now starting to see confirmation and shipping notices go out. At this point, we’re hearing about a couple of situations that you should pay close attention to.
But before we get into this, know that we have word into Verizon PR and are simply awaiting an official response on how this will all shake out. For now, they’ve simply told us that they are aware of the weekend’s festivities and are looking into a variety of questions that we had.
In terms of orders placed with devices shipping, we’re hearing a couple of things from readers. The first, simply suggests that orders have shipped with itemized lists showing unlimited data intact. Assuming these orders stay this way and the phones arrive within the next day, we could see upgrades with unlimited data. That would be awesome.
With that said, we have also heard from a handful of users whose shipping or order confirmations are indeed showing 2GB $ 30 tiered data plans even though their initial ordering screens never once mentioned that they would have to give up unlimited data. Below, you’ll find two screenshots showing a before and after.
Here is what checkout screens looked like (no plan change):
And here is what some confirmation emails are showing (addition of 2GB $ 30 plan):
Once more, we’re patiently waiting for reliable phrase out of Verizon, however for those who obtain a affirmation electronic mail that presentations you now have a 2GB $ 30 plan, you can also need to go beforehand and cancel that unhealthy boy. I’m no longer positive that Verizon may make it any clearer to you that you’re not retaining limitless information. In case your affirmation e-mail does now not express that a brand new 2GB $ 30 plan has been brought to your account, you can also wish to imagine ready this one out. After all, if you happen to lose limitless information, which you can at all times return your cellphone and get your previous plan again. There is also a re-stocking price, simply FYI.
Cheers Gary, Ley, and Tyler!
