About a month ago the news came out that Verizon Wireless was killing their unlimited international data plans for all smartphone devices. Not only was this a huge blow to folks who travel a lot in terms of roaming costs, but it was also rather unexpected as there was no announcement that the plan was going away before it abruptly disappeared. It seems that the company has received enough negative feedback on this change that they are now reconsidering their position.
If you have ever had the plan previously and were following the financially sound practice of turning it off and on as needed it seems that you have one last chance to get it back. Many users are reporting that they are able to get the plan put back on their account "one last time" as an exception to the new policies. While this means it will still be more expensive to have the plan on "full time" rather than as needed, it is definitely less expensive than the new roaming rates, especially if you travel farther afield than Europe and the Caribbean.
Make the call now if you want the plan back. No telling how long VZW will keep this grandfathering option available.
