    i just called verizon 3x and it appears this is only a rumor. it is not an option for me to add it back on. i was even transferred to the global data department who said the rumors are false.

    Blame the iPhone. That’s why they did it

    Just came back from the UK – there is no unlimited international data plan available, even if your unlimited data plan is grandfathered in.

    @Gabe: I’m confused by your statement. I have the unlimited plan and my service remains unlimited. How would it be otherwise?

    @Tommy: The iPhone isn’t even global on Verizon; it is CDMA only. I don’t see that afecting things.

    @AI: Try having them transfer you to the customer retention group (i.e. tell them you might cancel your account) and those folks are apparently more inclined to make the exception and put that back.

    ok i just tried that. so here is the skinny… if i had the global data plan after Nov 15th 2010, it would show up as an option that the retention dept can add back on. if it was prior to Nov 15th, then the rep has to fill out a form to be determined by another dept. waiting to hear back on the decision. fingers crossed.

    Good luck to all of you guys in getting it back! I have it with Sprint and I, right from the start, ponied up the extra $$ to keep it every month just in case the price went up or they got rid of it… good luck, because I couldn’t live without it anymore!

    I just got off the phone with Verizon…I got told that it’s not November 15th 2010, but January 15th, 2011. I last turned off on January 9…not happy. They wouldn’t budge. Tried twice, same answer both times.

    Just an update – I spoke to them, and now they are saying if you had it within the last 60 days, you can get it readded to your account (but supervisor approval is still required).
