Deal Details

For those who purchased a Verizon smartphone after the unlimited data ended, you can still get unlimited data by calling *611 and asking them to add unlimited MHS. A 4G phone is required. You may have to be persistent, and it may take several calls, but I was able to do it with one call. A "perk" of adding unlimited MHS is that you will be pushed to unlimited data as well, according to the rep I talked to. I checked online, and sure enough, my friend's account that I was trying it on had unlimited data and unlimited MHS. If at a future time, you feel you do not need MHS, you can cancel mhs (you can do it online) and it has been reported that you still keep unlimited data.

When i talked to the rep, at first, he was trying to get me to switch to a data plan that had data and mhs. This is not what you want, you want to have the mhs as a feature addon.

ymmv of course on these types of promos.

edit: mhs = mobile hot spot $30/mo addon feature. as said before, you can remove it any time and your unlimited data should remain.
The $30 is for the month, if, say you use it for 15 days, then it will be prorated to $15 and so on.

Edit looks like some are able to do it with 3G phones as well, unlimited data but 2gb mhs.

Does this Verizon loophole still exist? I called them and the CSR had no idea what I'm talking about.
You will want to check out the last few pages of this thread [androidcentral.com]. There are several techniques you can use depending on how your account is set up. Don't waste your time with a CSR.

Epic fail. Vzw declined to grant me the $29.99 for unlimited. Now I have to spend an extra 2 days with vzw reps to transfer upgrade and swap phones with my basic lines. Sry for the ppl with only smartphone phones.

I just tried this and the rep agreed and did some stuff and asked me if I wanted anything else. I checked om My Verizon and did not see any changes, maybe it will take some time to show up?
