This has been confirmed to work for the Optimus V, Elite, Wildfire, and Venture. The Triumph and a few other devices released before 5/27 should work. The One V will not work.

Go to, click "manage my account", then click "change plans". On the bottom, there should be a link that says "don't see the plan you want?" click that and you can switch to the $25 plan. This includes unlimited text, data, and 300 minutes.

Not sure if this is a glitch or limited time special, so hurry! If you want to activate one of the aforementioned phones, then activate it, don't pay for the $35 plan, and then switch to the $25 plan in the account page.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I just got off chat (don't worry) and asked which phones allow me to keep me grandfathered plan. The person said as long as I have been
a customer since July 20 2011 using a beyond talk unlimited data plan (not the paylo plan), I can buy ANY PHONE and it'll stay on the grandfathered rate as long as I keep paying my bills on time.

This means it doesn't have to be something that was released before May 2012
**Any beyond talk unlimited data plan phone, not paylo plan phones.

Please reply back if this actually works.....if so I'm buying an EVO V!!

^^ That is not accurate. Phones after May 2012 will not work except the Elite.

This doesn't work anymore, move along people. But who knows, it may come back again sometime.

I recently did an upgrade to a samsung galaxy victory, long story short, they could never activate the data on it. So I went back to my old phone. Now they refuse to give me back my $25 plan! Even supervisors say no way. Anyone else had better luck or another path to try than calling the 800#?

Yea once you leave the $25 plan theres no way to go back.
Hence it being "grandfathered" only.

Does anyone have any idea when VM is going to bump us grandfathered people up to $35? I know it hasn't been announced, but how long do things like this last?

I don't really see a need for them to bump up grandfathered $25 plan to piss off existing customers. In a few years, people will naturally want to upgrade their phones to better and faster ones with 4g and willingly be bumped to a higher rate.
