Things are back to normal at Verizon, unlimited data plan bug has been fixed
We've received some information that the loophole everyone jumped on last night, where users were able to use a subsidized upgrade without losing their unlimited data, has been officially closed by Verizon HQ.
If you don't keep up-to-date with this sort of thing, users on Verizon that wanted to keep the old unlimited data plan are unable to sign an new agreement and get their new phone at the subsidized rate. Last night, folks started taking advantage of a recent "glitch" in the system that allowed you to get the contract price, sign a new two year agreement, but still keep the unlimited data.
Now that the issue has been "fixed" by Verizon, there's no telling how they are going to deal with the users who took advantage of the bug this weekend. If you grabbed a phone this way, you'll want to pay very close attention to any and all communication from Big Red.
