Now comes word that Verizon has apparently killed the bug, fixed the glitch and will no longer allow those upgrading to a subsidized phone keep an unlimited data plan. The big question is what will Verizon do with any orders that managed to take advantage of whatever problem was occurring with Big Red's website.
Verizon could decide to cancel any orders that should have required its customer to select a capped data plan, and there is precedence for such a decision. Years ago, when an incorrect price showed up briefly for the HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon's system, all orders done at the lower, incorrect price, were canceled.
We will have a call into Verizon once the sun rises in the states to see if we can find out how these orders will be handled. Stay tuned!
