Is there a way upgrade a phone and keep an unlimited data plan? (Part 1)

Episode 981 (2:03:19)

Matt from Fontana, CA

Matt recently upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and managed to keep his unlimited data plan through Verizon. Leo says that often third party independent cellular stores know of options that the carrier will simply refuse to offer. The independent operator wants to keep his customers happy, not the corporation. Matt says he was able to do it by using one of the other lines on his family plan. Leo says that's a great loophole. However, even "unlimited" isn't always unlimited. He may end up being throttled if he's a heavy data user.
