Getting an iPhone4S now that the 5 is out?

Maybe this has been discussed but here goes....

I have a family plan with 3 lines (2 smart and 1 dumb phone) with unlimited data on the smartphones. One of the smartphones (the original Droid) is eligible for an upgrade and is barely usable. I don't want an iPhone5. A 4S or even a 4 would do fine. Would it be possible to upgrade the droid to a 4S/4 and still keep the unlimited plan. Or do we lose both our unlimited data plans if we upgrade even a single line.

You would lose the unlimited data plan on whichever line you upgraded (subsidized a new phone). Your other line would retain it's unlimited data plan until you actually subsidized a new phone for that line.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

I know how important it is to make sure your family has the right plans and devices to meet your needs yantra! I go through the same analysis with my family!

You have options! You can keep your unlimited data plan if you upgrade at full retail price or you can qualify for a discount if you're eligible by choosing a current tiered data plan or a share everything plan. Please be aware if you choose a share everything plan, you will have to change all the lines on your account. Here's a great link for more info!

I see the link, but what is a current tiered data plan? Can the new 4S remain on the family plan but pay 2GB, 4GB or whatever? Everyone else can stay on the unlimited in the family plan????
