Bought full retail but no option at ordering for unlimited data

So I currently have the unlimited data plan. I bough the iPhone 5 at full retail. During the ordering process, I selected the 2GB option as there was no way to select unlimited.

On my order it shows unlimited feature AND the 2GB data feature.

Do I need to call CS before I activate so I can make sure the unlimited data plan is the one this phone is on?

Sorry if this question has been asked already.

I don't know if you need to, but I would just in case.  It's a lot easier if you can keep unlimited as opposed to loosing it and trying to get Verizon to switch it back.

Good luck,

When I renewed 2 contracts the other day I didn't have the unlimited option either.

From another thread:

I was instructed to pick a plan, but when I receive the phone, to not activate it on my own.  Instead, I am to call customer service to have them convert it back to my "grandfathered" unlimited plan, then they would activate it for me.

Thanks tikibar1. I will call when I get the phone so nothing gets messed up on my plan. I am sure the wait times to speak to a rep are going to take a bit for sure tomorrow.

Actually there was an option to pick your unlimited data plan.  I did the same exact thing and I clicked on the one that said keep unlimited data and email.
