You may have heard over the weekend that Verizon’s website was somehow allowing people to upgrade their phones at full subsidized two-year contract pricing without losing unlimited data. It was an anomaly for sure, and it’s something Verizon patched up rather quickly. Earlier reports suggested Verizon would look to yank the rug from beneath those who were lucky enough to take advantage, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Verizon has acknowledged the issue, and has come out to clearly state that they would honor the upgrades and would allow those customers to continue on with unlimited data. Here is an excerpt from the statement being sent to media:
Verizon Wireless will honor those orders that were approved this past weekend, allowing those customers to retain their unlimited plans for the duration of their contract and receive their new device.
Of course, they were quick to remind us that the error has been patched up, and that unlimited data is no longer something they are offering as of over a year ago. While we’ve all had our fair share of words for Verizon over the years, you have to applaud their nobility in honoring this mistake.
