Last summer Verizon followed AT&T with axing their Unlimited Data, many blamed the coming of Apple’s iPhone which is known to be a data hog. With 4G LTE data speeds hitting 40 megabytes per second and higher, we are going through more data then we used too. Today we are going to show you a nice way of getting unlimited data back on your Verizon line, it’s pretty simple and all based on a glitch in their system in our favor.

Here’s how to do it:

1. Dial *611 from your Verizon phone, or 1-800-922-0204 from any phone.
2. Wait for computer CSR to go through the main menu. You will need your Verizon phone # and account PIN or last 4 of SSN.
3. Hit option 4.
4.¬†When it asks you what you would like to do today say “Add a feature.”
5.¬†If you have a 3G device (which includes all iPhones): Say you would like to add the $20 2GB 3G Mobile Hotspot FEATURE to your phone. If you have a 4G device: Say you would like to add the $30 Unlimited 4G Mobile Hotspot FEATURE to your phone. According to¬†http://stopthecap.com/2011/07/12/…r-account/, they may be able to locate this feature via referencing feature code #76153.
6.¬†Your data plan will now be the $29.99 unlimited data plan, and you’ll have either the 2GB or unlimited Mobile Hotspot feature on top of that.
7.¬†{OPTIONAL – if you don’t want the Mobile Hotspot feature} Log into My Verizon and remove the Mobile Hotspot FEATURE from your account. Many people recommend waiting a few days (at a minimum) to remove the feature. The $29.99 unlimited data plan should remain on your account.
8.¬†If they say they can’t add that feature to your plan, or that you must bundle your data + mobile hotspot service together as a single data plan, tell them thank you, hang up, and repeat the steps above.

Verizon might fix this bug in their system soon so I would say do it as soon as possible so you don’t miss out on it. Let us know in the comments if it worked for you or if you had some trouble.
