My VZW data plan is unlimited again, right?

VzwbillunlimiteddataI’d like to think that my BroadbandAccess (EV-DO) data plan with Verizon Wireless is unlimited again, but I know it isn’t. How do I know that? I know it because I follow the mobile technology industry and as much I’d hope everyone found it as fascinating as I did, the reality is that most consumers really don’t care about it as much as I do. Don’t worry, I forgive them. ;)Those who do follow it know that VZW was advertising “unlimited” data plans and then put some carefully worded soft-caps (at 5 GB a month) in their Terms of Service. Gone are the mentions of unlimited data in marketing materials due to the policy buried in the TOS. Yes, I fully believe that a TOS should be respected, but the fact is, not everyone reads them. People do read their bills though… well, probably not word for word, but the bill has a much higher and recurring focus than a TOS. That’s why I was surprised to see an “unlimited monthly kilobyte” allowance printed prominently at the top left of my billing details.Unless this means that I truly do have an unlimited amount of monthly bandwidth on my plan, I’m asking that someone at VZW look into this further. If the plan is limited by the TOS, consumers shouldn’t see the misleading phrase “unlimited monthly kilobyte” printed anywhere on the bill. If I’m wrong and the soft-cap has been lifted, then the phrase should stay. It’s really that simple to be transparent and truthful… isn’t it?
