If I'm over the limit, then use some Liberty pass data, then increase my plan, what happens to the data limit?

Will the Liberty pass data count against my new plan limit? That is, suppose I'm on Liberty 10, use up my 10 GB, then go into Liberty pass and use another 2 GB. Then if I switch my plan to Liberty 18, do I get 8 GB more, or just 6 GB more because of the Liberty pass data? I assume I get 8 GB more, but wanted to check to be sure.

Hi Steve,   Your current monthly Priority Daga usage under your Liberty plan will transfer to your new plan.  If you go from Liberty 10 to Liberty 18, you'll have 8 additional gigabytes of data.

Ok, so there is no penalty for waiting until later in the month to go up. Good to know.

On a related note, I assume that I will always be able to switch between Liberty plans, so long as my current plan is a Liberty plan. Is that right, or is it possible that if I switch to Liberty 18 I won't be able to switch back to Liberty 10?

Hi Steve,

You are only able to switch back to the plans that are available in the current moment. Exede often changes their plan configurations, so there is no guarantee that a previous plan will continue to be available.

An example of this is Exede used to offer a Liberty 12 plan which is now replaced by the Liberty 10 plan in some areas. So users who had switched up to the Liberty 18 plan now only have the option of downgrading to the Liberty 10 plan (which is 2 GB less than before).

If Exede decides to offer something else besides the Liberty plans (e.g. go back to the Classic plans, etc..) then you'll only be able to switch to what the new offerings are.

A final note, if you upgrade to a plan with the new WiFi modem, you will be unable to downgrade to a plan that doesn't utilize it. This means the extra fee for the modem cannot be removed.

Hope that helps,
Joshua

Hmm, so even staying within the Liberty plans won't guarantee that I can switch back to Liberty 10.

Thanks, that is good to know.

As for Wifi, I have no intention of switching to a plan with a WiFi modem. I don't like WiFi and of course don't want to pay for it. Is that mandatory for some plans? If so, are they marked as such so I can avoid them?

I think the plans are marked wifi  i.e. Liberty 10 wifi  as opposed to just Liberty 10  if you don't have the wifi modem/router
