    It appears the large majority of the people on the forum on Verizon have some form of existing traffic. Anyone planning to start a new plan with Verizon jumping ship from their existing carrier for their "ripoff 100 bucks for 2 gigs" plan? If so, what carrier are you jumping from/to?

    Mobile Share plans are the devil ! You can still get 2 gigs for $30

    Yes, I am. I'm leaving AT&T. I've been very satisfied with them, but I'm jumping ship for LTE and for the ability to unlock my phone for travel abroad.

    I currently have an LTE hotspot, which I'm going to combine with the phone on a shared data plan. At some point I may cancel the hotspot as I really don't need it anymore.

    The shared data plans are a decent value IF you currently pay for tethering or are a very heavy voice user. Otherwise I agree that they are not much of a value.

    However, it looks as if other members of my family may eventually join on the shared data plan, so ultimately my costs would be lower than they otherwise are now, plus I get unlimited minutes (not that I really need them).

    I'm planning to start a new plan with Verizon when I order the iPhones... Can I preorder 2 iPhones and start a new plan?

    Anyone interested in taking over my Verizon account, I have 2 iPhones on the line with grandfathered unlimited data, cheaper than the share everything. You can also add additional lines.

    I'm selling my account basically. Will be up at marketplace soon.

    I was planning on switching my 3 AT&T lines to Verizon with the launch of this phone... but the mobile share plans cost too much.

    Maybe I'm looking at it wrong. But is a 2GB plan for a smartphone $100 from Verizon? $40 monthly line access per device and $60 for the 2GB data plan...

    Yes, which is why I am wondering if anyone will be jumping to Verizon fresh from another carrier despite the outrageous prices

    I actually wanted to since I'll have to pay AT&T an extra $250 to upgrade early, plue $36 for an upgrade fee. My cancellation fee is only $225 so to get the new iPhone would actually be cheaper to go to Verizon. But their plan prices are insane.
