Well this is quite weird. Verizon just called me up, doubled my data plan from 3GB to 6GB for free for "being a loyal customer" over the past two years, and then saw that my wife was on an iPhone 5 which is now off-contract so they lowered our bill by $15/mo. The lady made it clear that this would not affect our contract or upgrade eligibility in any way, except that if my wife uses her upgrade our bill will go back up by $15/mo. I assume we could always purchase off-contract, but my wife refuses to upgrade to any of the bigger iPhone models. I'm still sitting here in shock. I've never had a company call me up, give me free stuff, then lower my bill. I asked her why and she said that it's a competitive market and they're trying to do their best to retain their customers. I wonder if this is due to pressure from T-Mobile? Glad to see some actual competition! So has anyone else received this call? I switched to Verizon from AT&T in September 2012 when I got my iPhone 5. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Great customer service, amazingly fast LTE, and insanely good coverage. And no, it wasn't a scam call. They didn't ask me for any information and they knew everything about me already. It was glorious.
