good i hope that happens. I get to keep my unlimited plan plus i get to lower my parents's data plans since they barely use it.
Why dont we just let verizon do what they want to do. When the time comes it will happen there is nothing me or you can change that
Woo, awesome! Can't wait for the 4G iPhone.
And if it has the battery life of the current Verizon 4G phone.........well I'll stick with the iPhone 4 and unlimited data.
Don't hold your breath.
My contract is up when the suppose iPhone 4G is suppose to come out (July next year). I'll probably keep my iPhone 4 for a little just to see how Apple is going to manage the battery on it. As of right now, 4G is such a battery drainer and is my main concern for the 4G iPhone. The HTC Thunderbolt is blazing fast, but the battery also drains in like 4 hours
Who said anything about changing anything? The post is meant to be informational, so those who have been thinking they might wait until the last minute to get their unlimited plan alongside an fifth generation iPhone, will now realize they won't be able to wait and switch.
I don't believe this article. It was posted on Friday and none of the major tech sites have run with it, so I don't believe it's true.
Eventually, it is going to change but this July 7 date is probably BS.
So, will those with unlimited data on ip4 be grandfathered in and receive unlimited 4g when the iPhone goes 4g?
I don't believe the article either, but I've still been wondering this. We know the tiered data is on the way, but in what fashion and what way?
NO! I have an upgrade and want an iphone on July 11th! It's not fair...
That's the real question. It's one thing to allow you to keep unlimited data on you're current device, but will they let you keep when it's time to upgrade?
Well I think it boils down to one technicality:
Verizon (and AT&T for that matter) offers both a 3G unlimited plan and an LTE unlimited plan. If they want to, and I feel like they might, they could pull a quick one and say, "Whoa now kiddies. You're technically changing your plan entirely. Switching to LTE plans is very complicated. We'll have to go tiered for you."
Complicated as in dropdown menus.
According to AT&T you already have one.
Verizon Tiered Data Plans Begin July 7
Set to go live July 7th.
If you would like to add tethering on to any of those packages, you can purchase 2GB of data at an additional cost of $20 per month.
Data plans w/ tethering:
Ouch that sucks. I hope this applies only to new data plan subscriptions, and those of us with the $30/unlimited will be grandfathered in...
Verizon is CRAZY if they are going to charge those prices.
I was expecting
15oMB for $15
1GB for $20
3GB for $30-35
So each plan basically up's AT&T's plan by $5?
Well I'm sticking to AT&T. Mobile to mobile, faster speeds, advantages of a gsm network and rollover minutes seals the deal for me
Ouch, Verizon = expensive. Not the place to go to if you are on a budget at all.
On the good side, if you really do use a lot of data, Verizon is willing to let you get a plan that gives you more GB than AT&T's plans do (you just gotta pay for it). Though if you are on a budget and trying to swing a smartphone on a budget, AT&T at least has a cheap option for a small amount of data.
Personally, if I were picking plans, I'd go with AT&T, I don't use that much data (the 2 GB would do me fine and it's cheaper than Verizon's) and I don't have that much money.
As is, until AT&T finds a way to make me change plans, I love my unlimited data plan with them *grin*.
Of course, this looks like speculation and honestly, that doesn't look very competitive to tell the truth. Cause the only people who get advantage of that are those who use a lot of data (which if AT&T speaks the truth most people use under 2 GB) so they'd only convince those people and the people who might be "stuck" with them cause AT&T does not get good service in their area. I honestly wonder if that rumor is true cause to me it would seem to give AT&T a pretty good edge over them pricing wise (then again, the reason I didn't pick them 10 years ago was cause they were really overpriced then so I always saw them as pricey but my understanding is the two have become more equal in price).
nice, way cheaper than greedy at&t
If that's also a family data plan, it will save me a bunch of money per month.
Ahaha ha.a haahaa.
No, those are for individual lines, unfortunately.
If by cheaper, you mean 5 dollars a month more then AT&T's 2GB plan, then yes, you are correct
And 5 dollars more if you want tethering for the same amount of GB's on the lowest plan (basically both on the lowest plan will give you 4 GB of data but Verizon will cost you 5 more for that)....
Verizon's plans are only advantageous if you use a lot of data (they do get cheaper once you start using 5 GB of data if you consider AT&T charges you 10 dollars per extra gig you go over your plan).
It's certainly cheaper, but just the thought of being able to use 5GB ... or even 10GB for $30 right now makes everything seems so expensive.
