    Yes it is. Now debating if I should give up unlimited for this plan. The highest I've ever used was 30gb while on vacation.

    Curious if you spent most of your time on the phone during your vacation :)?

    Nope. Toddler watched a lot of Netflix during the drive. The perfect babysitter.

    Better deal for a lot than ATT…. starting with 12 GB plan, not 15 like ATT.

    Also I saw that VZW was giving a 1GB bonus per line for 24 months on their Edge plan…….

    That expired yesterday, unless they've extended it. I'm now going to switch bec of this. All in all, 30GB plan is just be $20 more than my TMo service per month. Worth the switch since all my 3 lines highest usage was 12GB in total. The signal reliability for that amount is worth the switch.

    Nice, does anyone know if once we sign up for this promo is it only for like a year or permanent?

    What if a better promo comes in the future, is verizon usually pretty willing to give you that?

    Debating dropping my UDP as well...

    doesn't start until the 12GB level (and that's not even double), that's a shame since AT&T doubled 10GB i believe

    I agree. The move from unlimited is only worth it if you can keep it forever.

    Question, does Verizon still offer BYOD/no contract discounts (new signup)? Also, aside from EDGE and an introductory 0% APR credit card, what options do I have for 0% interest financing on 4x iPhones (6-12 months)? We currently have 4 iPhones on AT&T 10GB postpaid and 3 iPads on individual Verizon month-to-month plans and I'd like to consolidate them all on a 30-40GB plan promo. However, we don't need to upgrade phones frequently so I'd like to make sure I can "grandfather-in" to BYOD discounts.

    This part is of particular concern to me:

    Yep, but it would have been nice for us AT&Ters if they followed instead of lead this time.

    What that means is, VZW essentially caved after the letter that the Feds sent them essentially demanding to know why they were going to throttle the heaviest network users who consume around 5GB or less of data, but not those who have the mobile share plans and use 10, 20, 30GB of data.

    It's BS no matter how you cut it, and I told the lady that I talked to today when I called in to ask about the double data deal. I said it's kinda F'd up that you guys are ok charging someone 150.00 for 20 GB (40 after the double data promo), but customers who pay 30.00 for unlimited (and DON'T abuse it -- I use 11-25 GB a month), get optimized. She tried to give me some smoke and mirrors excuse -- anyhow I'm glad they announced this before I took the plunge and changed to the double data deal. I don't care about, want, or even need unlimited minutes, as I come nowhere near using the 2000 I already have with Friends & Family and Mobile to Mobile so I'm glad they backed down. (Not that they likely had a choice).

    So I talked to verizon.

    You basically keep the plan until you upgrade next.

    For new customers this means 2 years. For existing, it depends when your upgrade is.Can be as low as 2 months. So when you are choosing a new data plan, it will default you to the closest available to the existing plan.

    Seems like a gamble to enroll if you are unlimited.

    I'll pass. I'll just stick to my unlimited data plan and purchasing at full retail.

    How about if you buy phones full price, though? Would you be able to keep it forever then?

    If the person you spoke with is correct, then the AT&T offer is better. You keep it until you change to a different plan/data amount.

    Also, am I reading correctly that BYOD doesn't get the $25/line/month discount? Only Edge? My plan with AT&T right now gives the $25/line/month discount as long as it's not a subsidized contract.

    Don't think I'll switch since coverage is about equal for me.
