    Well they won't be getting my business when I get the new iPhone. They went from an unlimited plan for $29.99 to the minimum smartphone data plan that is 2GB for $30.00. :rolleyes:

    What really pisses me off is it says the 2GB plan is not eligible for discounts.

    There's been like 3 weeks of warning for this. AT&T do a tiered data plan too, except there's is $5 cheaper. Every company does this. It's corporate greed.

    You can't have everything. T-mobile is getting swallowed by AT&T and unlimited data will be gone. Sprint will follow this trend in few years.

    Get used to it.

    I get a 20% corporate discount on my AT&T plan as well, which sounds like it's not possible on Verizon.

    No, it's the pricing of a service. Unlimited data plans were invented in the simpler days of yore. It's not greed when someone chooses to sign up for that rate.

    I get the 15% federal government rate; what association gives you 20%?

    3 weeks of solid confirmation, not rumors. Rumors don't mean **** until confirmed.

    This is just plain wrong. I feel for you, neighbor.

    Is this a common theme throughout all the Provinces?

    Teachers get 19% not 20. But I believe all discounts are now gone, have you checked your account lately?

    Recently a local carrier in Quebec offered a 6Gb plan for $30 so the Big3 did as well, but only in Quebec. I'm pretty sure the other provinces are stuck with crappy plans (I'm in Ontario with this one).

    Hopefully the 6Gb for $30 option is available again nationwide when the next iphone comes out so I can upgrade to that.

    There's no way they're going to eliminate employee discounts. They're contracts between Verizon and your respective employers. My mother gets 22% with the hospital she works at.
