Anyone on a business account with Verizon? I was told there is unlimited data on these accounts for smart phones.

Yea, all major US carriers (at least for my firm) provide unlimited everything plans and that includes tethering.

It's not really a "plan" you've ever heard of - everyone falls under the company umbrella, thus they just negotiate this one super-family/shared unlimited plan.

And no, it's not available to just anyone or any company. You have to meet a certain threshold.

Thanks. My company has the plan but with only one smartphone on it. I was thinking of ditching my current plan when it's up and being added to the company plan. It works out to be around $47/month total per each smartphone.

As I said above, not every company may qualify. And if every company does, I would imagine the cost of such an unlimited corporate plan is far more than the equivalent of a regular plan. We have several thousand employees, whereas it sounds like your company has only one smartphone user? That's a big difference.

I would certainly inquire before jumping ship!

Yep. We negotiated unlimited national and international data plans onto our account but not voice. So what you have available varies, company to company.

I think it's a contract negotiated on a company basis, like you said. Makes sense!

OP, your company may provide you with an employer discount (mines 23%), if you don't want to hop onto the company plan.

I thought of that too.

Our company has many basic phones for field employees and one smartphone as we are still merging over from Sprint. We have a limited amount of pooled minutes, unlimited texts and what appears to be unlimited data for smartphones. Just seeing how it works from others that are on similar plans. Thanks for the feedback.
