I only have 250MB and it's ridiculous for 2016.
To have to worry about going over the limit.
I think they should offer 1GB LTE PLUS unlimited 2G data as the cheapest plan.
PLEASE VERIZON...Make it happen. You will make millions happy.
It's not fair how websites are growing in size and the data they offer is terrible.

That will never happen. Verizon is way to high up in their own rear end to offer such perk. They'd say "if you want that, go to T-Mobile."
They are the worst then when it comes to customer loyalty. Hopefully Apple isn't becoming like them. It seems that Apple is doing the same with their greed.

Or at least make overage charges cheaper. But I doubt they'll even do that. Verizon thinks they're still king with coverage. But they have to remember AT&T is queen.

Never..... They don't have to . It's ridiculous you don't want to pay for more data ? That or you won't switch

I don't see Verizon doing anything like that for a long time, if ever. Verizon is basically like Apple. If you want what company B is offering...then VZW will simply tell you to go company B.

I love VZW. The coverage is awesome and the LTE speeds are amazing but VZW is arrogant as hell. The only company that surpasses them in the arrogance department is Apple

Isn't that the way all businesses operate? I find the notion of arrogance in a company amusing; a word with negative connotation describing a company with superior products, services and revenues. Considering you have the services of both companies seems like a basic disconnect.

I agree that 250MB is paltry for today's Internet. It's probably going to be necessary for you to either look at higher data options with Verizon or switch to another carrier.

I do not understand your point. If 250MB is so ridiculous for you, just get a bigger plan and move on with your life.

Only after Att gives us better international roaming rates. And this is never happens. I think faster T-mo gets better network or Sprint applies for bankruptcy :)

They charge what they charge for a reason. They obviously offer some unique service or product that people still use them when there are 'cheaper' alternatives in the market.

Verizon is arrogant in a sense that they feel that they are top dog and can do whatever they want. They're not hurting for customers, hence why I said they'd just tell the "I want what company b is offering" customer to go to company b. A company like T-Mobile can't do things like that. Now T-Mobile does seem to be like a hell of a lot more than Verizon is tho.

Apple is similar to Verizon. They walk around like their **** don't stink. I never said having that arrogance was bad or even good. But it is reality. You have a company like Samsung that listened to their consumers and brought back the SD card slot and water resistant of their S line, instead of taking the Apple approach and telling the consumer what they want. I mean Apple is the same company that once said "you're holding it wrong" during the antennagate fiasco. If that's not arrogance, I don't know what is. It actually makes me laugh how companies like Apple and Verizon pull stuff like that

Apple hit it out of the park with the 6s, if that is not listening to customers I don't know what is. Removing the Sd card in the s6 by your standards shows Samsung was as "arrogant" as Apple was.

I'm trying to understand your point of view, but I can't quite get what youre attempting to say; seems more like sour grapes for some reason.

They are timing the announcement to coincide with Apple's event where it will be revealed that iOS is being retired and all new iPhones will run Windows 10 Mobile.

Why are you assuming OP doesn't have a job, or that OP is old enough for a job? :/
1) I can recognize the self-entitled whine of a millennial anywhere. They expect others to hand them things instead of taking responsibility for themselves.

2) I got my first job at 14, haven't been unemployed since, and at times took a second job, so i don't really care how old he is or if he already has a job. I'm sure he could figure a way to make (or an extra) $45 a month to get that which he so desperately wants.

Because it's always that easy ...
Yes....it is that easy, unless you have the expectation that you shouldn't have to work for the things you want.

Exactly!! Samsung has given customers what they wanted for the most part with the S7, they actually listened. THICKER phone for better battery, bring back SD card slot, bring back water resistance...

People have all been requesting the same of Apple for years but what do we get? The opposite. A thinner phone with a small battery. Pressure sensing gimmick. Marginally better camera that still has the garbage softening algorithm that makes for HORRIBLE bokeh depth of field effects, it's not a pleasant, smooth blur it's a blotchy water color painting. Still starts at 16GB.

Now, rumors for the iPhone 7 point toward EVEN THINNER DESIGN AND SMALLER BATTERY, TAKING AWAY THE HEADPHONE JACK, smart connector gimmick?? Same exact design pretty much, not much better screen, smaller iPhone has same amount of RAM and marginally better camera (have to get plus for that) and probably will still start at 16GB. Come. On. Apple, we don't want this. Until you start listening to your customers, your iPhones will be declining in sales just like they did with the 6S (even though they still sell well, just not as much as its predecessor)

Look at my quote just above this one, this is what we mean.
They obviously can't afford it and would rather place the blame on Verizon. Transparency.
Yeah most likely. But what we are wondering, it seems like only much older plans would have such a small cap at 250MB, probably at a similar price to today's plans. Wouldn't today's $45 3GB plan probably cost similarly to their (what I'm assuming) very old 250MB plan, plus they'd get more features such as tethering and such..

I still don't get it. Apple sold multiple tens of millions of 6s's; who isn't getting what they want? A minority of Internet posters?
