Verizon to Introduce “MORE Everything” Plans Tomorrow – Double Data at Same Prices, Discounts on Lines, and Doubled Bandwidth

verizon logo

According to multiple sources of ours, tomorrow morning, Verizon will unleash its response to the recent changes made by both T-Mobile and AT&T. Big Red is going to announce new “MORE Everything” plans that aim to give customers more data at no extra cost, doubled bandwidth, free 25GB of cloud storage, and unlimited international messaging. If you are a part of Verizon’s EDGE upgrade program, you will see extra discounts on your line access as well, which could vary depending on the amount of data you are signed up for.

Let’s talk about it all. 

Doubled data, same price

The document below details the new plans, but we’ll try to summarize. In terms of data packages, you’ll soon find the 500MB $40 now offers 1GB of data for the same price. The same thing goes for the 1GB $50 plan, which jumps to 2GB, and the 2GB $60 plan, which jumps to 3GB. The rest of the tiers appear to be staying the same.

EDGE line discounts

If you are a part of Verizon EDGE, they are now offering you line discounts depending on the amount of data you are paying for. So if you are on a plan with 8GB of data or less, you’ll receive a $10 discount on your line. If you are on a 10GB or higher plan with EDGE, you’ll see a $20 line discount. Current participants in EDGE will automatically receive this discount.

So what exactly is this discount? Verizon normally charges $40 per smartphone plus the price of your data package. With these new discounts, you’ll see that $40 drop to either $30 or $20 depending on your data package. In other words, this is Verizon finally removing the phone subsidy from their plans if you are paying for a phone on EDGE.

“MORE” all the things

Verizon is also claiming that it will offer doubled bandwidth in “cities coast to coast,” that they will hand everyone 25GB of Verizon cloud storage, and are opening enrollment in EDGE.

Also, Verizon has confirmed that “#MORE is coming” on Twitter.

Thoughts?

Cheers everyone who sent this in!

    Right now I have the unlimited data pkg from way back Alltel. I have another family member with a regular flip phone. I’ve been told if we go with the More pkg, my bill will be less ( the regular phone would be upgraded to a smart phone.) Would it be worth it? should I give up my unlimited data on one phone to get the 2GB on two phones and a tablet sharing….when right now we average using 1Gb ?

  • bacon

    Verizon has the worst data plan, I had them for 8 years now with the same plan. I have the unlimited data package for $29.99, so I use about 30 gigs a month, if I happened to sign up as a new customer it would be well over $200.00 just for data. I don’t see them keeping these rates for long not when sprint and T mobile are offering those good deals.

  • Alyzabeth Beechwood

    I’d gladly take unlimited data for half or even quarter the speed I have. Tethering is my ONLY viable option to connect

  • tim

    So how do you get the up to?

  • Joe Conklin

    This doesn’t even come close to unlimited data. Verizon, who is a monster already, needs to grow a pair and offer unlimited data.

  • David Pulido

    What happens if you are on a Nationwide Talk 450 Minutes Plan with doubled Data. As in the promo that made 2GB to 4GB? Any changes there?

  • Ripple

    At no extra cost, I welcome the change. Thank you Verizon…

  • Jeremey Norris

    Anyone got an idea if I would qualify… I had unlimited data but gave it up for the Verizon Maxx (8gb data with Hotspot) to go to the Verizon Edge program… do you think I will receive a $10 discount?

    • TylerCameron

      You’re an idiot..
      Only kmoronsofons sign up for VZ EDGE…

  • mcdonsco

    Every time I see something on Verizon plans I’m always hoping they will be offering something that will get me into the idea of giving up my unlimited data plan (cause $120/month is painful)…

    …then I read the details.

    Grrr…

  • Dude_Dudington

    Just left my unlimited data plan with Bigrape that was 120 after “fees” for my N5 on straight talk, unlimited everything for 40 a month, no fees, just 40 a month(I found a site that does straight talk for 40 as opposed to 45). Data is just as fast and service is great! I use around 2 gigs a month so the 2.5 data cap isn’t a problem.

  • hoosiercub88

    Close but no cigar Verizon.. sticking to my unlimited :)

  • Vermin_Cain

    After 12 years with Verizon, I switched to T-Mobile last week and so far I am loving my Nexus 5 and the coverage, and all that for $60 less per month.

    • Zac

      Thanks for the info; if you don’t mind, I’d be interested in knowing what city you are in. I don’t even know why I ask, because I am likely going to make the switch when my Big Red contract ends in April. I am in Fort Wayne (so mid-sized city) and have heard mostly positive things about TMobile cov in my area. As annoyed with Verizon as I am about prices, I have very few complaints about coverage in the 10+ yrs I’ve been with them. But the cost savings PLUS the fact that the phone I am wanting most is the 5 makes me feel like the switch is required.

      • Vermin_Cain

        I am in Cincinnati, they don’t have 4G LTE yet, but I am getting decent download speed and good coverage.

  • Ryan

    or you could, you know, go to T-Mobile and pay $20 for unlimited 4g LTE. Just a thought.

  • Zach Smith

    Switched to AT&T. Gave up unlimited for a massive 20GB plan, added two smartphones to the mix for a total of 5 (had 5 lines with 3 smartphones on VZW) and the bill dropped $40 overall. Plus the group uses little so I can hit 10GB comfortably with no issues. Also gained unlimited talk from the deal. Gotta love the 25% discount code!

  • Nunyur_Biznezz

    At least at&t did something for those that use more data. We are on a 6 GB plan so this new plan does nothing for us.

  • cmorty72

    And Verizon Wireless thinks this new offering is going to make me drop my Unlimited Data/Text??

    • Nunyur_Biznezz

      No they don’t. You’re unlimited data is going to be killed off in less than 5 months anyway.

      • cmorty72

        Verizon Wireless has been saying that for the past 1.5 years. I’m sure if it was that much of a spur in their asses they would of done it then.

        • Nunyur_Biznezz

          Over 99% of unlimited data customers contracts end by June 28th 2014. That why I said 5 months. Once they are out of contact Verizon only needs to provide 30 days notice of a change. Also if they change before a person is out of contract Verizon can’t collect a ETF.

      • Joe Butler

        Don’t be so sure of that, some people are still in contract with unlimited data until late 2015 because of the ‘glitches’ last fall.

        • Nunyur_Biznezz

          Very very small % which I’m sure Verizon will grandfather. As it is the number of unlimited data customers is sub 20%

    • Nunyur_Biznezz

      Also if you’re on the Old nationwide plan with 450 minutes unlimited texting and 2 GB data you’re paying $90 plus tax/fees. On these More Plans you get unlimited minutes unlimited texting and 2 GB for $90 plus taxes/fees. And the taxes/fess are less on the new plans so you’d be kind of stupid to stay on the old nationwide plans in that case.

  • btesser

    Just in case anyone is interested, I’ve found a way to upgrade a grandfathered unlimited phone without losing unlimited.
    Limitations:
    * You must have a family plan
    * One line on the family plan must have a limited data plan
    It’s rather simple actually. Here’s how to do it:
    1. When the unlimited line comes due for an upgrade, transfer the upgrade to a line with limited data.
    2. Complete the upgrade on the limited line.
    3. Swap sims / tell verizon you want to activate a different phone on the lines / switch the activation yourself on the VZW website

    Hope I helped somebody out by sharing. I’ve personally done this 2-3 times successfully!
    If you call verizon and ask if it will work they will say no. If you go to the store and ask if it will work they will say no. But when going through the web process you will see that the only contract being modified is the one for the line being upgraded. I personally took a screenshot of this page just in case verizon tried to screw me.

    Enjoy :)

    • Nunyur_Biznezz

      Sorry won’t work. You need to transfer the upgrade of the line WITHOUT unlimited data to the line with unlimited data. When you transfer upgrade the original line is the one who gets the contract extension. Since unlimited data lines can not renew their contracts your unlimited data line would lose it’s unlimited data.

      • David Nguyen

        Wrong. btesser is correct. << I work in cell phones.

      • btesser

        Do you know this doesn’t work from experience? I know from personal experience that it does work as I’ve done it multiple times. Maybe in theory it shouldn’t, but it does. Next time get your facts straight before chiming in.

      • btesser

        And if you’re interested in my theory as to why it works here goes…
        If you transfer an upgrade of a line that has data (A) to a line that has limited data(B), and line B gets a dumbphone, then line B must change its plan to remove data. Line A doesn’t need to change its plan because the services aren’t changing. Apply the same logic to grandfathered unlimited plans and I believe that is why it works.

      • btesser

        Do you say that from experience or skepticism? I know it works because I’ve done it several times. Maybe it “shouldn’t work” but it does in fact work. If you look at the terms you agree to when performing the upgrade it says nothing about the original line that had the upgrade, just the line that’s getting the new phone. Think about it– if you transfer an upgrade from a line with data, to a line without data, and the line getting the upgrade is getting a smartphone, the only plan you need to change is the plan of the line without data as that one will need to sign up for a data plan. The line with data can stay just as it is. If you are just sore because you already gave up your data, then I totally feel you. I’d be heated too! But, I held off upgrading until I figured this out and I’m glad I did. If you call vzw and ask, they will tell you this won’t work. If you go to the store and ask if this will work they will say no. But it works.

  • Jon

    I’d like to see some better mobile broadband data only plans.

  • Steve B

    If this is the best they can do why bother? Basically they just added a GB to a couple options, big deal! AT&T and T-mobile have far better deals!!

  • Radgatt

    I think that I am seeing that ‘doubled’ bandwidth already. My speeds have improved. Perhaps the ‘doubled’ bandwidth isn’t just limited to people on the data plans. I am unlimited on my Moto X.

  • Godzilla

    So if i call verizon tomorrow will they adjust me to 3GB instead of 2? Or tell me to go to hell?

  • trixnkix637

    I could sneeze through a gb worth of data.. *clamps hands around Unlimited Data and runs off*

  • enigmaco

    Well dang doesn’t do my plan any good we have a 700 minute family plan with 2 smartphones on it 4gb between the two lines, we can’t get share everything for it will increase our bill.

  • kash521

    So those of us with the higher tiers of data (8GB on my family plan of 3) get shafted? Thats cool.

    • flosserelli

      Pretty much.

  • JoeTi

    Typical Big Red style. Launch new plans and encourage enrollment and increase data allotments after complaints from overages mount. Sounds like the original tiered data plans for laptops and aircards. Remember the 50mb plan for $39.99/month for a laptop? Ha! That lasted long!

  • seeingwhite

    Well, if this is their response, then $115 (corp discount) for two lines w/10GB on AT&T here is come!

  • Onelove22

    I sell this for Verizon and it’s awesome! I’m so excited to push this. I have so many customers who will love the double data for the same price.

    • PoisonApple31

      Why do you get nice commission for getting another sucker on the Edge plan?

      • Onelove22

        Not at all. I’m on devices only. Nothing on plans

        • Dan DeMarco

          VZW reps don’t get paid off of devices… I am a rep, I know this.

    • flosserelli

      How do you sleep at night.

  • BodomSlayer

    What about if you paid full price for you phone like with the Moto X and didn’t use the EDGE program?

    • PoisonApple31

      Then your line access fee would be exactly the same. And you’d get bonus data if you are currently on 500mb, 1GB, or 2GB Share Everything plan. If you have 4GB, you get nothing.

  • Tim242

    I have two lines with unlimited. I have been hanging on to unlimited and not having WiFi at home. The drop in price for EDGE may just be enough to change and get WiFi. Hmmm decisions decisions.

    • Silver Veloz

      Do you use your phone(s) as hotspots also? Is that part of unlimited, or do they tag you for data use separately? I’m trying to decide if I should keep WiFi at home.

      • Tim242

        Yes, we use them as hotspots. I use it to stream hulu and Netflix to the Chromecast. You either have to be rooted to use the built in hotspot, or use foxfi. If you use foxfi, you will have to buy the 7.99 paid version.

        • Silver Veloz

          Thanks. I was thinking of Foxfi. Something to ponder. Oh, and I won’t down vote you, just because you posted something. I’ve seen a lot of that happening. It’s happened to me many times. Even when I just gave some information on something. I just laugh.

          • Tim242

            Foxfi does require that you use a lock on your phone. But, that’s a good idea anyway. I was using the built in hotspot, since I am rooted and on a custom ROM. But I started using foxfi because it offers more features.

  • Anon

    Good. I can drop the wife’s current 1GB (to become 2GB) plan to the 512MB (the new 1GB) plan and save another ten bucks a month.

    (My new job just took over paying for my cell, so no family plan any more)

  • CyHawk60

    Still over priced.

  • Averix

    Its only double bandwidth for people that never used data anyway! The real data users don’t get any new caps. I’m hating these headlines. 500 MB to 1 GB so what? Does my 8 GB go to 10 or 16 for the same cost? No.

    • seeingwhite

      Yes, yes, yes. This exactly.

  • Greg N Katie Carter

    So I just got off the phone with big red and seeing as I am on the “loyalty customer” plan (2gb non-shared data for $60) even though I am participating in the Edge program I won’t see any of these discounts…..

  • hyperbeatser

    still have an unlimited data line…not sure what to do when this contract is up come summer time…

    • Fresh360

      Buy a Moto X2 off contract in the fall or switch to T-Mobile $70 Unlimited plan (IF coverage is good in your area)

  • Simplej

    Definitely still leaving Verizon when my contract is up. I have a 4gb family plan, so no change at all.

  • Jimmy Debacher

    So I’m in a family plan. I have my own 2GB of data to myself. Will I get bumped to 3GB as well as my Family?

    • PoisonApple31

      No this is for people/families who have/share 500mb, 1GB, or 2GB buckets of data. If your family bucket is 4GB+, you get nothing.

      • Jimmy Debacher

        So what you are saying is that if me and the family is sharing 2GBs of data, then it will bump up to 3GB for the family to share correct?

  • AndrewScottRox

    I bet they find a way to double screw you too.

  • coolsilver

    More pain in the rump

  • Jeremy Gross

    So if my family plan has 6 GB do we get 12 GB?

    • Franklin Ramsey

      Nope

  • chjapa

    Ahhh, how sweet of them. With the thought of losing future profits they decided to cut us a break. How nice.

  • JMonkeYJ

    Verizon math: 2*2GB = 3GB!

    • Tim242

      It’s your reading comprehension in question, not their math. Kellen’s headline is not = to the document provided. It says up to double the data on select plans.

  • Jimmy

    Sweet. So if I’m reading this correctly, I’ll save $10 on my 2GB plan that my wife and I share by “downgrading”. Works for me.

  • patrick

    Same “low” price. Got to love that VZW humor

  • Alexander Garcia

    Thank you T-Mobile! Thank you! These big time carriers are obviously and definitely feeling the heat that you’re brining! B-)

    • Franklin Ramsey

      I think Verizon’s move was more in relation to AT&T, but I do think T-mobile got AT&T to move.

  • Rick Ramey

    More of the same.

  • George Davis

    So how do we access this 25Gb of cloud storage?

  • vwbeetlvr

    Double the Bandwidth! So you can go through your 500MB allotment in 90 seconds instead of 180 seconds!
