So it’s 2017 and unlimited data is officially back at all of the major US carriers. (Don’t even try to tell me that you saw this coming.) It seemed like just days ago we were paying a hundred dollars for 2GB and 4GB of data and having our grandfathered unlimited data plans ripped from our cold, crusty, fingers with the shadiest of moves. But hey, we’re not about to complain that we can all get back on unlimited data for some decent prices. (more…)
In reaction to T-Mobile’s reaction to Verizon’s reaction to the unlimited craze that has once again swept the wireless industry in the US, Sprint has another new unlimited plan to share with you today. This one is dubbed “Best Unlimited HD Plan Ever” and includes the same style of unlimited plan that Verizon introduced on Monday, which T-Mobile already had to match. It includes HD streaming and tethering without the extra up-charge. (more…)
This afternoon, because this is how John Legere works, the T-Mobile CEO has reacted to the new Verizon Unlimited plan by tweaking his company’s own unlimited offering known as T-Mobile ONE. What are the tweaks? Well, let’s just say that since Verizon’s unlimited plan offered a plan that bested his, he’s gone ahead and matched Big Red (in a way). He’s also throwing in a 2-line promo as well. (more…)
Verizon is bringing back unlimited data, in case you missed that bit of explosive news on a weekend. From everything we have learned from several sources, plus some direct feedback from Verizon, we think we’ve got the details pretty dialed in on what this new Verizon Unlimited plan is all about. In this post, we’ll try to walk through everything you need to decide whether or not this is the new plan for you. (more…)
Because weekends are always an opportunity to introduce something huge (🙄), Verizon today took the time to announce that unlimited data is coming back to their network. Nope, this isn’t a joke – Verizon unlimited is back in modern form, which means “unlimited” with some asterisks. The plan goes live tomorrow, so lets talk about it.
As of this morning, AT&T appears to have the watch available and in-stock, maybe even for in-store pick-up. To buy from AT&T, I’m currently seeing options of $249.99 on a 2-year contract or $349.99 with no contract. They were also supposed to offer a $17.50 per month/20-month installment plan option, which could be there for current customers, I’m just not seeing it on my end. (more…)
Verizon’s open enrollment period for their mobile protection plans kicks off today and ends April 9. For those not familiar, this is the chance each year to enroll your phone in a protection plan should you have passed on the option at the time of purchase, but now want some coverage.
Currently, Verizon offers five different types of coverage, including Extended Warranty, Wireless Phone Protection, Total Equipment Coverage, and the big guy, Total Mobile Protection. They also offer a “Tech Coach” plan, should you need a friend in the business to talk to about phones on the regular. (more…)
Here’s something I didn’t expect to say coming into today: Verizon may have introduced the best Android Wear 2.0 watch today. It’s OK if you think I’m crazy while also not knowing what I’m talking about. You see, Verizon, mixed in with its announcement for the LG Watch Sport, announced its own Android Wear 2.0 watch to be released in March. The device sounds really, really promising, especially if you wish LG and Google had found a better middle ground between the Sport and Style. (more…)
