Back on August 10, we reported that Verizon was about to close a loophole that many of us had used over the last couple of years to upgrade to new phones at discounted prices while still keeping unlimited data. As of yesterday, that loophole is officially closed. (more…)
Yesterday, Verizon quietly introduced a brand new single line plan that certainly isn’t the worst deal you will find in the wireless industry. At $60, the new plan offers unlimited talk and text along with 2GB of data per month. You can lower that rate further by buying a new phone through Verizon’s Edge device payment plan and shave off another $10, bringing your monthly service bill to $50 (plus the Edge payment). (more…)
Unlimited data users on Verizon, at this stage in the game, know most of the tricks when it comes to upgrading phones at a reasonable price. In other words, since Verizon took away unlimited data plans years ago, users of those plans have had to find loopholes in the system to allow them to keep their plans without having to fork out full retail prices for phones. Unfortunately, one of the most commonly used loopholes is about to be closed up. Come August 24, Big Red will force upgrades used on smartphones to keep data packages for the remainder of a contract, according to sources of ours.
Let me explain what this means. (more…)
T-Mobile’s John Legere is just as sick of seeing AT&T ads for their “Best ever prices” family plan as you are. To try and directly compete with that plan, T-Mobile will launch their own best ever-like pricing, with a new family plan that runs just $100 per month for four lines, yet includes the same 10GB of data as the competitors, along with unlimited talk and text.
For comparison, T-Mobile put together a chart to show you how this new plan beats out not only AT&T, but also similar plans from Verizon and Sprint. Since the chart was created by T-Mo, you have to take it for what it is. However, it does show the major points here, like price, which is $60 lower and the 2.5GB of data per line, with no overages. T-Mobile is still giving away unlimited data and text in over 120 countries with this plan, plus they are letting you stream music from many of the top music services without it counting against your data.

Small business owners, starting today, you now have three new MORE Everything plan options from Verizon to choose from. The plans include 60GB, 80GB, and 100GB shareable data packages, along with connectivity of up to 50 devices, “the most offered on any small business mobile plan at this time.”
These plans also include unlimited domestic and international messaging while in the US, plus unlimited voice. If you need to call Canada or Mexico, shared voice minutes can be added on for an additional charge. (more…)

Verizon’s crusade to get you to give up your existing data plan for its More Everything shared plans continues with a new deal, promoted today through its official Twitter account. If you have a tablet that can be activated on a wireless network, plus are currently on a More Everything plan, Verizon has the perfect combination waiting for you. (more…)
At only a month or so old, Verizon is already adjusting its MORE Everything data plans to better align with their biggest competitor, AT&T. You may recall AT&T’s headline grabbing move at the beginning of February, where it announced its “Best Ever Prices” for a family of four, with a 10GB $160 plan leading the charge. Verizon reached out today to note that they had recently made a move to match this offer. (more…)
