On Friday, Verizon joined AT&T in announcing that a couple of their data plans would now include more data at the same price. Their $80 and $100 MORE Everything plans are jumping up to 10GB and 15GB of data per month, respectively. Previously, the $80 plan came with just 6GB of data, while the $100 plan had 10GB. (more…)
On October 16, Verizon has a few changes to introduce to its Edge monthly device payment plan and a couple for its MORE Everything plans. According to multiple sources, we are looking at a bump from 20 to 24 monthly payments on Edge, a higher percentage of the device needing pay-off before an upgrade can occur, and bigger per line discounts if on Edge. Verizon is also adjusting its single line plans, moving them back to their original $60 and $75 price points.
Below are the details. (more…)
With almost every other major US carrier announcing some sort of double data promotion within the last month (Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile), we were starting to wonder if Verizon was going to completely ignore the trend and instead stick to their current set of MORE Everything plans that are really looking overpriced at the moment. It appears as if they are joining the party after all. In a blog post this morning, Verizon has announced that many of their MORE Everything plans are seeing double the data with no price hikes for a limited time. (more…)
Continuing to hold on to your unlimited data plan at Verizon is becoming increasingly more difficult, assuming you want to upgrade to a new phone at some point. The options to upgrade are disappearing quicker than we can count, but there are still a handful of ways for you to pick up a new phone and keep living life without data caps. Unfortunately, the options that include discounted phones or reasonable monthly payments are either incredibly limited now or gone altogether. If you want to upgrade and keep unlimited data, your best bet is to pay full retail in most cases.
Since we haven’t talked about the methods for keeping unlimited data on Verizon in a while, we wanted to do that today. Many of you are considering your next phone as we head into a busy holiday season, so knowing your options can’t hurt the situation.
By our count, there are six methods for keeping unlimited data. Here they are. (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.
