AT&T added a new data option to its Mobile Share Value line-up this morning with the introduction of a 7GB “truly shareable” bucket that runs $75 per month and has Rollover Data. Beginning Sunday, February 15, AT&T customers can (for a limited time) find a home with this new 7GB tier, which also includes unlimited talk and text. Keep in mind that $75 is the price for the data itself – your cost will be higher depending on how many lines you add, as each line carries its own price. (more…)
According to a reliable source, Verizon is going to make changes to the majority of its More Everything plans this Thursday, February 5. The changes will include $10 discounts to most data options, a handful of new data tiers to choose from, and the $25 Edge discount starting even lower going forward at just 6GB of data. The full details can be found below. (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…)
AT&T, essentially admitting that the insanely high prices that carriers have been charging you for tiered data over the last couples of years was highway robbery, is now offering double the data on its plans that range from 15GB to 50GB for the same price…for life. That’s right, if you pay for a 15GB plan, you can now get 30GB of data for the exact same price for as long as you want – there is no expiration. Same thing goes for 20GB, 30GB, 40GB, and 50GB plans; all have been doubled without a price adjustment. For $130 per month (plus the line access charges), you can have 30GB of data to gobble up per month on up to 10 lines. Or, you could up to 40GB ($150), 60GB ($225), 80GB ($300), and 100GB ($375) at the prices you have been paying. (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…)
On Friday, Sprint’s new CEO, Marcelo Claure, said during a company-wide town hall that we should expect major pricing changes for his company’s wireless plans come today. He has delivered by announcing that Sprint will now offer a family share data plan with up to 10 lines and 20GB of data for $100 (line access charges gone through 2015). For that amount of data, you are looking at prices that certainly cut under AT&T and Verizon.
The details in this one are all over the board and include a special 2GB per line bonus for a limited time, so hang with me while I update this post and break it all down. (more…)
