Verizon CEO confirms family data plans coming in 2012

While many family plans are available to share minutes and text messages the option to share data across the entire group is still not available. I'd have thought we'd see this already but apparently not. This week at at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference, Lowell McAdam, CEO at Verizon had a few updates regarding the matter. He notes that it only makes sense for family plans to be able to share data and have a single bill and that after 2 years of work toward account-level pricing, Verizon may finally be ready.

US Mobile carriers agree to end “bill shock” will send out usage notifications

Have you ever received that AT&T bill in the mail only to see a huge balance thanks to an extremely large overage of text messages, or your daughters new Android phone went way over her 2GB data limit? I'm sure we've all been here before, especially back in the early days when we had 300 text message plans.

Verizon Wireless blocking apps and their updates in the Market

We all know that carriers allow or block certain applications to and from the market -- some for the better, and others for the worst like we have here. Obviously carrier specific apps like Verizon's NFL Mobile are only accessed by Verizon devices and are blocked to the rest. It now seems Verizon is taking this a step further and are blocking apps in the market, even ones you've already purchased.

Verizon Wireless Intros $20 Plan with 300MB Data for select regions

While a good deal is a good deal and not to be passed up this seems more like a gap between a real data plan and those feature phone plans. Today Verizon Wireless is launching a new back to school data plan for only $20 with 300mb of data connectivity when bundled with a new voice plan. The odd part is this is not widespread and only available starting in select Verizon regions, this may be a test run to start things off.

AT&T Verifies Data Throttling in Future, October 1st it Begins

It has begun! AT&T has officially reported that starting on October 1st, 2011, the top 5% of AT&T will start to see reduced speeds. Top users, in this case, meaning those who use inordinate amounts of data on a daily basis, downloading Star Wars all day long and listening to the Imperial March on Spotify. What AT&T plans to do about you wild and crazy data machines is to force choke you - and by force choke I of course mean throttle your data speeds, making you have slower uploads and slower downloads once you get to a certain point during the month when AT&T thinks you've simply had enough. AT&T made it clear today that it's not you average Americans that they're slipping their fingers around, it's the evil rebels using "12 times more data than the average of all other smartphone data customers."

Verizon Directs Employees How to Handle End of Unlimited Data Plans

We've got our hands on a retailer email sent out to at least SOME locations across the US, we're assuming basically all, this email detailing the way Verizon employees are to handle customers asking about the unlimited plans ending and tiered data plans beginning. What you'll see is an epic story filled with drama, intrigue, and lots of big capital letters for EMPHASIS. Verizon isn't going to have any red on its hands when all this is said and done, $30 a month slayed and massacred for ever and ever amen.
