knew they were coming but today the folks from Verizon Wireless have made it official. Announcing their new Share Everything plans with family and device-wide shared data options. First they took away unlimited data, and now they'll be bumping up the price for most -- although I'm sure some users will benefit from the changes. Read on below for full details on how your family can share a single line and data plan.
Verizon would be phasing out its customers who were "grandfathered" into unlimited data plans by forcing them to adopt the new shared data plans this summer. I've been an unlimited customer for years, and when I lived out in the country the tethering plan saved me around a thousand dollars a year in overage fees I'd otherwise have been paying. "Blow this for a game of soldiers," said I, "they can have my unlimited data when they take it from my cold, dead hands!"
Verizon's "grandfathered" unlimited data customers, who are concerned that their all-you-can-eat smorgasbord of 3G and 4G LTE will end when the company introduces new shared data plans this summer. Verizon has updated their statement, assuring unlimited customers that they don't have to sign a new contract if they don't want to. Of course, that also means that they'll be ineligible for the discounted pricing on new phones, without which most mid-range and high-end Android devices become prohibitively expensive.
Verizon customers world was shattered when their CFO mentioned that all grandfathered unlimited data plans would be losing their precious data in favor of tiered shared data plans. With a huge outcry from the public today Verizon has released an official statement on the matter. While this doesn't fully clear things up, it shows they've noticed the outburst and are looking into how they'll handle the situation.
Verizon Wireless. I'm getting ready for the backlash now, and I bet Verizon is too. Today the news has just dropped that Verizon will be axing data plans for those using unlimited data on old "grandfathered" plans from back before 4G LTE and all that. If you've been enjoying unlimited data for $30 a month like many others, this will be coming to an end this summer.
Republic Wireless, a hybrid VOIP/mobile service with eye-popping low rates, are probably receiving your beta invitations now. Republic's unlimited WiFi calling and mobile data for just $19 a month is tempting - but their sole phone, the 1.5-year-old Android-powered LG Optimus One, isn't. As part of the survey for its latest Beta wave, the service provider has added a few details for its plans to expand its Android offerings.
Verizon is planning to release shared data plans for smartphones and tablets. More important shared family data plans so customers can pay one fee regarding data for the entire family and all of their devices. Latest reports suggested a mid-2012 release of such plans but this screenshots leads us to believe they are coming sooner than expected.
