Details were being teased yesterday afternoon, and an official announcement has arrived this morning. Verizon Wireless has announced the “More Everything” refresh, which well, is promising more of everything. Details point towards an increase in data and cloud storage, as well as included international messaging and more.
To that point, it seems the one piece that will not be classified as more is the pricing. In some cases, Share Everything users will be getting an increase in data — with no increase in pricing. Under this new More Everything setup, the 500MB, 1GB and 2GB data levels will all be seeing an increase, going to 1GB, 2GB and 3GB respectively.
Other aspects here touch on how users will be getting up to 25GB of cloud storage (or up to 250GB on a 10 line account), and how unlimited international messaging is being added to the unlimited domestic text, picture and video messaging. While the data allowance and cloud storage increases are nice to see, Verizon also made some changes for those using the Edge program.
Moving forward, More Everything customers who use Verizon Edge will be able to get a monthly discount for smartphone access. That will be coming as a $10 per month discount for plans with up to 8GB of data, and as $20 per month for those with a 10GB (or higher) plan. This could certainly attract some new users to the Edge program, especially for those with multiple line accounts.
And to clarify, so far this discount only applies to those using the Edge program, as opposed to those who purchase their phone under a standard two-year agreement option. Also not included are those who buy a device at full retail, or bring a compatible phone from outside, say a direct purchase from Motorola, such as when they were offering the deep discounts on the Moto X.
Verizon has said that “starting today, existing customers on Share Everything plans will be automatically moved to More Everything.”
