I use up just under or over 5GB every month (no tether). I see some that only use 1/2GB or less. I don't see how you people do that. Why have smartphones then?? My sister and my mother use 1.5 to 2GB per month and I see them as below average users.
In fact if I got a 4G phone I could see my usage easily going up. People are gonna start letting app developers dish out 4 or 5 updates before they actually do the update. Also I wonder if OTA's count towards the plan.
I am available for upgrade on July 21 so either Verizon lets me upgrade a little early or I'm leaving the service in Nov. when my contract expires.
All this ranting and venting is rather tiresome. It only indicates how immature/impotent you are. There are only 2 truths.
1) This may come as a surprise to some but VZW is a profit seeking company. Nothing wrong with that. But its out to make as much of a profit as it can. Its not your mother and it is not benign. It is what it is. If there were no competition there would be no limit as to rates.
2) All this speculation how prices and terms will be is even more pointless. We can guess all day but what is the point. Wait until they come out with the final figures. I suspect they don't even have the final numbers set in stone yet.
What to do? Wait until you have to make a decision and then see what is available then. That is my 3 cents. I may be wrong. I was wrong once myself
and yeah its just rampant speculation and rumors, and i for one dont believe it until verizon says it, not when droid-life or p3droid tells me. but still, there's nothing wrong with discussing the possibility. the forum would be pretty boring if everyone just talked about verified stuff haha
Do folks not appreciate that 4G and tiered data is a contradiction in premise? The faster the speed, the more data people will use.
VZW is COUNTING on people breaching 2GB so they are charged more. Probably looks great on a business case but most folks that use Netflix much will say BITE ME.
Lol it's another way of making money has nothing to do with illegal tethering. They can threaten u to stop. My friend who was grand fathered with att unlimited internet does illegal tethering and they threatened him to stop based on getting 20 gigabytes a month with internet.
if att did it and got away with it verizon figures why not.
The people who are illegally tethering are already locked in btw so they don't need to worry about this. And nobody does 200gb a month. That's insane.
I wonder how the overages will be treated? If I go over that 2gb cap, is it instantly an extra $10? In that case you might as well use that extra gig up. Or is anything under a gig over ok, and once you hit that extra gig you get charged the $10.
