I think Verizon needs to implement ROLLOVER DATA!!! If you sign up for 2GB and you don't use 2GB, then that data rolls over the next month and so on. That be sweet. I think that would get people to change habits because everyone is thinking to build up that data, thus trying to use more wifi, or curtail your overall data usage initially, which in turn becomes a habit.
Don't get your tightie whities in a bunch if you don't like my humor or get offended when I skip putting smiley faces all over. IF you cannot handle online comments and get bent out of shape, go home.
I have unlimited and have no plans to drop off of it
I dont know how anyone can sty under a 2gb limit.
With 4g and the amount of apps that are preinstalled on your phone. Verizon advertises, streaming music, video, app updates. I use my phone as advertised and i dont tether
Just as i dont tether and use my cell data for home use, i dont use my wifi and use my home internet for phone use
How do they expect one to stay under a 2gb limit.
oh thats right.....they dont lol
and they dont lie about it, go over your limit and get charged
I am half convinced that the people making the most noise about this, are the people who have been bragging for years about how much data they use up and bragging about their grandfathered unlimited plans. They are doing things that nobody at VZW ever intended, but because they got away with it for a few years they now think that VZW owes it to them. And because their habits catered to this, these people now think that they "need" it.
You don't. You survived for years, decades in many cases, without having access to Facebook or Pandora 24/7/365 from a handheld unit.
No discussion on pricing for cellphone data would be complete without the (modified) "Natey2 Pricing Model/Formula for Smartphone Data" v1.2, which I recommend Carriers to adopt immediately:
F = K * GB^2 + C
F is the monthly fee to be charged by the Carrier.
K is the connection speed coefficient, e.g. with 3G being 1.0, and 4G being 1.5
GB is the amount of data transferred by user.
C is the fixed/base amount the Carriers want to make monthly regardless, e.g. $30
So, someone using 2GB on 3G will pay 1 x 2 x 2 + $30 , or $34 for that month.
On 4G, that would cost 1.5 x 2 x 2 + $30 , or $36 for the month.
Someone using 5GB?
On 3G, it would cost $55.00
On 4G, it would cost $67.50
And that guy using 20GB on 3G will pay $430 for the month.
