    Incorrect. After June 28th those plans will not exist.

    People don't text anymore? That's not true even a little. Texting is still alive and well.
    You can use Google or iMessage only with people on the same system using the same app. Everyone I know texts. If anything, no one makes phones calls anymore. lol

    I use Google Voice to get around paying for texting but the main reason I actually did that is so I could use my tablet more without having to switch to my phone just to talk to people. But I also have unlimited data to... But yes texting is very much alive and anyone who says otherwise must not drive anywhere...

    FYI, I called customer service to complain and they acknowledged my complaint. She didn't say, but she knew exactly what I was saying and made me feel like others have this same complaint! We need to keep up the pressure on them!

    IMO you should consider a pay as you go plan, $30-$50 depending on minutes/ data. I put my wife on a $50 PAYG T-Mobile and a $200 walmart samsung android with front facing camera (great phone). No insurance and $1.50 in taxes this saved us $20 a month over putting her on my account with VZW.

    If I took advantage of the new share plans then it would cost us $10 a month more and I would lose my unlimited data, so it is not going to happen for now!

    On topic, I see a lot of people saying to upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy SIII now to keep your unlimited data. Is there a reason to do this if you already have a high end phone (Droid Razr, Galaxy Nexus, Razr Maxx, Rezound)? I think doing so would be a waste of money in my mind.
    I am considering using my upgrade and either keeping my other phone as a backup (drop insurance) or selling it on eBay or something. This way I am gauranteed 2 more years of unlimited.... Only a few days to decide

    Just did a quick chat with Verizon online and the rep told me individual lines will not be affected. They will stay the same, so you don't have to worry about upgrading before June 28th to keep your current plan. Also, all they would say about renewing a contract that is grand-fathered in under unlimited data was this... "If you upgrade again and renew your contract you may have an option to be grand fathered in with your plan. However if this option is not given you will need to select a new plan." So, basically, if they offer you to stay with your current plan, you can. If they don't, you can't. But obviously the rep didn't know whether that will be an option or not.

    Understandable, but looking at the numbers, for another $50 you get nine times more data, makes no sense, yes I know if you buy more you get a better deal, but a 9-1 better deal, no store or business "except Verizon" would try to sell you something like this.

    I can't believe this part:

    A Verizon Wireless spokeswoman said early Wednesday, one day after the launch, that the carrier is "very pleased with the response to our announcement."

    Way out of touch!!

    I didn't say it was a good deal just that that's how it usually works. Verizon is not making any friends right now.

    It would only cost you 0.01 per month more as long as you use under 2 GB per month. You use 1 kb over 2 GB and it will cost you more.

    It was said that for existing customers, you have the choice to either switch to the Share Everything plan, or just give up unlimited data and be put onto tiered data plans.
