    I would say you make a good point if losing unlimited was still up in the air. Since it is gone, and lets be honest, not coming back why the he|| not?

    I have the meaningless unlimited plan grandfathered. Regardless of what this pin head says there IS a difference. And to my fellow users also grandfathered you know Verizon will stick it to us just a matter of time. That's how Verizon rolls.

    I'll keep my unlimited data as long as I can. I've never gone over 450 minutes, and I've never exceeded 1000 texts, so for THOSE two things to be unlimited is meaningless to me. If/when I'm forced out, I'll figure out my best option at that time.

    Technically....unlimited data plans are still here....you just have to be grandfathered in and not use upgrades anymore. Or in my case......I have a 3 line family plan with unlimited data on the main line. I will upgrade the other lines...and just switch one to the main line.

    But yea....this guy is smoking some strong stuff to say unlimited doesnt mean anything. I have a Netflix account, web browsing, Tune In Radio app, Youtube, Facebook that says otherwise. When I use them regularly....I can hit 20GB - 30GB easy. I upgraded my phone line to unlimited talk n text before these share plans went in effect because I wound up going over it more than I planned.

    I remember when the argument was we have to get rid of unlimited because of bandwidth would become restricted. Well funny ever since this share everything data plan came out and 4g has expanded to a lot of areas, Verizon decides we'll start HomeFusion that will give 4g customers home internet for a nominal price of course. So if the bandwidth was not there for us to keep unlimited data then where is this bandwidth coming from to give everyone with 4g internet at home as well as 4g internet on all there devices? Sounds like Verizon just wants to get paid twice for the same internet you already had as in 4g hotspot for instance. When it comes to grandfathered unlimited plans, Craigslist is your friend when needing to buy another phone.

    Fran Shammo, Verizon's CFO shared an interesting perspective about Verizon's shared data plans while he was speaking at a Goldman Sachs investor conference yesterday. He basically touted the benefits of Verizon's Shared Data Plans, and didn't think unlimited plans represented any real value to most consumers. He believes that unlimited data will simply go by the way side. Here's a direct quote,



    [Editor's Note: There are a few of problems with this argument. First, if most consumers are not really using that much data, as he suggests, then there would be no reason for the carriers to switch to tiered data plans. Second, it doesn't matter if a person doesn't regularly use up that much data on a normal basis. The fact they might need to at some point and will have to pay exorbitant fees in order to do so, is simply a way for the carrier to price gouge the customer. In fact, it's possible that the reason some users come in lower than their data allowance is because they are afraid of overage charges. The idea of an unlimited data plan is that it offers the "peace of mind" option for customers. Lastly, Verizon's Shared Data Plans would likely be more palatable if they were a bit more cost effective and less aggressively tilted in the carriers favor. It just makes Verizon look greedy.]

    Of course, that was just my editorial rant above. There are multiple perspectives to this, and we would like to hear yours.

    Source: Verizon
    SO let me see if I understand his argument... We used to pay $30 a month for Unlimited. Now we pay $30 a month for 2GB and have to share that 2GB with other phones in the plan, and that is somehow to *my* benefit? LOL

    This is why my GF and I just switched to Sprint a few days ago. F Verizon.
