    Data issues?

    Counseling will not help you ladies, lol! I am sure we all have seen it verizon plans on doubling the cap or something. I have been told I overeat at the unlimited data buffet, 20 gb a month. I feel bad for you two giggers that's just a light snack. We really need to stop blaming netflix, it's a great service. We need to stop blaming data obese users like myself. Throttling us is not the answer but building a better service is.
    Have a great day!

    I heard that they're going to double it for those who have, or want to get, a 4G phone. We droid 3 users won't be affected I don't think. I've wondered for a while how Verizon can advertise their 4G through these commercials, and talk about all the things you can do with it, when they have a cap on their data anyway. You can't use 4G to the potential they like to advertise, and stay under the cap, unless you don't mind going over it and paying a lot extra a month, imo.

    I thought that all existing unlimited 3g users would be able to upgrade to a 4g device and still keep unlimited data?

    Data Issues

    I have just gotten off the phone with Verizon. As we all know you speak to one person and get one answer speak to another and get another answer. So for what it is worth it only applies to new customers. If you have unlimited you will continue to have unlimited for now. They are not doubling the price of the plan for 4g LTE they are doubling the amount you can use, example if you have the 2gb you will get 4gb, 5gb will go to 10gb and 10gb will go to 20gb. And it is for a limited time only. Once you are on that plan you will get to keep that plan.

    I have looked at the phone and for my area there is not much difference in speed to pay the higher price for the phone.

    I think most people already knew that, if u are on unlimited u are grandfathered in. I kmow people that pay 10 dollars a month unlimited because they were on a plan that belonged to a company that verizon bought and they still kept their plans. I am glad I have unlimited.

    Wow some of you guys use a lot! I rarely touch 1 gig a month! I don't stream or download music or use netflix either though and when Im home Im usually on wifi, not cuz I'm worried about the data but simply because it's faster. Also most of my friends have wifi at their houses too so I use it when I'm there as well. When I first got my phone it was like 3 months after they got rid of the unlimited which sucks, but I was worried if 2gigs would be enough and it's more than enough. QUICK QUESTION though..does using the gps on google maps use a LOT of data? Say I went on an 8 hour round trip and used my gps the whole time, any idea how much data I'd use? That's mainly the big reason I'm pissed I don't have unlimited.

    I guess in a way I am lucky 3G is so slow in NYC. I get at best 512Kbps most of the time (typically closer to 200) and just use wifi. Took a weekend trip to a better service location and I could see how with 2.5Mbps download you could burn through a lot of data... But with this piss poor 3G service I cannot see how any user could get close to 1 GB. I am actually considering dumping the unlimited plan and getting one of the cheaper minimum plans.

    I am paying $30 for unlimited, but the cheapest current smartphone data plan is 2 GB - for $30. So, there is nothing cheaper at the moment.

    As I recall, they used to tack on an extra $15 for exchange server syncing (for some reason - because they could, I guess.) You may be able to get that removed and still keep the $30 unlimited? Worth a call or a check of your plan online, I guess.

    I'm like you - I have unlimited but the most I have ever used is about 500 MB. I am near WiFi most of the time that I am using data, but even that I don't use that much. However, I figure that having unlimited is worth it for as long as they let me keep it.
