    They began to take the "my way or highway" stance soon after assimilating Alltel into their cdma collective.

    I don't think this will actually affect that many people to the point they will completely abandon ship. I had unlimited data, gave it away, and don't regret it. I didn't need it, and a lot of people with it now don't really need it. It was abused, Verizon took notice, and here we are on limited plans. I'm not surprised.

    Can titles not be changed in this new format??!?!

    Common sense dictates that if you can edit your post to say it's 8/24....you should be able to change the title of the thread so folks like me who know it's 8/24 don't read the title on this site and get worked up.

    the kilo-unlim. is how the system represents the unlimited data. It's still in gigs. so that person is using...a lot. I've seen a lot of usage here go sky high. But I can see why Vz wants to lower the congestion on some specific users, even though we cry foul. However, targeting only unlim. users is pretty low. We're still paying the same amount every month, just like every other Vz customer...

    Ok, that is pretty ridiculous, I've gone a bit high this month myself, I'm at 13gb with 8 days left, however I did flash my phone with a new rom while on the road and was downloading my apps sans wifi, this doesn't happen often.

    I personally use about 10gb a month, I cannot afford to spend the money they want for 10gb. I use so much because I drive alot while listening to google play music and have no wifi while driving. I feel that's with the amount of data consumption and the way there is this push for cloud services the 2gb a month is just a little on the low side. I wouldn't have a problem with plans like 5gb 10gb 15gb for $20 $30 $40 or $30 $40 $50 and honestly would it hurt their bottom line that much? stop being so damned greedy Big Red.

    There are other loopholes very similar that will still work. But they won't work for everyone.

    No there will be no mass exodus from VZW over this. I chuckle every time something new is implemented and the same question arises every tiime. Where does the mass exodus go now? Thought so.

    I used about 7gigs average when I was at college. The wifi didn't reach very well in my suit so I opted my phone for the usage. I made sure to root it so I didn't have to pay the extra fee to do so. Now that I'm home it doesn't matter much if I have it or not, but if I move out again..i shall use it again! Now it's the basic principle of the fact. Vz wants to put it's foot in it's mouth for offering too good of a service? Oh well! Suck it up buttercup!

    I'd still like to see the actual numbers for data use, not the ripped from thin air "4.7Gb" is more than 95% of all users.

    Again, if bandwidth is so horribly congested, why does VZW continue to push video apps like the NFL?
