    Yeah everyone that has signed up for this promotion BE CAREFUL and check your bill. I was told I had the promotion, my bill came saturday and to my surprise my bill went up not down. After looking at it I noticed that they added the unlimited data plan to all my lines but did not give me the discounts I was suppose to get. I called customer service and they had no idea what was going on. I was told to get over it that I got a $20 discount on my primary line and that was all I was entitled to. I immediately asked to speak to a supervisor who told me that I better call the number on the flyer back because they have no information about the promotion and she did not believe me when I read it to her. So I called the number on the flyer and thank god I got a woman that knew what she was doing. Apparently they have to put the promotional code on all the lines. Finally after 1 1/2 hours I got it all straightened out, at least for now. Hopefully this does not happen each month!!

    Thanks for the Heads Up dlwhtrose but my bill seems to be in order - it looks like I am going to save about $30.00 a month, plus the upgrade on minutes and unlimited texts - this is by far the best thing to happen with me and VZW since 11/06/2009

    I just called the number on the flyer and the lady specifically asked me if I received the e-mail. Should I just try again tomorrow?

    I gave the same heads up because it happened to me. It was added by the CMO department, not regular CS reps. They do nothing about this promotion and 99.9% won't even know of it's existence. Since you got the promotion from the special phone number, it should also be the number called for any questions or problems with the way it was added.

    Just thought i'd bump the topic and say that for everyone who got this plan to double check you bill. I just saw mine and the bill was higher than ever before (218$!) and while after a while of explaining to the verizon rep how i got this plan (that she'd never heard of) she was able to work out what was wrong. And explained that somehow this was my last bill with my old plan...plus extra cost for switching plans...or something? Oh well, i said as long as my bill is 140$(two lines) next month i'll be happy.

    Yep, just checked mine and there are pro-rated charges for last month and they also charged one month ahead on mine. The discount is still being applied, just hope next month it will be much less.

    Mine looks something like this:

    Nationwide talk & Text 9.99

    Data Package Unlimited 29.99
    10/16-11/15

    Data Package Unlimited (month in advance) 29.99
    11/16-12/15

    Talk & Text Data $20 Disc 11/16/12/15 -20.00
    =======================================
    1. I didn't have the plan on 10/15-11/13 so how am I being charge for it when it is "back dated"?
    2. I actually got the plan on 11/12 or 11/13 which was three to four days ahead of the "new" billing cycle. Verizon told me I would be charge for the full month - even though I only had it for a few days. Hmmmmm....
    3. No $20 discount on the first month which according to the bill was 10/16-11/15. I don't understand why there was no discount there. Hmmmm....

    This has been very confusing for me.

    hmm

    I got this added about halfway through my billing cycle so this should be interesting. Ill get my bill on Friday. So, it should prorate the 20 discount for second half the month on my current smartphone lines. Since I've already paid for data at 30 for next month, it should refund this, and then recharge me 30 with 20 discount.. so really data should be a negative $20 next month.. jeez I just don't see that working out!

    Non smartphone lines should get a prorated 30 charge and prorated 20 discount, then future charge of 30 and another 20 discount.

    Ugghh, I just know this is going to be a hassel..

    I got my bill today and everything was perfect. The rep backdated the promo to the beginning of my billing period when I signed up for it so my bill reflected it this time. I saved forty bucks.

    The "black screens use less battery" theory only works if you have an AMOLED screen though.
