    Well it might be harder to find these images since MOTOROLA has been going around asking sites to take them down

    I'm actually looking forward to the tiered data plans.

    Why?

    Because Verizon was quoted as stating that the data plans may be moving to a "pooled" system, like family minutes. I have two smartphones on our family plan and we pay $60. My wife and I both use our phones for websurfing and exchange email and we rarely go above 2 gigs combined. A tiered plan may save us money.

    Even with a 4g phone, I don't expect my usage patterns to increase that much.... maybe the occassional netflix movie during long car trips or flights. But with the way they are talking about structuring it, if you go over your tier allotment, you just pay an extra $10 for another gig of data. I'm sure they will also implement usage controls like they have with minutes.

    I may even be able to afford to get my teenage kids on shared data, too (although they will definitely need to have usage controls)

    Yeah, there's been lots of complaining about VZW on this board, but from my perspective most of what they've done has either affected a small % of users or has benefited the majority. You don't achieve the lowest turn in the industry by a wide margin by repeatedly shafting your customers.

    I expect VZW to continue to create value for me, and that doesn't preclude higher prices when they add new and expanded services.

    I've never been against tiered data plans, seeing as more most users it will allow them to save a few bucks, but i would still like it if they offered an unlimited plan. If that plan went up 5 or 10 to incorporate 4g, that's ok with me. But there are, and will be people soon that will go over their prescribed minute plan. why? because as i've stated many times with the incorporation of many new ideas and products, people will use their phone for many other things. Thus making their average usage go way up. You might argue that they could just use their computer for those things, then why offer the products at all? Don't offer products unless you have the network to back it up, in this case it's clear that verizon and every other network doesn't and they don't want to spend the money on upgrading it to do so. Yes i do now it's all about money, which is why they are going to change to tiered data, a company doesn't move one direction to save it's customers money, it knows that in time it's policies will in fact make them more money. You don't go into business to loose money, and this policy change will not make their profits go down, they are almost certain it will make it rise, or else they wouldn't be doing it. You don't see a 5-year outlook that makes a company loose 100 million dollars from where it's at now. You can argue till your blue in the face, but this policy will only make them money. And yes i understand that the company is allowed to make whatever choices it wants, and if we choose to follow them, that is our own problem. So while it may save some a few bucks now, it will come back in another form, one way or another.

    Again, it's MOBILE data, and they certainly have the networks to back that up. It's offered as a convenience, not an alternative to an ISP. Just a few years ago people were getting along just dandy without mobile data and now suddenly the ability to consume gigabytes of data while walking down the street is somehow a reasonable expectation of carriers.

    And the carriers have spent BILLIONS upgrading their networks, but even then there are only so many rights that can be secured for towers so there are very real constraints on capacity independent of cost.

    This is the full size image that hasnt been circulating as much.. the silverish gray handset is the one in speculation to possibly be the targa.
