I feel another Facebook bomb coming... :icon_wink:
You made me think of something.
I'm on a "special" vzw promo plan. The 9.99/month/line unlimited data plan. I wonder if they'd take it away. Since if I'm not mistaken they're still giving it to people.
Now I'm looking into making my Rezound on Sprint! VZW has turned to nothing but greed over the past few years, they like to compare them selves to AT&T but the "grandfathered" data users still get to keep there unlimited plan! Man this really ticks me off!
"That is beneficial to us." Isn't the number one thing supposed to be the customer? What ever happen to that?
You could always use your BIONIC on AT&T
Unfortunately with each passing year it seems to be less about the customer. This can be said with a bunch of other big name companies as well
Could not have said it better!

You know this isn't Verizon's fault. This is either the Rep selling you something they could not promise or you being ignorant enough to believe that they were going to let you keep unlimited forever. Quit whining.
For myself, it just means when my contracts are up I will actually do a little more shopping.

A contract is a contract & if it locks us into Verizon for 2 years @ said price for a specific service (unlimited data) than they are locked into giving you unlimited data until the contract is up.
The only way they can get you off the contract is if you agree or when it expires.
So you are good until your contract is up but after that they will be coming for you & that would be the time to use your negotiating skills & loyalty to see if you can keep unlimited data.
Never hurts to ask !!!!
Let's keep this discussion about VZW and the news story and not about our opinions of each other.
Well I do believe there is something in the tos that says Verizon reserves the right to cancel/void the contact at any time, so maybe they will force people to switch by voiding their contracts
But a voided contract means neither of you are under contract any more which means they can no longer impose an early termination fee. I would happily accept a voided contract and go to a month-by-month on my G-Nex until I switched to another carrier for the Galaxy SIII or the PadFone.... or maybe even for a Note.
Exactly, all the people with unlimited data are upset about this but let's not turn it on each other, let's turn it on the real bad guys here- VERIZON...
I don't see how VZW is going to avoid heavy backlash on this one, just the fees they proposed before were enough to make some news stations, so what will this do?
Yeah man, you're right! I'm whining! The VZW rep has nothing to do with this or VZW the company! How dare I take someones word! The $800.00 sale he got had nothing to do with it I guess. The 3 new data lines at 30.00 a month were no incentive to lie to me. It's all my fault. Or maybe I am ignorant? How dare I try to protect myself from outrageous overages in the future! Why couldn't I keep unlimited forever? I'm the guy they want to have unlimited. I don't use over 7gbs a month.
Tools will be tools.
No personal attacks please...
I do agree it is Versions fault though, I heard from multiple local and tech support people that anyone on an unlimited 3g plan will be grandfathered in when they upgrade, and that was just a few months ago so Verizon was obviously telling them that they would get grandfathered in whenever they upgraded within the next 2 years at least
sprint is looking so much better. i just got into a new 2 yr contract. hopefully if they do decide to force my unlimited plan to 4gb a month, the contract would be void. in which case ill gladly give my money to sprint.
So even singal lines and or one line is unlimited the other is not u still lose unlimited?
That is exactly what we were told. It's been about 9 months.
9 months x 3 additional data plans= 27 data plan months - 27 data plan months x 30.00 per plan= 810.00
So, 810.00 is what I've paid so far into something that I would not have gotten had I not been misled. Not one of those lines has broken 1gb of data in any of those months.
Just have to grow my 2¢ worth onto the pot. The thing that irks me the most is when our contracts are up, here I fly off into an unsubstantiated rant, we scoot down to Verizon hoping for the best, and then we realize the new customer gets 4 gigs for 30 bucks and we only get 2 gigs for 30 bucks (prices subject to change without notice). Corporate America hands out bonuses based on new business, not how many people bail ship.
Sounds like you can keep unlimited if you stay with 3g. Seeing as how I doubt I'll ever see 4g where I live, I'm fine with that. Though vzw is pretty much the only carrier that works here. Att just got 3g here within the last year...
