    Exactly.. Right now monthly access fees are 9.99 per line say ur paying 230$ a month for 3 lines and u want to put ur brother on ur account u add his line to ur family plan for 9.99 a month... When the new plans drop it will be the higher price

    That's really stupid. Its just too many people out there like my mom who would just settle for this. I don't mind the losing unlimited data but an unjustifiable $40 for each device hell no.

    Preordered? You know unless you pay full retail your contract will renew when phone is activated ..... I honestly believed there would be a deal here but I really can't find one..... my bill would be 5$ cheaper with plan that would accommodate our needs.... oh, wait I forgot insurance and taxes .... that'll be another 40$ or more so no not a deal.....

    Straight off my hip from the Maxx

    What are the new single user price plans?

    And has anyone thought of switching to Straight Talk?

    That is not true. VZW has already confirmed that preorders done before June 28 will continue to enjoy unlimited data should they currently have that. In fact in the order screen you select to maintain your unlimited data with the phone.

    I am willing to bet that the Unlimited plans don't last a year before they just ax them, regardless of what they say today.

    Current Phone Model:
    LG G3 (VZW), Nexus 7 v2

    They would be changing the terms of the existing contracts which would open up a big can of worms. Everyone would have just cause to get out of their contracts free of charge.

    They will get rid of unlimited. It is coming. But it will be after the last of the unlimited contracts expire.

    Target date: June 28th 2014

    Yes, your contract starts upon the activation of your new phone but its under the terms of when you preordered. You have to go through the data selection process when you preorder.

    If any of you are wondering why I edited these recent posts, there was a botched quote tag that carried through a bunch of replies and had the wrong name showing up.

    I think all should be right now...
