Verizon aiming at Sprint with "Everything Unlimited" $99 plan

    If there is one thing I've been envious about Sprint customers about, it's the "all you can eat everything" plan. I don't like having to calculate up my minutes of voice use, the number of texts I send or the amount of data I upload.

    It appears that Verizon has tapped into my thoughts and is testing an all you can eat plan for $99. I am sure that not everything is truly unlimited as it seems like nothing "unlimited" is really "unlimited" now a days. Aside from the false advertising aspect of that aside, I'm glad to see Verizon offering something similar.

    Testing seems to be happening in the Los Angeles, San Diego area and represents a $20-per-month savings from what most customers are currently paying.

    Thanks Shadez for the tip!

    North/Central Texas, as well. Got the email yesterday and called them about it. He used the phrase "central Texas", but I'm definitely North Central TX.

    did anyone miss the part where it said domestic long distance calls dont apply? Who wants to go back to the days where you had to worry about where your calls are going to/coming from.

    It's mobile to mobile - maybe that's their way of saying if someone calls you long distance from their landline, that counts against your anytime minutes.

    I was about to ask this.
    Also with this plan it would be awesome to be able to do the add a line for 10 dollars, i think thats what mine is now. But i'm sure it wont pan out like that. Or everyone would use that plan and verizon would lose money :(

    wasn't there talk about Verizon going to a tiered data package once they get LTE up and running?

    This seems counter-intuitive for them to come out with an "unlimited" plan when they are going to be rolling out tiered data plans. Unless they have ditched that plan and are just going with the "eff-it, give the people what they want" strategy.

    Am I missing something here? Isn't the Sprint all you can eat plan $ 69.99? How does $99.00 compete with $69.99? I know Verizon is better and that is why I have them but I don't get the wow factor of this story.

    Sprints plan includes data at $ 69.99. Thus it is "all you can eat". VZW is $ 99.00 all you can eat. So am I missing something?

    You could be right, I'm not that familiar with Sprints pricing, and just going by whats in the article:

    "Verizon's current postpaid Nationwide Talk & Text unlimited plan goes for $89.99 with a two-year contract. In L.A. and San Diego, however, Verizon is offering that service for $69.99 per month. The addition of the carrier's $29.99 per month unlimited smartphone data plan brings the total cost of unlimited talking, texting and smartphone data to $99.99 per month--the same price as Sprint's Simply Everything offering, which includes limitless talking, texting, data and other services. T-Mobile USA also offers unlimited talk, text and data for $99 per month."

    In fact, I will even ask further about why is this a story about a "Test" market? Verizon already has unlimited talk for $69.00 and if you add the data pack at 29.99 you get $ 99.00 all you can eat. This has been available for some time.
