    I thought your sis was on Pre Pay? My wife and middle daughter are on the pre pay, whatever it's called, that has unlimited calls/texts and 500MB data for $45 a month. For $5 more I get an extra 500MB of lte and unlimited throttled data. Heck even the throttled data is faster than what I was getting with Verizon at my house and around town so I dropped the extra 2GB for $10 feature. Whether an email takes 1/100 of a second or 1 second is of no consequence to me.

    Verizon is trying to block the people who have a dumb phone line, use the upgrade to get a smart phone and either sell it or switch it to another line.

    Yeah, agree this is just closing that loophole and nothing more.

    Although, curiously I did get a call just a few days ago about upgrading my phone and new plan options. Said I wasn't interested, she thanked me and that was the end of it.

    I've been getting those calls about every 3 months. Believe it's coming from my local VZW store, most likely as a "push" to generate revenues/business.

    Yup - it's just officially closing up the loophole. My 80 year old Mom won't be forced into a data plan like it was made to seem like this was all about. She's got a flip phone and text messaging blocked.

    The loophole they are closing would have been I got a smartphone with Mom's upgrade, moved it to my line and now Mom must keep data package on her phone since I used her flip phone upgrade on an Android. (this is just my way of explaining it).

    However if you have a family member that already has a smart phone, lie my mom, and doesn't want to use their upgrade this would have no effect.
