    You better believe before I give up my unlimted I'm going to milk every last bit of data I can... I'll make it my mission to use 1tb plus a month... I'll become the local hotspot... I'll host a damn lan party off my unlimted tethered data. When they close the account and try to charge me for the data I'll never pay... let them try to ruin my credit.

    yeah, eat it Verizon!!!

    Or just let me keep my unlimted upgrade my phone, pay my bill... and use my 12gb or so a month and be a happy customer who has been with you on my own plan since 2006 and whose mother has been with you since 1998 on airtouch.... that's much better

    I purchased outright as well - but joined in with Son's shared plan -

    This plan has only 4gb data - unlimited text etc, but still $100 each a month.
    Travel across country in severe storm - required constant view to dodge tornado threat.
    Those few hours killed entire shared 4GB data plan. I was a bit furious -
    But you should of heard my Son.

    There's no way I could handled anything but unlimited. It takes almost 4GB just to download everything I use to mod my device with. Not to mention all the extras I use to develop with

    Ironically this is exactly how I upgraded one of my unlimited lines using the Edge program, and the other was a CLNR. It's fairly easy to get them to give a newer CLNR model to replace a non-performing older model.

    A few months away from 3 years with my Rezound. Still going strong thanks to custom roms and some obsessive tweaking. Still nothing out there that motivates me to upgrade (at full retail to keep unlimited)...waiting for a beast with a 4.7"-5" screen.

    Although I have gone crazy with widgets for RSS feeds and so memory is always an issue, hence why I've avoided upgrading to phones with only 2 gigs ram. I think maybe something will come out Q4 that suits what I'm looking for.

    Alternatively, I might grab a phone that works off EBAY 6 months after its out....figure it would go for @ $450.

    Actually I thought this was the case adding myself as the second line to my Son's Account to be a $10 add on -
    But far from it. Not sure how this works.

    Maybe the original plan has to be unlimited perhaps?
    This was set up by Costco handling all the moves when I purchased the S4 there.

    So, let's see if I have this straight, almost a year after T-Mobile announces its version of this plan, albeit without screwing people out of "unlimited" (ahem, 5G) data, they say, "don't sign "up" with a contract, just pay for it over 24 months". Only question and I think I know the answer already, but if you try to get out of your plan early, don't you owe the balance of what you owe on the device? Also, say a year into the "plan" you decide to upgrade, what happens to the money you paid toward the device for $25/month?

    I don't see this as anything more than Verizon adding a few more mirrors to their confusing structured plans.
