    Just as we "predicted" in our news leak from yesterday, Verizon just launched their new "More Everything" plans. There aren't really any surprises here; for the most part, everything we included in our report yesterday is simply confirmed. Ultimately, these are basically the same structure as the Share Everything Plans, but you simply get a bit more overall. Keep in mind, you basically need to already be on a Share Everything Data Plan now to even consider this. If still have one of their older grandfathered Unlimited plans, then this will probably not be worth your attention.

    Here's the main breakdown:

    It appears that Verizon has been dragged into the price wars whether they liked it or not. It also appears they aren't wading too deeply into these wars though. This is a minor blip compared to what T-Mobile, Sprint and even AT&T have been doing with their prices. What do you think?

    Here's the link to Big Red's web landing spot for all the details on these new plans: More Everything Plan - Verizon Wireless

    Hmmmm. I was getting ready to jump to AT&T and their 10GB no contract plan. It would cost me $140 for three smartphone lines. I was gonna sell off my current VZW 2 grandfathered unlimited and dumphone lines. I just priced out a plan with this new program. If I sign up for Edge and do a 10GB plan I can get it for about $10 more than it would cost to jump to AT&T. Might not need 10GB but with Edge you get $20 off each line charge so that is saving $60 over the $30 it would for a 6-8GB plan. And I would also not have to worry about buying three new phones and losing my current numbers. Just have to buy one new smartphone. My gf was gonna get either the Moto X or Moto G anyway. Coming from an iPhoney 5.

    How is this for an LOL...we have 4 lines (only sharing minutes):

    - smartphone - unlimited data
    - smartphone - 6GB data
    - smartphone - 2GB data
    - featurephone

    When I logged in, the first thing I saw was, "if you switch to More Everything, you'll lose unlimited, BUT you can then buy 30GB instead!!!" Um...that's $225 FOR THE DATA ALONE. Think I'll pass on that offer (truthfully, our total data usage is around 5-6GB/month but it's the principle in this case!).

    Where do you see the $20 off the Edge lines?
    Nevermind, I see it.

    I pay 130.17 for 2 smartphones. That price is with an employee discount and not including taxes & surcharges.

    Phone 1: shares 700 minutes, 1000 texts & unlimited data.

    Phone 2: shares 700 minutes, 1000 texts & 2GB data plan.

    So going to the 3GB plan I save $4, but lose unlimited data.

    Decisions, decisions!

    But you gain the subsidized phone - in other words, to keep that unlimited data costs you @$15/mo. Now, that could be less if you don't upgrade every 2 years, or you buy cheaper used phones off EBAY.

    Well I went in and priced out a plan. Not even a consideration. If I join the Edge program they are gonna make me buy three new devices right off the bat. Can't bring my existing phones. So my bill will be around $220 for 3 smartphones with 10GB. Screw that. Oh well. AT&T here I come.

    I think we'd have to pay about $60 more a month....

    It'd just be smart to stay w/the system we have in place where the dummy line doesn't get upgraded and we do a card shuffle in a sense...

    Garemlin why not check out T-Mobile they will pay you termination fees if you switch and their devices are good. I switched to T-Mobile six months ago and am very satisfied with that carrier.
