    And if he goes over his data limit will he fall off the "EDGE?"

    Yes, but a $30 Cloud will materialize beneath him and softly break his fall! LOL

    Originally I was just going to stick with my Motorola Droid Razr Maxx, but the Moto UI blows! I can barely use the smartphone for smartphone purposes.

    In regard to the AT&T pricing. You really need to read the article as the 10GB pricing for cheap is really for current customers. New customers are being forced onto their "Next" program. I called and inquired with them as I was about to make the jump. For 2 phones moving to AT&T would cost me $180 a month. Also I would have get new phones as my Verizon phones wouldn't work on AT&T's network (read the fine print!):

    New Customers Can Switch and Save

    Customers new to AT&T can get these best-ever prices on AT&T’s award-winning network when they sign up for a 10GB or larger bucket of data and purchase a phone with AT&T NextSM (no annual service contract and get a new device every year for $0 down) or bring their own device or purchase a phone at full retail price.

    Here’s an example: Today, Verizon charges $260 monthly for a comparable plan that’s now $160 from AT&T. A family with four smartphones with unlimited talk and text, and a shared 10GB bucket of data, could switch to AT&T from Verizon and save $100 a month. In addition to the big monthly savings, the family in this example would get a $400 bill credit for the four smartphone lines of service added.4

    Savings for Current AT&T Customers

    Current AT&T customers can save big with these new plans, too, when they choose a 10GB or larger bucket of data. For example, a family or small business with four smartphones could move to this new plan and save between $40 and $100 per month, depending on their current plan.5

    4. Savings: Compares 4 phones on AT&T Mobile Share® Value w/ no annual contracts to Verizon Share Everything®. Bill credit: offer ends 3/31/14. Must activate new postpaid wireless line. Must be in good standing for 45 days. Credit rec’d w/in 3 bills. Other charges & restr’s apply.

    5. Customers who choose to upgrade at the end of their current agreement are required to sign-up for NEXT, bring their own device or purchase a phone a full retail price in order to keep this plan

    I have been happy with my move to them. Got my N5 yesterday, and I just popped in my SIM, and off I went.

    To be clear you are not forced into the next program. My wife just did a SIM swap on her Verizon Moto X, and I ordered a N5 from the Google Play store. I am on no contract, no next plan, $130 for 2 smartphones sharing the 10GB of data (where I had 4 on Verizon), tethering included. I was paying $210 at Verizon for less data.

    Per the article # 5:

    5. Customers who choose to upgrade at the end of their current agreement are required to sign-up for NEXT, bring their own device or purchase a phone a full retail price in order to keep this plan

    So if you have a capable device that you can bring over, that is great or if you have the money to buy a phone outright that is great. If you don't have either then the NEXT plan is your only option. I got that from the article, plus when I tried to sign up with AT&T online as a new customer my bill jumped from $130 to $180 because I had to get new phones and would be put on a new contract. I then did an online chat and was told that in order to get the $130 I would have to join the NEXT program. So yes my bill would be $130, but I would have to pay $25+ for the phone rental.

    Apparently your experience was different, but from online chat and going through the steps online my quoted price was higher than the $130 that their new pricing shows.

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

    Most current VZW LTE phones can be unlocked to use on GSM carriers. I am getting my LG G2 unlocked and getting my gf and daughter Moto G's. Total of $360 out of pocket for phones. With my employee discount off the 10GB data cost it will be $140 before taxes. And after 45 days I will get a $100 credit per line. That pays for 2 months of service. Plus I will have around $600 in my pocket from selling my unlimited lines over getting them converted to the new plan which pays for the two new phones and then some.

    If I join this new VZW plan with 10GB and Edge it will cost $100 for data, $20 for each smartphone line plus I will be forced to buy three new phones and have the cost of each phone broke down into 24 payments added in. Most phones average about $20 a month. So with my employee discount it will cost $207 before taxes.

    I would love to but T-Mobile service is terrible in this area. And terrible is an understatement.

    T-Mobile is horrid in my area. I get 1x in my neighborhood, and 5 minutes away they get 4G lol. Doubt I'd ever go back to them. I'll do AT&T before ever trying T-Mobile again

    If everyone is 100% honest there is no disputing that Verizon has the best coverage in the nation. AT&T is so full of it when they make their claims. Data Network has some interesting data, and a searchable VZW coverage map about this.

    Very true. TMo and Sprint may be great options, locally, for some...but for anyone who does any decent amount of travel there really is no option other than VZW.

    If you really have a problem with VZW prices, maybe it's because you're paying for national coverage you don't need.
