    Verizon Promotion Doubles Gigabytes for Same Price. Limited time though

    Surprisingly, there doesn't seem to be any catch to this. Simply apply. Although I'm not sure if this only applies to LTE devices.

    From Slashgear:

    Verizon double-data LTE promotion revealed - SlashGear

    It should be no surprise to you at this point that the DROID RAZR is about to be one big gigantic deal for both Verizon and Motorola what with its slick nature and LTE connectivity, and here’s another reason to get excited: a brand new double-data plan. Verizon will be starting a promotion on November 8th, 2011, in which both existing and new customers are eligible for double data plans. Those people getting a 2GB data plan now for $30 will soon be getting a 4GB data plan for that same $30. Sound like a pretty gooddeal to attach to your brand spanking new LTE device?

    Perhaps this is how they do away with grandfathered unlimited customers? If so, i dont really care lol 4gb is plenty of data for a cell phone

    I think 4gb is the correct data limit for $30. I could be biased because of my own data usage. 4gb would cover me just as well as my unlimited plan.

    Or Maybe this is just how they say Oop's 2 GB was not enough.
    But only for a limited time are we going to feel bad about it & let you bump the data plan if you hear about the option. Than when everybody on the 2gb plans start going over. They can say we let you change to 4gb for free & you chose not to, not our problem.

    Makes them look like the good guy again.

    Dumb move by verizon to keep the price the same with a 2gb cap in the first place. AT&T at least dropped their plan $5/mo once the cap hit. I think this is just their way of saying "look for only $5/mo more you get 2gb more of data."

    Nice to see they've addressed it and "upgraded" to 4gb. With this move though I see them pushing tethering plans with smartphone users more than ever now though.

    With AT&T's acquisition of TMo just over the horizon, I think we are going to see lots of this type of promo.

    You know, that's probably a great idea. If you approach them correctly they may just let some long-term customers take advantage of the ugrade even without the LTE. I've heard plenty of stories where people managed to negotiate with reps. Worth a try at least.

    Competition is great and lowers prices. Big Red is worried about AT&T and their network upgrade to LTE.

    well seeing as I've had VZW personally since I turned 18 and my mother was on VZW back when it was Air touch, I'm hoping. :D not to mention the line originally had a bionic on it, I just didn't want to give my brother a bionic :dry: I know selfish right, when I had a D2G laying around :biggrin:

    Doubtful, seeing how this promotionsays it is specifically for LTE customers. I have tried to do favors like this for people and the feature codes will not work. But thats in the store...maybe you would have better luck with some type of customer service supervisor. But by all means try...good luck.

    Not really too much work...if it would work it would be totally worth it...but it won't. If you read that document I posted you will see that switching back to a 3G phone will drop the feature.

    ahh somehow missed that. probably because the moment I saw 4G I figured it wouldn't work :D

    who knows maybe with 4G becoming so big they will up the cap to 4g eventually

    they better F'ing do this for the Nexus phone too...I can only imagine the chaos that would ensue if they give this deal ONLY to Razr peeps, who, oh by the way probably will NEVER get an unlocked bootloader; talk about a dilema for many folks!

    lol I'm already mad just thinking about the possibility that they may not offer it to those that want the Nexus (me!)

    Its not just for razr peeps...its a promotion for 4g phones in general. If the promotion is still running when the nexus drops then you will be able to get it.

    Update

    An update from Slashgear:
    Verizon Double Data deal rules clarified - SlashGear

    - all new customers who purchase a 4G smartphone are eligible for the double data plans

    - existing customers who have upgraded their service or purchased a 4G smartphone within the last 14 days will be eligible for the double
    data plans.

    - once a customer has the plan, they keep the plan as long as they are on a 4G
    smartphone

    . The limited time promotion applies to how long we will sell the plan, not how long customers get to use the plans.


    - Only smart phones, not mobile hotshots, USBs or tablets. Just smartphone plans.


    - customers can begin buying the plans today.


    =============

    The 14 day timeline sucks for TB, Charge and Bionic owners, but perhaps some of you can be convincing.

    The 14 day timeline is not true. I changed quite a few existing 4g customers to the 4gb plan today who have had phones well past 14 days. View attachment 42280
