    If you are on limited data like me then you may like to know that Verizon has started the "twice the data" promotion activation today.

    This is for existing and new customers who are on tiered data plans.

    Basically if you are on a 2gig a month data plan you can now get 4gig for the same cost and so on and so forth....5gig to 10 gig allowance....

    This promotion does not increase cost, does not increase your contract length or nor does it add any additional fees to your account. It is simply a way of getting more data for what you are already paying.

    To get this promotion call Verizon on your mobile phone and ask for the "twice the data" promotion which is a limited time offer for the holiday season. Once on this promotion you are grandfathered in and will stay on it until you change your plan.

    Understand that this does not include data use over tethering or over wi-fi hotspot it only increases the data amount allowed on your smartphone itself... but the cool thing is that (say you were on the 2 gig limit plan) you now have two gigabytes that you could use tethering in addition to the 2 gigabyte you were having to split using for both phone and tethering.

    SPECIAL NOTE: please note I do not work for nor am I associated with verizon other than being a customer of theirs and discovered this on a article on christian science monitor which I will put below...

    That is nice. My son has the 2gb plan, but looking at the Verizon site, it is saying it is when you buy a 4G LTE smartphone. I will have to have him check into that.

    extra interesting....I only have 1 line....and I was not the account owner....an account owner by verizon definition is the person fiscally responsible for paying the bill. As non account owner...I wonder who's responsible for my phone....

    it is for 4g phones only, if you currently have a 4g phone on the 2gb plan you can change to the 4gb plan. Ive changed quite a few in the store today.
