    if they want to force me to move to a tiered data plan when i want to upgrade my phone then I will:

    1. never renew my contract and buy my phone from another source or pay full retail(not)
    2. Go to Sprint and get better prices and the unlimited everything plan.
    I use about about 2gb to 8gb a month on my mDroid, I average about 5gb. Mostly I listen to podcasts and internet radio, sometimes watch jetflick while im at the gym running.

    Why is Verizon following AT&T footsteps??? I switched from AT&T because of this situation. As far as my knowledge Sprint is still offering unlimited Data Plans. After my contract, I thinking about switching to Sprint.

    This is a horrible decision! These are smartphones and not just an ordinary cellphone. That means I will be restricted on the amount of work I can do on my phone and have to worry about going over? That totally defeats the purpose of having a smartphone! Otherwise I will just switch back to a regular plan and not worry about it! It so bad now that if your phone can handle data, your have to get the data package even if You don't want to use it! I am glad I will be leaving this country in the next couple months and not have to deal with all this crap!!

    Ads

    By making me pay by the megabyte or gigabyte. Doesn't that mean I have to pay them to ship me ads and spam. This doesn't seem right, it would be like the U.S.postal service coming to me every month and asking me to give them a penny for every piece of junk mail and letter I received. Even though I didn't ask to have it sent to me. All these apps that use the google ads in these apps will use my paid for bandwidth. Or nearly every website I visit. Could you imagine if TV used this billing format. I paid for 20 hours of TV viewing a month, but I had to watch 20 minutes of commercials every hour. That wouldn't float for 2 minutes.

    i really hope this doesnt happen, but if it does, i think they should send out an ota to all the devices they can on their network that will add an area in settings that will tell us exactly how many mb's we've used in each billing cycle. it should be coded into the os, not just dialing #data. or at the very least an app that will tell us in (as close as possible) real time
