    ....which is what the two articles linked in the first 2 posts on this topic said. It's for the Verizon Edge program only.

    OK, Verizon won.
    I've switched to T-Mobile.

    Verizon w/DroidX:
    $40 - 450 minutes talk, no texting plan
    $45 - unlimited corporate data (3G), no official tether

    T-Mobile w/Galaxy S4:
    $44 - unlimited talk and text
    $17.6 unlimited 4G + 2.5GB tether

    I would love to switch (especially to save a little bit of cash), but the reality for me is that they still have the best coverage in my home area and areas that I travel too.

    This 6gb with tether was originally for EDGE only, but they have since made it available to customers without the EDGE plan. How do I know this? Because I just put a customer on it here at Costco :) But, we have been told this is a limited time offer.

    Yes, even I wouldn't recommend T-Mobile for someone who will be traveling around the country and needing 4G connectivity all over. But there's something else about SIM card phones I like: you can Carrier-unlock them and use another Carrier's SIM to get better connectivity and/or calling rates elsewhere, if necessary.

    I called my local Costco (mid-September? ) before calling Verizon/T-Mobile, and they said they were not doing the Verizon Edge offer.

    I got my hopes up when I saw this and ran to the website to try and get this deal. It was not available on the website. So today I stopped in and talked to a rep - they tried and it kept trying to switch my data to the 2gb for 30..... Then I called Verizon to see what they would say and they told me that I could only get that deal if I switch to the Edge plan. Think I'll hang on a little bit longer and see what the best option is for me. Apparently I'm not meant to get that deal :(

    The email that I received said it is to be used as a 'last resort' only, and that it is a limited time offering. It's quite possible that it has ended.
