    Big Red is doing their darnedest to entice folks with grandfathered unlimited plans to switch. Verizon just announced a limited time offer in which customers on a month-to-month plan can get pretty decent discounts if they switch to one of their "More Everything" plans. Stating on April 17th, any customer on a month-to-month plan who switches to a "More Everything" plan will get $10 off per month for the purchase of an 8GB plan. Alternatively, they can get $25 off per month for the 10GB plan. New customers aren't being left out either though.

    Here's a quote with the full details,

    It appears that the competitive pressure from T-Mobile and AT&T is having an affect on Verizon. What do you guys think of these new "enticements" from Big Red?

    I already thought this was out. About a week ago remember reading about it...Was that just a sneak peek? Anyways, you can give the credit, but if you are getting a smartphone added on, its gonna run $260 with 4 smartphones.

    That's because you're paying full retail for the phone. Don't get new phones, pay $160/mo.

    Would be nice to see the carriers get out of the subsidy business, and then we might start seeing some real price competition for phones.

    I'm fairly certain that you pay $260/mo for 4 smartphones whether you keep your old one or get a new one. The problem with Verizon is there is no "Bring your own phone" plan, unless I an sorely mistaken.

    It says right above that you get a $10 or $25 discount if you bring your own CDMA phone with a new account. At least that how I'm reading it?

    That's my understanding. This plan is $160....the Edge or whatever other program referred to for phones is separate and would be an additional $25/mo. Eventually people are going to start to realize they are probably wasting their money if they are upgrading their phone every 12-24 months.

    What do I think about Verizon trying to cut a deal for those of us with unlimited?

    Max plan 6 GB is not enough. Give me 10 GB and I would probably do it.

    But isn't the idea of this quicker upgrading? So after your honeymoon using your old phone, the latest and greatest will lure you in to fork over the money and then your plan goes up. Meanwhile, Verizon smiles and twirls it's mustache.

    Who are you telling?! Seems like everyday I get spam calls from Big Red reminding me I'm eligible for an upgrade. And let's not mention the emails they send.
