I am mobile but the whole grandfather in with unlimited data is a lie. Now when you upgrade or buy ANY new phone you have to switch to their unlimited plan. Which is $45 smart phones a month, $30 for regular phones, $10 for tablets. Which isn't bad....but wait if you want data....you have to pay $50 for 1 gb that all have to share 2 gb $60, 10 is $100. On average most people use about 3 gb.
Right now my plan is 700 with 250 text on two phones and pay per text on 3. I have one smart phone with unlimited and two regular phones and my bill pre taxes is $115. We never go over mind in fact we used about 250 combined (most people are in network) With the new plan with out data its $90 add in that my phone say I average 2 gb a month (I use lots of WiFi.) That is $150 before taxes.

I am pissed. And I have to stay with them until 11/24/2013




Edit to add: this takes affect June 28, 2012 NOT before, and it only affects you when you use your renewal discount OR add a device. You can keep your old plan IF you buy your phones retail ($400-800 for smart phones, $100-400 for regular phones)

Yup I knew this. Don't know when they're going to force us all over. No upgrades for us anymore! When our contract is up we are done. Everyone has to do this eventually if they stay with Verizon grandfathered in or not.

 Our bill has been the same for over two years, I love Verizon, and we are getting new phones this month.

Call them and tell them you want to switch to AT&T, but you're "giving them a chance to change your mind". They will sometimes find a way to lower your bill. Otherwise, I would seriously consider eating the early cancellation fees and switching. AT&T is $30/month for 3G of data or $50/month for 5G. Individually, anyway. And I love the rollover minutes.
