Important News For Verizon Wireless Customers

Verizon Wireless told Wall Street analysts that it plans to force customers to switch to a new data plan on their next upgrade.

These new plans will no longer offer unlimited data. The plan is that by midsummer, Verizon customers will have to switch their data plans on their next upgrade, analysts said.

This policy even applies to customers that are grandfathered with an unlimited plan. Many customers are unhappy with this new plan.

"That was the reason I switched from AT&T to Verizon - because of all the stuff they had going on. So yeah, if they slowed it down I'd have to switch servers because I need unlimited data," Verizon customer Remington McFadden said.

Verizon has not said what kind of alternative plan it will offer or how much it will cost.

Meh..

I heard even the people who have the unlimited data don't use more than 4GB.

Either way, hop on Sprint. They are rolling out their 4GLTE network coming this summer, and lucky for me I live in San Antonio, because SA will one of their first markets to roll it out to. Even on a 4GLTE network, Sprint will be offering unlimited data. Only reason why that is possible is because Sprint doesn't have as much subscribers on their network than let's say AT&T and Verizon.

All in all.. I'm sure that'll change once the ball gets rolling. As everything does..

I have Verizon, and I frequent on their 4GLTE network a bit.. and all in all, I never go past the 4GB of data. I just wish their network and their 4GLTE had more coverage at times..

I've been with Sprint for almost 4 years now, cheesed my way in using my dads old employee benefits package. Got 2 brand new phones and over 3 months of service without paying even a penny. Of course my monthly bill is slightly higher than it was previously with US Cellular, but I have basically everything I can get (though I don't need all this crap).
I am switching back to US Cellular at the end of this contract though, USC is running no-contracts and easier phone upgrades etc, and I battle with Sprint coverage in this area on and off. USC isn't really known for this area, more known for the mid-west, but they are one of the most reliable here. I was with USC for something like 12+ years prior to Sprint and never had any problems (only switched because of the deal I got through my dad etc).

Unlimited Data. Data Usage for cycle ending 9/7 - 6.9 GB. That's actually a tad low for me too. Oh, and HAI EVERYBODY!

My best friend (and his wife and 3 kids) all used his phone for Facebook/YouTube, etc... Though he recently has had to switch up his service, Verizon told him he was using around 10gb/month.
