I would have been happy to keep paying you $30 a month for unlimited data, plus $45 for 450 mins, 250 texts. I was using an average of around 3 GB/ month. Since being forced off the unlimited data by the $20 price increase, I switched to Amazon music stored on my phone, using WiFi wherever possible, and now my usage is down to less than 200 MB/month, using less than 15 MB in the past week! So I switched to the 1 GB plan, now paying $25 less per month than under the unlimited data plan. I even converted another line paying you $30 a month to paying $20. You all wanted to get greedy, sorry I won! I beat your game!
Doesn't sound like a bad thing at all. You clearly were always paying too much to keep unlimited data even before the increase if you weren't using much. So this forced change benefited you and made you actually pay for what you need. Sounds like a win/win. Verizon got you off of unlimited (their goal for all of us on unlimited) and you got a cheaper bill.
Actually Verizon Wireless won as you "played the game" exactly how they wanted you to.
