I have the Broadband 5G 59.95 plan and have had it for quite sometime now, I need to cut back and my contract isn't up til 12/2012. I tried to downgrade to a cheaper plan but when I tried the website said that I would have to upgrade to the IPAD. I don't think this is fair for Verizon to put me in this situation. Times are tough for everyone and you are trying to make a buck while I'm just trying to get by and make it through this rough time in my life. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I would really like to keep the computer if i could just get a cheaper plan that works. My daughter could use the computer, but she has internet service where she is living. Could I drop the plan and keep the computer for her to use without paying for the termination since it's really not my fault that you don't have another plan I could use? Or do i have to return the computer and still pay the fees? If I would have known that this would happen after this first year I have had this thing, I probably would have never gotten it.

 

Somebody help please...

I feel your pain. Verizon's data plan pricing on different devices is absolutely rediculous. It seems to me that if they offer $20 1 Gig /mo and $35 3Gig/mo plans on 3G mi-fi's and tablets, they should offer them on modems and notebooks too.  This infuriates me all the more since I signed up for a $39 plan and all I got (and still get) on it is 250 MEG/mo. Only saving grace there is that I don't need it often and can use wi-fi just about everywhere anyway so i couldn't justify $60 for 5 Gig back then ($50 now). It's sad. These money-minded business execs need to get a clue about fair value for dollar to the consumer, and quit bowing to investor pressor for higher profit margins and fatter dividends.

 

Yes I know that appeals like yours and mine get nothing but a laugh in the face and a pointed finger at us suckers as they laugh at us all the way to the bank, but we Americans have only ourselves to blame for a weak-kneed government incapable of properly regulating the wireless industry as it should, thanks to our apathy to lobbists and lawyers buying off Republican congressmen to assure the industry remains unregulated.
