After talking to a supervisor, finally got my unlimited data plan re-instated. Took some talking, but it was worth it. We both agreed that a smartphone is a smartphone, and that I changed nothing in my plan (family plan) to warrent my losing the unlimited data. I kept my Droid X and made it my back-up phone. It never did lose the unlimited data plan, only my LG Spectrum. But now, even my Spectrum has unlimited data.
Very cool! It was sad to see the unlimited plan go away for new customers but thank goodness for being grandfathered in...Ive already ran up 12 GB in less than 2 weeks!
What bothered me was how Verizon advertised it...they slated the new data plans as 'exciting'. How is it exciting? What's exciting about once paying $30 for unlimited data and now paying $30 for 2 or 4 GB's? We now have to limit ourselves when utilizing the phone for the reason we got them!
I see Verizon's reasons for changing the data plans because probably 80-90% mainly use under 4 gigs a month but for the other 20% gets the shaft if they are not allowed to be grandfathered in to keep the unlimited plans... Also it did not help that you had a number of users complaining about being charged for a unlimited plan they reported they did not use..
I dont get it, users complained about paying 30.00 for unlimited data plans but dont have issues paying 30.00 dollars for 2 Gigs... Complain because a company charge you for more than you use and but you would be open to get less for the same price. The world is so confusing..
Good to hear that your situation was resolved because for a power user the unlimited data plan is a must have item and without it the device seems so limited...
Until they offer a shared plan for families that allow for a family to share about 5 gig a month for 50 bucks or less it is a total ripofff-kids in college and HS never go over the VZ net always wifi and same with workers only road warriors use a lot of road air time via VZ net and so We pay 90 a month-yes one unlimited and me with a dumb phone I refuse to upgrade as I will get added another 30 for 120 a month plus 90 for 700 voice pus 30 for text and stuff (Which if kids would use email on iPhones they would not pee money away on texts etc as they could use the date on their 3 gig. but its absurd to pay for reach phone and it burns the users on either end- a parent who uses 3 gig who has 2 kids who use 0;.1 giig should hardl bye paying more than 90 a month-do they think that families can pay now 270 a month for cell -250 for FIOS--I mean its a good service but somebody will sffer share and then they will jump in-they have claimed to plan to add data share for now over 6 months and keep milling it as VZ is famous for=-BILL CREEP--I love their network but their corporate monkeys are just awful awful people who care nothing about loyalty-only about ripping me off every step of the way--it is always a chore to be sure I am not overpaying-always-the guy just tried to have me upgrade on my wife's phone and that would have forced me into a smart phone and I dont want more data at 30 a month-the col.is breaking my budget and I am about to toss them out for US cellular and god forbid ATT? OYE!
