Haven't you heard of people adding a feature line just to have the ability
to transfer upgrades? They have two lines and use BOTH upgrades for
smartphones. Why is that so hard to understand.
THis is how it works.
Say you have 4 lines.
2 lines have unlimited data(A and B) and 2 lines don't(C and D)
You transfers line A over to line C to upgrade
You don't lose unlimited because of a software loophole. If Verizon audits they can remove unlimited without reprecussions. Line A has to agree to the new terms and it is known accepting the new terms unlimited is not an option. Only Line A accepts the contract and terms and conditions.
So the only option is to upgrade line C and then move the phone over is the safest way to do it without losing unlimited.
adding a feature line is stupid. With tax/fees it would be almost $14 a month plus the discount cost and you have a useless line. just pay full price for the phone and quit trying to be sneaky about getting an upgrade to an unlimited data line. It's stuff like this which makes me wish Verizon would just cut the nonsense and end unlimited data. Then there wouldn't be any of this circus stuff.
Let's see Galaxy S5, $199 plus $35 activation fee, 24 payments of $14 a month = about $330 total =$564. Buying the phone outright would be $600. All that hassle for $36.
Excuse you. I never said I did that. But people do.
I only go over 4.7gbs once or twice a year if that.
Why the heck would I pay full price for a droid maxx, $599 when I can
upgrade through comcast get a $200 visa plus we got two trade up promos
from trading in old phones we weren't using. That's $100x2 plus $200x2
They make enough money off our $240 a month phone bill.
I am a smart honest consumer. I pay comcast every month for Internet at
home and access to their hot spots. Having unlimited, even though I don't
use it like some, gives me peace of mind. That's all.
" n order to see slowed speeds under Network Optimization, you have to meet
the following criteria:
Top 5% of data users (you use 4.7GB of data per month or more)
Enrolled on an unlimited data plan or feature
Have fulfilled their minimum contract term
Are attempting to use data on a cell site that is experiencing high demand
MORE Everything and other tiered data plans are not affected."
Meaning if I'm under contract, I'm not affected.
If you have Comcast you certainly don't need unlimited data since you have wi-fi, but whatever.
that 4.7 GB figure is for March. The average increases every month. Also the throttling is NOT automatic at 4.7 GB. Only IF a tower is congested and only WHEN a tower is congested. Why aren't people getting this yet? You can use 470 GB and never get throttled.
I understand that perfectly. I'm not complaining. It is for peace of mind.
I just want specifics and details.
And honestly nobody can say how bad it will be until October 1st
And actually they've changed their terms twice so far. Now if you're over
4.7 any time you're at a busy site during that billing cycle you're
