    Verizon ticked off a lot of people when they did away with that. I don't know why they were being so hard-headed about it.

    From what I read, there were a relatively small number of people who were using hundreds of GB's of data. I don't know if they were essentially commercial businesses using their data plans for everything, or people who either streamed tons of stuff, or didn't know how to stop the apps from running full time, but it was enough to throttle others by bogging down the lines.

    Throttle after 22 gb of usage.

    I just looked at it for my account. One key difference I noticed is the following. Something to be aware of if you have an employer discount.

    Your employee discount doesn't apply to the new Verizon Plan Unlimited option.
    So I get almost 20% off of the other plans, but it doesn't apply to the unlimited. Currently I get 12 gb with rollover for one month for $64. Unlimited would cost me $110.

    I was actually contemplating dropping down to the 8gb plan, but looks like they have done away with the 12 gb plan. So if I went to 8gb and then wanted to go up my only option would be the unlimited. I think I'll stick with what I have.

    Ditto.

    I'm on 8 and considered the 12gig plan last Friday...3 days ago.

    Now it is gone.

    I'd go from a current $154 to $211. No thanks. We'll keep our rollover.

    I have had the unlimited when they first started. They did go up to $50 on me. I think im switching to the straight talk. Alot cheaper and no FEES.

    They hit you for data and a fee of you want to tether a wifi hotspot as well. I'm going to look into this tonight. It adds about $80 to my plan. But I could cut Comcast Internet out for good, and stream Apple TV on the boat...

    I had unlimited at one point and I let them talk me out of it to "Save Money". Now I'm using 15 gb a month and it's costing me a fortune

    I don't have a lot of experience with data plans and usage, so please excuse my ignorance, but how do you use 15 GB per month, or does that include business?

    Its not that hard if you have multiple devices on a plan. Or if you using a tablet in the field or using it for a hotspot.

    Otherwise the culprit is probably high definition porn.

    I went today and got my plan switched to the unlimited. I was paying $125 a month for a phone and a tablet with 8 gigs. I upgraded today to an iPhone 7 and unlimited data for $132 a month.

    I'm on a 2gb/month plan. I'm on wifi at home and work. I usually have about a gig of rollover. My bill is $26/month after trading in my old GS5 for a GS7 on black Friday.

    It's $35/month, but I got some major credits for the trade in on black Friday. Not to mention a VR headset and a $200 visa gift card. I'm robbing them, which felt good after switching from Sprint after a huge customer service fuckup pushed me over the edge. I had been with Sprint since 03.

    I can't tell which company that is with. Please clarify which company and plan and is it open to everyone?
