    Not even with a VPN, that is clever of them, I guess those will be slowed to 720p or 480p? Interesting...

    Yep, definitely time to get a Lifetime Subscription to a VPN service that can handle at least 5 devices, and set it up for all of my Verizon Wireless devices to run through it!

    I've tried seeing things from their point of view, but my head won't fit that far up my rectum!

    Good. The only way Verizon Wireless EVER gets the message is when something hits them where it REALLY hurts: Their bank accounts and their stock value!

    It was the old normal, too. And it was long overdue for making a comeback. The next thing that needs to make a comeback is 2-year contracts that actually guarantee the CUSTOMER their pricing for the length of the contract, along with early renewal options that keep the contract in force for ANOTHER 2 years with the pricing unchanged!

    Oops, there I go again, making sense! I keep forgetting that with Verizon Wireless, that's not allowed!
    Photobucket's policy changes SUCK!

    New signature coming soon-ish...

Subscribing to Verizon Home Services is NOT the same thing as using Verizon's mobile phone cellular unlimited data plan as a substitute for a broadband Internet connection. I'm not sure why this difference is so hard to comprehend.
    Hey, I quoted you verbatim, word for word. You never once mentioned "mobile phone cellular" service in that post. You're the one who is confused. Everyone else understands the distinction perfectly. You are the one who made the stupid and totally incorrect statement, as quoted above in large font.

    Just admit your error and move on. You'll feel a lot better about it.

    Unlimited Data Plan Changes To Affect Everyone On 8/23

    Actually, I am tempted to switch to this. We are currently on the MORE EVERY UNL TLK TXT 15GB with 4 lines. I pay $171.79 per month. What would I gain and what would I lose if I switch? At first glance, it would appear that we would get unlimited data, with the risk of slow down and lose Canada and Mexico coverage. What else am I missing? Would the total price be about the same for me? Are there any corporate discounts allowed with this plan?

    No discounts. You'd also lose high speed hot spot.

    Military discount only.
    You lose priority on the tower.
    You lose the ability to stream higher than 480p.
    No Canada/Mexico coverage.
    Based on VZW's verbiage queen, you are subject to tax on the entire bill amount vs just the line fee (data isn't taxed). So, under the old plan you paid tax on the $20 line fee x #lines, but this plan has you pay tax on $160 (for 4 lines).


    You gain 15GB hotspot per line.
    You gain more data per line.
    Talk and text is still unlimited.

    There might be more differences too.

    It's apparently no longer a 15% discount but now worded as a "$15" discount too.

    Ouch. Hopefully AT&T doesn't follow VZW's lead here.

    AT&T can't be one upped as most expensive! I'm sure they'll think of something even more asinine within the next couple weeks.

    I feel this is really false advertising by Verizon. The consumer would automatically thinks its $50/line. So cool. Let's switch two lines for $50 each equals $100

    I honestly think Verizon was seeing more 6-7-8 lines on the unlimited data plans that they launched in feb 2017.

    Ive been a Verizon (and att) stockholder for past 10 years. I follow trends closely.

    Verizon used to report revenue PER LINE up to around 2011. Their revenue per line was going down big time with more $9.99 add a lines. Than they started forcing every subsidized smart phone (regardless if you don't use it) to have mandatory data plan cause of the subsidy.

    Now Verizon likely sees these 6-8 lines on the unlimited data. 6 lines equals $220 on old plan. 8 lines equals $260. Just do the simple math. That's like $36 a line for 6 lines and $32 dollars a line for 8 lines. Heck of a deal and beats many of the prepaid single line plans with their great network.

    Wow, that will mean huge increases in people's taxes unless they have some way they allocate the data charge portion of the per line fee so that it can be exempt from taxes.

    Because there are people (and I know a few) that don't have home Wi-Fi and are content to watch a HD Video through their iPhone connected to their HD Television.

    I'm very happy Verizon is doing this.
