    Verizon Double Data Plans Now Tripled?

    My 3gig double data plan renewed last night but my data tripled.

    Did Verizon mess up or are we getting a data upgrade?

    Checking my plan in My Verizon still shows $40 3gig plan.

    You must have used less than 3GB of data last month and have a plan that was activated prior to 11-6-18.

    3GB base amount +
    3GB double data +
    3GB carryover data
    --------------------------
    = 9GB of data

    No, I activated on 12/18. Last month I used 5.04 of my 6 gigs.

    A friend whose activated a few days after I did gets his payment deducted tonight. I'll see if he gets a data boost or stay at 6.

    I also got a VZW text too.

    Verizon Msg: Congrats! We've added 3GB to your account. You can check your balance here: m.vzw.com/m/prepaid

    Hmmm. First I've heard about it. But a nice bonus for you.

    So are you under the impression this is a permanent data increase or just a one-time deal? Heck, I'd switch back to the $40 plan if I got 9GB/month.

    I'm on the post 11-2018 3gb double data plan. The plan renews in a few days. I'll report back if I get the bonus data.

    I was surprised to get it. I don't know if it is a one time gift or a new update to their prepaid plans.

    If it is a new update then I would think it would be across all prepaid double data plans.

    I'm waiting on the result of a friend's which renews tonight. He has the same plan as I do. I won't know until morning though.

    UPDATE: A friend on the 3gig double data only got his regular 6gig. My extra 3 gig must be a gift. I don't know why I got it though.

    UPDATE 2: More info to come!

    The new plans don’t include carryover data. They removed that months ago.

    When my plan renewed on 8/24 my other 2 lines got the double data right away. My 8GB line only showed the 8GB for a day or two. I was going to call by the end of the day if it didn't show up, but it did that evening. Then the next day they added another 8GB so I've got 24 GB this month on my line. I'm sure it's just a computer error when adding the bonus data. I won't complain about it, but last month I only used about 5 GB of my 16 so I'm usually good.

    You won't know for sure until on the 24th?

    My brother who just activated using a Wal-Mart boxed phone and a ebay pin on the 10th got a 3gig message this morning. His my verizon account hasn't updated yet though.

    I have to assume my extra 8 GB was just an error since the other lines didn't get any extra over the double data bonus. I'll know when the 24th comes around. I'd be glad if they decided to throw some extra at me. Even better would be my wife's line since she uses the most data of my 3 lines.

    My september plan updated with the normal 6gb....but my plan renewed on 10-14. I got a text saying I have a bonus 3gb. I checked the app and I have 9gb this month.

    Interesting! My brother above never got the extra 3 gig despite the text message.
