    Rumored Verizon Changes

    Let me start this by saying my friend told me this today, but he has a tendency to be full of crap, so take it for what it's worth. I don't really believe him, but thought I'd see if anyone on here had heard the same thing or if they work for Verizon and would know.

    He's saying they are ending their every 2 years discount and you will have to pay full price for every phone. He also said they are ending the unlimited Data Plans and it will now be pay per use.

    Thoughts?

    Re: Rumored Verizon Changes

    That is all going to be true. New every 2 is gone... People will get 1 more then it's gone.... It won't surprise me if they do tiered data. AT&T does.


    You can thank the iPhone for all of these changes with Verizon.

    If this is true, my initial thoughts are that they don't want customers anymore... especially those in the smart phone market.

    I really, really doubt this. If it does Boost Mobile and Cricket are going to see a lot of new business.

    How do you figure? AT&T doesn't have new every 2, and has tiered data plans already...

    Wow...To think I switched to Verizon for all their better services for new phones and what not from US Cellular and now it looks like USCC has the better upgrading options.

    AT&T also doesn't have a large customer base either...coincidence? I think not.

    Its a matter of time before they switch to this or get absorbed by a big guy. Cell phone business in general will screw everyone before it gets better.

    I have been with AT&T for quite some time now and I have gotten a new phone every 2 years or less, including the iPhone 4 at discount just this last December... This must be a very new development

    Re: Rumored Verizon Changes

    My understanding (family member works for Verizon but I do not) is the New Every Two was separate from your contract. You will still be able to get a new phone at discounted prices but ONLY when your actual contract is up for renewal.

    Re: Rumored Verizon Changes

    Check out the $25 plan from Virgin Mobile for unlimited data.

    Frankly I thought Verizon was making a TON OF MONEY.

    Re: Rumored Verizon Changes

    They got rid of the $50 discount (otherwise known as 'New Every 2') for a new phone after 20 months. You will still be able to get a new phone at the 2 year contract discounted price every 20 months.

    Tiered data plans for 4G is also true.
