Verizon curently charges $2 per MB and it's rounded up. Who is going to go for that?

Re: per byte pricing
Everyone here is looking at too big of a picture. They are going to charge per byte very soon but it's just going to push people into bundled plans and unlimited data. -- One never notices what has been done; one can only see what remains to be done. -Marie Curie

I dont get the whole hub-bub. As it stands right now, if your not on a data plan, dont they bill by the byte? So whats would be new here?
This post is to answer both dvd536 and dispatcher21
1. I guess I should have clarified but a phone isn't going to be able to download even 5 gigs unless you are using it as a modem downloading isos and p2p. yeah, 5 gigs is the cap right now.
2. I can't find the topics on howardforums in regards to the per byte billing but it basically closes a bunch of loopholes and charges anyone who accesses data that isn't on vcast. -- One never notices what has been done; one can only see what remains to be done. -Marie Curie
And the VZ inside-the-walled-garden services (GIN, MW 2.0, VCast, etc.) will not be available to COAM users, so they will all be strictly billed-by-the-byte. This will make such devices extremely expensive to use for data on VZ's network, so I don't see how they are really expecting many takers.
This thing is really all about PR. Much less to it than meets the eye.
