Re: Already on LTE
Well on my order sheet it says 4G data plan unlimited, and I upgraded to a new phone with said same plan (thunderbolt -> Droid Charge) without loosing unlimited after the deal expired. I even had the old $5 text deal, which I think they did away w/ too.
I wasn't tricked--I just wasn't happy, my phone # went to a corporate plan with my new employer which doesn't have unlimited so this is one of the ways they did away with say me ever having unlimited again...
But in any case the point is that ALL of the iphone ecosystem will be moved into the new scheme when they upgrade, not to mention the other 90+%. For those few brave who suffered (myself included) through the 4G revolution we should get hazzard pay. Those people are the ones they will have to get creative in coercing off their unlimited plans.
They could always add a $10 fee like Sprint did...There are many ways to monetize this and make it uncomfortable.
And for those who say they will leave, well Verizon will be happy. Unfortunately when you open the phone book, all of the players will be singing the same tune. Even Sprint will have to on their new network.
I do remember paying $70 15 years ago for 300 minutes on CellOne and texting didn't even exist. In today's dollars that would be more expensive than an unlimited plan. So I know we complain but at the end of the day what you get for the money is vastly better.
In any case I am happy with Verizon...The network in the north east is just great. I understand you can't have some guy streaming youtube 3 hrs a day and not impact the cell, and by deprioritizing Verizon made it right versus the AT&T miserable way of handling it.
