Share Everything plans arriving June 28 on Verizon, unlimited talk and text plus 2GB data for $100 a month

Verizon kept its word to introduce its new shared data plans in the summer, and they are indeed arriving June 28, so hopefully you took advantage of that Galaxy S III preorder, because when the handset actually launches, you might have to pay full price for keeping your grandfathered unlimited plan...

Your reading this incorrectly the 50 is for data. so if you have a smart phone the cheapest plan is 90 thank verizon. you can get a basic phone and plan still for 70 300 mbs data

Adding it up, my bill would go down $18 per month. If I took my 2 lines to the 6GB Plan. That's a drop of $216 off my yearly VZW Bill. Hey, I'll take it lol.

Nope, I have 1400 Min. So there's another benefit. I can start talking more.

So there is no benefit. It's not like he's going to start talking more on the phone all of the sudden. Also VZW has been giving unlimited calls to any cell phone already. So that only helps landline calls which are few and far between.

Verizon has not offered an unlimited 'any' mobile to mobile. It has always been a strictly VZW to VZW mobile to mobile. I sell for them. Trust me.

In certain markets that plan is offered. I work for VZW adn I am in a market that is currently offering the promotion for mobile to any mobile calling.

There is a benefit, my bill would go down $18 per month. That's called a reduction in spending cost. All aside, no I am not going to start talking more, but I could always use paying less while getting the same if not more of what I already have.

1. "Your" (we capitalize the first letter of a sentence in most places in the world)

2. The word you wnated was "sucks", not "suck".

3. It's so awesome when someone calls someone out on their grammar and has multiple grammatical errors. Thanks for that.

Wow... the first victim was called out for bad grammar, the first caller was called out by another for bad grammar and spelling, and, finally, the second caller was also called out by another for bad spelling. Wow... that was three victims and three callers, for a total of four distinct participants in a single grammar/spelling correction string... LOL!

Overall, some people may see a slight increase (the couple of examples I did went up $10), but you're also going from 700 shared mins to Unlimited, which shouldn't be TOO much of a problem. I could still see some people getting upset though. As for a single line, I feel they should still offer some kind of limited minute plan to save people money. Right now you can get 450 mins, Unlimited Text, and 2GB for $90. While only a $10 increase, I know I don't use anywhere close to 450 mins in a month.

Most people dont need or want unlimted mins most people want less plans for mins as it is. This is a huge problem.

ok.. am I the only one that thinks that their share plans are completely convoluted? And people thought Tmobile's value plan was slightly confusing when it first dropped. Good luck explaining all that to customers, VZW reps. lol.

It also doesnt even seem like a deal at all when you start adding things in. Yea its slightly cheaper... or is it? Screw it.. i dont feel like rereading it 4 times to figure out the math. Someone tell me how much it would cost to share 10gig between 2 smartphones and have a 3rd regular phone. Is there anything between 450mins and unlimited? Is that shared or per phone? lol.

2 smart phones $40 ea.
1 Basic $30
10G Data $100
Total cost $210 Mo.
What you get Unlimited Talk & Text on all phone and share 10GB of Data, That is a seriously high amount of data for 2 smartphones and 1 basic though.

yea.. still to high. thanks for the math though.

i can get the same thing.. 2 unlimited talk/text smartphones w/ 5gigs each, and a 3rd regular line with 500min/unl text for $135 on Tmobile and there is no such thing as overage.

10GB with 2 Smart, 1 Basic would cost $100 for base + $80 for 2 Smart + $30 for Basic. $210.

worse part about this remix is if you want to add a smart phone to your plan its 40 more a month but then u share the 10 gigs or 60 a month and add 2 gigs its way over priced and they are going to be losing my three lines if they force me to switch,.

Honestly if you have multiple lines with smartphones this could be a savings for you, take mine for instance we have 4 smartphones paying an extra $120 a mo. just in data that we all don't use and getting 2000 shre min. adding mine up would save me $40 a mo. on 4 smart phones with the 6GB plan and add Unlimited talking .... hell ya I'll take it thats $480 savings in a year.
Understandably to some this would be expensie with one smartphone but the way things are going most everyone is going to smartphones and paying alot for data thats not being used. So for those with multiple smartphones this a big benefit.

I concur...but "Multiple lines with smartphones is the ONLY situation where you'll save money. The person with multiple lines and only one of them a smartphone, is going to get raped.

Definitely not worth it for me.

For roughly the same cost...

Now: (4 smartphones)
700 voice minutes (NEVER have come close to using them all in a month)
Unlimited text
14 GB (4+4+4+2) data

Share Everything plan:
Unlimited voice minutes (useless)
Unlimited text (no change)
8 GB data (loss of 6GB!!!)

I wanted a true shared data option for ANY minute plan.

VERIZON, YOU FAILED BIG TIME.

You have a valid point in some areas but one area in which I think people are not thinking about is even now that you do have 14 total gigs your phones cannot share them all. Each phone is limited to its own allowance. With the new plans each line on the account gets the ability to use the total amount of data. This may or may not benefit you however to feel as if you have 14gb of usable data isn't entirely accurate since each line is capped at a seperate point.

this article is very confusing. What is written is diferent then what is in the picture. The article says a hundred a month for a smartphone with data. but also writes a smart is only forty then 60 more for data. Are they written that data will be optional. sounds like it. But if you go by the picture then the cheapest plans is 50 for a smartphone which for a single plan is nice
