Verizon adds 500MB Share Everything tier

0. phoneArena 02 Aug 2013, 00:57 posted on

With the Motorola Moto X introduction hogging the news on Thursday, Verizon slipped in some word about a new tier for its Share Everything plan; the new tier gives users 500MB of data each month for $40. That undercuts the previous low end of $50 monthly for 1GB of data. The plans give users unlimited talk and text and then the amount of data that the customer contracts for...

But in order to get that great low rate on T-mobile you have to buy a phone outright or pay more monthly to have a phone on their network. Still works out to $10 less than Verizon (for a top tier phone). Personally would pay the extra $10 for VZWs network coverage and internet speed ( on the rare occasion i'm not on wifi)

sounds like you are not paying anything when you buy a top tier phone from verizon. Californians pay 200 + tax on retail =250 for iphone 5 from verizon.

Yes, but if you look at the total prices indicated on the chart, that fact is taken into account. T-Mobile is cheaper.

Sorry phone arena, there has always been a $40 plan. 300mb of data and only 1 smartphone allowed on it and no data devices. My guess is they just up'd the data allowance on a plan that already existed!

When they wise up and bring unlimited data to the share everything plan at a price within $20 of my currrent bill. I would let go of my grandfathered unlimited plan with 5 lines, but my account uses an avg. of 40-80gb of data a month so unlimited is a must.

I can't fathom being restricted to Minibytes, I have one line with unlimited data and I hit 93.47 Gigabytes (95,713.280 Minibytes) in my previous billing cycle. Oh the poor dears who are restricted and limited, my heart bleeds for them!!

What does one do with Megabytes, seems so archaic?

FYKI two years back, I used almost 650MB data every month using EDGE and GPRS...

They have always had this plan, it wasn't advertised but I've been able to put customers on it since about a month after they launched their share everything plans.

After being unlimited I just can't go back. If you're sharing 500MB with others on your plan and not hitting your cap, I'm not even sure you really need a smartphone. :-/

Can't see how people are still willing to pay more than $50-$70 a month for cell phone service and sign a 2 year contract.
