Verizon extends discount on "More Everything" plan to those who bring their own device
Verizon has cut the price of its "More Everything" plan for those who are using their own smartphone. The new pricing starts on April 17th. Current Verizon subscribers paying month to month, can switch to a "More Everything" plan and will save $10 with the purchase of 8GB or less. This will bring the monthly access price for each smartphone down to $30. Those who purchase 10GB or more will save $25, which brings the access price for each smartphone down to $15 a month. The deal, which is available for a limited time, also includes customers on Verizon Edge. Phones brought over to the plan must be compatible with Verizon's pipeline.

The "More Everything" plan includes unlimited talk, and text along with unlimited international messaging, 25 GB of cloud storage per line, and three months free of the International Long Distance Value Plan and FamilyBase service. With the price cut, a family with four smartphones, who switch from month to month service, use Verizon Edge, or bring the phones to the Verizon network, will pay $160 a month for unlimited talk, text and 10GB of data. That matches AT&T's heavily advertised Mobile Share plan for a family of four,

Earlier this month, Verizon offered a similar discount to those customers using its Verizon Edge plan. With Edge, a customer can pay monthly for a non-subsidized phone, eliminating the two-year contract. You pay off your handset in 24 months. Once 30 days expires, and 50% of the phone is paid off, Verizon will allow you to get a new phone under the same terms.

Just got off the phone with a rep at Verizon to discuss this plan and how it would effect my account. I was on the Share Everything Plan, 4 phones, 8 gb data for $250 per month. They arbitrarily, without consent, moved me to the More Everything Plan but left the rate I pay the same and I do not get any additional services (except for the free cloud storage which is useless to me). The rep explained they are legally able to shift plans and offerings without consent since the 2 year contract is for the subsidized device purchase, not the plan (which is BS). In order to receive discounts to match what AT&T is currently offering (4 phones 10gb data $160 @mo) I would have to "Edge Up" all 4 devices, and agree to the new Edge promotional agreements, and still fulfill the remaining contract term. Also since I'd have to "trade-in" old devices I'm loosing their resell value (BTW my phones are IP5s, and a GS4). So to summarize how Verizon puts the screws to existing customers, I'd have to lose over $1200 in resell value, spend $675 in ETF, then purchase new phones under a new Edge agreement, in order to see a

I literally never thought this day would ever come. Which is why I switched to AT&T two months ago. Voice coverage and data speeds are MUCH better on AT&T in my area. I brought a few family members with me, now my bill is only $41 per phone. Better than AIO prices! I'm proud that I was one of the customers that ported away from Verizon and helped force this change, one of many reasons I'm sure. Verizon's LTE network is in need of serious help. I'm not sure it can handle users with extra gigabytes to blow.

BTW... you guys are such haters. If you were given a choice between using Verizon or T-Mobile and didn't have to pay for either service, you'd take Verizon all day. Don't deny'd just be lying to yourself.

Give both equal coverage, and people would still go to T-Mo en-masse. That's the only card Verizon has at play, is it's coverage. Coverage as it is? I'd have a helluva tough time choosing which, but hell.. why not both if they're free? That way I can call and text my friends overseas, roam overseas, etc with no problem and cheaply.. while at the same time having access to the extensive coverage Verizon has.

Roaming overseas at a whopping 128kbps. Don't get me wrong, TMobile is forcing a much needed change in the industry, but they're not able to back a lot of it up...mainly their network statements. I'm also sure that the majority of folks on this site would prefer coughing up $10-$15 more to get another 1-2gb of 4G if they've used up their monthly data on Verizon as apposed to TMobile's Unlimited 2G data service. They make it seem like you get Unlimited 4G and that's NOT the case. Don't even get me started on thei "Domestic Roaming" policy. Thank you for the change T-MO, but it's not going to work out.(why do you think they're wanting Sprint to buy them)

What are you talking about?? Plenty of people have went overseas already and report that they get LTE overseas. I'm not sure where you get your info from. And T-Mobile has an unlimited LTE option. I'm sure people would prefer the extra $10-30 dollars and get NO limit on T-Mo, or if anything they can get 1,3, or 5 gigs of high speed and unlimited 2G, leaving behind any worry of overages, and all at a reasonable price, instead of paying $20-30 more on Verizon to get just an extra 2-3GB. So counter to your statement, they do have an unlimited LTE option, so stop spouting lies. They do make sure to show the customer the difference, if anyone was so stupid as to read "1GB high speed data*--- *after data allotment speeds are throttled" and to think they have unlimited LTE on that plan is a pure moron. Did I say anything about T-Mo domestic roaming? Read again.. I said roam overseas, which I repeat again, is at FULL speed. Now of course that depends what country you are in, seeing as some countries don't even have 4G in them so obviously you can't expect you'll get speeds faster than the ones available. Otherwise you get unthrottled, unlimited speed abroad. To sum it up, everything you've stated is absolutely false, and it would do you good to actually research T-Mo instead of bashing it. Is it perfect? Almost! Once it converts all of it's 2G to LTE, by summer of 2015 (by end of this year they should be 50% done), and implements the 700 Mhz spectrum, coverage will vastly increase and speeds as well. What will you say then, when T-Mo no longer has 2G and the lowest speed they offer is LTE? Once their coverage expands they will be pretty much perfect. If they lower prices even more, they'll be unbeatable, but hell I'm not complaining.. they're offering substantial value as is.

"Those who purchase 10GB or more will save $25"?? The Edge deal is $20 off line access if 10gb or more. So, this means that month-to-month customers bringing their own phone will get a better deal than if they went on Edge? Makes no sense.

Actually it's a $25 discount on EDGE with 10gb or more. They changed it recently, but under the guise of a "promotion". Regardless they're both $25 off.

It's still frigging disgusting that they're charging a $30 line access fee (after all that's what it essentially is). $10 at most would seem reasonable. Otherwise, $25 if you are on edge plus phone cost, plus the the plan costs ($100/10GB), or it's $30 with you bringing your own phone, or $40 if you're getting a subsidized phone with 2 year contract (split the $250 payment over 2 years and it comes out $50 per line if they take this option).
