Verizon launches new $70 and $100 unlimited plans in Southern California
In a move to come up with some more competitive plan offerings, we are hearing that Verizon Wireless has launched new unlimited plans in Southern California.

The first one is the $69.99 unlimited talk & text plan, which is otherwise available for $89.99 a month. The other one will add unlimited web to the deal and come with a monthly price tag of $99.99, down from $119.99.

While these new plans are only available in Southern California right now, IntoMobile adds that if they turn out successful for Big Red, the leading U.S. carrier will not hesitate to make them accessible nationwide. Finally, it is said that you should look for the “Rev It Up” plans is you like what you just read.

@am0795: The plans are temporary; meaning youve only got 60 days from yesterday to sign up. Its on the promotional flyers at the stores. I think the only other stipulation is that you have to have a SoCal phone number...and be in, or renewing or starting, a new 2yr agreement; no month to month allowed here.

wow, VZW is turning up the heat. If this is successful it will get launched nationwide. Im sure though when LTE rolls out this will be the "3g only" plan. Theres no way they are gonna miss an opportunity to get a premium for LTE. Its just good business sence. That said, this puts them in line with Tmo and Sprint unlimited pricing, so it will be interesting to see how they react... and if ATT just copies VZW like always.. lol. You know what I'd like to see.. a "family data" plan.. where for like 60-80 bux, everyone in the family can have a smartphone. Seems expencive unless you got 3 or more lines that all want data devices, then its cheaper by far than 30 a line.

I normally don't respond like this. But, are you freaking retarded? Cus you obviously cant read or do math. "That said, this puts them in line with Tmo and Sprint unlimited pricing, so it will be interesting to see how they react..." Sprints Unlimited minutes, text and web is $69.99 a month. Thats $30 cheaper per month if you cant do the math. Which is $720 over a 24 month contract. Sure its in line with T mobiles pricing which does deal them a blow. But all these idiots bailing Sprint for Verizon or AT&T obviously make so much money that they don't have any debt and own their house outright. Cus any self respecting person should think with their wallet vs thinking with their "ad receptor." Oh "its the network" that you pay $720 extra per year for. So I plopped that into an Investment Calculator, lets say you invested that $720 in $30 per month to a Growth Stock Mutual Fund, one that gets 10% return after inflation. Lets say you live another 50 years you know what that $720 comes out to after compounding interest? $95,295.60. Have fun with Verizon.

It's great when people call other's out, "Cus you obviously cant read or do math." yet they themselves don't have all the facts straight. The plans listed in this "article" state unlimited talk & text, not unlimited "Any Mobile", unlimited minutes, that's any number in the US that is not a 900 number anytime, NOT just mobile number's, & unlimited messaging. Add unlimited data & it becomes $99.99. If you have any of the Android phones, that's essentially unlimited everything. Sprint - Everything Data - with Any Mobile, Anytime 450 $69.99. Sprint - Simply Everything - $99.99. I don't know about anyone else but I'm not seeing much of a price difference the 2 carriers truly unlimited minutes, messaging & data. Before you try & act like you have the right to school others...get all your facts straight...

sprint's plan>verizon's plan. Most people call other cell phones, so you don't even dent your anytime minutes pool on sprint.

I agree...but if you're going to compare & say, "This is Sprint's unlimited talk plan which is $30 cheaper." than that's not a factual statement is it? Don't compare apple's to orange's claiming they're both exactly the same, which is implied in individual's the statement, drawing the conclusion that the apple is better because it's cheaper. FACT: Sprint TRULY unlimited talk, text & data - $99.99. Verizon TRULY unlimited talk, text & data promo plan for Southern California - $99.99. Don't skew the FACTS because you personally prefer one over the other.

@llichtwalt I see what your saying on how doakie compares the two plans, but even your comparison isn't exact. Because Sprints $99.99 plan includes well Simply Everything, where as VZW includes only unlimited talk, text, and data. It doesn't include VZ navigator or TV or radio and not everyone out there is using Android phones. And anyone who keeps track of there pocket book would go with Sprints $69.99 everything data plan. Because about 99% of the population in the US is in the 21st century and have cell phones, the other 1% don't use a phone and never talk. So do us a favor and stop trying to be sooooo coool.

Lets say you were a customer who actually needed to make phone calls on their phone instead of just throwing away 70 bucks a month on a service that doesn't work in your area. Might as well have no cell phone at all at that point. So instead of investing 30 dollars into a GSMF you invest 70 dollars a month. I'm no mathmetician but I think you end up making more that way.

"If this turns out successful" Are you kidding me? If Verizon rolls something like this out, ESPECIALLY for smartphones, they'll blow the doors off of everyone. It's satisfying to see Big Red LOWERING prices instead of jacking them up like they did with those stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid required 9.99 plans for just about every phone worth having. Hopefully the next step will be eliminating that extra requirement.

So what should someone have to pay for an additional line?

19. VSWsales unregistered

Multimedia phones still *require a 9.99 Data plan, as Smartphones also *require the $29.99 data plan. (hence $69.99 unlimited Talk & Text + $29.99 unlimited Data = $99.99 unlimited everything) you still have the *required data plan, but the standard plan IS cheaper.

$9.99 4G Unlimited Data for Sprint still makes their unlimited plan $69.99 + $9.99 = $79.99. So go ahead and have your stupid expensive Verizon plan.

Agreed. Plus wireless tether on 4g is owning.

You mean in the one or two cities where 4G actually exists, Agent Orange Juice? I know that MM phones still require 9.99 data. I was saying that I hoped that Verizon followed up on this trend (if it continues at all) with dropkicking the MM requirement into the trashcan where it belongs. Jher, I wouldn't know, as obviously the rules for family plans are different.

these plans are available limited time.

Please re-read my original post - "SouthEast region" Meaning central Texas, select parts of Louisiana and a small portion of Florida.

First of all these blogs are for the exchange of information and opinion, not to insult other bloggers by calling them dads boy. Theres nothing wrong with someone who is part of a family plan paying for part of it.Ok that a side. Verizon has always offered plans and then stopped offering them. The 9.99 ad on for an additional line is hardly stupid, it seems to be the standard. Verizon has unlimited data I and my two daughters use it. However we each pay a separate fee for each line. They do have phone and data plans combos but Im not sure how much they are. Verizon still offers unlimited data unlike AT&T who has stopped. What would be nice is if if they would have some promo family plans that were not so very expensive for adding aditional lines.
