Verizon offers a family of four 16GB of data to share for $150/month; each line gets a free phone

Upgrade or activate a line on Verizon's Plan "L" or larger, and you will receive 2GB of free data per month for each line. And that won't change for as long as the line remains active on the current pricing tier. So here is how this works. Plan "L" normally comes with 8GB of data for a family of four to share. With the 2GB of free data per line per month, that comes out to 8GB of bonus data. Thus, a family of four will get 16GB of data to use every month for a price of $150/month.

And there is more. Each line receives a free Samsung Galaxy J3 V handset. The phone features a 5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 720 x 1280 resolution. Under the hood you'll find the Snapdragon 410 SoC carrying a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU, and the Adreno 306 GPU. 1.5GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable storage. The camera combo from back to front weighs in at 5MP/2MP, and a 2600mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 6.0 is pre-installed. The phone supports VoLTE allowing you to make Video calls and employ HD calling.

Move your number over from your current carrier to Big Red, and .the nation's largest carrier will give you up to $650 to pay off your phone or break your contract. Besides porting over your number, all you need to do trade-in your current handset and purchase a new one from Verizon.

You realize the taxes and fees are not added by the carrier correct? Taxes and fees are calculated based on your billing address and the rates are based on the local taxes and fcc surcharges.

Some fees are set by the carriers. The universal service fee, for instance. Taxes, no.

Verizon screwed me over big one time. I will never go back. They can go bleep themselves. Also phasing out my Yahoo email since Verizon bought them. Now looking at you PA. You deleted one of my comments yet I can find 15 hate comments on a single article not related to the material. Half of them like a essay. I don't see you deleting them. What's up with that?

Compared to 4 lines with 6gb each (24 if you're counting) for $120 with free phones this deal is garbage.

How about in building penetration, learn about network coverage and types before spewing your nonsense.

You mean the 200 million pops in 350 markets of band 12 with new markets popping up weekly?

You have to be kidding, are you idiots really comparing Tmo to Verizon??? Verizon service is consistently fast and reliable. I work in warehouses and out of our 600 employees between 7 buildings everyone who was Tmo can't get service or if they do its one bar. Don't ever compare a Bentley to a Scion. You get what you pay for.

true, but I don't need a Bentley to go to work or do shopping so I'm happy with t-mobile, are you happy with those monthly payments of that Bentley?

After working for Verizon 4 years and thinking they were the best, I've picked up a Sim for prepaid T-mobile. I'm getting faster data speeds and better building penetration than Verizon. T-mobile has come a long way in the last 2 years, I'm rather shocked. Have yet to travel much, but home and work I get better service, plus I seem to have unlimited video streaming, something I thought prepaid didn't get.

Horrible deal! You can get 16gb for two lines for $90. You can then add two more lines for $20 each, in which comes out to $130. Much cheaper!!!

You guys do understand that TMo is on a race to the bottom price wise while Verizon is on race to the top...? This is a good deal for those that don't need top of the line phones but reliable stable service. When will you understand that we that read this site make up like .0005% of actual cellular customers.

At times like this, I'm glad I currently don't live in the US. I'm paying about US$11/month (30 months) for unlimited LTE internet with no throttling. I must have used at least 200GB last month. The price was originally $25/mo, but I took home the $420 phone credit as cash, since I didn't need a new phone at the time. Thank you Taiwan.

I think Canada is/was even worse off than us Americans. But in the end the prices are pretty high in the good 'ol U S of A, more so for cable and internet. Congrats on the cheap phone plan.

Verizon offered bonus data when the S7 launched, I had that, but than they launched new cheaper data tiers under a new plan name, so I lost my bonus data changing plans. They will take this away too, or have you paying more for less, data always gets cheaper over time.

When I jumped to T-Mobile last year, I jumped on the 4-lines deal for $150. The 4th line is free and each line comes with 10GB of data. But which Binge On being active and free on all the accounts, we watch videos at no cost to data. I rarely exceed 2GB on my line for the whole month. The only videos I view on my phone are on YT or FB. I stream music wen I ride, but even in a month, that roughly 3GB. if I was on VZW I would have to pay at the time for a 4GB plan which was costly. Mobile data should cost no more than $1.00 per GB. Especially when you have 88M subscribers, and the highest rates per line vs comparable plans. Sorry VZW. The only way I bring my 4 lines back to VZW, to join my one line is if you give each line 10GB of data at no extra cost and each line is no more than $35 each.
