Verizon tossing in a free GB of data with new phone activation or upgrade on MORE Everything Plan
Verizon customers on the MORE Everything plan, who purchase and activate a new phone, or upgrade to a new handset, will receive an extra 1GB of data each month to use at their heart's content. The 1GB of data will be given out free each month for two years, as long as the phone remains active. There are some caveats, of course, so let's get to them. To get the free 1GB of data, the customer must already be signed up to a MORE Everything plan, receiving at least 1GB of data each month.

The free data is the icing on top of the MORE Everything cake, which already includes free NFL Mobile (just in time for the new season), more cloud storage, and access to Verizon Educational Tools.

So what can you do with that extra 1GB you will receive each month? Verizon has put together a list. You can watch 10 hours of NFL Mobile, or view your favorite movie, like The Departed, twice. Other ideas include listening to 90 minutes of streaming music, or visiting the internet 2000 times.

Just the other day, the nation's largest carrier announced a new $60 monthly deal for single line users, that includes unlimited talk, unlimited text and 2GB of data. Sign up for Verizon Edge, which allows you to pay off your new phone monthly, and save $10 a month. That would bring your monthly cost to $50. Once 30 days have been completed, and you've paid off at least 60% of the cost of your phone, you are allowed to upgrade to a new model.

"You can watch 10 hours of NFL Mobile, or view your favorite movie, like The Departed, twice. Other ideas include listening to 90 minutes of streaming music..." That must be some really high quality audio for the streaming music if 90 minutes of streaming audio is the same data as 10 hours of NFL mobile video or watching two entire movies.

NFL mobile was the very first thing I deleted when I rooted my phone back when I was with Verizon.

What is the point of having a free gb of data if they are just going to tether it anyways?

Just a way to deceive people to go with the more profitable "more everything" plan. It's going to funny seeing Verizon try to explain how their network is so bogged down by those terrible unlimited data people but they apparently can give out a free GB to millions of customers.

Thats exactly my point. They bitch and complain that their customers are using too much data so they are going to start tethering but they are "giving" away a free gb. How does that make sense?

You're misusing the word "tethering" and misunderstanding how Verizon is handling their throttling of 4G Unlimited users.

This has been out for the past 4 months. I have 30 gig plan and sometimes I hit 30.7 gigs so that extra gig does come in handy to avoid extra charges.

12 days into my billing cycle with T-Mobile, 58.2GB of data used. Suck a rooster, Verizon.
