Verizon's "More Everything" plan to debut tomorrow

Verizon's
Leaked internal documents reveal that Verizon will be starting its "More Everything" plan tomorrow. The 500MB, 1GB and 2GB "Share Everything" data tiers are being doubled to 1GB, 2GB and 3GB for the same price. Plans now include 25GB of cloud based storage and unlimited international messaging. Big Red is also taking some money off its Verizon Edge plans. Plans that include 8GB of data per month, or less, will get a $10 per month haircut in price. Those Verizon Edge plans covering 10GB of data or more, will receive a $20 a month price cut.

Verizon subscribers who are currently signed up for a "Share Everything" plan will automatically be migrated to the appropriate "More Everything" tier. And Verizon customers who purchased a new subsidized phone before November 13th, can take advantage of an open enrollment to Verizon Edge through March 31st. With Edge, customers pay the full retail price for a new phone, with the cost spread out over 24 months. Each monthly installment is added to your monthly bill. After 6 months (now 30 days for a promotion) if you have paid half the balance, you can trade in the phone for a new one and start all over again.
 
We should have some more information on Thursday when Verizon goes official with this. In the meantime, there is no question that both AT&T and Verizon are getting the inspiration to make recent price cuts from T-Mobile. Yes, the tail is still wagging the dog here in 2014.

AT&T is $15 for 8 GB or lower and $25 for 10GB or higher versus Verizon's $10 and $20. I am assuming that Edge also means BYOD (compatible with Verizon of course). The 25GB free cloud storage is nice too.

I think you meant $15 for 10GB and higher, but yea, the AT&T plan saved us $20 a month and everyone gets data now, win win.

Still dosent compete with other carriers. That and everyone keeps saying that "if you think Verizon costs to much, then switch". Well.........it seems to be that Verizon is thinking they are going to hit a wall with AT&T/ Sprint changing their pricing so drastically. I am as well a Verizon user, just getting sick of paying over a $100.00 for 4G service.

It would be nice if they would offer lower rates if you pay full price for a phone. I could understand those rates if you bought a $700-$900 phone for $200. Kind of like Tmobile. You shouldnt have to pay any more than $60 if you already paid for your phone and are well past that.

Cripton - you'll be paying just as much for T-Mobile as AT&T, seeing as how extra data is $20/month and the Jump is $10/month. If you're a very low user (under 500MB/month) then T-Mobile will do just fine.

I don't know why people seem to ignore the fact that Tmobile has unlimited internet. You can still browse web pages perfectly fine even when you are throttled. Slower than usual, but its still cheaper. $70 for unlimited at full speed. Lets say you have a family of 5. It would be $110 for unlimited everything and each person would get throttled after 500mb. Still a great deal. Add $20 if you want a phone at full speed all of the time.

Because their coverage blows compared to Big Red and AT&T.

GoBears, there is nothing you can say or no way to reason with Cripton. He routinely jumps in any thread trumpeting T-Mobile.

You look foolish thinking that I jump in threads just for Tmobile. I dont even have T-Mobile. Obviously, it would be up to the user to determine if they have coverage in their area/commutes. It's common sense, in which Im guessing some of you people don't have. Some people rarely leave the city. Some people get faster speeds on Tmobile HSPA+ than Verizon LTE. Some don't.

My $30/mo plan on T-Mo with 5GB of data disagrees strongly. Of course, I don't have many voice minutes, but I generally don't use my smartphone as a phone. :)

Even if VZW doesn't match T-Mo, this is an example of VZW having to respond to competition. There is no way Sprint/SoftBank is going to be allowed to acquire T-Mo.

I'll stay with my 30.00 month unlimited.

Sooo, I can stop paying $100+ a month for 2GB & that ridiculous $40 share everything crap when it's just one line?

10. theoak

Posts: 324; Member since: Nov 16, 2011

If I read it right ... 2GB should cost your $50 + $30 = $80. Assuming you are on Edge.

That's such a rip off.

Is that $50 for the 2GB of data + $30 for the line access fee? Wouldn't the customer have to add in the additional monthly payment of the price of the phone? I wasn't aware that Edge customers pay a lower $30 line access fee for phones instead of the $40 for other smartphone customers.

24. Jason78

Yes, Edge customers pay less for the access fee because Verizon isn't paying for your phone. So it is $30 per smartphone + $50 for 2GB of data + taxes and fees. That is still really expensive considering you can get AT&T unlimited talk & Text + 2.5 GB of LTE data for $45 using AT&T prepaid subsidiary AIO Wireless. That is a flat $45, the price includes all taxes and fees.

That's been their M.O. for some time now. They used to be a good company, but that has severely changed over the last five or so years. Too big for their britches now with a bunch of greedy, egomaniacal executives running the show. Nice to see T-Mobile, lousy or not, force the big dogs to lower some pricing.

They have a new plan that's unlimited mins and text and one gb for 60. If u go over its 15 per 500 mb. If you use your full 2 gb you'd be at 90 a month. If you don't use it all you could definitely save some more money.

Verizon is still building it's base...not loosing. Yes at a slightly slower rate. So your not going to see any real movement until they are not gaining subscribers. Most consumers are ignorant and think since they can upgrade early---it's a good deal. But it's a rip off. Verizon is out there to rip us off----for as long as they can.

Verizon isn't playing the value game that T-Mobile and Sprint are playing. Verizon has the largest and most mature network in the country. And the super vast majority of consumers paying for mobile services recognize that and continue to choose Verizon. Anyone who doesn't get that and thinks that T-Mobile is trendy and the cool thing to do is brag about their innovation can keep acting like fools while Verizon laughs at T-Mobile's balance sheet. Seriously. Even Sprint has 40% more revenue than T-Mobile. T-Mobile isn't making real money and their parent wants to ditch them. The joke is on the mouth breathers who barely speak english who think that is cool. And I say this having worked for T-Mobile company owned retail within the past 3 years. They know they suck.

So for the people who don't travel outside their city and enjoy fully unlimited LTE for $70 a month, they're fools? Not everyone needs the expanded coverage, so that just makes you sound like a ignorant person. Just saying.

3gb isn't twice 2gb.

Lower the stupid "line access" fees. 40 dollars for ONE smartphone? Gimme a break. It should be no more than the 10 dollars it used to be. Just because the phone accesses data it does not mean it should cost more to just access that ridiculously overpriced, tiny cup of data.
