    I've had unlimited everything for a long time now, say about 6 years I think, we were grandfathered in when it went away.

    Proof that competition (T-Mobile) is a good thing.

    Thankful to all the carriers that dogged Verizon for not having unlimited data. I guess Rihanna can get back in the car

    Throttle after 22 gig if there is congestion. $125 a month. Heck if I am paying that much.

    T-Mobile does same thing but it's not necessarily throttled to a set speed I've never felt it. Where'd you get $125?

    I looked quicly, but I believe I saw 80 for unlimited data and 45 for one line with unlimited talk and text. Might be wrong.

    Easy to confuse. It's $80 for a single line (autopay required), and if you have 4 lines at home, like with a family plan, it's $45 per line (so, $180 a month for 4 lines).

    Well, I have to look again then. It might be worth it after all. Did I read correctly a while ago on here that load one contractors get some discount on Verizon? How much is it and how do you get it?

    Don't know about a Load One discount, but there was the have a job, get a % of data plans. OVM had it. Don't know if it's still active or if it will change with unlimited.

    There's a lot of pressure on these carriers to match or better the other's (hence Verizon finally coming on board). The plan might end at some point for new subscribers but now that there's really no contracts consumers will go to what works for them.
    I'm currently with TMobile and happy but in no way am I tied to them. Unlocked phones forever!

    I might check it out. I got 18G and dont even come close. I use like 5G a month on a average. As I always say, it's better to have to much than not enough!

    Heck, I am paying $190 for 3 lines with 20gigs right now with Verizon.
    I'll definitely look into it.
