Verizon Being Verizon

Sat Aug 03, 2019 5:03 pm

I ran the account analyzer against my 2GB data plan at verizon.com and it told me:

Looks like you've got more data than you need.

Based on your usage, we think the The New Verizon Plan Single Smartphone 5GB will give you just the right amount of data at a better price.

Ready to switch? Here's what you'll get.

Your monthly charges will increase by $4.75

Ok, I have a 2GB plan, VZW says I have all the data I need, then goes on to tell me a 5GB plan will give me just the right amount of data?

And its better price will be a monthly increase by $4.75?

I don't know who is stupider: Verizon, or the customers who apparently keep giving them money for services they don't need.

I'm impressed that you get by with only 2gb. Cheers to you being disciplined and making use of wifi!

I'm amazed you can make do with 2GB a month. It's only been 11 days from my data refresh date and I've already used 3.48GB of my 100GB allotment.

I called Verizon Tech Support last week about videos not downloading smoothly, or restarting correctly, the guy over there somewhere told me he could give me a new router and a good deal, he then said it will only cost you 20 bucks more a month, I told him to stuff it and called tech support the next day. I got a US tech support guy and he told me to ignore those guys over there and ran some diagnostics and had it running smoothly in ten minutes.

I have wifi at home and at work, I largely prefer to use laptops/desktops rather than my phone, and I don't watch videos on my phone.

I am thinking of getting decedent and streaming music on my commute, but then again most of the apps let you download to your phone ahead of time.

Perhaps this is a false economy these days, but I don't really see a reason to change my habits.

Some plans have charged punitive pricing if you went over the plan limits on data. Most just required buying a hunk of data, think our old plan it was $15 which would happen once a year or so. Now with a T-Mobile senior plan we are on what amounts to unlimited data.

I'll take Verizon's shenanigans anyday over AT&T charging me for their screw up.

Me neither, still Vodafone gives me 10 GB in 4.5G / unlimited SMS and voice for € 10,- / month
And the outsider Iliad operator gives me 30 GB in 4G / unlimited SMS and voice for half the price... have that SIM card on the tablet
