Unlimited users are limited to 100GB on Verizon Wireless old unlimited plans

Back in January this year Verizon said that they would target customers that used more than 200GB in one month and make them change their plan because their usage damaged the quality of their network. This amount of data is considered excessive by Verizon for a mobile phone user.
I was told this week that has changed to 100GB and this is the new level Verizon will be targeting!

Have you been targeted for high data use by Verizon Wireless?

AT&T , T-Mobile and Sprints’s new plans

New Plans for AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint were just introduced. AT&T’s new Mobile Share Advantage plan eliminates data overage charges for its mobile customers. The plans will be available from 21 August. Essentially, the company plans to throttle data speeds to 128 Kbps once caps are reached rather than charge for extra data.

Not to be left out of the limelight, T-Mobile bustled in with a new unlimited plan called T-Mobile One as part of its “12th Un-carrier move”.

In typical showbiz style, T-Mobile US CEO John Legere unveiled the move in a video blog, declaring: “The era of the data plan is over. After Un-carrier 12, the wireless industry will never be the same again.”T-Mobile One will offer unlimited talk, unlimited text and unlimited high-speed 4G LTE smartphone data from 6 September. The obvious downsides are just 128 Kbps speeds on tetheringand of course an FUP: customers using more than 26 GB a month “may see their data traffic prioritised behind other users.”

T-Mobile lso described it as a “radically simple subscription”, but see what you make of this:

“A family of four can get T-Mobile One for just $40 per line…The first line is $70 a month
the second is $50 a month, and additional lines are only $20 a month up to 8 lines withautopay. And it’s just $5 more a month per line without auto pay. All include unlimited talk and text and unlimited 4G LTE smartphone data while on our blazing-fast network.”

Sprint also launched its own unlimited plan, jostling for headlines with T-Mobile US. The Unlimited Freedom plan offers two lines of unlimited talk, text and data for $100 a month.
Marcelo Claure, Sprint president and CEO, said the company wants to provide “simple, worry-free and affordable wireless plans” to its customers.”There can be a lot of frustration and confusion around wireless offers, with too much focus on gigabytes and extra charges. Our answer is the simplicity of Unlimited Freedom,” he said.

Google Maps for Android gets Wi-Fi-only mode and SD card download option

Google today launched two new features for Google Maps for Android: a Wi-Fi Only mode, and the option to store offline map data on removable memory cards. Together, the two features are especially useful for those traveling overseas, where data roaming is expensive. The Wi-Fi Only mode allows users to stay connected to data networks for functions like email, while avoiding data charges for mapping, relying instead only on offline map data previously downloaded, and on Wi-Fi service when available. Users can also download extensive map data before their trip — or over Wi-Fi while traveling — and store it on a removable memory card for navigation without using mobile data while roaming. The features are also useful for non-traveling users with limited data plans or spotty service locally. The company did not announce whether the Wi-Fi Only mode will come to Google Maps for iOS.
