Instead of offering different tiers of service, Verizon now offers prepaid smartphone customers a single $45 a month plan that comes with unlimited voice minutes and text messaging plus 500MB of data. Customers who want more than 500MB of data can add it a la carte.
You can also now use 4G LTE smartphones on the new prepaid plans but they will only still work 3G.

Best Phone Plans: AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile Compared

posted by Admin 1:25 PM
Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Smartphone wireless plans didn’t used to be so complicated. You handed over about $200 for the phone, tried to get by with the minimum amount of voice, text and data — most carriers charged about $70 per month — and paid a little extra if you  needed more.Now, carriers want you to figure out exactly how much data you’ll use, down to the gigabyte. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile would also like you to stop paying up-front for a subsidized phone and instead pay the full price in monthly installments. In exchange, they’ll give you cheaper service, and may even let you upgrade to a new phone more often. But the discount you actually get depends on which carrier you’re on, how much data you’re using and how many people are on your family plan.

Verizon data widget must press for usage details

posted by Admin 4:43 AM
Sunday, August 5, 2012

I use the data widget on my Droid Bionic not because I need to monitor my data (I have unlimited data) but to understand what my clients would experience using the widget. What I notice is the widget does not update itself anymore, you must press the widget to get your correct usage details. This was not so until the recent updates. Before the update the widget would tell you your data usage just by looking at it but now you have to press the widget and the widget logs itself into your myverizon account and gives you your current usage including minutes, data, text and billing information.

So remember you must press the widget to get updated usage information and this will work on all plans including the new shared data plans.

Verizon to Allow Third-Party Tethering Apps on Android Phones

posted by Admin 7:42 AM
Wednesday, August 1, 2012

I have been using an application called Foxfi from the Google Play store for my hotspot. It is a free application and does not require any technical background to use. The app is very simple to use and works great. I also pay for the Verizon hotspots feature so I could test the performance of both and it seems I get better service from the free application Foxfi. Read the ruling by the FCC

Verizon Wireless response.” We still offer Mobile Broadband Connect, and the fee applies to customers using unlimited data plans. If a usage-based customer wants to subscribe, or continue to subscribe, to Mobile Broadband Connect, they can do so. They get both a high-quality robust tethering app and additional data allowances. On the other hand, a usage-based customer that wishes to tether other devices but does not wish to subscribe to Mobile Broadband Connect can cancel the service, purchase or obtain a third-party tethering application, and simply pay for the additional data usage”.

It serms Unlimited data users will have to give up an unlimited data plan only if they purchase a subsidized phone when renewing a two-year contract. In other words, if later this year you go into Verizon to upgrade to the latest iPhone and buy the phone for $200, you can kiss your unlimited data plan goodbye.

But if you shelled out the non-subsidized price for the device, about $650 for a 16GB iPhone 4S from Verizon, you keep your unlimited plan.

This is important for someone who has unlimited data on a 3G Smartphone now. If you wait to change to a 4G Smartphone after Verizon Wireless makes the change to shared data you will not be able to keep your Unlimited data plan for your 4G Smartphone. If you use more than 4 Gigabytes a month on your Smartphone then the unlimited data feature is important for you to keep. I personally use 22 Gigabytes a month because I watch a movie everyday on my Droid Bionic Smartphone but I have unlimited 4G data. A standard definition movie on Netflix uses 700 megabytes. I don’t have home internet I use my phone for everything. Read more
