    Read this today:
    Verizon Wireless to scrap unlimited plans for 4G users - Yahoo! News

    Officially no reason to stick with Verizon anymore. When September comes around, I'll be moving onto AT&T, and at least then I can just buy Google phones direct for $400 no contract.

    Boo on you Verizon. My X had a good run, but there's no value to continue paying what I do after my contract.

    everyone says boo on Verizon yet most other carriers already do this. We all knew this was coming. The way i look at it "for some people at least" If i have to pay for tiered data...i'd want to do it with the company that has the best coverage which in my case is VZW.

    +1 I'm actually looking forward to the data sharing plans and will probably hold out until they are available. My wife and I combined don't use 2GB/month, so I'll be happy to give up our unlimited plans to save $30/month.

    I've seen you in multiple threads defending this move, I can only conclude that you work for Verizon PR. What other carriers do this already? As far as I know Verizon is the first carrier to stop unlimited for grandfathered users. What happened to customer loyalty? I've been paying about $140 or more for unlimited for the past 5yrs and I know people who have stayed with verizon solely because they were grandfathered in on some older plan and didn't want to lose it.

    I can assure you i don't work for VZW lol.

    Doesn't AT&T and TMo already do tiered data?

    Unless it is $60+ for 2GB/month, I'll pay less.

    Do yourself a big favor and try Page Plus Cellular. I left VZW and now have my Droid X on PP and for $40 a month i get unlimited voice, unlimited text, and 100mb of data (which i never use anyhow).
    Only issue with PP is they do not allow 4G phones so you are limited.

    I also recently bought a HTC One X. AT&T is far better in my area than VZW. I get about 6 times more d/load speed. I am however on Straight Talk, NOT AT&T. If you bring your own AT&T phone and buy a sim for it, you use AT&T towers. I ordered a sim card and plan, it took 10 minutes and i am up and running with ALL unlimited including data. They do so i am told want you to stay at 2gb or less data per month. Again, never would ever get there :) The One X has been totally wide open since i got it and on day 11 i have only used 248mb of data :)

    Yeah and so has verizon for the past year. The fact that there ending grandfathering of unlimited data is something new and that's what we are complaining about.
