Today I went to check with verizon before signing up for t-mobile. The manager knows me and has helped me out a few times over the years. He verified that all the verizon promotions on pre-paid are for 3g data only--no 4lte included. I told him thanks for your help, but it is time to move to t-mobile and cut my $144 per month bill in about half- i have unlimited everything plus insurance on a note II He told me to call cu stomer service and ask for the customer loyalty team--they have a great special to stop long time high value contract customers from jumping ship: $60 per moth for unlimited talk and text in the usa--no roaming. 2 gigs of 4 lte data and $10 for each extra gig without limit. i only go over 2 gigs per months on rare occasions when I have longer driving trip with google maps and pandora going for many hours or do a bunch of streaming without wifi. -i can continue to use teathering through a third party application. - extra charges including tax, verizon fees and my basic $5.18 monthly insurance is about $74 per month. a number of time per year, i'll buy a gig or 2 of data. Customer loyaly has a new deal and it looks like a good one. these falks have contact me to move to share everything plans--i give up unlimited data and they would give me a $100 month plan with 2 gigs or 4gigs for $110 or 6 gigs for $120 ----------------------- I am eligible for an upgrade subsidy. my new one year contract would start tomorrow. if I chose to up grade, then I will be obligated to extend my special LOYALY PROGRAM CONTRACT for two years from the upgrade date under this special rate plan. To me this makes more sense than moving to t-moble--they got me and i am giving up my unlimited data plan. ---------------------- Am I missing anything--with big red when it looks too good to be true is almost always has some non-obvious catch.
