[ZDNet] RIP unlimited data: Tiered data plans coming to Verizon July 7th - Page 9

post #81 of 169
Well, there goes my plan on upgrading to an iphone. I'd honestly be happy with no data plan, just using wifi for data. $30 for that little data is highway robbery. They should at least have a $10 plan (as is required for all of their "media" phones, pretty much all they offer any more) for those of us who couldn't give a rat's ass about watching movies on a 4" screen. I'm that much closer to going back to communicating with smoke signals.

I used straight talk for a while. Had a simple smartphone that cost $100. Spent $40 a month for unlimited talk/data/text. I admit the clarity wasn't the best when I was on the phone with friends, but you really cant beat the price. Web was slow too, but it worked. Battery would last me 2+ days on a single charge with heavy use.

Sucks, but I've only used 601mb of data usage this billing cycle, but not big on the more for less idea going on.

totally saw this coming. If ATT was capping their users' data, why wouldn't other companies do the same?

Unless you can't get reception in your area, why would anyone not be with them?

They are/have been cheaper than Verizon and ATT, and say they are sticking to unlimited.

This sounds like this disillusioned youth saying he doesn't want to be a part of the system, and the father says "okay so go live in the woods and hunt your own food." Well okay, you cancel your contract just to spite them, and then you have no data plan. Who has the last laugh? No one. That's who. Seriously though, I hate that you are REQUIRED to have a data plan, that pisses me off a LOT, and was one of the reasons it took me so long to get another smartphone after I sold my last iPhone and moved to Verizon.

But you can always cancel your contract and go to a company that has a better policy for all of the above.

It'd be more like a youth not liking a certain store, so the dad makes him drive to another one...
