Lower pricing & let customers to keep unlimited data and phone upgrades!

Everyone today with a smartphone depends one the internet. Its everywhere we go. If you are a Verizon customer with the unlimited data plan, you are definitely aware of how valuable it is.

Today it was released that Verizon Wireless plans on rolling out new shared data plans on June 28th 2012, a move designed to force people off of there unlimited data plans and onto a more pricey more restricted data plan (links to pricing at bottom).

The prices for these new shared data plans are absolutely insane. For a single gigabyte of data (which we all know we can burn through in no time) is 50 dollars a month and if you want to add a phone to share that data its another 40 dollars on top of that. Almost 100 dollars a month just to share a single gigabyte of data with another phone. That also means its 50 dollars alone for just one phone and 1 gigabyte of data.... Its beyond insane. Verizon Communications CFO Fran Shammo was quoted saying "Everyone will be on data share," and continued to say how beneficial it is for them as a company.


Help me stand up to the masterful corporate greed that is Verizon Wireless and tell them to let us keep our unlimited data as we were promised. Don't force us to give up our upgrades just to try to save on the price of data. WE DON"T WANT YOUR FORCED SHARED DATA PLANS AND PRICING!

      I am 65, have one smart phone and use no more than 2GB per month. I am not willing to double my bill and have less, when I am single and have no one to "share" with.

      Less service for more money means less care about loyal customers. I have been with Verizonwireless 10+ years and feel they do not care if I stay or go.

      Forcing me to pay more for less! A smart phone needs data to work so how can you limit it. Apps constantly running In the background even after the task killer has killed it. Rip off!

      Pricing on new plans are ridiculous
