Title: Share Everything
Post by: Mac on June 12, 2012, 09:35:53 am
Oh, this does not sound good for me...
I hate everything about cell phones now and this is looking less appealing for folks that just want a phone on occasion to talk.

Verizon to ditch phone plans, go with shared plans (http://www.gadgetbox.msnbc.msn.com/technology/gadgetbox/verizon-ditch-phone-plans-go-shared-plans-824652)

Quote
Verizon Wireless, the nation's largest cellphone company, is dropping nearly all of its phone plans in favor of pricing schemes that allow consumers to share data usage among up to ten phones and other devices.

The new plans will let individuals add non-phone devices like tablets and laptops to their plans, as well as the phones of family members.

The change takes effect June 28.

It's the biggest revamp in wireless pricing in years, and one that's likely to be copied by other carriers. AT&T Inc. has already said that it's looking at introducing shared-data plans soon.

Tell that to my wife and step-daughter. Good gawd, some of these people are quoting $180 to $240 a month bills. WTF?

Best decision I ever made was dumping Verizon after my contract was up. The money was ridiculous and I never liked being locked in for that long of a time. I really don't need a Cell since I work at home now. I can get in touch with people the old fashion way.....opening window, sticking head out and screaming at the top of my lungs.
