    Post 6/28 Single Tier Line 2GB $30.

    Running along side Shared Everything plans. I have heard individual single tier lines have a $30 option for 2gb of data. Is this true or false?

    The options should be the same as the existing tiers. 2GB for $30, 5GB for $50 and 10GB for $80.

    True, existing customers can choose either the new share everything plan or the existing single & family plans they have today. With data plans as they are today $30 for 2gb, the unlimited is gone.

    Existing customers can keep what they have now after the 28th, but if you want a subsidized phone, and order it on and after the 28th then you will not have your existing unlimited data option.

    All new customers are forced into the share everything.

    ok so how is a new individual customer supposed to pick one of the "shared" plans? Who are they sharing with?

    I think what people on all the message boards are forgetting is that these new plans are only for group plans with multiple lines. People on new or existing individual lines don't have anything to do with this stuff . Unless you count the fact they will will lose unlimited and have to go with a metered plan, but they are still individual lines and dont have to pick a shared plan.

    Single lines with unlimited may keep unlimited even when you upgrade.

    Your sharing devices.

    If I only had one line and one phone and wasn't going to add a ipad, or android tablet then I'd rock with a single plan without the share everything plan.

    This is the first time I've heard of the new plans saving someone money! As far as I can tell, Verizon is increasing the costs for everyone while taking away options.

    The old Individual plans still exist for new customers. They're just not really advertised on the main page. When you go to purchase new service, the Individual plan options appear.

    You sure about that? Going through to purchase even a basic phone only brings up the Share Everything options.

    Tried it earlier on a desktop. When going to the plans, after selecting a Galaxy SIII and saying I'm a new customer, I was given the option to select Share Everything or Individual.

    hmm..looks like they haven't fully updated the iconic portal. Selecting a galaxy sIII on the initial page and then selecting your device is the only way that shows the old individual plans. Also shows the old Nationwide family plan. Selecting any other device on the main product page seems to require a Share Everything plan.

    Going through today it looks like the $30/mo for 2GB smartphone plan is still there, with the same $40/mo base line fee that they have always had. So, unless there are changes coming AFTER today, it seems like the single line plans are all keeping the same pricing tiers they always had (since the end of unlimited and the end of the 4GB-for-2GB promo). When is USA Today going to issue a retraction for that steaming pile of **** about Verizon's new pricing that they called "news"?

    There are even news outlets still throwing out tripe like this (on a local tv news web site): "Verizon Wireless 'Share Everything' plan has begun: Customers on low-priced plans now paying more". WTF? Customers who are on low priced plans are paying the exact same thing they always paid since the new plan only affects NEW customers who come in and WANT the pricing scheme. I am not a Verizon fanboy or anything, but this is lying plain and simple. Verizon is even keeping the $40 for a dumbphone (under the share-everything plan).

    edit: corrected $40 plan info

    no one said the line based tiered data packages were going away. The only thing going away is unlimited data for those who upgrade their lines. The Share Everything plans are just an additional option for current customers.

    Pretty much everyone on the internet is having a migraine over this tidbit: "The cheapest possible "Share Everything" monthly bill for a Verizon Wireless smartphone customer will become $90". They are basing that on the notion that Share Everything is the only contract option, and single line tiered data won't be allowed after 6/28 so anyone who wants a smartphone, even for a single line, will have to pay $90 a month. But, it looks like that isn't the case (Verizon never asserted that it was the case, but they never asserted it *wasn't* so people assumed the worst and ran with it).

    For new customers it has been said that Share Everything is the only option so for 1GB of data, it'd cost $90. Cheapest is $80 for just one smartphone and 300MB of data. Oddly enough the iconic portal used for pre-orders still show the old individual and family nationwide plans. Verizon has said all along that current customers could keep their existing plan and just add a line based tiered data package if they upgrade a line with unlimited data. Most people just fail to read and would rather panic instead.

    I'm concerned that once the Galaxy SIII pre-order is over, the method to get the old Individual and Family plan options will be closed.

    It's pretty bizarre that they have it open for the preorder (even to new customers) amiright? If they really are switching to these new plans why not go all for it?
