    Default Verizon Max Plan

    According to some leaked leaked information posted at Droid-Life, the Verizon Max plan is designed specifically to tempt unlimited data customers into Edge. They're offering a one-time upgrade with exclusive data tiers at significant discounts to what new and recurring customers pay. $30 a month will get you 6GB of data, and $50 a month will get you 8GB plus the right to use tethering for other devices. Sharing plans are not an option with Verizon Max: it can only be applied to one line at a time.

    I mean, not to defend them but those are good prices. That said, I'm glad I'm now an AT&T customer.

    They are getting closer to getting my attention, when they offer unlimited users in family plans with similar discounts on shared data, that could get me. 40 gb for the price of 20 would catch my eye.

    Data is a line level feature in family share plan. If you want data as an account level feature (for data sharing), you would have to be on a share everything plan

    But the point is that you aren't saving any money. Right now, the only people that can use the plan are those on the unlimited data plan, who are paying $30 per month already. So basically, for the same amount of money, you are losing unlimited data... Doesn't make much sense, unless getting on edge is that important to you. Also, keep in mind, for those getting corporate discount, the unlimited data plan gets the discount, $30 tiered data does not. So you are paying more to move from unlimited to tiered data.

    Just to clarify the only account level feature on my bill is the account monthly charge. All the other charges are line level charges.

    Note the $12.45 charge is the dumb phone line charge of $9.99 plus taxes and fees.

    Good I guess. I like my 70 a month all unlimited personally. I'm sure unlimited Verizon don't paying the Little extra to have fully unlimited .

    I don't need unlimited everything, just unlimited data is good enough. I pay about $45 for my unlimited line's share of my family plan. Granted, my plan is a legacy plan, as is everyone else who has unlimited data on Verizon. Current plans would cost me way more

    Yup, that's what would happen to me if I went with this Max plan; lose unlimited data and my 20% employee discount. Makes no sense. Regardless, I'm not voluntarily giving up unlimited data for anything! They'll have to take it from me.

    I have to wonder though, if the rumors of Verizon getting rid of unlimited data next year are true, why even bother making this Max plan?

    Of course, the edge plan isn't very financially beneficial to the customer to begin with anyway, but I just don't see why they would even bother with this plan being that the vast majority of those on unlimited are either holding it with a death grip like you and me or are willing to give it up for subsidized phones.

    Anyone on the $9.99 unlimited plan would be an ***** to get rid of it for any reason, imo. I wished that I could get it, but couldn't back when it was available

    I figure it's just another attempt by Verizon to lure more users off of grandfathered unlimited data (and it'll work for a certain percentage). That way, they can slowly chip away at reducing those with unlimited data without any serious blow back (versus attempting to just kill it outright).

    I was lucky to get it the first time I called. I passed the details of the offer to all my friends and family and all got it eventually. One coworker called half a dozen times and couldn't get it. He gave me his details and I called and got it for him. It is/was a hell of a deal. I love the look on the rep's face in the store when the try to sell me on the Share Everything Plan (SEP) and see that I have that I am paying $20 for 2 unlimited data lines.

    There is no way that they can beat it with existing plan offers, unless I could move everyone else to SEP and I go to this new thing... guess I will have to ask.

    I have 6 devices
    Razr Maxx HD - mine with unlimited
    iPhone5 - wife's with unlimited but she hasn't gone past 2GB hardly ever
    Razr M - mom's with 2GB and she hasn't gone past 2GB hardly ever
    Xoom Tablet - mom's with 2GB and she gets close most months
    2 feature phones for my 2 10 year olds - I use these for upgrades to keep the unlimited data on the other 2 lines

    Is the $110 you are paying for a single line?

    If they were serious about providing an alternate to unlimited data, then they would provide it on subsidized pricing, because with Edge, you are not using your subsidy.

    Also, the Max won't even give me 1% of my peak data usage.

    It's a trap!!!!

    I did some quick calculations and it's only a $5 savings per month over a similar share your wallet plan over 2 years if you take phone costs into account.

    I have unlimited data plan on Verizon and have not seen anything about the Max plan on Verizon's website. I am wondering if someone is trying to scam Droid-life or whether Verizon decided not to go through with the Max plan due to the leaks and adverse reactions.

    Here is my usage
    I'm on that too and its a major reason why I am hanging onto it for as long as possible. That promotion is so awesome.

    $96 a month for 900 Minutes, unlimited web and text, TEC Insurance. After taxes of course. Awesome.

    I remember everyone claimed they received the flier in their email just to get this discount. I called Verizon and told them straight that I saw the flier online but I didn't receive it personally. She looked into it and said she appreciated my honesty and applied it to my account. Apparently so many people were lying through their teeth that they were getting denied but she liked my honesty.

    Those prices and data allowances are acceptable. I would switch if I ever had to with those as long as it was permanent. This 2 GB for $30 nonsense is ridiculous and overpriced. 8 GB plus Hotspot for $50? Good deal.

    You're forgetting that over the course of the edge plan the full retail cost for the phone is required vs on the 2gb for 30$ plan you get a significant subsidy. Really this max plan more closely aligns with the equivalent share plan on contact than anything else.

    I see some of your bills and it pits my $160/mo to shame. Insurance, unlimited data and voice, and tethering. It helps a little that my employer pays my entire bill (including a jetpack and ipad)

    No it is real, call Verizon and ask about it. Most Will have to look it up as it is new, but they find it and it is real.

    I stopped into a VZW store this morning, on my way to work, to buy a DROID maxx. The rep done asked which new plan I was getting today........ I said neither I'm paying retail for it. Then he goes into "car salesman" mode n tries a hard sell on the plans. I listened but it all sounded like.... Whomp whomp.... Whomp whomp whomp Lmao.

    So after his sales pitch I said ok can I have the phone now. He again asked..... What plan was I going with Smh.

    I said in the most calm n polite voice..... Neither.... Sir. I would just like to buy the phone n be on my way if u don't mind..... Sir.

    Then he proceeded to go to the back n came back n said "oh we can not sell u the phone without u getting one of the new plans".

    I responded politely ok. His eyes lit up cus he thought I was gonna change my plan. I grabbed my bag n said have a good day..... Sir. He just looked at me n rolled his eyes lol.

    I'm going to file a complaint with the BBC later after my meeting.

    My thing is who would willingly give up their unlimited for one of these new plans?
