    Default will Verizon drop prices

    Since ATT dropped prices yesterday I wonder if Verizon will do the same. Will they if requested by customer or automatically raise amount if data to keep customers. I understand that Europe data planes and phones are less expensive than our plans and phones

    There's rumors that they have plans to but others are asking how long Verizon can hold out jumping into the price war.

    Not much incentive if they're still pulling in new users.

    Maybe I missed it but I just clicked over to the AT&T website and didn't see any pricing that impressed me.

    Depends on your needs. Plans with many lines utilizing at least 10gb byop are reasonably priced. In your case though, the $60 loyalty plan for your line and $45 plan for hubby on Verizon seems to be the best fit

    Depending on your needs, Verizon's current pricing may be cheaper than att new pricing.

    For me, neither the tmo note the att are any beget than what I'm paying for right now. I have 4 lines and 6 GB and pay $240. If I switch to tmo or any and factor in the cost of the phones I would have to purchase, the total would surpass my current bill

    AT&T's Regular Plans are the SAME AS VERIZON... However, Their plans are Cheaper if you use AT&T Next follow some other ways of staying WITHOUT getting a new phone with a discount.. you can get a cheaper plan

    It is mostly geared towards family plans, as the minimum single user plan that could take advantage of their new pricing is $115.

    I don't see any Verizon plans giving you 4 smart phones with 10 gigs of data for $160. There are ways to get your own equipment.

    Sounds like Verizon isn't going to "drop" prices - just give you more data at the current prices.

    It's the same thing only if you use the extra data they give you. Now having said that, if you are on the 500MB plan to begin with and won't use 1GB, then it doesn't help you.

    But if you are on the old 1GB plan and won't use the 2GB they give you, you can drop down to the new 1GB plan and get a price reduction. Same if you are on the old 2GB plan.

    Right but any of the ways that are legal and result in you getting a $700 brand new phone cost, well $700. If you factor that into the equation, you need a plan to be $30 less per month for it to be worth it. Now maybe you don't want a $700 brand new phone, but I do.

    Depends on your needs. But for those already on edge on a 10gb or higher plan, their monthly cost just dropped $20 per month per line.

    No, $20 per month per line.

    Now I won't trade my UDP line for Share Everything or Edge but if you are already on it, it is a nice bonus.

    Not only that but Verizon will allow those on contract before 11/13/13 to go on edge now. You can pick up a s3 mini for $250, after 13 months you would have made up $260,so the phone would be paid off. You can also sell it if desired.

    It might be a nice bonus to those who were duped into signing up for edge, but for most others, it's a shell game compared to the regular contract plans. the $20/month discount basically gets you about the same monthly as if you had signed up for a contract plan, depending on the phone you selected.

    For those who signed a contract near but before 11/13/13,you could get a free 4GLTE smartphone plus $230 over 2 years.

    So there's a way to get away with less of a fee to terminate service. I don't see how that really helps people unless they signed a contract close to the cutoff date and want to jump ship.

    Verizon may be trying to sell people on Edge but it's only because most consumers are worse off on it. For most scenarios, it's still cheaper to go with a contract plan, even if you terminate early. Take the example of a single line with an iPhone 5s on a 2GB data plan:

    On Contract: $200 up front for the phone, 35$ activation fee. 90$ Monthly. Total for 2 year contract: $2190. Total to terminate service: 350-10$*months of service
    New VZEdge on new More everything (more money for Verizon included) Ripoff: 0 Upfront for the phone, 0$ activation fee. 80$ Monthly for voice/text/data, 27/month for the phone payment. Total for 2 years: $2568. Total to terminate: 650-27*months of service

    The fact that a spreadsheet is required to compare these plans just within Verizon's plan offerings is ludicrious. Even with more everything, VZEdge is still a ripoff.

    As Droid3R said, smoke and mirrors. More everything just added some more smoke.

    Those currently on contract near the cut off date can save $230 over 2 years plus get a free 4GLTE smartphone.

    How does the math work out on that?

    Sure, assuming that you signed up recently but before 11/13/13, you would probably have about 21 months left on contract. When signing up for edge, your remaining contract is forgiven.

    Buy a s3 mini for $250 on edge, and your phone bill would decrease by a total of $480 over 2 years, $20/mo reduction assuming a minimum 10gb on MEP.

    $480-$250=$230

    So you would be saving $230 and getting a free s3 mini.
