    But did you use an upgrade to get a subsidized Moto X or did you buy a no contract Moto X at the sale price?
    Purchased a no contract Moto X at the sale price.

    Ok, well you never lose unlimited data when you buy a no contract phone. It is only when you buy a phone on contract at the subsidized price that you are at risk of losing your unlimited data.

    The sale price is still full retail; it's just full retail on sale.

    I was able to keep unlimited data on my penny purchase of the phone on contract by using a upgrade eligible non smart phone. Did what Verizon and others suggested. Bought it against other line. Activated it against other line. Then 30 mins later deactivated it against that line and put the original non smart phone back. Then I took the X and moved to my primary line and was able to keep my unlimited data.

    I was able to keep unlimited data on my penny purchase of the phone on contract by using the number of a different upgrade eligible smart phone on my account when placing the order through Motomaker. When it arrived I called *611 and had them activate it on the number of the Bionic I was retiring instead of the number used during the order. When it was up and running (test call etc) I asked to confirm that Unlimited data was still in place on both numbers...it was.

    Since then I have been online in my VZW account and double-checked that all was well...it was/is.

    There's less than 2 hours left on the penny deal...hurry up!

    I realize many people are satisfied with Verizon and are happy to continue to with their unlimited plans. What I don't understand is that you are paying a premium price for the service. The plan price includes (hidden of course) the payback of the subsidy. Why not just go with a carrier that will give ample data and a much better price? I went with tmobile on their $30 plan. It is unlimited data up until 5 gb, then they throttle you. You also get Unlimited texting BUT only 100 minutes talk. To circumvent that I use a VoIP app for outgoing calls. I am SO pleased to have great service and only pay $30 per month. I was paying over $88 for Verizon (one line). I usually am either in South Florida or Metro NYC and service has been excellent.

    Some of us are grandfathered into better packages and prices.... It's not always better to jump from one provider to the next based only on sticker price. There are lots and lots of variables that cause people to stay or move.

    For some people, Verizon provides substantially better performance where they need it. Some also want the best total network coverage.

    In my case I have 5 lines of service with 2 smartphones including one with unlimited unthrottled 4GLTE and 3 dumb phones. I pay $140 per month on the 550 minute legacy family loyalty share plan. While the tmobile plan offers more, it is on stuff I don't need.


    Verizon
    $3,360.00 =$140.00/mox24(Monthly Fee for 5 lines for 24 months)
    $1,000.00 =$200.00X 5(Cost of Subsidized iPhones for 5 lines)
    $150.00=$30.00X 5(Cost of Upgrade fee for 5 lines)

    $4,510.00Verizon Total for 2 years with 5 phones

    T-Mobile
    $3,120.00 =$130.00/moX24(Monthly Fee for 5 lines for 24 months)
    $3,250.00 =$650.00X5(Cost of Unsubsidized iPhones for 5 lines)

    $6,370.00T-Mobile Total for 2 years with 5 phones

    I'll stick with tmobile for $720 for 2 years. I think my Moto X should give me 2 years of service.

    Sure, they tmobile $30 5gb plan is excellent, if it works for you. I was just explaining why I won't be moving to tmobile.

    I understand completely. Everyone has different priorities. Another important decision in choosing a carrier is their footprint in the area you'll be using the phone. I used to have a house in the Poconos and the only carrier that worked there was Nextel! My Verizon phone was non functional. This was about 8 years ago.

    I am on Verizon because it works in my area. I get 4GLTE where I live with Verizon. My friend has T-Mobile and he can't buy a signal and we live in the same area. Unlimited unthrottled data is great. I live in a town of around 10,000 people and T-Mobile can't even get EDGE here. It's all about the coverage. Once T-Mobile steps their coverage up then I'd consider giving up my data. If and only if...

    I seriously doubt they will invest in the infrastructure due to the low population. Tmobile is great in highly populated areas. Verizon has the best coverage overall and that's why you pay top dollar for their coverage.
