    That's when the tiered data kicks in, and according to HowardForums, it's not pretty...

    2GB $30/month
    5GB $50/month
    10GB $80/month

    Seriously... What is Verizon thinking, marketing these data hungry phones and then taking away unlimited and replacing it with low caps and high prices? This is customer abuse at its worst!

    If they really do go through with this, I'll happily return to VMUSA and select one of their new Android handsets to use. Would it be a step down from a Droid? Sure, but at least I wouldn't have to vet my data usage.

    Not sure, but multiple sites and boards are showing this, so it is true.

    If they do away with tethering fees this is fantastic news for me, 2G is a heavy month so it'll save me $20/month.

    Of course, this is all rumor no matter how often it's repeated until it shows up on a Verizon website.

    Looks like we'll all be grandfathered in for unlimited data. And if they try to take it away, threatening to leave for Sprint will probably work wonders.

    Grandfathered in, for now. Eventually, we'll be forced to tiered data. I'll go back to VMUSA before I'll put up with that crap.

    Looks like an old thread. As of September I still have my unlimited data, hope everyone else does as well.

    I do too. However, I'm afraid VZW might pull an AT&T and start throttling unlimited users who "abuse" their unlimited accounts.

    They are already throttling the top 10% of users. Still on an Alltel plan using 4Gb a month and haven't had a problem. As long as your not trying to over do it you'll be fine.

    What are most of those users doing anyway, streaming full-length movies on their phones? I just don't see the attraction of doing something like that. I'd rather watch a movie on my big TV screen in stereo than on a postage stamp-sized phone screen in mono.
