    Personally, the reduction in smartphone line access charge requiring edge is a deal breaker since you must buy full priced phones from Verizon and always must be on edge.


    Att msv is way better because you can byod, and no requirement to buy full priced phone from them.


    I think that this is a marketing tactic to say the have the plan

    You are talking about the AT&T plans that you see in the new commercials with the Verizon employees asking questions? You may want to read about those plans if so, because they are actually set up similar, and Verizon throws in a few perks.

    You can disagree all you want, but the facts are what the facts are. Consumers respond to convoluted pricing especially when pitched to them in high pressure sales situations, which is why the Verizon reps are on commission. When JC Penny got rid of convoluted pricing, their revenue went down. And when they brought it back, their revenue went up. That is just one example.

    You are giving the average joe too much credit. JC Penny made that mistake, too. Now they know better.
    AT&T reps work on commission as well...

    I think that is true of all the cell phone companies.

    Even tmobile has had deceptive practices at the time when they rolled out their simple choice plan, to the point that they were sued by a state attorney general, and had to agree to modify their practices.

    Well, I would venture to say that T-Mobile's verbiage is even worse than Verizon since they throttle data, but whatever haha

    I assume my dads new plan has been active for a while now but he was paying $50 for 450 Minutes + 1000 texts in his basic phone. I noticed Verizon had a Share Plan for one line that included Unlimited Minutes & Text + 250 MB of Data for $45.

    Great deal if you ask me. The More Plans in general look great but still with a single line and Unlimited Data my best bets are either keep my plan or sign up for the Loyalty Plan.
