    (Laughing) as well as #smh!...Unlimited means without limits. VZW and others offered unlimited data plans to attract customers and it worked, and now they're doing everything in their power to move those attracted customers to a tiered plan of some sort. Now VZW is targeting customers who use an "unlimited" er um, "extraordinary amount of data". #smh

    Will be interesting to see what amount get categorized as "extraordinary".

    SMH! This is just greedy. Unfortunately, Verizon is king in my area from a coverage perspective. Otherwise I'd seriously considering leaving them.

    Better than what TMO does, they just cut your speed until you find other means of mobile data...

    Half the time I can hardly get a page to display on my TMO phone...

    I have T-Mobile unlimited and I do use a fair amount of data. I've never had that problem. They do throttle at 26 GB's though.

    I'm just waiting for an unhappy customer that loses their "unlimited" data to sue Verizon.
