    Default Verizon changes to unlimited data

    I guess I won't be waiting for an iPhone 5 whenever it comes out. Verizon is making changes to its data plans and making customers switch away from unlimited data if they upgrade their phone later this summer They probably don't want customers having unlimited 4G with an iPhone 5. They say you can keep unlimited data only if you pay full price for the phone which would be $650...too much for most people.

    I wish the 4S would have been a 4G phone. Apple is way behind on releasing one.

    I guess I'll be waiting a while to get the new iPhone. Craigslist should have them in a few months after release. Though, $1,000 bones for two iPhones is nuts. I will save my pennies this summer.

    I just don't have the time or energy to track data usage, which is why I have unlimited.

    Nobody wants to have to do this. Thing is if you don't have the time or energy to track data usage and aren't on an unlimited plan you need lots o' dough for the overages. No wonder these companies hate unlimited plans...

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but petitions, online or otherwise won't work. The only think these companies understand is dropping their service. Unfortunately, we're too busy being lemmings to do that. It's just the way things work.

    Exactly! This is a good opportunity for the #OccupyWallStreet crowd to do a sit-in at offices of wireless providers nationwide in protest of this.

    Vote with your feet. If I do get a new iPhone it will be through Sprint, who is the only carrier to offer unlimited data anymore. If and when I do that, I will say asta la vista to AT&T on every device I own.

    Well good thing I was going to buy full price anyway. I would rather spend a little more upfront and be able to keep unlimited data than save some on the phone but pay it over the contract and in terms of overages if I went over.
