    Default Changes Coming to Verizon Plans Sept. 6th

    Found this article online, but basically as of September 6th Safety Mode will free on all sizes of Verizon plans. Originally it cost $5.00 for those who weren't on the XL and XXL plans.
    When Verizon first unveiled its revamped prices in July, several new features seemed really lame. The most egregious was the company's "Safety Mode," which was included only on its XL and XXL plans for free. Customers on other packages had to opt in and pay an extra $5 a month for the service, which gave you unlimited data at slower-than-LTE speeds after you exceeded your limit. But it looks like Verizon has wised up. A spokesperson for the carrier confirmed to us that, starting Sept 6, Safety Mode will be included for free on all sizes of the new Verizon Plan.
    Also a limited time plan of 12GB for $80 to nestle in between the $70 8GB plan and $90 16GB plan.
    The company is also introducing a new limited-time 12GB plan for $80, which sits between its existing 8GB and 16GB tiers that cost $70 and $90 respectively. In comparison, AT&T offers 10GB for $90 a month, and both providers impose an additional access charge of $20 per month. T-Mobile now only offers unlimited data for $70, while Sprint charges $60 a month for 12GB (with a $20-$45 access fee).

    I wish they had a more reasonable plan for me. On the grandfathered unlimited with unlimited hotspot and over $200/month

    Sometimes. Varies. Used 69gb last month. On track for about the same this month. Probably will continue to since I got IPad Pro. Hey, I pay for unlimited data, unlimited tethering/hotspot, and of course unlimited voice/text. Over $200/month(for a single line might I add). Have to get my monies worth.

    I typically use 20-25gb/month. One rep told me I wasn't using enough. Been streaming Hulu & Showtime lately & I'm interested to see what my data usage went to this month.

    Don't they charge extra to add wi-fi hotspot on? I had to use it a couple of times and they wanted to charge me $30/month for it.

    When I need to use it, i.e. Traveling & don't trust open wifi, I call & have it activated & then turn it back off when I return home. Cheap that way.

    A lot of websites are secure and apps are secure. I don't trust them too much either but I do use a VPN which makes it harder to see what your doing. I still don't do banking or any thing important like that. Just surfing the web usually or social media.
