    So this plan is not worth it for me. It's a tier device add on basically. No employment discounts can be applied to this data plan. For my phone and device (tablet) the data plan goes from 65 to 110.

    I have 6 lines. My break down was $110 line access and $20 per phone. Works for me. $230 per moth for unlimited data for 6 phones I'll take it. Also includes 10GB tethering per line. That is before taxes.

    Yeah the no employment discounts is a killer right there.. until those would apply I can't even think about switching to something like this.. but I have found with rollover.. I don't even use what I had.. and I held onto my 80.00 w/ discount unlimited data plan for a long long time (even after it was no longer offered).

    So, did the math on my plan. Right now, XL plan (16 GB) for two lines and an iPad, $132.80 ($82.80 for the data, $20 x 2 for phone lines, $10 for my iPad). Unlimited would be $160 per month, so since I never have overages, not a good deal for me.

    Now, if I was Blaine...

    I just went through the process to change from my 16gb family plan to the unlimited and my bill goes up about $10. I didn't complete the process as I want to read up on it to make sure I am not missing anything. We have not had any issues with going over between the 16gb plan and the 4gb bonus we get plus the carryover. I do monitor my kids pretty close though so it would be nice to not have to worry about them having a usage spike. I will have to read up and think about it. I don't know how much my personal habits would change. I am on wifi almost everywhere I go.

    Since I switched to auto pay, my bill remains exactly the same. Had I not switched to auto pay, it would have gone up $10.

    I didn't switch to autopay or anything, but my moms work discount makes this a $30 jump a month. I'm going to monitor for another month or so, watch the data usage. As much as my sister and parents burn through data...ugh. Having the work discount would make this a no decision switch.

    Thank you. I don't think I factored that in. Might not cost me anything then. I appreciate you pointing that out.

    You should call Verizon and see how it would be.

    Honestly to me this seems to only really benefit single plan accounts. Lol I have 5 lines and currently on the XXL plan with my 19% employee discount and 2gb promo per line per month. I'd lose the employee discount and promo data.

    I took my numbers are directly from Verizon's website, through their plan change system where it shows a summary of the current plan next to the summary of the plan changes and charges moving forward.

    I found out from my friend who is a rep and manager of a corporate store that you can still get the 15% military discount on the unlimited plans. I wish I had my military discount hooked up to my plan so I could get a better look at it.

    I have a 22% discount through work, it'd be hard to want to change it up, especially with rollover and bonus data I got for the Note 7 fiasco.

    Not going to work for me either. I have five lines and a tablet, we're on 10gb, with only $15 line access fee rather than 20. Without my discount my bill would go up $70/mo. Since we're all on Wifi most of the time we very rarely go over.

    Got a definite confirmation on the military discount. I'll see if that changes the pricing for me at all. I'll keep y'all posted.

    I have a corporate discount of 25% and when I was going to switch plans they made it clear to me that the discount wouldn't apply like post #101 shows in this thread.

    I'm wiling to bet they'll honor the military discount though.

    Yep! I changed my plan! My bill went up $1.00 after I applied my military discount and opted into Auto Pay

    How does the military discount work? Is it just on the $65 plan cost, or does it apply to the line fee, as well. From what I can see, the discount is between $10 and $13 per month, is that about right?

    The discount applies to the largest segment of whatever plan you're on. So she's getting the $65 plan for $50.70+ the line access fee.

    Edit: Actually the military discount plan is 15% so $55.25

    Yep. Unless I sign up for Auto Pay then it would be $50ish. I signed up for Auto Pay just now because I didn't know you could select what day you want them to take it. In the old days Auto Pay took it whenever they felt like it so I turned it off.

    I was more excited about Auto Pay then getting a new plan because it's one less worry.

    Unless there is no money in that account on the day they decide to take it. I don't like companies dipping into my account at their leisure.

    I don't grasp the concept of not having money in an account. Blows my mind.

    You get to choose the day it's paid. Make it the day after payday.
