    My bill went up by $19.80. The peace of mind was worth it to me. We typically end the bill cycle with no additional data leftover. And that is using my phone rather conservatively. So now I don't have to worry about what I do on my device. I can just USE it. So the extra cost was worth it for me.

    It's $65 for the voice/text/data plan alone. That doesn't count the $20 charge for having a phone line connected to it, which makes it $85 and then $80 of you choose AutoPay.
    Correct me if I'm wrong but don't you pay $20 for line access fee no matter which plan you choose?

    I jumped from 16GB to unlimited. Even with the loss of my company's discount, I am saving $12.90 a month. I tend to end up bumping up near 16 a month, and that usually includes me being extra careful in that last week. Now that I don't have to worry, I will be much happier.

    Wow this thread took off.

    I too looked at the U from Verizon. Currently I have the following

    400, Unlimited text, MMS and data for 49.99 per phone. But, I get an upgrade every 10 months. Even though it "seems" this is new plan is cheaper, the 10 month upgrade option is where it's at.

    I'm staying with my current plan.

    Yeah. That's why I'm saying it's $65 for the plan only.

    I hate that carriers price like this. It's misleading considering it's impossible to get the $65 price. Just state pricing including the first line for single plans ($85) and set the family pricing at a base that includes two phones ($150). Then go from there. Eliminate the confusion.

    I believe T-Mobile prices like that. I feel that's so much easier for the majority to understand.

    Is unlimited data worth the $30 extra?

    Apparently, T-Mobile will have a 2 unlimited lines for $100 special this weekend -- with the $100 being what you actually pay (all taxes and fees included in the price).

    I saw that. I really wish T Mobile service was better where I live. They are really competitive and you can't beat that price.

    My advice would be to call Verizon and discuss your plan. There's a lot of "depends" involved. So if you want to know how you would fare with unlimited, call Verizon.
    I never call Verizon... I always use their chat feature so I can have their misquotes of incorrect information in writing lol.

    3 of my 4 lines are now on the payment plan. None of that has changed. Only the shared data plan.

    Doesn't affect it. Verizon has been letting folks change up their plans for over a year now without penalty, and they now include the unlimited plan with it.

    As a matter of fact, they encourage changing up your plan at your convenience.

    Agree with what everyone else has said. I've got 4 devices on a device payment plan. None of that was affected. This was simply a change in plan.

    That's because you're logged in & clicked switch to a new plan. The system takes into account what you already have. If you just look at the prices for the plan without logging in, it shows you the full price because most users that don't have Verizon aren't familiar with the line charge.

    I'd go with unlimited, but I only use about 3-4GB/month. I use WiFi for streaming. I don't see any reason to spend more money/month than I already do on the 5GB plan.

    Is that 8 gb you have now shared? If I understand correctly that is $80/line.
