Verizon will be cutting of all their customers from having Unlimited Data Plans, even if you were grandfathered in.

Verizon has gotten greedy!
Shame on you Shammo! (Fran Shammo Verizon's CFO)


We need to take action! We've done it before we can do it again.

Here is the score:

Won
Verizon Imposes $2 Credit Card processing fee. 50,000 people signed petition on change.org Verizon nixed that plan.

Lost
Verizon Imposes $30 "upgrade fee" for upgrading to a new phone
Verizon has stuck with that plan.

Score Thus far 1:1

Next line up,

Verizon will cut off all existing unlimited data customers from their Unlimited Data plans.
Lets make this a win! Sign the petition and share with everyone you know! Repost this everywhere! Let's get the word out!

What is actually wrong with them doing this? You sign a contract for two years for unlimited data yea. Then after the two years are up they are not contractually obliged to let you keep it. They have so far as a gesture of good will. Obviously they are being greedy but they aren't doing anything wrong, unless they stop you having unlimited mid contract. If that's the case you would be able to cancel as they have not lived up to there end.

I'm actually kinda excited to try sprint. I don't use much data I'm on wifi a lot but its crazy to pay $30 a month for internet on a little phone when I pay less for cable internet.

If it limited it better be cheaper if not I'll get sprint or maybe att

Since what breach of contract? A CFO saying stuff in an article about the future of VZW data plans is perfectly legally.

Signing the petition with your wallets at another carrier will do more harm than letting vzw know you don't like their business model. But the other carriers business models are the same. The big dent is made by dropping data on your service and letting sales reps and tech support know you won't get data back until the data portion of the business model changes.

...of the people, by the people, for the people...
