In some cases, it may be cheaper for you to purchase individual accounts than go with a Share Everything. For example, if Verizon is offering a double data promo for individual accounts ($30 for 4GB of data). If that time comes though, you will want to pull out the calculator and do the math to find your best option.

That's the important part of the article.

Still not much of a bargain if its true as it would mean I will be reduced to 2GB of data for the same price I pay now for unlimited. I wish they'd just put out a pricing structure for everything and get it done with. If they keep the $40 flat rate for unlimited talk and text as an indivdual option then it would be worth it. I thought this was all about simplifying their plan structure?

I think the unlimited talk and text is just wool to cover our eyes. I already have both with my unlimited data thanks to Google voice.. I'll never give up my unlimited.. never I say!

It seems to simplify things for VZW. $$$$
It still punishes the user that want's upgrade at a discount and keep unlimited.
If peak bandwidth is what's causing all the pain, why not offer OFF peak data rate?

There can't too much going on at 03:00.
Here at the RV park when all the "Visitors" go to bed I do all my downloads.
At 6:00 to 10:00 PM, forget it. I have to use my unlimited data plan.
I still use only 700 mb. a month.
When I was with QWest I got "Notified" when I got up to 12 GB. LOL

There is just NO excuse for gouging the end user to cover the perks that are being offered to the corporate world.

Unfortunately, I see that this might go the way of the Lexicon, They will support it "IF you can find one...Ha Ha.
I would love to have one If I didn't have to bow down so far and hop all the hoops.

I don't want to get too far off topic but part of my post deals with that as well. I personally don't get a warm and fuzzy with an upgrade before June 28th. I was eligible like Apr 3 or something but was really kinda eyeing this new Inc 4G.

I don't think the greedy sob's over at Verizon are stupid, I'm sure it comes down to they see a huge demand for data, surfing, whatever, and they want in on it. The date of release on this phone has been so stupidly silent, it's frustrating. My gut tells me that it's gonna get released about the 28th of June, coincidentally the same time as their stupid new plans, that we wanted so bad, (yea right). Which means guess what, you will be paying 4-6 franklins for this phone if you want your unlimited data unscathed.

I also gotta say for one, I remain skeptical on the posts of folks preordering the GSIII, and looking to return it so they can get a Inc 4G, I just don't see that Verizon would be that stupid to allow the flood gates open for unlimited data on the 21st or by a loophole preorder, to allow the very thing they want to squash. My guess is when those folks return those GSIII's they will be paying not only a restock fee but their contract date will roll forward, which means shared data or full price of phone.

Not looking to get flamed and I don't work for Verizon, and I really hope to hell I'm wrong, but I really think they are delaying this for more than Apples bs.

On a side note, I do have the orig Inc, with unlimited data, stbxw has a stupid phone, and I think she is wanting to get on of those lame iphones. My question is, I would like to get the inc 4G, and hopefully before the 28th. Am I in a time crunch here to get us off this shared family plan now?? I don't want to possibly end up getting the Inc 4g, and somehow keep my unlimited data, only to have a divorce final in 6 weeks, and walk into Verizon store and find my individual plan now will be a shared data or lose my unlimited data process. Anybody have any thoughts on this, just wondering if the pressure is on to get on individual plans now or before the 28th that is...

Appreciate it...

If you sell the GS3, you're not returning it. You can then purchase the Dinc4g off contract with the money you made off selling the Galaxy S3. I'm not going to go through all that hastle though. Today I'm preordering the GS3 so I can lock into my unlimited data and will cancel my preorder next week if the Dinc4G comes out (which I don't think it will). However if it does not come out next week, I'll stick with the GS3.

That's pretty much everyone's attitude by now, I think. God, Verizon knows how to flub a launch like no other. I'm still loyal to my intent to purchase this phone, but if I was HTC, I'd be fuming from the likely lost sales their silence on this phone has caused. The SGS3 has completely eclipsed the spotlight.

I agree completely. Unless I hate this phone after I get it, it will be the one I go with, but I really hope that dev support is not harmed by this crap.

The only reason I don't think the dev support will suffer too much is the price tag. If it indeed launches at $199 with a $50 rebate, the unsubsidized price can't be that high (I'd expect $550 at launch), so resale prices (eBay, etc.) won't be too high. Many current devs for the Incredible use other phones as daily drivers and just use the Inc as an experimental dev phone--I could see some SGS3 developers picking up an Inc 4G for that same purpose. Only problem with that is that the development will be slow and delayed, but that's alright with me. I'll be satisfied with ICS/Sense 4.0 until the next big thing comes out, which probably won't be for another year anyway. The dev support will suffer some, but I don't think it's going to be fatal.
