I signed up again with a Droid Razr and then again last October with the Note 3.
Anyhow, I'm amazed at easy it is to get into double digits on data. I rarely spend more than 30 minutes streaming YouTube or NetFlix yet I regularly go over 20GBs. I might stream 30 minutes of XM a day but never like a whole day thing either. There's no possible way I would go with a limited plan even if I had to buy a new phone outright at full retail every 12 months.
The other day at the mall I stopped by the T-mobil booth and they're offering basically my same plan with unlimited data for the same price, more or less $90 a month. Except with T-mobil you don't have to pay for the whole phone up front like Verizon, you can pay over time, a nice convenience. Sure LTE is great but even living near a major U.S. city my coverage is still spotty after nearly four years of using one LTE phone or another. I rarely get full strength LTE connection. On my commutte every day I run into the same dead spot so I have to switch over to pre-loaded content.
Has anyone dumped their Verizon's unlimited for T-mobil? Or are most here just waiting it out?
I live in the middle of nowhere and verizon coverage can't be beat.
Sounds like you have something "hidden" using your data, might explain for poor bandwidth complaint as well. I stream over an hour of Padora every day. Have multiple feeds and other apps updating every 15 minutes, game online,
regularly download 1gb+ ROM images, and have my game apps set to autoupdate over lte, and the most I've done is 12gb. That said I agree They will have pry unlimited from my hands before I give it up. I just played the upgrade transfer and SIM swap game to use my upgrade to get the note 3 and keep unlimited.
