What the hell did you expect would happen??? This will be a MAJOR hit to Verizon if they decide to charge for usage and abandon unlimited data. posted on 23 Jul 2010, 06:20 0 2. adash13x (Posts: 20; Member since: 08 Apr 2010) i agree with you partner..... stupid CEOs! posted on 23 Jul 2010, 06:33 0 3. ilia1986 (unregistered) This kinda reminds you of some other carrier, now doesn't it? posted on 23 Jul 2010, 06:38 0 4. JeffdaBeat (unregistered) I think we have to admit that tiered pricing is in the future for all carriers. Verizon has been talking about it longer than AT&T which is why I was surprised when AT&T launched it first. Carriers are pushing their smartphones in advertisements more than they are their messaging phones or basic. So they shouldn't be … [Read more...] about Comments for : DROID X owners use 5 times more data; Verizon to begin tiered pricing?

They base it off of the top 3% of users data. I remember it used to be 26gb then 28 and now 30gb. So since mostly everyone on T-Mobile has unlimited data the number will keep going up as customer continue to use more data then befie. posted on 09 Mar 2017, 10:51 2 5.

Over the past decade, we've seen the continual evolution of smartphones. From their early days of being simple PDAs (personal digital assistants) that was dominated mostly by Windows Mobile and BlackBerry, through today where iPhones and Android devices are everywhere; it would seem like almost everyone is using a smartphone.But in order to make the most of of using a smartphone, it must be connected to a data network of some kind. Enter the wireless providers.The big four in the U.S. are AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile. Up until recently, customers have enjoyed unlimited data and no speed throttling, while being charged a fair-market price. The downside was that smartphones were still using the slower 3G networks. Not only that, but with an ever-increasing number of new smartphones being activated every month, the wireless providers started to get overwhelmed by data usage that would slow things down even more - or even cause data outages.So what's the solution? Most people … [Read more...] about Smartphones and Data Usage: A love story

BattleBrat (Posts: 1476; Member since: 26 Oct 2011) I have noticed that if I go over 1gb on Verizon and am late with a payment ( I have unlimited data), They will call me, they will text me, they will leave dead cats on my lawn, send me pictures of me sleeping, essentially go into total nazi mode. If I stay under 1gb, I can be 10 days late no calls no texts, no late fees WTF? posted on 16 Jan 2013, 10:02 5 15. quickweevil (Posts: 51; Member since: 21 Dec 2011) "Where's my money, man?!" - Stewie Griffin posted on 16 Jan 2013, 12:21 2 20.
