Verizon Dropping Contracts, Subsidies, and Family Plans
On 13 August 2015, Verizon Wireless will radically change the way it sells mobile phones and cellular service. Contracts, subsidies, and family plans are being eliminated for anyone not on an existing contract. Instead, customers will pay the full price of their phones, with an installment plan available to spread out the cost. It will cost $30 per month for unlimited talk and text, plus 1 GB of data, with an additional $20 “access fee” for connecting a smartphone or $10 for a tablet. Other plans include 3 GB of data for $45, 6 GB for $60, and 12 GB for $80.
Is the Verizon &20 Access Fee a monthly fee in addition to the $30? If so, it'll be time to change carriers when I get my 6s. Y
Yes. However, I have a friend at Verizon who tells me that some of the details are different than what Verizon said here, so stay tuned.
I read $30 and thought "that's about what I pay for the same kind of deal in the UK" but then I read the additional $20 "access fee".
You guys are getting badly ripped off. :-(
If there's no subsidy then will we be getting an unlocked phone?
The Verizon iPhone 6 is already unlocked, as I understand it.
