Let’s Set the Record Straight on New Verizon Pricing Plans

We announced our new simplified data choices and price plans a few days ago, and while there have been several stories that explain your options in depth, we know there is still some confusion. First, here’s an overview of the new Verizon pricing plans:

  • Small: $30/month for 1GB of shareable data
  • Medium: $45/month for 3GB of shareable data
  • Large: $60/month for 6GB of shareable data
  • X-Large: $80/month for 12GB of shareable data
  • XX-Large: $100 per month for 18GB of shareable data (limited time only)

Now let’s set the record straight on a few facts…that simply aren’t facts:

#1. Existing customers will not be able to stay on their current 2-year agreement/plan that allows for discounts on phones. FALSE

Existing customers who remain on MoreEverything plans can still purchase devices with a 2-year contract.

#2. Existing customers still under contract with two-year device plans cannot take advantage of the My Verizon Plans. FALSE

Any current customer (no matter if on month-to-month, two-year contract or device payment plan) may choose to move to the new Verizon Data Plan at any time, or stay on their current plan. If a customer has a current two-year agreement and moves over to the new plan, the line access charge will be $40 and not $20. Upon reaching their next upgrade eligibility date, that $40 line access charge will drop to $20 automatically.

#3. If a customer wants to add a new line, they cannot add it to the old plan because it must be activated on the new plan (no discounted devices). FALSE

If current customers want to add a new line to their account on the MoreEverything plan, they can. Our sole intention of this new pricing is to make data plans crystal clear – you know exactly what you’re paying for and how you’re saving. With these new options, choosing a wireless plan on the nation’s best 4G LTE network that matches your lifestyle is simple and straightforward.
