    Prob depends a lot on how much a person streams music/video. If you have access to wifi most of the time, you can prob save yourself a lot. How much is the grandfathered plan? Have you ever looked at your data usage to see how much you're actually using in a month?

    I don't really stream music/videos often (from time to time) but I try to connect to WiFi as much as I can..

    Of course I have looked into it Webby :)

    Plan ends on 15th of each month. I'm first in this list below and wife is 2nd. Then of course monthly total.

    September 2.92GB / 1.11GB = 4.03GB
    October 3.17GB / 1.23GB = 4.40GB
    November 2.50GB / 1.41GB = 3.91GB
    December 1.58GB / 1.19GB = 2.77GB

    My Line - $87.27
    Wife's Line - $79.86
    ----------------------
    $168.16/month

    I'm on Verizon's site looking at the "XL" plan (unlimited talk + text w/ 8GB + 2GB free (total of 10 GB) of data).

    $70 (plan) + $20 (device) + $20 (device) = $110 + taxes/fees/bullshit (so looking to be probably $130 range)

    So long story short... getting rid of Verizon's Unlimited Data plan we would be saving roughly $30/month. We wouldn't go over the 8GB (10GB with free) monthly.

    The 4 gig is $50. If you go over to 5 gigs on a month you pay a $15 fee. So $65 for 5 gigs essentially ( if you happen to go over). Seeing your useage that'd be prob the best option, unless you plan to start consuming more data.

    $50 (plan) + $20 (device) + $20 (device) = $90 + taxes/fees

    They say "$50/month for 4GB" but don't tell you they charge you $20 per device (basically per line). Not the cost of the phone (like Samsung S7)... It's cost to have a smartphone on the line (like even if you bring your own device)...

    :middlefinger: (need that gif lol)

    But still $20 less than the plan you're looking at if I understand it correctly

    I made the switch Friday evening to the new Verizon Unlimited Plan.

    I am saving $11.xx/month. Wife has been coming close to her 2GB/month limit so I figured it was time...

    @webby - it's actually a bit more savings than I originally had thought.

    $21.73/month is what we are saving. :thumbsup:

    3 days remaining on this cycle.

    Me: 8.45 GB used
    Wife: 4.43 GB used
    Total: 12.88 GB used so far.

    We were out of town and didn't have WiFi so we were using the **** out of our data. Wife watched some TV episodes at the airport. I played Moana (Netflix) for my buddy's kid while we were out there. :giggle:

    It actually sucks that Samsung will be very conservative with the battery size too because extra careful

    No I have not tried it again.

    Since the long text issue I have reset my phone back to factory since I was having issues with Amazon Video and Amazon Music apps. They are working again. I'll see if someone can send me a long text again.
