Verizon Says No Data Rollover Programs In Its Future
Verizon Wireless will not follow AT&T and T-Mobile's data rollover programs with one of its own. "We're a leader, not a follower," said Verizon CFO Fran Shammo. AT&T and T-Mobile allow customers to roll unused data over to the next month. T-Mobile launched its program in December and AT&T followed it in early January. Shammo said Verizon understands that it will lose some customers over such features, but noted, "We did not go to places where we did not financially want to go to save a customer." Carriers often respond to pricing and service plan changes made by competitors.

U.S. Carriers Creating Stronger Tool to Verify Customer ID
All four major carriers in the U.S., AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, are building a "multi-factor authentication" method that will rely on peoples' cell phones to gain account access. The system, which has been in development since last September, is expected to launch before the end of the year.
There You Have It
And no, they're not leaders. They're the last company in the business to do any damn thing. If the T-Mobile and AT&T programs are successful for long enough, Verizon will introduce something similar, put some sort of restrictive twist on it, then claim that they were innovators.

You Get What You Pay For
I've had Sprint since 2003, and I stick with them for two reasons: price and roaming. Although their native footprint is similar to TMobile and not as large as AT&T, I can roam and receive the same basic coverage a Verizon customer gets, at a fraction of the price.
If I lived in a rural area, I'd be with big red, too.
Talk about sheeple.
If you don't come close to using all your data every month, you're paying too much for that data. Drop down a tier or two.
Even if you're on, say, a 10gb plan, and routinely use 6 of it, what is the point of having 14gb the following month? You only ever use 6 anyways. Still overpaying.
Likewise, if you use close to all your allotted data for the month, then you just need to bump up to the next tier.
Rolling over data is gimmick, regardless of the carrier. Furthermore, those carriers are probably going to charge extra for the rollover feature and cap the amount to can have banked to 5 or 10gb anyways.
