Verizon Testing the Unlimited Plan Waters in Gulf States

Article Comments  67  

Aug 3, 2010, 10:47 AM   by Philip Berne

Verizon Wireless is currently offering unlimited plans to select customers in Texas and Louisiana in a limited-time trial. The new service, dubbed Unlimited Any Mobile, lets users talk to any other mobile phone, regardless of carrier, without worrying about minutes. The service is similar to Sprint's Any Mobile, Anytime plan, which also offers unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling regardless of network. Verizon Wireless' plans offer unlimited mobile calling plus 450 or 900 minutes for $60 and $80 respectively, with similar family share plans starting at $100 for 700 minutes. The plans also offer unlimited text messaging. Eligible customers can subscribe to the new plan through October 31.

This has NOTHING to do with Sprint.

Having personally met with the "architect" of the plan and approval process to launch it was not aimed at Sprint. Verizon has bigger fish to fry.
Sounds to me like somebody is in denial...

I call BS, cause its funny that it was Lance Navarra and Audrey Lundy who created this and are leading this campaign and from Lance himself they saw how well this worked with sprint and they are following suit to create it for themselves. Doesn't mean...

Verizon is all on Sprints nuts!

An they don't even have the cojones to go full flegde like Sprint did and make the plans and coverage nationwide like Sprint did. Awww looks to me like Verizon is inferior to Sprint on this one! Cool
Ok... calm down.

they are TESTING the plan. Testing means that if it works, it goes nationwide.

And I highly doubt they lost a lot of people to sprint, considering that their post paid churn is down and sprint is still struggling to add post p...

Looks Like a sign of respect

Looks like Verizon is taking Sprint serious enough to copy its plans.... I don't mind it drives competitive pricing!
Calling plans have always offered too little for too much!!! And I hate text messaging with a passion!!! It is so, so informal, indirect form of communication, but sometimes its an option to save minutes.
...
Indeed, I think this is a sign that Sprint may be on the mend and giving Vzw/AT&T a run for their money.

Wait for Good Plan; Undercut It

So, instead of coming out with a good idea on their own, Verizon waited until another company did it, and then undercut all the plans by $10.00.

I think the cellphone manufacturer rules regarding lawsuits should apply here. Sprint thought of it first, Verizon is copying them, so Sprint should sue for millions with the intent of preventing Verizon from selling another cellphone plan in the US. That's the proper way to overeact, right?
No. The proper way is to match or beat Verizon's price and then make witty commercials about imitation being the most sincere form of flattery.
Not much undercutting really. vzw's plan only has talk and text while both of sprint's plans offer unlimited data with them as well..

Well it's a start...

but Whorizon is still Whorizon. Arrogant, pompous, controlling, overrated, overhyped and overpriced. No thanks. Love my Sprint and 4G. Still a better deal on the other side of the pond. Unlimited data can't be beat. Take your metered data and shove it up your arse Whorizon! Charging for LTE data Rolling Eyes F U!!
you do know that SPrint/clearwire are mulling limited data too right?

verizon already offers an unlimited plan...

What's the point of this? Cuz the author obviously missed IR or didn't forward it on correctly
You sir may want to delete your post... quickly Very Happy
There is a huge difference from their current unlimited plans and these.

I have 2 lines of service currently.
I would have to pay.
$149.99 Base Plan
$29.99*2 because 1 line is a DroidX and the other is a Droid.

So I am looking at $209.97 a...
