All four "major" carriers have the same phone line ups for argument sake. Little things like some carriers have a phone built to theory specs and Tmo is lacking the iPhone but other than that, its a pretty level playing field on device offerings.

So, what is the game changer here, DATA

The availibility and the bottom line cost.

I am sure VZW is poised to position this as, "you really don't need as much data as you think you might if you utilize you home WiFi netowrk and publicly available hot spots".

I am not one to try to "power a households needs off my smartphone" but I use things like navigation, streaming internet radio, and streaming video on top of reading news and pulling emails while completely out of reach of my hom...

That was very well thought out and put together. I have to agree completely.

For the most part I agree with you, but there are a few areas that I don't.

I do think that Verizon needs to have a couple of higher tiers for this structure. Maybe 15GB and 20GB? This would help accomodate both power users that use a lot of bandwidth and people who actually have all 10 allowed lines (even at 20GB for the plan that would only be 2GB per line.) I also think that basic phones should be more than $10 less than smart phones, I think $20 seems fair to me for a basic phone.

2. I get what you are saying about T-Mobile not letting you pay an overage to use m...

While the news articles may not make it very clear, these plans go up to 30GB of shared data.
And if you notice you've gone over your data BEFORE the bill cycles, you can change your data allowance through Verizon and back date it to cover your current month's usage. This won't extend your contract. You only get charged overage if you don't deal with it before the bill cycles.
