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.

Samsung has revealed new details of its Galaxy Z Fold2 foldable phone, the successor to last year's pioneering Galaxy Fold. While Samsung has improved or refined most aspects of the design — including the hinge — the much larger outer display stands out, having grown from 4.6 to 6.2 inches, and now protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.

Microsoft is finally ready to launch the unique, dual-screen Surface Duo device it first revealed almost a year ago. The Android 10 device has two 5.6-inch OLED displays, joined by a narrow 360º hinge, which can work together as one 8.1-inch display.
Samsung has a new, more affordable Galaxy S20 phone that starts at $699 while keeping the S20 specs and features that Samsung says surveyed users cared about most. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (abbreviated "FE") keeps flagship-level specs in some areas, such as Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 865 chipset, large (6.5") AMOLED display with 120 Hz refresh, 25W wired charging, 15W wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, LPDDR5 RAM, DeX, memory card slot, IP68 dust and water rating, and a metal frame.

Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile have officially launched ZenKey, a new way quickly log in to apps that leverages the authentication that happens automatically every time your phone connects to the cellular network. Apps must be updated to support ZenKey, and developers have the option of enabling ZenKey as the primary login, or as the second token in two-factor logins, replacing PIN codes sent my text message, for example.
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.
What Verizon should do instead is just alter their...
If enough customers left, they'd change their tune.
It's not going to happen.
If anything they will gain customers. "Who needs dumb gimmicks?"... I can already hear the commercials.

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.
