Following its rivals, Verizon brings more data to More Everything plans

Following the lead of AT&T and Sprint, Verizon Wireless will now be giving subscribers of its More Everything plans even more data, though you'll have to sign up this month to qualify. More data begins with the 12 GB plan, which will now net you a 15 GB data bucket each month, and goes all the way up to the 50 GB data plan, which through the promotion will double your data to a whopping 100 GB to consume. That's a lot of Netflix streaming to consume each month!

If you happen to be looking for a new smartphone plan and don't need a lot of data and only have one line to worry about, Verizon has now dropped a new plan that might be of interest to you.

Verizon to crack down on heaviest users of unlimited data

If you've managed to stay on an unlimited data plan on Verizon, you might soon notice that your speeds beginning to slow down if you're using a lot of data. A limited set of customers will fall under the umbrella of Verizon's so-called "Network Optimization" policy, which Verizon says is not throttling. The shift impacts customers in a very specific set of circumstances, according to Verizon:

Verizon BlackBerry Q10

Verizon's first quarter results are in, and mirroring rival AT&T, they saw some rather impressive growth. Verizon as a whole saw $30 billion in revenue, but even with their substantial non-cellular businesses, Verizon Wireless accounted for a whopping $20.9 billion of that income. That's an increase of nearly 7% from this quarter last year, though growth through their retail outlets was slightly lower.

Verizon to give discounts to customers with off-contract phones

Verizon is finally going to give you a discount for off-contract phones. Starting April 17th, customers of Big Red are going to be able to bring their own off-contract devices onto shared MORE Everything plans at a discount. No longer will they have to pay a subsidy fee for a subsidy they're not using. Plans at or under 8GB will see a smartphone add-on reduction of $10 (bringing the fee to $30/month), while those with data allotments of 10GB or higher will see their fee sliced from $40 down to $25 per smartphone.

Mar 03, 2014 Verizon's new ALLSET pre-paid plans offer unlimited calls, texts, and 500MB data for $45/month
63 Comments
Peek

Verizon

Pre-paid plans are becoming a more-and-more viable option these days, especially if carriers continue to make improvements like Verizon has just done with the introduction of their new "ALLSET PLANS" (no more all-caps from here on out, mkay). These new plans start at $35-a-month for basic phones, but if you're smart and opt for a smartphone, it starts at a mere $45-a-month.

That low Allset plan price includes unlimited 'Anytime Minutes' calls and unlimited messaging (including international messaging to Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico). The base plan offers a measly 500MB data allotment each month, though thanks to the magic of pre-pay you can get more as you need it. An extra 500MB is $5, and that's good for 30 days, while you can get 1GB for $10 and 3GB for $20 — both with a 90-day expiration.

Verizon has a handful of smartphones available for purchase for use on the Allset plans, including the iPhone 4 for $99.99, iPhone 4s at $199.99, the Moto G for $99.99, and a few other low-end Android phones. If you have your own off-contract Verizon phone, you can bring it onto an Allset plan as well.

Oct 28, 2013 BlackBerry Z30 arriving exclusively at Verizon in November for $199

We've been speculating on a launch date for the BlackBerry Z30 at Verizon for a while now, and despite some leaked info, it appears that the latest BlackBerry will be landing in the US in November. 

Verizon dropped word on Twitter today that the Z30 will be coming in November but still no exact date -- so it does leave the gap open for the time being. The Z30 will run $199 on a two-year contract and is a Verizon exclusive. We're not sure if that's "exclusive forever" or just "exclusive for now" so we'll do some more digging.

I'm all about instant gratification. I'm a huge fan of overnight shipping on Amazon (I'm somewhat of an addict) and would love for it to be even faster some days, but I suppose that's asking for a lot. 

Verizon on the other hand is kicking things up in Philadelphia with a new pilot program to offer same-day delivery on all device orders. Customers in the area who order devices with or without accessories at verizonwireless.com will be eligible for same-day delivery in addition to standard and overnight options. Orders placed before 10am Monday through Friday will arrive the same day by 7pm at a fee of $19.99 - just $5 more than the priority overnight price of $14.99.

Aug 22, 2013 Verizon rolling out OS 10.1.0.4699 for the BlackBerry Q10

If you've been patiently waiting for Verizon to send out an update for your BlackBerry Q10 your wait may just be over. Several folks in the CrackBerry Forums have reported their device is getting an update notification for software version 10.1.0.4189 while the underlying OS version is 10.1.0.4699. The update comes in a variety of sizes thus far with the majority mostly showing up as being around 150MB.

Looking at the Verizon website doesn't tell us much about this update as there is no support info posted like their was for the BlackBerry Z10 but it should fall in line with most of what we've come to expect from the BlackBerry 10.1 MR1 update. Hopefully, it won't include the SMS bug that some folks reported previously. Are you seeing the update available? If so and you update, let us know in the comments how it goes.

If you don't mind two-year contracts and are looking to pick up a BlackBerry Z10, Best Buy and AT&T are your best bets right now in the US. Through the AT&T website and corporate stores you can now pick up a BlackBerry Z10 for $99.99 or less if you make of their ongoing trade-in offers, that's down from their original pricing of $199. 

Not good enough? Head on over to Best Buy where they've reduced the pricing even further. $49.99 will get you either an AT&T version or a Verizon version with the Verizon version coming in white or black. A lot of folks didn't like the Z10 pricing at launch, what about now?
