I've got 2 lines on one account. We're sharing 1GB of data monthly and getting by, but I wouldn't mind the extra GB for $5 more a month. I'd switch to the new 2GB/$30 plan now, but my contract expires in a few months, and I think Verizon is ending iPhone subsidies.
So, which makes more sense:
1. Switch to the new rollover data plan now?
2. Wait for my contract to be up & get a new iPhone at the discounted price (they still discount it, right?)
It all depends on how you want to receive your discount.
If you wait until your contract is up and purchase a new phone under a 2 yr service contract, you will be paying $40/month for the line access fee for that line over the term of the contract AND will have received a $450 discount off of the full retail price of the phone after an up front cost of at least $200. If you purchase a new phone at full retail up front or on payments your line access fee will be $20 for that line on the new plan with no up front phone cost. Over the 2 yr length of a contract, that is a savings of $480.
You decide, save $450 purchasing a contract phone or save $480 purchasing a full retail cost phone. Keep in mind, once you switch to the new Verizon Plan you will no longer have the option to purchase a discounted price phone in exchange for signing a 2 yr service contract.
