Costing WHO money?

If someone with unlimited data uses less than 2GB/month and does not want to pay full retail for a phone, how is it costing them money to switch? It seems to me it cost them LESS money to switch to 2GB tiered data than to stick with unlimited data.

What I'm advising is that they look at there account and see their usage. If they are not using enough to justify the unlimited than it makes no difference to be on an unlimited or a tiered. Just an FYI only 4% of the population uses enough data to justify having unlimited. 96% only use 2gb. So why hold on to something your not utilizing and is costing you more money?

Why make me lose it if its giving them money? See I can do it to....but my arguement raises eyebrows, yours just sounds like someone forcing people to do something they do not want to even if it is costing them money.

If you want the iPhone 5 switch to a share plan. If you know you use less then 2 gigs then WHO CARES if you have unlimited!!!? I think the share plan is better anyway because you get unlimited everything else and also get to tether without an extra charge... oh and add your iPad for $10. Love it!

george00. Before you switch I highly suggest you do a lot of research about Sprint, so you are not stuck with a 2yr contract and a service that is not what they said it was. They have a lot of fine print clauses that state that they reserve the right to slow down the data speeds.

Verizon will either 'see the light' or not about their very unfair decision to take away our unlimited data plan in order to upgrade to the new iPhone 5 or they will continue with an attitude of not caring about their long term customers.

Someone(s) at Verizon is out of touch with what is best for the company's future. 

Verizon will have thousands of us look to their competition now.

They have the right to do this and we have the choice NOT to go along with it.

Who knows, maybe some bright Verizon employee will have the guts to tell the 'big bosses' they made a stupid decision.

I encourage other verizon customers to speak up now.

Nothing to do with the iPhone, been like this since June and has impacted some major Android phones.

Oh, it's just possible that they might have modelled this, the sustainability of keeping unlimited plans on expected available spectrum, revenue from overage charges etc vs defections to other carriers.  Of course, few places to go as AT&T won't offer unlimited to new customers (although keeping it for existing ones).  Now yes, their model might be wrong and they may have to change, but no reason to assume that you are right.
