    Depends that perks you get with your original plan.

    How are you still getting 2 year subsidy? CRU account?

    Also dont forget the additional roaming / texting benefits on the new plan.

    Well AT&T responded but unfortunately they are the most expensive out of the Big 4 and they still restrict Hotspot usage. $100 a month for one line. $40 for each additional but you get a credit with 4 lines to make it $180 a month. If you're going to be the most expensive at least add tethering! I'm disappointed and will probably just keep my current plan. Baby steps progress. Directv isn't required anymore. Maybe they will add tethering eventually

    You're math is wrong. They aren't the most expensive for 4 lines in fact when you factor employer discount they are cheaper without the hotspot. If I switch from old to the new my plan for 4 lines will be $170 plus taxes, $188 with taxes vs $200 VZW with taxes.

    Yea no tethering but never had tethering with AT&T anyway. And if I want tethering I would want something better than 10GB then throttled anyway.

    Have you turned it on and used it though?

    It'll fall off once you try to use it. Every time it's used, it phones home to see if it's allowed.

    Technically yes but that is still to be determined. One of the main perks of the IUP program is to be able to freely switch between carriers but that is not possible with iPhone 7 if you got the intel chip. The IUP page says that you have to go to the store to make the switch so I am assuming it will be a refurb or something like that. The key is to not lose the ability to upgrade when the iPhone 8 comes out in the fall while making the switch.

    Reps at AT&T said existing customers are converting like crazy.

    So this plan seems sort of like a retention plan per se not to get more subs.

    I read on the Verizon forum that 600k was the minimum speed so maybe it might be a bit faster than that.

    Lol if this is true then they're going to bleed customers though. This a retention plan? Lmao for real. Not doubting you but that's some real PR spin there.

    I'm getting 600kbps on hotspot past 10GB. I'm only 2 days from my new cycle date so I went ahead and went over just to see. My typical hotspot usage has been 3-4GB.

    Does Verizon offer unlimited everything in Mexico and Canada like AT&T? That definitely an advantage!

    I said it seems like it's sort of a retention plan I didn't say it was. Existing customers are converting to the new plan like crazy. My take is it's not meant to get new subs but keep existing ones like myself.
