Verizon Wireless has today released a PR clarifying their position on scraping of unlimited data plan. They have provided another way around where you will require pay full amount of the handset in advance with no terms attached. This will make you qualify for the offer however, paying full price of the device won’t be favorable for everyone.
This only means that Verizon doesn’t want customers to give an easy access to the 3G data unlimited plan, but thought of giving something. The recent move could be credited to yesterdays outrage of Verizon customers over social networks but this is far from a satisfactory explanation and Verizon is no mood to provide customer satisfaction. Below is the PR release and you can make out anything of it.
“As we have stated publicly, Verizon Wireless has been evaluating its pricing structure for some time. Customers have told us that they want to share data, similar to how they share minutes today. We are working on plans to provide customers with that option and will introduce new plans later this year.
When the new options are introduced, Unlimited Data will no longer be available to our customers purchasing handsets and signing a new contract. Customers who choose to purchase phones at full retail price and are currently on an unlimited smartphone data plan will be able to keep that plan. The same pricing and policies will apply to all 3G and 4GLTE smartphones.
We will share specific details of the plans well in advance of their introduction so customers will have time to evaluate the plans and make the best decisions for their wireless service. It is our goal and commitment to continue to provide customers with the same high value service they have come to expect from Verizon Wireless.”
