After hinting that something more was coming, Verizon has now taken the wraps off its new Verizon “MORE Everything” plans, designed to replace its current Share Everything plans by bumping up the data and even reducing monthly fees for Edge customers. The latter of these aspects is probably the most significant change.
When Verizon first introduced its Edge early upgrade plan the company made it very clear that they had no intentions of lowering their pricing structure for customers that were paying full price for their devices. Many folks criticized this move, as it basically meant that users were paying both the full price for a device and the cost of a subsidized phone that is baked into standard contract pricing.
Verizon “MORE Everything” plans bring price cuts for Edge customers.
Apparently Verizon is now seeing enough pressure from T-Mobile and its other competitors that they feel the need to change stance. Under the new More Everything plan you will get a $10 discount if your data plan has 8GB or less, or a $20 break for 10GB share plans. Of course these discounts aren’t nearly as steep as the ones you get with T-Mobile, but it’s better than nothing.
Other than introducing Edge discounts, More Everything also lowers some of the plans pricing by $5-10 and doubles the data on its 500MB and 1GB plans. Finally, the only other changes with Everything More is that it introduces unlimited texting to anywhere in the world (as long as you are in the U.S.) and it gives you 25GB of Verizon Cloud Storage.

So are these changes worth it? If you’re an existing Verizon customer, then sure, these are a welcome (if not massive) changes. We doubt that these minor changes will be enough to attract new customers, however.
What do you think of the new More Everything plan? Glad to see Verizon finally reducing plan pricing for Edge customers? Is the discount enough? Let us know what you think in the comments.
