Verizon announced today its new Share Everything plans, which will surely be appreciated by at least some Verizon subscribers. As expected, the new plans can be bundled with all devices that support wireless data including “basic phones,” featurephones, smartphones, tablets, notebooks, netbooks, and others.
Starting with June 28, when the new plan will be available to Verizon subscribers, Share Everything plans will offer you unlimited voice minutes, unlimited SMS and MMS messaging and “a single data allowance for up to 10 Verizon Wireless devices,” with Mobile Hotspot support and 4G LTE connectivity being part of the deal. That means you can now purchase a single plan to cover your family’s entire voice, messages and data needs.
The most important component of the plan is shared data, as it will let you use the same Verizon plan with all your devices, instead of purchasing a different one for each new smartphone and/or tablet you add to your collection.
Unfortunately, any Verizon Share Everything plan comes with a data cap, and unlimited options are not available. Here’s what the new plans have to offer, when it comes to monthly data allowance:
- 1GB for $50
- 2GB for $60
- 4GB for $70
- 6GB for $80
- 8GB for $90
- 10GB for $100
- 2GB available for $10 (just before monthly data limit is reached)
- 1GB of extra data for $15 (charge automatically when going over the monthly limit)
Moreover, here’s the payment scheme for data-only plans – which apply to jetpacks, USBs, notebooks, netbooks and tablets:
- 4GB for $30
- 6GB for $40
- 8GB for $50
- 10GB for $60 p
If that sounds expensive, you’ll have to know that there are other monthly charges (monthly line access) that apply depending on the type of device you own:
- $40 – smartphones
- $30 – basic phones
- $20 – jetpacks / USBs / Notebooks / Netbooks
- $10 – tablets
Will you get a Share Everything plan with a new Android phone once it becomes available?
