    VZWs new price announcement is misdirection (what other people are calling a 'scam' which isn't quite accurate but it shows they weren't fooled by the misdirection). They are keeping you focused on the top tier price reductions while they jack up prices on the mid to low tier plans with the data plan requirement.

    In other words, they are dropping prices on plan/phone combinations that 5% of people use, while increasing prices on plan/phone combinations that 55% of people use. (%s are for illustrative purposes only)

    You're under no obligation to get a phone that requires a data plan, but if you look at which phones do/don't require a data plan, the ones that don't are cardboard boring.
    Verizon is saying buy the phone with the features and pay for the plan.

    Buying a phone with the features and then blocking data access is similiar to buying a high performance car with a gas guzzler tax and to avoid paying the gas guzzler promising only to drive the car in a manner that elicits highest gas mileage and minimum pollution.
