    I know that front-end VZ employees "can't" override the data limit or provide any extra discount because they can't override codes in the system. But realistically, has this been done for a few select customers? I'd like to hear from VZ employees.

    I'm looking to get a Bb and data is capped at 2GB, which is not much by today's standards. I can qualify for a 10% discount through work, but I wonder if VZ can make a deal and give me an extra $10-20/mo off since I'll have a family plan with 4 lines.

    Data is not 'capped', you can always purchase more based on your needs. The 5GB data plan is $50 and the 10GB plan is $80 (not including your 10% discount).

    Good luck.

    My concern is with smartphones nowadays, there's always data transmistted back and forth. Even if you're not using anything, there's still data flowing into and out of your device. My friend has a smartphone and she never surfs the web, yet she told me they said her data usage for the month was 74mb, for doing nothing.

    Then there is me with a 15.00 a month 150mb plan. I just use wifi!

    Data is not capped, you could either pay for more or pay overages. And they don't do special deals beyond employer discounts or promos offered to the public, definitely nothing on a single account. There's people and businesses with more lines than you and they have to pay like everyone else.

    Looks like AT&T will be sharing everything but it looks like their share plans might be more nticing, where vzw charges a flat $40 per smartphone, Big Blue is gonna charge less if you get a higher data plan....hmmmmmm

    There is no data cap because Verizon will charge you when go over your data plan. Blackberry is a miser with data usage compared to the other systems. Verizon has very good service but they demand a premium price. If you need that level of service, then Verizon will deliver and you will pay a high price. I have a grandfathered family plan (700 minutes & 5GB unlimited/line) with the government employee discount, which costs about $220/mo. Based on our usage pattern (between the 4 of us we use about 250 minutes and 2.5 GB/line data). So we're transitioning over to T-Mobile prepaid ($30 for 100 minutes + unlimited text + 5GB data for each line). With the wide availability of wifi & using VoIP, matched with our usage style we will save about $1000/year. In our area T-Mobile service works well, occasionally a dropped call. I have the only BB so it will cost an extra $10/mo.
