This piece of news may not be a welcome one for those still currently subscribing to one of Verizon Wireless’ old unlimited data plans -- the Big Red has revealed that it intends to request subscribers who consume over 200 gigabytes of data per month to switch to any one of the mobile operator’s metered data plans by February 16th of this year. For those not keen on honoring this request, Verizon will proceed to disconnecting them from its network completely.
There is good news and bad news from Verizon Wireless. The Big Red has finally chosen to eliminate two year service agreements, but alas -- the number one wireless carrier in the United States has also decided to increase the pricing on all activation and upgrade fees. Verizon Wireless has already implemented these changes for both current and new subscribers on all postpaid plans as well as prepaid options.

The biggest wireless carrier in America is going to brick its Galaxy Note 7 devices after all, but only after the busy holiday season.

The world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices is planning to roll out a new software update that should brick every Galaxy Note 7 phablet that has not yet been returned. Specifically, Samsung’s software update will prevent all remaining units out there from charging, and will also take away their ability to function as smartphones.

In order to be more competitive in terms of prepaid, Verizon Wireless is looking to add a pair of new options to its prepaid plans. Specifically, the Big Red is planning to launch a 5 gigabyte prepaid plan as well as a 10 gigabyte prepaid plan. Both plans will be made available beginning on November 13th, with prices at $50 and $70, respectively. The new plans typically share the same inclusions as Verizon’s existing prepaid plans, with the 10 gigabyte prepaid plan coming with unlimited voice calls to Canada and Mexico.
The undisputed leaders of the wireless industry in the United States have been busy making changes to their prepaid plans recently, but in totally contrasting manners.
