Deal Details

Last Edited by dpham00 December 7, 2011 at 08:36 PM
For those who purchased a Verizon smartphone after the unlimited data ended, you can still get unlimited data by calling *611 and asking them to add unlimited MHS. A 4G phone is required. You may have to be persistent, and it may take several calls, but I was able to do it with one call. A "perk" of adding unlimited MHS is that you will be pushed to unlimited data as well, according to the rep I talked to. I checked online, and sure enough, my friend's account that I was trying it on had unlimited data and unlimited MHS. If at a future time, you feel you do not need MHS, you can cancel mhs (you can do it online) and it has been reported that you still keep unlimited data.

When i talked to the rep, at first, he was trying to get me to switch to a data plan that had data and mhs. This is not what you want, you want to have the mhs as a feature addon.

ymmv of course on these types of promos.

edit: mhs = mobile hot spot $30/mo addon feature. as said before, you can remove it any time and your unlimited data should remain.
The $30 is for the month, if, say you use it for 15 days, then it will be prorated to $15 and so on.

Edit looks like some are able to do it with 3G phones as well, unlimited data but 2gb mhs.

no, the charge is pro-rated, so it's about a buck a day. so cancel tomorrow, i think they consider that 2 days, or around $2.

I was thinking about posting this yesterday...

I just got a phone through Amazon Wireless and signed up for the $20 300mb data plan. On my Bionic's 'data usage' tracker it showed x/4gb as my data, and I wondered if somehow they had made an error in setting up my account. I called Amazon and then Verizon and I had indeed been put on the 4gb plan. I jokingly said I wished I could get unlimited for $20 and the lady said I could get it for $30. No hotspot mentioned. I haven't verified that this worked, but it does seem that there is a promotion going on.

I already have unlimited data but for those who don't I think spending the extra few bucks to add the MHS and cancel it to get the unlimited data afterwards is worth it.

I asked the VZ rep and she confirmed that it works with 3G phones as well. $20 for mhs + $29.99 for unlimited data. She also said that it is a promotional offer. So probably not just a 'ymmv'!

Don't be a d'bag. The unlimited plan will likely stay grandfathered, when he said "promotional" he meant that this was a limited time offer to get in on the deal.

Definitely going to try this for my iPhone 4s! So it's $20 for the mobile hotspot and the $29.99 for the unlimited? What are you guys asking for when you call? Are you saying you heard about a promo or just calling to add the hotspot (and subsequently getting the unlimited data)?
