If you are on the Verizon More Everything plan, be aware they have removed the Month to Month (M2M) $25 discount. If you currently have it, you are good, but they won't add it to any lines going forward. This means you can't just bring your own phone to the plan and get the $25 discount. If you are on the DPP, once you pay off the phone, you will lose the $25 DPP discount.

If you currently have a phone with the M2M and you change phones, you may lose your discount, ie changing to a phone with a different SIM card size. If you just swaps SIM cards, you should be OK, but if you have to go through Verizon website, it will remove the M2M discount during the change. This happened to me..and only after escalating the issue did they reapply the discount, but YMMV.

This could negatively impact people who say purchased an iphone 6 just two years ago, who may be perfectly happy with the phone. You're thinking, sweet, soon this phone will be paid off and my bill will go down. Sorry, your phone will be paid off, but your discount will go away. Your options are to buy another phone on the DPP or change to the New Verizon plan.

If anyone has ideas..please share.

This is not a thread to discuss changing to another carrier, we know Verizon Corp sucks, but their coverage is better than most...in certain areas.

I have 3 phones paid off on M2M and I see no changes of this sort.

When did you pay off your phones? This went into affect at the end of May.

My source is the reps on the phones. Verizon doesn't post these details because it's just going to piss people off. And the fact that when I tried to change my son's phone, using the verizon portal, it was showing the discount no longer available. He was changing between a micro-sim based phone to a nano-sim based phone. I've heard you can cut the sim down to size, but we didn't try that.

I paid the 3 phones off in December with that Apple Pay Discover double cash back promo. I have one phone still on DPP because they wouldn't let me use Apple Pay due it being over $500 or something like that.

I'm surprised not more people have reported this if this happened back in May.

Er, that's not how contracts work. They have to disclose changes to contracts like that.

Not sure why. I have had a couple of long conversations with verizon reps and have been getting more details and decided to share.

Well, I wouldn't pay off that phone. It's not like you are paying interest. If you do, you will lose the DPP $25 discount. If you look at your bill, it's marked differently than the M2M.

I can't imagine Verizon altering the terms of the contract like that without prior notice. Carriers are evil, but I'm sure they don't want to violate any FTC rules.

I'm not sure it was exactly part of the plan, or just a discount they offered. It only affects you once you pay off the phone, and really, there is no contract once you pay it off.

They want to you to change to the new Verizon plan. It's more per line, but may be cheaper on data, YMMV.

I was told this as well. They eliminated it right before the contract on one of my phones expired. Had they not removed it this line would have become discounted by $25. Bringing the total cost of the line to $15 as it is with another line I have on MTM.

what did u do about it?

so basically if I am MTM on any of the lines, if I do a phone upgrade on DPP, that will kill the $25 line discount when the phone is paid off?

So I verified with a Verizon chat rep that they did kill the M2M discounts as of March 10, 2016. However, he said that since my phone was placed on the DPP prior to the new policy, that theline would be automatically placed on the $25 M2M discount once the device was paid off. Not sure if I really believe it or not.

So one way to stick it to Verizon would be to buy a cheap flip phone on the DPP for something like $2/mo. That would yield a net discount of $23/mo. Would this work?

So I have 4 Month to month lines with the -$25 discount on each line.
If I buy a new phone say from Target with $300 trade in and other sale and just swap the SIM am I going to lost the $25 discount. Im sure the phone balance due would be put on a DPP but I would pay off asap.

Looking at options going forward.

Well this is terrible, another reason Verizon likes to play games and screw with us (ie. their reward point system and hoping you'll get in for that 1000 point for $10 GC that's only good for VZW bills except you have to be extremely lucky to get).

I also have More Everything Plan still with 5 lines, 3 lines on DPP (S6, Note 5, and S7) and 2 lines that's out of contract but managed to get M2M (S4 and Note 4).

My personal line is with the Note 4 and my contract ended in February 2016 but they didn't automatically added M2M and only until April I realized something was wrong so I called up Verizon and said I can't get M2M even though my contract ended Feb and their M2M grandfathered program was till March. I ended up spending weeks getting that M2M thru 3 different long conversations with higher up escalations.

But let's say I want to get a Note 7 and to get the best discount, I would want to open a new line for discounts, pay off new line DPP, close that line and swap sim from Note 4 to Note 7. Except Note 7 uses a nano sim I believe while Note 4 is micro sim. Does that mean my M2M discount on Note 4 that I struggled so hard to get will disappear overnight?!

You are going to have an issue with the SIM swap, as that has to be done online or via a rep. When I tried to do online it was going to drop the discount. This happened back in July. My son's phone broke and I gave him my old phone. I called in to support and after a few minutes of whining and gnashing of teeth, I was transferred to a supervisor, they were able to do it without losing the discount..but YMMV. Every rep and sup is different.

Now you can do a phone number swap..you can do online yourself. Get new Note 7, then swap phone numbers, then cancel the old line.
