You guys have a specific deal too.

Haha. Verizon deals are only better if you don't look at the monthly price you are paying for your cell phone plan.
I work for the FL Prison system so I live and work in the sticks where I have to stand on my head and hold the phone out the window to get AT&T, TMo, or Sprint. Verizon coverage far outweighs any service, so they have a right to charge more for it. While I hate thinking about what I pay for Verizon over other services, I think about all the other things I'm not paying for. If you're in a big city and have all the perks of other services, then YOU are paying more for everything else - housing/rent, gas, food, insurance, etc. Sure, I the closest Chic-fil-A is 45 miles away, but I don't sit in my car for 45 minutes to an hour to go 10 miles to work either.

So I had 4 iPhone 6S's on the 12GB Shared plan and was paying $164/mo (with 20% off the data plan through state discount). I cringed thinking about going to the unlimited plans as in my mind it would push me in the $210+ range. After doing some research and waiting for a deal, I ended up getting $589 credit on each of 3 phones going to the iPhone 12 Mini's, and $699 credit on 1 phone to get the iPhone 12 Pro. I went to the base unlimited on the 3 phones and the next unlimited level up ($10 more) on my 12 Pro so I could get Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+ for free, along with Apple Music for 6 months. I also qualify for the Military Discount. So 3 iPhone 12 Mini's at $40/mo unlimited plus $5/mo ea for 24 months for the phones, and 1 iPhone 12 Pro at $50/mo unlimited plus $12/mo for 24 months for the phone and 4 free services. Then after the discount for Military (-$10/line) and AutoPay (-$10), I am paying $169/mo after taxes - FIVE dollars more than what I had on the shared plan to get 4 new phones, unlimited data, 4 extra services, and now Apple Arcade for a year - that works out to $42.25/mo per phone. Sure, some of you are paying $35/mo for TMo per line, but I can get service when and where I need to. Anyone who comes to the prisons to do technical/service and they have TMo, Sprint, or even AT&T lose their signal and have to use my phone!

They shouldn't have let me go to t mobile. Because now I'm never going back, even with bullshit perks like this.

Let me just pay a reasonable price for service and add on whatever content I want.

Agree. For those who are already with VZ and don't intend to move, this is better to get those additional services for free. Otherwise, T-Mo has been doing quite well especially with their bundled streaming service discounts.

Just out of curiosity what do you pay a month? My Verizon is around $36 a phone for the basic unlimited.

Currently $114 total for 7 unlimited lines. and no, this is not easily duplicatable, but when I switched, I was paying about $170 for 3 lines on VZW. switched to 3 lines on t mo for $96. then through various free lines and b1g1 line promos, that's where I am at the moment with tmo.

I will admit that Verizon has some decent rates if you can get 5+ phones on the same plan. but at the time, I only had 3 and it infuriated me when my brother in law who was on my plan and left because his employer was going to pay his phone bill, I dropped from 4 lines to 3 and all in, my bill went down by............$2. total. so I saved quite a bit right off the bat, and now after all the free add a line promos over the past year, the gap continues to widen. even $35 (which I assume means $40+ after taxes and fees), sounds pretty nuts at this point.

Actually just checked and it's $112, not $114. Otherwise, everything I said is accurate. Long story short (or long...) I signed up last fall when they had the 20% off for the life of the account (insider discount I think? I'm sure you can Google it). So I moved the 3 lines for $40 each ($120 - all numbers quoted are all in with taxes and fees). After the 20% discount, it was $96, or $32 per line per month. Then, like many other people on SD, I've added lines when they were free - I don't know how closely you've followed tmo threads, but yeah, they just let you add unlimited lines for...free. did that twice for $0. Then finally added 2 more lines through a b1g1 (so I'm paying for 1 of the lines) because it also qualified for Costco rebate cards for BYOD rebates they were doing. In addition to that sort of ridiculous savings, I got 2 galaxy S20 FE 5G phones when we switched that were <$0 after all the rebates with no trades. Also, recently upgraded my wife's IPhone XR to a 12 this past mother's day for a total of the cost of tax and $6 shipping. And I have $800 in Costco cash to spend from adding the BYOD lines. I know I'm all over the place, but if you look at past t-mo deals, it really does make sense, I promise Smilie

I can't guarantee that they will run similar deals in the future, but clearly they have been trying to steal customers from VZW over the last year, and it's working.

Any way to get this to work for FiOS customers like the Sling deal?

I'm on Republic Wireless's 1 GB/mo plan - $20/mo for more mobile data than I'll need when I'm working from home all the time.
