The unlimited data plans slugfest rages on between Verizon Unlimited and T-Mobile One. When the Un-Carrier announced it is tweaking its offering by adding HD video and HotSpot, Verizon swings back with free handsets.
Verizon Unlimited Free Smartphone Deals
Verizon has announced that it's offering free smartphones to subscribers of other carriers willing to switch to Verizon Unlimited.
The list of hottest smartphones include Apple iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, LG V20, Moto Z Droid, or Moto Z Force Droid.
“In order to get one of today’s most coveted phones for free, you need to bring your phone number to Verizon, sign up for the introductory Verizon Unlimited plan, select device payment and trade in one of 15 eligible devices,” Verizon said in a statement.
Below is a list of said eligible smartphones:
• iPhone 6

• iPhone 7
• iPhone 7 Plus
• Samsung Galaxy S6
• Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+
• Samsung Galaxy S7
• Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
• Samsung Note 5
• LG G5
• LG V20
• HTC 10
If you down own a smartphone from the list above, switchers can trade in an iPhone SE, Galaxy S5, Samsung Note 4, LG V10, LG G4, or HTC M9 to get one of the hottest flagship smartphones offered and pay just $5 per month.
One should also take note of the fineprint. Here it is in Verizon’s own words:
“Promotional traded in credits issued over 24 months and will appear in 2-3 billing cycles after receipt of trade at Verizon. Your smartphone purchase must remain active on device payment agreement for 24 months to receive credits. If you cancel service or if device payment is paid off or transferred, trade in promotional credits will stop. Traded device must be in good working cosmetic condition to receive credits,” the promo material states.
Verizon Unlimited Plans Pricing
Verizon offers unlimited data, talk, and text for $80 per month. Those who will need two lines need to pay $140 or $70 per line plus taxes and fees. Verizon offers four lines for $180 or $45 per line exclusive of other charges. All plans can enjoy LTE speeds.
Take note Verizon Unlimited has a 22 GB data cap per billing cycle. So, as you gobble up more data the higher the chances are that you’ll be pushed to the slower lanes.
It also comes with HD video streaming and HotSpot with 10 GB allocation.
Will T-Mobile strike back? Let’s wait and see.
