Imagine receiving this $9,000 Verizon bill

Verizon Data Overage
Shock cellphone bills are mostly a cliche by this point, but racking up a $9,000 bill without ever leaving the country is just plain impressive. That's why this Florida woman doesn't think Verizon is counting right, and listening to her side of the story, you have to agree. Cleveland.com spoke to Valarie Gerbus of Tampa, Florida, about her recent Verizon shock. She received a bill totalling $9,153 from 569 gigabytes of data overage, on one line with a regular 4GB of data usage. Um, how?

Verizon is offering a free* iPhone 7 deal, too

iPhone 7 Preorder Verizon
Why pay for your brand new iPhone 7 when you can get one for free*? T-Mobile and Sprint slapped together a couple of somewhat convoluted promotions in an effort to woo iPhone upgraders, and now Verizon has followed suit. In a nutshell, these deals allow you to trade in an old iPhone and get a credit toward your new iPhone 7. Then, you have to pay the balance in full for that iPhone 7, but the amount they pay is credited back to you in the form of wireless bill credits over the course of 24 months. Is it really a good deal? Yes and no.

Verizon just joined T-Mobile and killed overage fees

Verizon Adds Unlimited Data Plans
T-Mobile and Sprint have been making a big deal out of their "unlimited" data plans which offer generous data allowances, but throttle you to 2G speeds when you go over. Now even Verizon, famous for having good service that you have to sell both kidneys for, is jumping on board. Starting September 6th, a new feature called "Safety Mode" will be an option available to every subscriber. When you go over your allowance of 4G data, Verizon will no longer charge overage fees, but instead throttle you to 128Kbps.

Verizon’s 5G wireless will be Google Fiber in your pocket

Verizon 5G: Specifications
Large parts of this country are still languishing with cable internet speeds that give them 10 megabits down. So it's equal parts absurd and awesome that Verizon is actively making plans to bring gigabit speeds -- 100 times faster than cheap cable internet -- to cellphones nationwide. The announcement of gigabit speeds came as part of a wider Verizon announcement of its plans for 5G. The next gen of wireless technology is still some way off -- the FCC only recently outlined the regulatory framework -- but mobile carriers are already rushing to be the first players in the next big thing.

Struggling Sprint takes Verizon’s ‘Can You Hear Me Now’ sloppy seconds

Can You Hear Me Now Sprint
On Sunday night, the unthinkable happened. No, it wasn't when the Golden State Warriors dismantled the Cleveland Cavaliers to the tune of 110-77. And it wasn't when that crazy thing happened on Game of Thrones (no spoilers). It was when a commercial aired featuring Paul Marcarelli, best known as the "Can you hear me now?" Test Man for Verizon. But the commercial was for Sprint.

How to get 2GB of free data from Verizon in just a few seconds

Verizon Free Data
If you're a Verizon Wireless subscriber, there is a new promotion available until the middle of next month that you'll definitely want to take advantage of.
