Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, you’ve probably seen either celebrity studded ads for the new plans from Verizon Wireless or scathingly critical articles lampooning Verizon’s price hikes and Twitter campaign. If you’re interested in saving money on your wireless bill, neither of these are of much use. No worries — Wireless Butler is here to help.
The Butler sidestepped the media circus, took a closer look at the New Verizon Plan(s), and found these four takeaways:

- Carryover Data is a step in the right direction, but accumulated data expires after 30 days.
- “Safety Mode” costs $5 for smaller plans, and is probably not worth the cost, especially since similar apps are available for free on both iOS and Android platforms.
- Overage charges remain the same: $15 per GB.
