Which New Verizon Plan is Best for Me?

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.


Unlimited or Um-limited?

“Unlimited” is the worst example of mislabeling in wireless. All so-called unlimited plans are throttled. That’s why we call them “um-limited.” Here’s what you might have missed in the fine print on your um-limited data plan:
