Millenicom customer base gets sold

Got this in an email today:
Quote:
Dear Kxx Axx,

We are announcing the acquisition by Verizon of the Millenicom customers who use their service. There should be no interruption with your Internet connection, they will be in contact with you regarding plan options.

Please accept our most sincere appreciation for the opportunity to be your Internet provider.

Dennis Castle
Owner
Millenicom Inc.
So I gather the only real assets Millenicom had was their customers. Feeling like a #, anyone else?

My wife has been trying to figure out how to make a little money on me. She will really be pissed when she finds out Millenicom sold me for cash.

Wow, this is HUGE. I am not yet a Millenicom customer, and did note the NEW Verizon plans with a big reduction in cost. INTERESTING.

What will be interesting is to see what our plan does. I am at $80 mo. for 20GB data.

Wow that's cheap, NOTE! Verizon just announced a short time ago a "temporary" reduction in their large DATA plans! I called and got DOUBLE the data for LESS money every month. Only good until end of October, so if you are a VERIZON customer with a big data plan CALL THEM! You know they NEVER call you to say, "We have a cheaper plan for you!" I would drop dead of shock if they did.

There seems to be a sudden change in the data plan pricing for both Verizon and AT&T, guessing we're finally seeing an industry shift in pricing. More data for less money.

I know there is a lot of posturing between the big companies as they continue to compete on the only thing that is left: DATA. Everyone offers unlimited texting and talk. (I still cringe from the days when you paid for texts and I had teenagers.... OY. One month: 13000 texts. I said, "WHEN do you have time to SLEEP?!!"

I am getting (I think) 30 GB now for $110. Anyway, make sure and check. It supposedly goes away soon.

I currently have the 20GB plan from Millenicom plus 10GB from AT&T shared between 2 iPhones and an iPad.

AT&T didn't call me but did send me a text about 2 weeks ago saying I could upgrade my data and get an additional 20GB (total 30gb) for an additional $30/month. I thought it was just a sort of scam as that worked out to be $1.50/GB for the upgraded data, you know that too good to be true thing, but perhaps I should do that now in case Verizon doesn't offer anything good.

AT&T offer only good until 10/31.

Ken,
I use a Verizon air card and AT&T hot spots depending on where I am and the service available. I regularly change my data plan when needed. AT&T allows me unlimited changes during a month that back dates to the start of the billing period. I often change from my 2 gig to 10 or 30. Your right, the charge for 30 gig is only $30 more than 10 gig.

I think the expiration of 10/31 might be suspect....I have been making these changes at those rates for sometime now. Worth a call, however.

Verizon allows me to change too, but only allows 2 changes, back dated per month. As I'm burning through data with them, I watch it a bit more carefully.

Next week, were camping in an area where Verizon is poor and AT&T rocks. Several places we camped in Oregon last month, we had one or the other, not both.

Ken

Just had a "Chat" with Millenicom "they" don't know very much, I asked them if my account would be "transferred" over even if it's currently suspended they didn't know, I asked if they (Verizon) would honour the existing contracts they said the didn't know, its all up to Verizon. Gee I wonder if we will get screwed in this too????
