This is not to say that it was actually unlimited data. This is the 15GB of data that Verizon is currently offering its customers for no additional cost during the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s not unlimited data, but it may as well be because I honestly don’t use a lot of data because my regular plan has about 2GB of data per month. Now I have been able to use more than that since this new policy Verizon has where I am getting where more data than I need.
In the meantime, I have purchased an Apple Watch Series 5 that is a non-cellular model, but still relies on the iPhone for using cellular.
This has allowed me to test aspects of the Apple Watch, such as the GPS directions and check my weather through CARROT Weather on the watchface.
However, the biggest thing has come from using Apple Music when I am on the road. I don’t let the cellular have access to my Apple Music since it would likely suck up all of my data. Since I have 15GB of data right now, that is not as much of an issue.
This means that if I want to listen to the newest song from my playlist, I can do so without having to play it over Wi-Fi first.
I have liked being able to check Twitter or Facebook in public too since, again, I don’t really have to worry about my data usage. Downloading podcasts from the Apple Podcasts app has been nice too.
I think this has been a great idea by Verizon during the pandemic because it makes it so people have one less thing to worry about and also one less item to worry about when it comes to paying bills at the end of the month.
In fact, this has been such a good idea that I am giving Verizon 4/4 stars for its efforts during the coronavirus pandemic and helping its customers. It has been very much appreciated and makes me want to stay as a loyal customer to them for years to come.
Rating: 4/4 stars
