Verizon Discontinuing Its Android Data Widget; New One Coming for Shared Data Plans
As you can see from the pic above, Verizon is apparently doing away with its data widget for Android phones. For those who don't have it or haven't seen it, this is a widget directly from Verizon that helps you see how much data you have used to help you avoid going over your monthly limit, if you have one. The My Verizon Data Widget, will delete itself off of your phone with its newest and next update. After yesterday, June 25th, it will no longer be supported.
At first it may seem like some crafty way to trick customers into going over their data limits on Verizon's new Shared Data Plans; however, luckily that is not the case. Apparently, Verizon is coming out with a new/updated one very soon to replace the old one. This new one is designed to work specifically with their Shared Data Plans, and will apparently work with older plans as well.
