'More Everything' promises more -- of everything -- to Verizon Wireless customers

On Wednesday, Verizon Wireless used a Twitter post to tease "more" changes coming to its service plans tomorrow. The tweet seemed to confirm Android Police's report, which said that the "More Everything" promotion would begin on Thursday.

"More Everything" will give subscribers more of -- everything. The 500MB, 1GB, and 2GB Share Everything data plans are being increased to 1GB, 2GB and 3GB caps (without a price increase, natch). Verizon Edge customers will see a price derop of $10 for plans on 8GB or less, while those on plans of 10GB and up will get a $20 cut.

Existing Share Everything customers -- in other those who have not migrated from their grandfathered unlimited data plans -- will automatically be switched to the new plans. Verizon is also offering early Edge upgrades to on-contract customers who purchased a phone prior to Nov. 13, 2013 (we've noticed this ourself). This offer is only good through the end of March, though.

Part of the promotion will be Verizon promoting its move to AWS spectrum, which will double its networ4k bandwidth in those markets thus upgraded, although it's unclear how many markets this will spread too.

"More" storage will be had by all, too, as Verizon will also give folks 25GB of Verizon Cloud storage space for free. All plans will also include international text messaging from the U.S.
