Can any verizon phone be used for this plan?
Why not?

Does this:

Mean that after 10GB its only 3G?
Yup.
does that mean only for hotspot or for everything
Hotspot.
Can someone please explain what Hotspot is vs regular internet? I am not fluent in these matters.

it is using the phone as a hotspot to provide a connection to a different device such as a laptop.

With this new plan it's included, but limited to 10gb/month.
I agree to disagree, even if you disagree to agree to disagree.

I signed a Sprint contract the day before Verizon came out with this promotion...coming from T-Mobile, horrible service around the house. so I got 12 days left to decide if Sprint is better, otherwise, I am thinking of just switching to Verizon with my 4 lines.

depends on what you're getting with sprint & how good their service is in your area

I'm talking about the $90 unlimited up to five lines. But you must get phones with the plan which means you're locked in for 18-24 months paying for the phone and ultimately have to pay for service too. The sprint $90 promotion applies to all monthly bills till March 31 2018 and after it will go up... So essentially I'm stuck with Sprint, but they may just have a promotion by then that I can continue with them. otherwise I'll deal with the 11 months left with their CS... Anyone ever had experience with Sprint CS? Are they lucrative and flexible enough like Verizon? TIA

Switched over 18 lines.  According to my rep (guy we always work with) the $20 lines stand as is.
Only limitation over my old plan is that each subaccount can only have 10 lines,  so I have to have two $110 lines.
Also tablets went from $10 to $20.
Net additional cost is $80 per month,  which I'll make up in overage,  and it frees up a lot of data anxiety.

What's the credit card thing you're talking about?

Can you explain this? Meaning there is an additional $20 fee per line?
