You wouldn't pay the upgrade fee if you bought the phone full retail :lol: Most carriers charge an upgrade fee... Verizon's is actually cheaper

It's probably fair to say that sometimes a screw up comes with consequences... Just because you admit it doesn't mean it gets fixed in your favor. On the same note, empathy, doesn't solve the guys problem so what good is it? So he can feel bettter? The guy just wants the problem solved, he doesn't care if you feel sorry for him (or at least he shouldn't)

you need balanced thinking... not balanced votes With Congress it's kind of backwards... It's nice when one party has control in that they can at least work towards their agenda (dont read that as an absolute, but rather a path of logic) When it's split neither party can get anything done (see present day) because every issue splits votes and can't get passed Again, you need balanced thinking politicians, not a balance of extremist? voters

I hear ya Jay, Unfortunatly being two Conservative is also a bad thing... and this debate about unlimited data is a perfect one. the strong conservative opinion: If you don't like it, go somewhere else or A Cell phone is a luxary The strong liberal opinion: My phone should be free, service cheap, everything i want, and work everywhere Neither of these "ideals" is correct in my opinion... a good balance of liberal and conservative views is generally the way things need ...

With the last year of developments in the wireless industry, I gotta say I completely argree While I tend to err on the conservative side (if you don't like it, go somewhere else). I will not say that cell phones are such a luxuary that they're not almost required of us to pursure happiness (see what I did there) I love your point that (paraphrasing here) "at some point, regulation is the only way it will not get worse" Thank you ...

Definitly agree with you here. Saying "it was the right thing to do" was definitly not what he should have said From Verizon's standpoint he's right though aka why not charge more if people will pay it but I'm a firm believer that if you do the right thing, then things work out in the end... trying to bend customers over constantly is going to blow up in their faces I'm typically not a fan of regulation, but I fear it ...

in the Article: Verizon to Kill Grandfathered Unlimited Plans forum

i'd imagine you can keep your unlimited until your contract ends... once that happens it's anyone's guess I'd imagine you'll lose it at that point if they're making everyone switch...or you can switch providers... once your contract is over there is no agreement towards your service This is all a guess but seems like the most logical idea. It sounds a lot like it won't matter whether your a single line or family line

i'd imagine you would only lose your unlimited data in order to get a Family Share Data pkg. They have to honor your contract... after that they could totally tell you "no more unl data" just as easily as you can say "well no more verizon"

Lose unlimted to be part of family share

in the Article: Verizon to Kill Grandfathered Unlimited Plans forum

i'd imagine that this is more or less what you can take from this They're not going to let you "share" your unlimited data with other people on your account, so if you want to take advantage of the Family Share Data... then you probably are going to lose your unlimted plan

it's not a big difference because the menu buttons are built into the software and they take up some space but then you watch a video and you get that full 4.65" of goodness

i'd say you have a point if they were doubling 3G plans as well but they're not This promotion is to entice customers to switch to the 4G network in an effort to expand that footprint

Times do change... there is some value in controlling the user experience Google could stand to control it a little, liek they seem to be doing lately Apple takes controlling the user experience to a whole other extreme... this comes with some benefits and some costs to the user

in the Article: Verizon Wireless Confirms $2 Fee for Making One-Time Payments forum

I've already seen quite the backlash about this... Enough that I'd be willing to bet that this doesn't go through. Same thing happened when Bank of America said they were going to charge a $5 fee per month to use your debit card... enough backlash caused them to cancel that idea. I work at a Verizon Retailer and we use the phone system to aid customers with their payments... can only imagine how fun it's going to be to tell them ...

they better stick to their threat

Again, ideal vs realistic Why lower prices when your customers are just fine with paying the current rate? The unlimtied plan example from earlier was an industry-wide change... All companies want to charge as much as they can get away with (kind of the underlying point tot his entire thing). Unlimited plans were "promoed" at the lower price... this particulat instance turned into a high enough take-rate to justify the price reduction... thus the current "promo" pricing hasn't changed.

Valid point... guess you got me good there huh? Feel good? Never may have been to strong a word but I'm sure, since you're so damn brilliant, that you understood what was implied In the end it wasn't about the price of the plan, it was about accessibility to those that would be willing to spend 69.99 as opposed to 99.99 If someone on a 59.99 plan makes a $10 jump as oppose to refusing a $40 jump then that one customer just ...

Thus why I didn't jump to plan prices like most others here... probably more network type things such as the price of roaming aka borrowing said network I will fully admit I do not understand where that would come into play, but I do get that prices won't "go down": nothing ever does

That's the point.. if the merger fails to go through the prince won't go up. AT&T wouldn't put themselves at a disadvantage... they still have competitors Merger goes through... no GSM competitors... why not raise prices in an effort to gain $$$. It wouldn't happen overnight by any means... probably start with increasing the cost of roaming agreements and going from there
