but $50 for the first gb is unreal. Exactly, I'm cool with these being the new Family Share plans. But this really screws over those of us who are still on a single line account.

EXACTLY! WTF?! I really hope Verizon doesn't manage to pull a fast one over anyone's eyes with these bullshit prices. I was really hoping that VZW would capable of offering a valuable plan. This is not it. This is a joke.

in the Article: AT&T Confirms Device Upgrade Fee Rising to $36 forum

No KOL, I'm afraid you missed his point. The person you replied to is advocating that the change in cost of subsidizing the phone be reflected in the upgrade price of the phone the consumer pays. Increasing the "Upgrade" fee and blaming the cost of the fee on the cost of equipment is underhanded and doesn't make a lot of sense. Also, your argument that it's better to pay it on your bill than at the time of ...

I ask you to provide hard evidence to support your claim that regulations in fact KILL industries. All you have provided in response is page full of hyperbole and conjecture. Each one of your "statements" is concluded with a question of "guess why?" Which you then fail to answer for me. The key to presenting a strong and convincing argument is to provide a clear and thorough point that is supported by factual evidence. You have done nothing here ...

Oh I thought we had just resorted to throwing out information with no factual support or evidence. In every single post you have made, you reference history and "fact". But when asked to provide support for all these claims you're making, you have yet to provide anything in the way of support of those claims. I will tell you what, I will start taking you seriously when you can provide me with some references supporting all of your claims. ...

acdc1a said: What kind of ego-centered, entitled mentality thinks it's anyone's responsibility to protect them other than the person looking back in the mirror? Wow, you're really good at making these broad sweeping statements. So then in your opinion, we have no use for Police, Emergency Services (fire, medical), Armed Forces, the FDA, FCC. In fact by this logic, you're basically advocating nothing short of an Anarchistic society where literally every man, woman, and child has to rely solely on what ...

in the Article: AT&T Customers Sue to Block T-Mobile Aquisition forum

But more importantly, none of these carriers are even a blip on either AT&T or Verizon's radar. And what I mean by that, is that their capacity as a company to offer significant challenges to AT&T or Verizon's customer base is a pipe dream. Do you know why most of these companies are up and running? Because they're willing to take on the customers that AT&T and Verizon are unwilling to accept with out paying a heft up front ...

GeeksAreBest said: Actually, most keep you grandfathered unless you opt to change. To a certain extent. Not sure where the legal mumbo jumbo sits, but Verizon at their discretion can force customers when they make changes to their account to accept a new price structure. For example, say you go buy your next VZW phone OUTRIGHT and go to activate it on your line; I feel quite strongly that the rep is going to ask you to pick a new data ...

I assume you mean not really in terms of missing out on a revenue stream. I think it's fallacy and short sighted to ignore the demand. The public has proven quite clearly that while there is a huge demand for quality content it's not enough to persuade a large portion of us to sign up for cable. And back in the day when literally the only option was to get cable or gtfo this gun to head tactics worked. But ...

macarunni said: So if you have Time Warner you'll have to pay for this service. When I was on the website I didn't see an option to subscribe with out being a Satellite / Cable / Fios customer. Is there? Home Box Office is losing out on an entire revenue stream for their content by not allowing people to subscribe to HBO Go and pay them directly.

I do my best to explain what the actual FULL RETAIL value of the device is that they are buying. I also explain that if they for some reason break/lose their device while ineligible for an renewal you would have to PAY THAT PRICE for a new device. But with insurance, you pay a $50.00 deductible instead of $600 for this new Android phone that you have to have. Never mind the fact that they have three demon children ...

We do returns on all stuff, but we get people to who refuse to share ANY information with me. I do my best to explain that we collect this information for return purposes if you lose your reciept. I won't lie, it's quite satisfying when the same people who straight up refuse to give me info come back wanting to exchange and don't have a reciept.

Considering AT&T's issues with network congestion in a lot of their larger markets, do we assume this new feature isn't going to add to an already over stressed network? You would think the better PR move would be to announce improvements and changes to their network.

Not everyone has their thumb on the pulse of the Wireless industry 24/7 like you do Hitur Petar. So instead of being a sarcastic asshole, you could take the time to inform the poster of the changes. Since you obviously are up to date on a minute by minute basis of what's going on in the industry. Do you have a newsletter we can subscribe too?

You make a very valid point John. People sometimes do need to make better assesments of what their true needs are.

Thanks for your constructive discussion, it's nice change of pace from the usual around here. LOL. Best of luck, Ghost H.

@Azeron I think you're trying to infer way too much from what I wrote. No where in my post did I call for the abolition of Sprint or any of the other smaller carriers. I am full believe in the power of free market and competition. Competition drives innovation and consumer protection. So your assumption that I support any kind of monopoly or "Duopoly" as you call it, is false and based on your own flawed interpretaion of what ...

I have no qualms with Sprint, and I appluad their efforts in bringing the company back from the abismal state it was in several years ago. I sell wireless in a state that see's very little competition among carriers. In fact for the longest time all we had was VZW and Altell up here. The reason I percieve VZW to be superior is simply based on national coverage. Yeah Sprint wins in a lot of price point comparisons, but ...

I re-read my post, and no where in there did I say that the it's any less true coming from a Sprint troll. What I, and now many other people in this thread, have pointed out is that no one really cares that Sprint had it first. If Sprint was such a great service and this was such an awesome feature then more people would be switching to Sprint.

There certainly are Troll armies for every carrier. But it seems like the Sprint trolls are the most persistent.
