... A Fifty Dollar Simply Everything plan?
Re: Includes $70 Unlimited Data
It's not generous. It's certainly not fair. Carriers want money but would prefer that consumers not actually use the service for which they are paying. Verizon can get away with this arrogance but I don't believe T-Mobile has the same resources to do so. Only time will tell.
Exactly. Sprint has no chance to compete with Verizon and AT&T on coverage. They have to sell what they have now. Selling what they hope to have next week or next year is a recipe for disaster.
Poor execution. How can anyone take these guys seriously? I'm beginning to wonder if they will ever deploy VoLTE.
Re: Throttling is a Necessary Evil
Wi Fi is not available where I live. Unbelievable that Verizon has defenders. Just goes to show that when Armageddon occurs there will indeed be those fighting by Satan's side who know exactly who they are fighting for.
...for the FCC to stand up to Verizon. It's bad enough that they were allowed to take over Alltel which was a clear violation of the agreement Verizon had which was supposed to keep its paws off of Alltel for ten years. Verizon always agrees to terms and then alters the deal when it is already on the ground. Enough already.
I thought DT wanted out of the U.S. market? They apparently feel really good about themselves because they have to know there is not a snow ball's chance of Sprint being allowed to buy them out. Therefore this offer must be extremely insulting to them or they actually believe they can thrive in the U.S. Or are they hoping for another poison pill deal like they received from AT&T when their acquisition fell through.
Re: Family Plan Impact
Umm..Verizon's would prefer that we leave. They are showing us the door.
...is the perfect villain for this scenario. The airlines won't restrict phone calls. It's up to Big Brother. I think text messaging with phones on silent might be feasible. No way can we have two hundred passengers holding conversations on an airplane. Total chaos.
Re: What people don't realize
There is no Free Wi Fi in the rural south where I live.
"they dont want you to use streaming data..."
...unless you're paying per MB. They are very cool with those NOT on Unlimited Plans streaming. This is an end run on VZW's part and it just may work. Fran Shammo gloated to the share holders about how 4G would put money in their pockets because users will burn through their data allotments and then either pay overages or bump their plans up to higher tiers. The Unlimited Data consumers are the ones they want to get rid of. ...
Re: Tethering must be free with Verizon
Exactly. But Google pushed an update which stopped free tethering from working on my GS3 thereby forcing me to purchase the data plan as I was unwilling to risk rooting my device. In the end...Verizon always wins.
Re: I smell a lawsuit
This is funny. Anyone using more than 4.7 GB per month is a data hog? They're basically enforcing the $29.99 for 5GB artificially.
Spot on. People kill me with this "well they've been doing it for so long already" nonsense. If you come home and find the babysitter molesting your five year old are you going to allow it to continue because it's been going on for a year? Hell, no. You're killing that SOB.
Get Verizon's *bleep* out of your throat.
For eight years I was forced to pay for unlimited data in phones which did not even support basic Internet. Nice to see Verizon putting the screws to its customers as usual. Evil *Bleeping* *Bleepards*.
Re: a00000442ce4f9 Listed lost or stolen, but is brand new out of the package???? HELP!!!
Thieves hit a store in my area. They stole iPhones and iPads. No way Verizon allows those devices to be activated. So I'm dying to know where you bought your phone from.
I wonder how often that happens?
I am in favor of the consumer having the freedom to take his phone to another carrier. When possible, however with the varying frequencies used by the major carriers does this even matter?
Re: verizons prepaid service
Pagepluscellular.comPagepluscellular.com T he $55 monthly plan sounds like a match for what you have with T-Mobile.
Re: verizons prepaid service
I would go with Page Plus. Verizon's network at a reasonable price.
Verizon will be next.
The bean counters over at Evil Red will calculate the four dollars per new subscriber as a loss in revenue and before you know it Verizon will increase its Activation fee to match.
It's just four dollars.
I doubt anyone will even notice the increase. Honestly, when i upgraded the Upgrade Fee wasn't even noticeable. By the way, wireless providers sell AIR. They have always gotten over on consumers. There's nothing new here.
When even T-Mobile is handing you your head on a platter... Gobbling up a bunch of small fry carriers and sliding Consumer Reports a few bills does not make one the best carrier. Largest? Yes. Best? Not a chance. Back to the draw board.
Re: Needed this last year
Agreed. I have been several a VZW subscriber for fourteen years now and it's akin to being in a loveless marriage. I find myself making excuses as to why I stay. Three unlimited data plans is all I've got left.
Where are you Verizon?
Wow! Someone pinch me. Did I miss. Verizon's announcement that they were launching VoLTE in a market? Has AT$T truly beaten mighty Big Red to the punch. If so my advice to Shammo is: fewer commercials. And more action, punk.
I'm going with the Note 3. I'm 6'4" and 220. The Note suits me just fine. As far as waiting for the Note 4... I would prefer Apple get it's head out of it's arse and build a CDMA iphone capable of simultaneous voice and data. I would buy that
Re: iPhone 5S unlock question
Is this a joke? I am going to pretend that this is actually a serious post simply because I am bored. One can not buy any random iphone and activate it on Verizon's network. It needs be a CDMA iphone. So GSM handsets (AT&T and T-Mobile) are out. Even though Verizon and Sprint use the same technology...they don't broadcast on ALL the same frequencies. SOME but not ALL. Then there is the question of the CDMA portion of the ...
Re: Verizon reception
Re: Open Letter To Robert "Bob" Johnson CFO/CIO for Sprint United
Agreed. That being said I am sure that the share holders are rubbing their grubby little hands with glee.
I guess I am not as much of a fan of Sprint after all.
The GS5 is supposedly water resistant so there may not be a need for a Lifeproof for it. That would open up the possibility of an Otterbox instead. I would still prefer a Lifeproof for the Note 3 though.
I'm actually trying to talk myself into the iphone simply because of the Lifeproof case. I would probably go Galaxy Note 3 right now if the Lifeproof were available for it. All things being equal i may just switch my GS3 and the Incredible and suspend the Incredible for three months.
...only makes a case for the S3 and the S4...so far. So there is no advantage for the S5 over the Note3...right now. Maybe I should consider the S4?
Well, I am looking to replace my HTC Incredible. I would go for the Iphone if it were capable of simultaneous voice and data like every other 4GLTE phone on Verizon. It looks lite either the Samsung Galaxy 5 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
There ought to be a compromise where Sprint can compete and agree to sell that garbage 2.5GHz in favor of keeping the 600MHz in markets where purchase of the 600MHz has caused Sprint to exceed the allowable amount of spectrum. If this cannot be hashed out, Sprint should simply announce its plans to sell the 2.5GHz spectrum.
Re: Sounds like someone's having a temper tantrum
There are no rivals for Sprint and T-Mobile to acquire or merge with the way Bell Atlantic Mobility and SBC did way back when. Get over the myth.
Re: Sounds like someone's having a temper tantrum
Neither T Mobile nor Sprint has ever shown an inclination th o build out rural areas. Too bad Sprint turned down Alltel Scott Ford way back when. Now look Alltel went and purchased Verizon instead. Well not really but I do think Verizon us being run more like Alltel was when I worked there.
Re: What a joke!
Wrong. Verizon is the product of a merger. Bell Atlantic Mobility, Prime Co and GTE not to mention Air Touch Cellular. They divested some of GTE's properties to Alltel and later snagged Alltel back after Alltel had gobbled up Century Tel and Western Wireless cellular properties. That's not anyone choosing the largest carrier. Lest we forget that the entity formerly known as Cingular Wireless began as the product of Bell South and South Western Bell's ...
