Nice PR Move

Thank Jesus, Allah, Buddha And Jehova!!!
Most Verizon customers r...
It just keeps getting better.
Let's see here:
Verizon revenues down almost 20
Verizon draws huge attention to their network size compared to the number 2 carrier.
Verizon announces major hype on new devices.
Verizon doubles tethering rates as customers wait in line for new hyped device.
Verizon doubles ETF on hyped device and Smartphones.
No one can possibly justify how this looks. Bait and jail. Can you hear me now?
I feel very confident with my choice in staying with Sprint as my carrier.
I dont care that verizon has done all that, Hell Im with Sprint.
If Sprint decided to jack their prices up 30% It would more then likely not be retro-active on contracts prior to tha...
The ONLY exception to this is if you have an Enterprise service (like BES). Since you are already paying $45 for data, tethering is $15.
Smartphone + tethering always is 60.
I plan on sticking through my contract and even re-upping my contract for a new phone when time comes. Why? Because Verizon works the best in my area and all my friends and family our on Verizon.
Sprint thinks it will save itself with slashing prices but there has to be a reason why they and t-mobile are the only ones doing so.
Don't Tell Menno....
2. It is one day after
Where is it written that carriers never change their mind?
No change probably because its unnecissary
I saw a chart from an ATT rep that showed port ins from other carriers and the number of people porting from verizon was through the roof, topped all other carriers by a landslide.
Why would they have to do this to keep people from ripping them off for phones, they've always had expensive phones and their earnings show that this is obviously not an issue, and chances are the few that are doing this simply wont pay the ETF anyways.
My problems with Sprint...
Sprint ripped off the family members I brought to them.
Sprint ripped off the friends I brought to them.
Sprint banned me from writing them anymore checks on account of some illegal alien working in customer service who told me the max hold on a check is 7 days when if fact its only 5.
Sprint made me wait for hours in their stores because I was having phone problems or account issues.
Sprint has obnoxious foreign people and hoodrats with attitudes in their call centers.
It's sad how a network with such potential could be so badly cursed. Give me 3 months as CEO of Sprint and I bet verizon would kissing my a$$ out of respect.
When it comes to performance of networks even though I now have at&t. Spri...
So there I am...
I have contended that Sprint is on the rise again and as contracts run out from the ones that bailed, Some will be back. It felt good seeing this. Sprint deserves credit for pressing forward. They have become smartphone depot, CS has returned to excellent, Their plans are some of the best in the industry and for them to not follow suit with th...
