Yeah, that's showin' 'em, Verizon! Keepin' it competitive!
This must be part of Verizon's "We Think Customers Are Really Stupid" marketing campaign.
Guess what? Price is not the only consideration.
I hope they are handing out free devices... oh, they aren't?
Verizon is honestly the greediest bunch of bastards in the US cellular crowd.
When will AT&T follow suit...

Just really interesting move on VZW's part.
Quite a difference
What is really odd is...
If you live in a 4G area, ok, I can see it... but for the majority of the nation... wtf?
