hey verizon, save your money on ads!
how about lower the price for service plan!
att family plan start at 59.99 VS Verizon at 69.99. i rarely use over 2gb data per month, 25$ VS 30$ on verizon. i save 15$ each month by staying with att! if you can match att prices, you have another customer! i'm sick of att always getting garbage phones!
They'll be the exclusive National Retailer
Premium/authorized retailers and corp stores should also have it at launch.
At least, that's what I'm reading from their press release.
