Verizon Updates Device Upgrade Eligibility Practices
"Verizon says this is to better help people understand when they are eligible for new device discounts."
Honestly ... what an absolutely gigantic load of crap.
Let me fix that:
Verizon says this is to better help people pay us for an extra four months to subsidize the same crappy phone.
I really wish Verizon didn't have the best signal where I live.
Customers: This is ridiculous! Verizon has just went too far! I am going to cancel my contract and look at other carriers!
ATT: Interesting! Why did we not think of that first? Let us do the same thing, except change one minor detail, to show that we are unique...
Typical Verizon rep: If you are upset with this, go on to some other carrier, and enjoy their crappy coverage. Verizon has coverage EVERYWHERE, and every other carrier has coverage NOWHERE...(while at the same time, the rep enjoys his discounted service for being a Verizon rep)
Am I wrong about this?
You say that for Verizon, you only pay 199 for the Iphone, but in reality you are paying the subsidy in your monthly rate. What I do not like is that when the contract is over, a customer will continue to pay that subsidy each month that he is month to month.
Not saying that T-Mo works for everybody, but it does work for some...and for those, it is a better value..

As far as everything else, I am very happy with the pricing of what I get, and their customer service is unparalleled. I stop by the T-Mobile store all the time with small questions and they are always very helpful.

The carriers now have us all by the boys.
Why can't they just be honest, instead of treating us all like children.
I can handle my phone usage by myself, thank you.
I can also read my contract to find out when I can upgrade. That information used to be on their website right beside a picture of my phone.
Oh, well. When there's universal wifi, maybe I can unplug the phone for good.
Of all the things I use my cellphone for, phon...
I can count the number of dropped calls i've had on T-Mobile on my fingers in the years i've had them, and their HSPA+ data is consistently faster than my Verizon LTE (provided) work phone (not to mention in Phoenix, i drop way more calls on Verizon than on T-Mobile!)
I'm sorry you had a bad experience with T-Mobile, but that's just not the case for most that use it.
