Grandfathered Unlimited Data

Okay so what is the true story? Can you or can't you be grandfathered into Unlimited data as long as you sign a 2 year deal? I was told by a Costco person selling Verizon phones that you can....I need the real story

Kyocera Duraxt

I am trying to change my carrier from US Cellular to Wal-Mart Straight Talk which is carried by Verizon. I would like to purchase a Kyocera Duraxt but can't seem to find one that uses Verizon. Non-existant? Also, I have been with US Cell for about 6 years without any problems but lately there have been many plus the straight talk plan is about 15 bucks a month less with more time and text. Thanks, Tom

Interesting news came on the wire

There have been rumors that Verizon and AT&T are going to be taking over Vodafone. All shares are up when it comes to this potential rumor. Interesting.

If anyone wants to keep Unlimited Data w/o paying the outrageous $600+, here's a decent choice. . .

HTC Rezound full-retail for $399 on Amazon Wireless, so if anyone wants to get a new smartphone w/o paying the ginormous price of $600+, this would be a decent choice. Thought it would be worth sharing. d-Verizon-Wireless/dp/B0061R3DVO/ref=sh_br_ph _21?ie=UTF8&transaction=INDIVIDUAL_NEW&sr=1-2 1-entd&qid=1364650208312

Any idea when Verizon is going to start deploying LTE-A?

All the dealings with the FCC over the 1700 AWS from the cable companies is over, sooo I'm wondering when Verizon is going to start deploying 700/1700 LTE-A??? Stuff I've been reading about carrier aggregation is also very exciting!

I'm hoping Q4 of this year, or Q1 of 2014.

Has Verizon mentioned at all their timeline to
start implementing 700/1700 LTE-A?

Want to upgrade but still have unltd data

On average I use around 4GB a month and that is with absolutely little to no wifi use (4G is often faster). I somehow also used 6MB this morning at 5am while I was sleeping Surprised So between the wifi and somewhat monitoring my data use I could easily drop my data usage.

My current plan is 900 minutes ($79.99) with unltd data/text ($29.99) with insurance and taxes my monthly bill is roughly $122.

So Im thinking of just signing a new contract and doing the 4GB plan ($40 + $70) which means I would pretty much be spending the same amount as before.

Any input on my situation would be appreciated, thanks!

Call/Message blocking

VZW allows you to block phone numbers from your MyVerizon page.
Will this also block iMessages from a number you want to block? Confused

Why do carriers charge for an upgrade fee when we extend our contract with them? I think its too much already because we've already paid the activation fee when we got a new phone, so why do I need to pay for another upgrade fee just to stay with them?

As we all know jailbreaking is illegal. But there is a process that is legal. It is on the tip of my tongue and can't get the name for anything. Do any of you guy know the name of the process and how to do the process? So I can open all possible apps functions of. And if you do how do I go about proceeding so I can get the most out of my phone. I am using the Apple iPhone 3GS by the way. Thanks in advance.

Thinking of switching ?

So I was suckered into Sprint's unlimited data, only to find out that I made a big mistake. What good is unlimited data if I can't use it half the time or it is slow as hell, I still don't have 4G in my area. So I wanted to know if I were to switch to Verizon, would there be anyway that I could get the unlimited data ?

Upgrade - Razr Maxx HD or wait?

I have a Motorola Droid X2 and really have no problems with it. My upgrade is available though and it wouldn't be right for me to just let it sit there. My wife has the Samsung Galaxy S III, and while it is nice, it feels a little light (like the heavier phone) to me.

So, I was looking at the Moto Razr Maxx HD. The phone looks really good, and the reviews all seem positive. My question is, since it has been out for about 5 months, should I wait just another month or two for a different phone that may be even better.

Problem is, I don't see any other phones out there that are "coming soon" that I'd have to have. The only other phone I've read about was the LG Optimus G, but that isn't on Verizon, and I have not seen the LG Optimus ...
