Data plan switched

Verizon switched my unlimited data plan to a 2 gig plan and told me nothing about it at the store. I didn't notice the change till I received a bill with a ten dollar increase about 6 weeks later. I have been trying to get plan back but so far no good. I told them they were completely dishonest for doing this and should honor my previous contract. Now that I have been made aware of this new change I will know that in the future if I accept an upgrade discount pricing on a data phone I will automatically go from the unlimited to a 2 gig plan. Until then I will make as many people aware as I can.

Time For My Upgrade

I was going to get the HTC Rezound but even though the reviews for the phone are good I am also reading the accessories are terrible. So with that in mind, is there anyone out there that has the phone that can vouch for the phone itself? Other than that I think I've made my decision

Verizon TAB

I bought into a business venture and paid some money, with that I recieved a Galaxy TAB 7in. It seems that it didnt work out and nothing has come of this business venture and I can send the TAB back in for refund but I dont trust them. So my question is what to do with the TAB, I called VW they said it had an open account on it but couldnt tell me anymore than that?? It may be on a prepaid but? so I cant sell it. Can I root it? what are some things I could do to use it or resell it?

obtaining a subsidary code

I recently purchased a new Motorola Droid Pro unlocked. It is mostly unlocked but not fully. Motorola told me that I need to obtain a subsidiary code from Verizon. To use on the Tmobile. However the Jackasses Verizon always is refuses to release it because I am not a Verizon customer. Is there any way around getting the code to get this phone to work for me? I don't want to think that I spent all this money on an unlocked phone and get nothing out of it. Thank you in advance.

Upgrade Fee

Verizon is the most disgusting company in American history!!!! They now are charging a 30 dollar upgrade fee when you upgrade your phone. So let's see. You spend 299 plus tax on the full retail price of the phone which brings your upgrade to roughl 350 + and now they add an addiotonal 30 dollars.

Share Data Plan

I am currently an unhappy customer with Verizon. I have been with Verizon for almost 3 years prior to that I was an Alltel user for many years. I have done some looking at this Share Data Plan. To the way I understand the plan it is more meant for people who have muiltple devices that have data services vs people like me that have only one device with services.

Currently I have unlimited data but I would like to get a new phone either S3 or Maxx however I was informed I would have to switch to this new data plan. I did some looking and it going to cost more per month for me to switch to this new data plan than what I currently pay per month with unlimited data. I dont agree that I should have to switch because verizon choose this for the...

Which one do I choose

planning on upgrading to 1st smartphone. Right now am thinking about the S3. was a bit disapointed that Verizon didnt get the HTC One. Is there a better phone out now than the S3 that is worth a closer look ? I am not wanting to "wait until the next best thing" comes out.
Thanks for the help

HTC Rezound or Samsung Galaxy III

Hey all. I am back again trying to get a feel on which phone to get this time. I am contemplating either the Galaxy III or the HTC Rezound. Now please don't just reply back saying get this cause its the latest and greatest, I particularly like the HTC phones but have been reading that the Galaxy for all intense purposes has the better specs.

Does anyone have any thoughts on either phone? Has anyone actually used the Rezound and liked it? Disliked it?

New HTC Phones

As I've said before I am due for an upgrade at the end of the month...I was toying around with getting the Samsung Galaxy III however now I am leaning towards the HTC Droid Incredible 4G and after careful comparison really noticed its an okay phone not great....Does anyone know if HTC has anything coming down the pipeline?

Upgrade time.

Ok in the next couple of months I'm gonna renew and get a new phone, I currently have the iphone 4 and am kinda tired of Apple's lackluster upgrades (ohh yea a slightly bigger screen, YEA!!)..... Sorry bout that Wink ....
So what's the best Android phone that verizon has reliabilty wise, I'm not in an LTE area so that's not an issue, I was thinking the Razr maxx but I don't really know much about them. Also are there any new great phones coming out android wise that I should wait for?

Better 4G coverage than 3G???

Is it possibly for VZW to have better 4G coverage than 3G coverage in some areas, or could it just be the phone?

My iPhone 4S shows 3 bars and everything works for awhile. Then it goes into searching for service, then no service. I had to reset my network settings and it still took a bit to get back to 3 bars of service.

My buddies Samsung Charge drops from 4G to 3G and stays on 3 bars of 3G.

And then I recently had a RAZR MAXX in this same semi dead spot. And it held onto 3 bars of 4G and data was great.

So I'm wondering if it's just the different radios in the differant phones. Or if 4G coverage is better than 3G in this area? Confused
