I think Starbucks is overrated, but yet I keep winding up there from time to time. Sure I can make a mean cup of coffee for only pennies.
I just wanted everyone to know that too Very Happy

So why do you continue to do business with them?

Agreed. Above average customer service and network. Horrible pricing. The power of marketing... *Shrug* What next? Politicians are scum? We should start a thread in the Lounge and call it obvious statements.

I have to disagree. They are rated the best carrier, which I believe to be true.

However, that doesn't mean they are an A+. To me, I'd grade them as a C student with others as worse, possibly even failing.

Yes. Being rated the best carrier is like being voted Most Charming Serial Killer or Least Mind Altering Narcotic. I wouldn't call it a badge of honor. ALL CARRIERS SUCK...SOME JUST SUCK BETTER.

The reason why I think verizon is overrated is because people think because they may have the largest coverage map and the most customers they have the best network across the US. False

Verizon drop 10,000 emergency 911 calls in january

Verizon changed the 30 day return policy to 14days and have the highest etf's

Verizon got rid of the annual upgrade. Surprised New phones are dropping left and right and in 3mths your current android will be surpassed. The iphone 5 is dropping in a few months what about current iphone 4 users.

Verizon ripped off millions of dollars in data fees from its customers. For something so stupid most users didn't know it was even happening

Verizon is always behind in phones and new technology. For Example:

Epik his point is that sprint is the only carrier you should have in this country. No matter how many times you prove him wrong he doesnt care. People should go with what works best for them.

Your retarted Sprint is not the best for everyone. Niether is verizon. Competition is important because it keeps the big carriers like verizon and att from getting out of hand. I always recomend verizon to people that travel a lot or live in the bonies because verizon may have better coverage there. If I have been proven wrong please go back and show me where im here to get info just like u. Just because someone says I was wrong does not mean they were right. Cool

" I always recomend verizon to people that travel a lot or live in the bonies because verizon may have better coverage there"

Verizon shouldn't get any credit for that either. Alltel leveraged itself as a rural carrier for years. They just had the misfortune of being consumed by Verizon. When I worked at Alltel they consistently chose to go to spots where the larger carriers were absent. Verizon's agreement in 2001 SHOULD have kept Alltel out of VZW's clutches, but they greased a few palms and likely bought a lot of politicians hookers to get it done.

iPhone 4 has a front facing camera. Verizon offered the hot spot feature before AT&T.

Oh yea the iphone does. Completely forgot about that little boger. I give them that. Thats still a whole six months after everyone else and most people are waiting for the iphone 5 or the thunderbolt. But is it wifi only like att? Can u use it over 3g like u can on Sprint or tmobile?

They had the hotspot before one of its competitors not a big deal. They had to have something I mean they are selling a 7mth old device. The same thing happenend when verizon finally got the Pre they put the hotspot on it first. The hotspot is not a big feature though most ppl dont use it anyway unless its free.

You can video chat over 3G with apps like Tango, but for FaceTime you need wifi. I've never used FaceTime cause I've only video chatted android people so I can't comment about the quality.

Ok, good. We have the reasons why you prefer to NOT use Verizon...

I'll give you the only reason I need to NOT use Sprint: It does not work at my place of employment or my apartment! ;)

This is fun!

DiamondPro

Mar 3, 2011, 4:40 PM
And thats a good reason. If you have tried Sprint and they have no service in your area go to whoever does. Same goes for verizon. No carrier has coverage everywhere. Cool

They should have been the first. That damned Saygus V Phone. Since that shady guy in Utah is nowhere to be found I choose to blame Verizon for keeping the V Phone an urban legend.

"America's most reliable network" does drop calls, and it most certainly drops down from 3G to 1x data. Far more than ATT dropped from 3G to EDGE. Verizon is so overhyped.

Oh BS! you don't know that maybe your personal experience but noone is taking your word for anything.

It's called real world, first hand experience.

To be specific. My LG Ally dropped a call yesterday, and data dropped to 1x today. Again, real world, not some brainwashing Verizon advertisement.

your world your experience...you are the type who could port to sprint and within 9 months be hating on their phones and network. You just like to bitch.
...
Jayshmay

Mar 3, 2011, 11:56 PM
If data stayed on 3g and didn't drop to 15yr old technology 1x I wouldn't have anything to bitch about.

Or if the real world matched what Verizon claims about being so "reliable" I wouldn't have anything to bitch about.

What Verizon claims, and the real world are 2 very, very different things,...hence the usage of the word OVERHYPED.

Oh.

Well it's been just over a month now and so far I am happy with it. The touch screen doesn't go wacky when it's plugged in like the POS Moto Droid did. No problems with the keyboard so far.

I know a month isn't very long, but so far I am happy with it.

There, there... Getting a wee bit defensive aren't we? I mean...this IS Jay after all. His credibility is sound. He didn't ALWAYS hate AT&T. It was just those latter months. If there were a reason for him to give VZW some credit I am sure he would. Of COURSE he is basing his opinions of HIS own experience. Who else's would he?

I was just playin with Jay sucks his terrible experience with Verizon, something I want him to think about. Laughing

In addition, I would like you to know that a sentence is supposed to start with a capital letter, shortbusser. While I am trying to teach the uneducated, you need to know that the letter "I" should be capitalized as well.

I just want everyone to know that is what I think, and to think about it.
