Who cares? Who can afford their data & why put up with caps?

I know maybe some "data-grandfathered" die-hard VZW Customers may be happy about this roll-out but at this point for any new customers Verizon is a rip-off/scam for data. With up to $100 data add-ons PER LINE what new customer who has to pay these obnoxious rates & actually uses their phone for data would care about this? I hope they have miserable 2011 Q3 & Q4 numbers in protest of how they re-configured their data plans & implemented low caps & high costs. The $30 plan went from unlimited to 2GB & the price of the highest cost data plan went from $30 to $100 (333% increase!!) & even that rip-off plan has a cap now! I hope Sprint has a great end to 2011. I don't have Sprint, I have TMO & soon will join the also-dreaded Death Star but eve...
WOW learn your numbers before you spit incorrect thoughts out of your mouth. It's 2gb for 30, 5 gb for 50 and 10gb for 80( not 100 )

Everybody keeps talking about Data caps...

Verizon has Data caps now true.
But who is on Tired data?? 95% of people that have VZW have unlimited cuz they have had their plans before that cap came into effect(use WiFi) 🙄. If u want to get on VZW talk about how you can't unlock the phones or something else or how high they are 🙄
yes I do work for Verizon but...I have alot of friends who work for other providers and I have 2 that work overseas. so im not biased(Verizon sucx overseas)

On top of that we(Americans) are lucky, we are the only people that DONT have data caps. and we can text cross carrier some overseas carriers cant do that (NTT DoCoMo)

so lets quit talking about ehat we dont do and be happy at wat we do do 😕 (damn that sounds weird)
Everyone says how great VZW is on service. Well they themselves are "encouraging" users to use wi-fi at home or wherever possible because the network will overload. YES it is reliable, YES it is expensive but VZW rarely admits to their shortcomings an...
I've never actually seen someone argue FOR mediocrity and getting LESS for your money. Nicely done in a I-can't-believe-anyone-thinks-like-that kinda way.

Damn that was fast!!!!!

Just a little bit more than 8 months since LTE launched and 100 markets already! Wow!!! Verizon, always setting a fine example ATT can only strive to follow.
You're going to say the same thing about your 5GB limit...damn, that went fast!
