OK Verizon Time To Step Up or Lose Me To Sprint.

After reading the following article, I'm ready to deep six Verizon. Get the unlock code for my phone and be done with VZ. The following is an article on Sprint $99 Everything Plan.

This is good news!

I am pretty sure this is going to help VZ bring in more new customers. Now that VZ and Sprint are to offer unlimited plans, it is time for AT&T to come to the table as well. It has been a long time coming for the nationwide carriers to offer plans like this that are not regional specific.
This is unbelievable! Unlimited minutes were only offered by regional carriers like Metropcs and Cricket. I think Sprint offering unlimited minutes through their Boost prepaid service convinced Verizon to jump into that lucrative market. Who's next? A...

I called my Verizon rep, in my local newspaper they had said that the voice and data network was "unlimited". So I thought what a deal! That was until I talked with Verizon. First the deal is $99 for unlimited talk, but the data is that crappy Web 2.0 thing and limited. If you own a Pocket PC like I do, this plan is not for you. In fact if you want unlimited voice, data and messaging for a Pocket PC your looking at $149 plus all their hidden fee crap. Forget about it.

The $99 dollar offer does not include unlimited text messaging either. So here's the real deal.

The $99 dollar plan actually looks like this.

Main plan $99.00
Messaging 10.00
Insurance 5.00
Hidden fees Varies
Taxes Varies state by state.

😡 On top of the fact that the pricing is obsurd for everything, you cannot use any discounts to reduce the total amount per month you pay. Though my business I have a 22% discount that is applied to my bill, but I was told I CANNOT use it with thes...

And the cycle repeats....

This is being posted on all the announcements today regarding the unlimited voice plan.

Upon my research, which I generally do a lot of before writing a review, I found this cute little snippet (thank you web archive) - http://web.archive.org/web/20040201235921/www .whysprint.com/thenetworkdifference/?refurl=u hp_personal_promo_wlnp_20031124

That snippet is a post on Sprint's site back in 2004 claiming to be the most reliable network in America. (and why not..the other nationals were just starting up)

The claim states a phone is only a good as the network its on. (Does this sound familiar?)

Now, web archive is not letting me past the zip code field to confirm this, but I am pretty sure that Sprint's plans have had an Unlimited ta...

Unlimited calling but cap on data?

I realize that Verizon's unlimited BroadbandAccess always had a hidden cap of 5 GB bandwidth per month, but you'd think they'd move to true unlimited on the data side along with the unlimited calling announcement?
Well it is a good idea because before there were a list of retricted activities that you could not use broadband access for such as VoIP or stream audio or video. Now instead of telling you what you can and cant do, they are saying if you do somethin...
Verizon's cap was limited..

at&t recently put a fully visible 5GB cap on laptop connect data.
