Switching to Sprint
When my contract is up, I'm switching to Sprint. I have a pretty sweet deal with VZW now and it won't be going away, but I can't stay with a company that supports inflating prices this much. In no way does this save any user any money, nor does it give them any new options.
Well it's been a full year since ATT murdered unlimited and rendered smartphones useless. It doesn't seem to have effected their subscriber base.
good luck with sprint they SUCKED in my area, I got the Commando on verizon and I'm going NO WHERE!
Some time next year, I imagine Sprint will apply tiered data caps as well. First AT&T, now Verizon, Sprint next.
In the coming years, there will be no such thing as unlimited data access on any service, wireless or hard-line, any more. It will al...
If you're with Verizon now you'll be grandfathered in so theres no reason to care.
Don't think Sprint wont pull this crap either. They may give you all you can eat WiMAX at the moment but the coverage stinks anyway. If you think they wont implemen...
It is good to see a person of honor. Me personally, as much as I detest Verizon as long as I have the plan I want I could care less. Great to see you standing by your principles though. Nice job!
Sprint is next to end unlimited options. Their network shows it more and more each day. This is nothing new in the world. The US is last to offer unlimited data option. If you have it, be happy. If not, get over it.
On the other hand, Verizon is a...
I have sprint, i love it , customer service, payment arrangements are awesome!, service is awesome ( espically in doors when tmobile drops off )
i have a really good price,
the apps that come bundled with the EVO like navigation is AWESOME!!! ...
In defense of tiered data
VZW's pricing structure does suck, however I'm in support of tiered data, I've still got my $30 unlimited data from AT&T, and I'm never giving it up. However I usually blow through 5-7 GB a month, mainly cause I watch lots of hulu and stream lots of pandora on my Inspire 4G, I don't care about my usage because I'm unlimited, I usually just leave my wifi off since I usually get way longer battery life with it off, I could manage my data, but I don't care to. Now if everyone was like me the network would continue to be bogged down and slow, that's why tiered data is a good idea. There have been several studies showing that the average smartphone user goes through about 500mb a billing cycle, so most people on AT&T don't every touch their 2GB. ...
didn't you see the rule that CLEARLY states "no intelligent comments allowed on phonescoop! EVER!"
On the T-Mo comment, yes. Slowing speeds down to 2.5G as T-mobile does is an excellent strategy, as fully unlimited access is still provided. Also, with the 5 Gigabyte feature costing $50.00 on Verizon with their new tiered pricing, for only $10.00 m...
Question about 4g Hopspot
I thought the hot spot feature was only 2gb currently correct me if I am wrong? Also if I am I know I have the free promo now what will happen will it expires ?
I have no idea what you are talking about, but I'm going to wager a guess - when your free promo expires, you will need to pay for what you previously received for free.
Just a guess.
I don't understand....
Why some of you think that people who use less than 1gb of data a month should pay the same as someone who uses 40gb a month? A cell phone and data plan is not a God given right...it is a business, and as such, you should be charged for what you actually use!
When a company sells you UNLIMITED, THAT is what you are paying for & what you deserve!! If you choose to use 100MB or 100GB, it is your choice. They are free to charge what they want & change plans & then people are also free to leave to go to anoth...
This is very true and something I totally agree with, however, on the one month that I tried to use as much data as I could, I used 1.5GB. On a usual basis, I use about 300MB - 700MB. I don't stream anything so yes I should pay for what I use which is...
