Verizon Says No Data Rollover Programs In Its Future
If you live in rural America, it's a different ball game. Where I am, VZW is king, ATT has SOME coverage here, but VZW is what works everywhere. Some people simply don;t have other options as Sprint and T-MO have zero rural coverage here.
Playing devil's advocate now....I can understand VZW in a way. They're not catering to the lowest common denominator. And in many ways, this makes sense. Macy's isn't trying to win Walmart people. BMW isn't try to convert Kia buyers. Why would VZW want to cater to customers who are on Virgin Mobile budget?
While we as US customers are paying too much for what we get, I do kind of understand where they're co...
I wouldn't compare AT&T to Walmart or KIA LOL. T-Mobile & Sprint yes but not Big Blue. They are more like Nordstrom & Audi with whom Macy's & BMW DO compete. I find in Montana & Idaho & most of the Pacific Northwest AT&T smokes Verizon.
GSM carriers smoke no CDMA carriers anywhere, except maybe metro areas. CDMA covers more than 99% of the country.
My wife and I traveled to Bear Paw, North Carolina for a weekend getaway. Our Sprint phones worked the entire trip, but we roamed on Verizon. The people who rented the cabin to us warned, "We hope you have Verizon, because AT&T loses coverage once you pass Ducktown."
I live near Chattanooga, but sometimes travel to rural areas. I've never seen a case around here where AT&T provided comparable coverage to even the worst CDMA provider. Basic access still matters in the cell phone world. After all, isn't that the main reason most of u...
If you want an example of poor network on Verizon go to Alta, Utah where AT&T works great and Verizon, not so much. Or go to Snowshoe WV's website and go under FAQ. They specifically call out AT&T as the best option there for service and say the other carriers are welcome to fix their networks but as of now they haven't.
For me switching to AT&T from Verizon came down to a couple factors, coverage and customer service. I get coverage everywhere I have traveled with AT&T and theirs works better in my home. Customer service was the BIG factor because of situations like Rollover Data. Verizon thinks of all of th...
I remember several years ago, Verizon blew the minds of the industry for RAISING costs for plans. They lost no customers.
I don't really see what all the carrier hate is all about. Obviously, everyone should go with what they like and what works for them. My rate is cheap and I get reliable service. I don't see them unwilling to compete either. They offer a comparable plan to the rest of the industry.
If enough customers left, they'd change their tune.
It's not going to happen.
If anything they will gain customers. "Who needs dumb gimmicks?"... I can already hear the commercials.
If the last 10-15 years is any indication, Verizon will do just what they said: lead not follow. Anyone who has been a wireless customer for that length of time can certainly tell you how big of a joke "Rollover" was.
It is literally a gimmick to get you to buy more than you need in order to raise that bottom line. It was good only in a pinch and only if you happened to hurdle over your limit on that blue moon occasion.
By the time I left ATT, I had accrued over 8000 rollover minutes. As other users have ...
