    Should I stay with Verizon?

    My Droid 2 refuses to charge. The cable won't stay in. It's causing me ridiculous stress and I need a new phone. I am currently in my upgrade window, but that's meaningless to me thanks to the new tiered pricing and the inability to grandfather me in to the new plan. This has left me very sour with Verizon, as 2gb limitations are ridiculous in this era of mobile computing, and I currently have 450m Unlimited text and data, for 59.99. Waving the 30 dollar data fee. I'd like to retain this, but it seems I will not be able to, and will be forced to go to the new plan for over 80 dollars a month...

    ...unless I go with Sprint.

    Currently Sprint has some extremely poor options for QWERTY phones, with no decent offerings in sight for me. Which is the only thing keeping me from instantly switching to them. They have the Epic 4g, and almost 2 year old phone, as their most high tech, modern qwerty option, which is just too unfortunate for me. Though having unlimited data, and the Photon 4G~ among other options is making me consider dropping my qwerty convenience and drop Verizon for good.

    I am highly interested in the Droid 4. I don't know this forum's take on this product just yet. If it's rootable, fun to use, worth it... however it looks like a thinner, sleeker version of the phone I already know and love(d?). I wouldn't mind upgrading to it, but is it worth it to pay more for it? Will the 4G just make it that much easier to hit the 2gb cap? Should I just say eff it and go to Sprint? I need to go to an important business trip this weekend, and I need to choose today where to go. The Sprint store, or the Verizon store and get a new phone...

    I just, have no idea what to do...

    I feel your pain..... I've been with Verizon for a long time and the new plans don't align well with my funds. For me it really boils down to if I believe their service is better than the other providers in the area. I have some family that is currently with Sprint and they seemed happy...... until we started messing around and doing speed tests, and call quality tests side by side..... I truly believe that Verizon has the best network, I just don't think it justifies the expanded cost when they were already more than the rest of the networks out there.... But the bottom line for me right now is that I do want to stay with Verizon because of the network.

    Everyone I know with the D4 absolutely loves it!

    Does anyone who knows or works with Verizon know if I can get my plan grandfathered in? I was told July 7 was the deadline, but I find out Im a damn week late? This is breaking my heart. There has to be something I can do, because as it stands... I'll be abandoning the Droid lineup, and Verizon due to this unfair play. I was told I'd have unlimited, and would keep it as long as I stayed on my plan. Unless I watch these blog sites like a hawk, at no time did a Verizon wireless rep ever tell me as a customer this deadline would happen. Someone has to give me something~ I like the Droid, I like the network and I like this forum~ but I won't have neither of the three at this rate. :<

    I just used an upgrade on my family share program. I kept my unlimited data on my new Razr. Good luck if you go with Sprint as their coverage is horrible. I have used my Verzon phones in China, Canada all across the US with zero issues. If you travel I would suggest you be careful of Sprint not good coverage roaming etc.

    The new plans were all over the news, CNN, etc and have been all over the internet for months. Most of us agree that this sucks but take some personal responsibility here.

    Just call vzw and find out... and tell em to talk to a supervisor if they refuse then tell em to grandfather it or cancel it straight up. Att gives 5gb for 50 bucks that's not too bad I'd go there... Or get a used d3 off ebay or sumn

    Yes you can keep your plan but you have to pay full price for the phone.

    Wow! Major entitlement mentality there. Just buy a D4 off ebay or craigslist. They only cost $300. Verizon has the best service you can buy, you will be sorry you switched just because you had to buy a new phone.
