    I don't read all posts, but here is what I gather so far:

    1.Jumping Ships (Carriers) w/ fear that they will follow suit in the future. This to me very stupid comment. We all know future are always unpredictable, but what we know is that Competitions are good for laissez faire. There will always be new Carriers in US and new market will always compete to give better result to attract costumers to their brand. If Sprint follow suit, then I will jump to Charter Wireless. I will go to carriers that give the best result for me. Same with the death of retailers giants such as Circuit City, Best Buy, Mervyn, and etc; so beware Wireless Carriers. I am not attached to this thing as this is just luxury. I have razr maxx along with 4 other lines as they are affordable and Unlimited.

    2. You can move to whatever carriers you like if you are new to Verizon or a single phone owner with Verizon. Outside that and Verizon give the damn best price in the market today. They are not that dumb after all well that goes to the old execs or while the company still small cuz now it's pure idiotic so I hope they changed CEO or something .

    3. Other carriers charge you an upgrade fee too, just like what I posted earlier that even thought Verizon are the last carrier to charge upgrade fee, Verizon's phones are more expensive than their competitors for 2 years contract.


    Here are important things to consider:

    1. If your Monthly payment for your minutes are way cheaper than what they offer now then don't move as you are doing them a favor. (I think this what killed them in the first place, but who wants to pay more when the company play the loyalty card with us of which am very grateful.)

    2. If your company are partnering with Verizon and not with different carriers, then don't move as you end up paying more without company discount.

    3. I have these phone for a reliability purposes. This means that whenever am on call or having an emergency, I can make a call without getting cut or no signals trouble. Ask your friends that own a phone with different carriers to see if they are having such problem. If they don't have such problem, then move as you don't have unlimited anyways.

    I used to be able to hold off my data usage to 5GB as that's what I thought to be the "taboo cap" with my Bionic. Once I knew that it's not cap, I still able to use below 10GB like around 6 to 7 GB. Of course I don't use it to watch DVD/BD like movie as those thing will hog alot.

    [QUOTE="padawan0620"]This is just like when ATM cards came out. They were free at first then when people starting them heavily and basically "couldn't live without them" the banks knew they had us. The fees started coming and we accepted them (for the most part.) VZW saw that we "couldn't live without them" and realized "we have them right where we want them."


    Honestly, banks have always been crap. MOST credit unions won't do those types of fees, and if they do, they make up for it in other services such as lower rates, higher dividends, or other free services. Switch from banks, and you won't be near as shafted.

    For those that are trying to make war with other users. I am not lol don't get ridiculous! We must Unite against their greed! Why Blockbusters, slackers, Netflix, and Google Network stuff are pre-installed to our phone? They just want more money as this is what many carriers around the world are doing. I feel sorry that now we are so detached where we used to fight the so called Robber Barons and hailed Captains of Industry.

    Im sorry but if im paying 200$ a month for 3 lines i should be able to use my phone. My 3 phones together pull about 7 gigs a month. I dont want to have to worry about going over on a tiered plan.
