3) as for switching to "show them" - gadgetrants has it right...you think they are sad to see a few unlimited heavy data users go? lol, please. i can switch to sprint or T-Mo in my area, and i'll have unlimited access to no signal in a bunch of areas where i get good VZW (sometimes even 4g). (t-mo is particularly laughable in tucson)[/QUOTE]
Speaking for myself, I really don't care if I "show them" or not. If someone has a better deal when my contract is up I'm going to leave. I'd rather not because I like their service overall. The part I don't like is the lack of a decent data signal and the high price of having no data. And that's enough to get me to leave. I know they aren't putting another dime into 3g and that's fine as long as they expand 4g a few more miles. They are so close yet so far.
