    Just buy your phones off contract from now on. As long as you keep your devices in good shape it is feasible to sell the old device on craigslist for a few hundred bucks and use that cash on an unsubsidized device. It's still more expensive by a few hundred but it beats paying $600 for a phone.

    For those of you thinking the grass is greener on other networks think again. VZ does have the best network, the coverage is truly amazing. Some of my coworkers that have at&t get very poor signal in our building, and that's even with the amplifier thingy on the ceiling, what a joke!

    You gotta pay to play!

    I get a Vzw discount through my job. That, combined with my unlimited data, means I'm sticking with them. Ehh, for an evil, soulless, corporate empire I do get great reception out of them. Could be worse, could be AT&T

    Verizon has great coverage they are always expanding the network. Guess what all of this costs money. If you care about none of these go to Sprint.

    Definately!

    My contract ends in two weeks, I can't wait to drop Verizon!! Their service is way too expensive, and their customer service really sucks.

    Virgin Mobile here I come!!

    I can't really remember one bad time experience I've had with VZW customer service. As far as price I can't say on the share everything plan I still have unlimited. My price right now is as good as it was with ATT. Once they finally take my unlimited I may change. But I will pay full price for a phone to keep my unlimited data. They may change on that also, but until they do I'm sticking with VZW because of the network.

    I agree with you that it takes profits to reinvest in the best network and upgrades to remain the best. However, I have to look at it from a financial standpoint. Here's my situation:

    5 lines on Family Share, 4 iPhones and my Thunderbolt. After taxes $255 per month. That includes 1400 anytime minutes, Friends and Family 10 non-VZW numbers, unlimited text/pix and unlimited data. On average, we use between 15 and 20 GB per month of data between the 5 lines. I spoke to a nice VZW call center rep, and we did the math. With 15 GB month on the new plan is about $375 BEFORE taxes. That means we're looking at about $415 to $420 per month after taxes. That is an increase of $165 per month. Do I love the VZW network, absolutely, will I miss it, absolutely, is it worth the jump in price of $165 per month, heck no, I'm on a budget as it is, and our 5 lines do share in the bills, but that's just way too much to stay unfortunately. Plus I had a very good 3-1/2 years with VZW as an employee and loved it a lot.

    I called Sprint last week one night and discussed pricing. With 5 smartphones with Sprint with unlimited data will cost about $255. So, once each phone is eligible to upgrade, we'll be porting out. My phone is first, so I hope there's a good Android phone available on the Sprint network. I'm looking right now preliminarily at the Samsung Note 2.

    That's my dilemma and the reasons I must leave VZW in the next few months.

    Buy new phones outright and keep your plan.

    I contemplated the switch back to Sprint, but their coverage is nowhere near as good.
    I drive a truck and coverage is everything. I use too much data to go to the share everything plan. I don't want to drop $600 plus per phone, but I'm left with no other good option. Even if I restrict my data the smaller share everything plans are more expensive. We gave 5 lines with 2 smart phones. 1400 minutes $99.99, $9.99 extra per line, and $30 each for the two unlimited data lines. We don't use but half of our minutes as most calling is m2m, friends and family circle, or nights and weekends. We will be dropping at least 1 line and possibly 3 depending on what my parents want to do.

    I'm loyal to Android but not to VZ. When my contract is up, whoever has the best deal wins my business. It's just that simple.

    I hate Android. They've made it impossible to use without being an Android expert. I won't leave Verizon because out here there's only VZ and that worthless AT&T with very little coverage from them. Sprint would be nice but they don't get off the beaten path. I do believe I may resort back to a simple cell phone. All these smart phones have become stupid phones and if your not into the social networking crap your wasting your money. I like to browse the net and send messages but I don't want to share everything I'm doing with everyone and I don't give a rat's backside what everyone else is doing. I would love to have a Windows based phone with a physical keyboard. Android has become so cluttered and non user friendly I just want to take my D4 and use it for target practice. ICS was a worthless update and should be removed ASAP.
