    We are locked for 2 yrs as the wife just got a phone and I upgraded to a new Rezound.

    that said, in 2 years, we will reevaluate based on the market and what VZW is doing. I am the only one on Unlimited data from all our family, the rest did the double the data (4G) so they won't be going anywhere. However, I'll be a free agent in 2 yrs and will pick the plan and carrier to what works best for the wife and I.
    Don't get your tightie whities in a bunch if you don't like my humor or get offended when I skip putting smiley faces all over. IF you cannot handle online comments and get bent out of shape, go home.

    As long as I'm not forced onto one of the shared plans (right now I have a single line with 450 minutes and 1,000 texts) and I can keep my 4 gb for $30 (4G double data promo), I'll stay. Somehow I have a feeling that this is going to be a big "If" around 16 months from now when my contract ends. :what:

However, in two years when I have to scratch my signature on a new contract, Verizon can bite me. Verizon had a great thing going until they took away our unlimited data and the statement Verizon gave about the reason why, just shows how much they are about the money and not the consumer. It's just not worth the money anymore. I will either be going with a carrier that still has unlimited data in 2 years or a pay as you go phone. Verizon is out of control!
    I don't understand why everyone thinks they should get to keep unlimited data forever just because they got it when they signed a 2 year contract. Verizon has to honor that 2 year contract but after that they can do whatever they want to do. Do I like the fact that I will be losing unlimited data in 2 years no I don't but I also knew it was coming, tho I figured ATT would be the first to do it. The cell phone companies never dreamed people would use the amount of data that some use on their phones and if they had they would have never offered unlimited data to start with. You can change companies but you have to look at more then what data package they offer you have to look at service area and what kind of signal you get in your area. For me Verizon is the best and has the lest amount of problems where I live so there is no way I will leave them for another company that gets crappy coverage in my town. Another point just because sprint and tmoble offer unlimited data now doesn't mean that will last forever they will do a way with it one day too and then will they let you grandfather it in and if they do for how long.

    I looked around at Sprint, AT&T, and T-mobile. While all three of them are around the same price. They are still over what I pay now for my 4 line unlimited data. So, as long as I can keep my plan I'm staying.

    I hate to lose unlimited but I'm more disgusted at the gig packages being offered in the family share plan. I think that is what's really bad here. Way overpriced. 30$ unlimited to 50$ for 1 gig. That's bad!!!

    I do have to agree with that the share everything plans are crazy and need to be rethought imo. Forcing people to take unlimited voice and text not everyone needs unlimited text and voice but would like to use 2 or 3 gb of data a month and don't have a problem paying a fair price for the data they use. People will be going over the data and will be upset because they will try to get everyone in the family to collectively stay under 1 gb and that will be hard to do. ATT has a 300 mb data plan and I don't see how people stay under that they have to be using wifi all the time. Well there are a lot of places I go that don't have wifi and I didn't pay for a smart phone to be limited on when I can use it.

Once the contract on my Razr expires, I'm moving to a different (as of yet, undetermined) company. I, for one, am sick of the rising costs for less value, the lies regarding software updates and hardware, their proprietary network, and the crummy selection of locked-down phones. To make matters worse, they have dropped all of their loyalty rewards, and there is now no incentive to stay with them. I refuse to be locked into another 2 years of it.
    Unlimited was the only reason most people stuck around, unless it came down to how well the service was compared to others here. At&t & Verizon are neck & neck in my area of Oregon. Verizon just doesn't offer anything good anymore & that's a shame, but I understand they have to make money, just not off me.

    I am halfway into my cycle; have used only 200mb's of data & I am currently being throttled on 3g iPhone 4s at 0.72 mb/s down & 0.92 mb/s up & it's 6:16pm PST I know we're being throttled.

    Don't worry, in time the others will see the light & go for a better deal. I wish I was in Seattle or Portland and got wifi practically everywhere.

    Wow, just wow, I'm laughing my azz off at all the people who think that 60 gigs is a lot. They must not have seen my posts about data usage in the past.
    I pay an extra 30 each month for the hotspot feature and I'll use it as I please. I also use a VPN so my internet providers cannot see what I'm doing (I'm prepared, and out of reach of the copyright crackdown that's coming, ha!)
    I will not be getting another subsidized phone.
    I will be among the last unlimited data users on Verizon.
    If I want a new phone, I'll get an almost new one from someone who got it subsidized and now wants yet another, latest, greatest.
    I have a good tower near my home and I'm never throttled while I use 4G.
    OMG, I just love watching all the latest greatest movies for free in 720 or 1080P (my choice) w/DTS sound on my media player, especially since I get to watch them a couple of weeks before the same movies are even released on DVD and Blue-ray. I don't even need to pay for HBO or Showtime anymore, everything good from there is available as well.
    T.D. Rocks!!
    I like to watch debates, especially when they're fair!
    Another definition of ghey: When a self appointed "referee" decides to join a "debate" (that's okay) but then decides to end/close the "debate", only because both sides have valid points & he/she just can't win and/or doesn't want to hear the other opinions any longer...

    Sorry, I only check/subscribe to threads that I've started, not all the ones I've posted in , PM me instead.

    Sounds like it might happen:
