    Well, bad news if VZW decides just to pull the plug on unlimited rather than fight the FCC.

    The whole intention behind shared data was profitability. Why would this be any different? Verizon and Comcast are the greediest companies I've ever dealt with.

    I'd drop them but I haven't found another company that has the coverage I need. May just go back to a basic phone.

    I tried that route, and it didn't go so well. In fact, less than 24 hours.

    If I had the choice, I would've stayed with Sprint. They didn't offer 4G in my area, but IMO, they appreciate their customers. I didn't have a single issue with their customer service, which goes a long way.
