    The smoke still hasn't settled on the nuclear bomb that Verizon's CFO Fran Shammo dropped yesterday, but there is now a new way to express your frustration. There is now an online petition to stop Verizon from eliminating unlimited data plans for their customers. It is over at Change.org and we have included a link below for you. One could easily make the argument that even if millions of people sign the petition, Verizon may still follow through with their plans to "axe" unlimited data plans, so what point would their be in signing it.

    However, even if that is true, one of my favorite quotes from Wayne Gretzky, the famous hockey player, seems appropriate. He said, "100% of the shots you don't take, don't go in." To put it in perspective, you never know what might happen in life if you try, but you absolutely do know what will happen if you don't try... nothing! Now is your chance to be a part of an avalanche that may make a difference.

    Here is your chance to let your voice be heard!

    Without unlimited data i will be moving to Sprint. Hopefully there will be a way to flash my Gnex to work on Sprint but either way Verizon will lose my business if they follow through with this change.. But they wont care i have only been a client (on auto payments) for 8 years... no biggie..

    Gettin' fired up music!

    Some folks may not be fans of this type of music, but the lyrics seemed rather appropriate to this thread, so I thought it worth sharing: (also, don't worry... the lyrics of this particular song are not inappropriate. I double checked before posting this. In fact, the words themselves are surprisingly inspirational!)


    Here's the lyrics, since the video doesn't have subtitles:

    I never sign online petitions, but I sure did with this one! I might be able to get my whole family to sign up as well.

    I think we should do a battle of the bands with Verizon. It's the only way to settle this! :angry:
