    I really hope SoftBank puts some of that amazing Japanese ingenuity into the US, I'm hoping their acquisition of sprint will bear fruit and sprint will be able to start dumping money into their network, Sprint is OK where I live, just not as good as VZW... and I'm not ready to give up my unlimited with VZW even if I have to start buying my phones 6 months later from other sources. The coverage is just too good. regardless of price.

    What I'm really hoping happens is that Sprint and T-mo start a huge price war that causes ATT and VZW to take notice and fight back...

    If they offered more realistic data caps and stopped pushing data hungry apps and cloud storage I'd switch, until then... I'm keeping BOTH my unlimited lines.

    I've been with Verizon for a long time and plan to move on soon ... I've not given Sprint any consideration for 2 reasons: 1 - their coverage isn't great in my area and, 2 - they're CDMA, as @grenefroggie already pointed out, this limits phone choices (and I'm sick of a Nexus device not being an option for me! Even if big red (by some miracle) decided to carry another Nexus device, I wouldn't touch it after that abomination that was the Galaxy Nexus!).
    So, while I am more than happy to see another carrier try to woo consumers, I just hope it creates more competition! T-Mobile is my first choice for my next carrier, so hopefully whatever Sprint does T-Mobile will decided to match it or, even better, best it

    It won't create competition with Verizon, though. Sprint, nor T-Mobile, can touch Verizon, and I wouldn't imagine Verizon is worried.

    This. T-Mo has mostly been hurting Sprint and AT&T. VZW in Q1 reported 4.4% year-over-year subscriber growth....or an increase of over 4M subscribers in 1 year.

    I don't think the decision lies with Verizon, Yank. We should be clear that Google chose not to offer Nexus phones to Verizon after they (VZ) totally screwed up the launch of Google's flag ship, and supported the launch with a non-existent advertising budget. Net result, Google no longer does Verizon CDMA phones. They (VZ) have only themselves to blame.

    I didn't think it would ... But as Verizon becomes more and more arrogantly confident the more I grow tired of their antics!

    That being said, Google rarely if ever hypes their Nexus devices....so I don't think the blame, in this instance, lands all on Verizon's shoulders. That and the Verizon branded Nexus device was a piece of crap imo. Oh well, it is what it is.

    But you gotta admit, at the time Google could've put the name Nexus on a dog turd and sold half a million units.
