    Hmmm... No petition has ever been taken seriously that included so many capitalization errors. Unfortunately, when dealing with big companies like Verizon, nothing written like that will even get past the virtual "front desk" when you go to submit it. Professionalism will get you much more yardage when it comes to someone actually paying attention to your claim. The other side of this coin is that many people, like myself will look at it and realize (because of the aforementioned grammatical errors) that it won't go anywhere and not bother signing it..

    I like what you are trying to do here though.. Maybe just proofread it before you take it to big red?

    gonna have to agree, great idea, but somewhat flawed execution.

    I do find it a hassle that we cannot bring our phones out of country without roaming or whatever. I have yet to go through this, but the idea of it is just a headache enough.

    Signed. Aside from the unprofessional format, I think it's still better then nothing. At least he is doing something about versus complaining about it and doing nothing.

    I too signed it but if it makes them more money you could have a zillion signatures and they could care less.I signed it though cause none means "hey roll over me and rip me off".At least now while they roll us all over you can hear screams.=]

    Negative churn is what will really convince them.

    The only way to get the point across to VZW is to show them with your wallets. Leave them for another carrier that continues to offer unlimited data. Otherwise you will contribute to the problem.

    AMEN!

    Sheep will pay. They always do. Until the sheep stop, Verizon has no reason to listen to the noise.

    if they do get rid of their unlimited data plans then they will just bite themselves in the ass. Too many companies out there offer unlimitied DP for $99 or much less. You'll be locked in to the unlimited till your contract expires. Then just threaten to change phone companies

    noone forces anyone to sign a contract..... so to then sign up for that contract under your own free will.... no 'ripoff' found.

    Why doesn't someone just make a petition that says "Verizon shouldn't charge me anything because free is better than paying" Same thing

    you want a service, you pay for it, if you don't want it, you don't pay it... pretty simple how capitalism works, isn't it.

    That's why I went from T-Mobile to Verizon. Better 3g and better reception. And yes, I am paying quite a bit more but I'm happier with the service.

    Unlimited plans cause strange carrier behavior. Examples from the past and present include charging for downloading photos, charging for Skype usage, general bans on VoiceOverIP usage, and locking out 3rd party navigation tools.

    Personally, I think the quicker we get to reasonably-priced pay-by-the-byte plans the better off we will be. This doesn't mean I want to pay more. It means, I think we will see more rational pricing once this happens.

    My prediction: all carriers will move to a pay-by-the-byte model within five years. My second prediction: most people will pay less per month as a result.

    Show me something that says Verizon is working towards ditching unlimited plans.
