    Thanks!

    As for the lkngm I've noticed that it seems to be forum specific...some have that feature, some don't.

    That should say "liking"...for some reason, my Sig on this tablet stays put and covers some of the text on the third line. Only on this, doesn't happen on my Bionic.

    I'm betting its a JB compatibility issue with tapatalk. Happens to me on my Nexus on occasion.

    While I commend you on sticking it to verizon is this actually the best idea? then again if all of us with unlimited data started doing this it would certainly show them.

    Honestly, if everyone with unlimited did that, they would probably just say it proves their point why they needed to do away with unlimited plans.

    I would say you make a good point if losing unlimited was still up in the air. Since it is gone, and lets be honest, not coming back why the he|| not? :icon_ devil:

    I have the meaningless unlimited plan grandfathered. Regardless of what this pin head says there IS a difference. And to my fellow users also grandfathered you know Verizon will stick it to us just a matter of time. That's how Verizon rolls.

    I'll keep my unlimited data as long as I can. I've never gone over 450 minutes, and I've never exceeded 1000 texts, so for THOSE two things to be unlimited is meaningless to me. If/when I'm forced out, I'll figure out my best option at that time.

    Technically....unlimited data plans are still here....you just have to be grandfathered in and not use upgrades anymore. Or in my case......I have a 3 line family plan with unlimited data on the main line. I will upgrade the other lines...and just switch one to the main line.

    But yea....this guy is smoking some strong stuff to say unlimited doesnt mean anything. I have a Netflix account, web browsing, Tune In Radio app, Youtube, Facebook that says otherwise. When I use them regularly....I can hit 20GB - 30GB easy. I upgraded my phone line to unlimited talk n text before these share plans went in effect because I wound up going over it more than I planned.

    I remember when the argument was we have to get rid of unlimited because of bandwidth would become restricted. Well funny ever since this share everything data plan came out and 4g has expanded to a lot of areas, Verizon decides we'll start HomeFusion that will give 4g customers home internet for a nominal price of course. So if the bandwidth was not there for us to keep unlimited data then where is this bandwidth coming from to give everyone with 4g internet at home as well as 4g internet on all there devices? Sounds like Verizon just wants to get paid twice for the same internet you already had as in 4g hotspot for instance. When it comes to grandfathered unlimited plans, Craigslist is your friend when needing to buy another phone.

    SO let me see if I understand his argument... We used to pay $30 a month for Unlimited. Now we pay $30 a month for 2GB and have to share that 2GB with other phones in the plan, and that is somehow to *my* benefit? LOL

    This is why my GF and I just switched to Sprint a few days ago. F Verizon.
