    Our two 2 year contacts are up. If I don't pick out new phones I'm subject to a $30 per line surcharge. So why stay?

    Sprint, for instance has better looking plans. Their free phone is a Samsung Galaxy S LTE with ice cream sandwich. Good phone?

    Anyone have experience switching to our from Verizon?

    I came from AT&T as my Carrier. I like the idea of SIM cards, but *HATED* how GSM phones cause RF interference in nearby speakers: computers, TV, speakerphones, etc.
    If you work in a technical company, everybody looks around for the clown who didn't turn off his GSM phone in a meeting as soon as some speaker in the room starts emitting those annoying bips.
    And sometimes there are many clowns in the room.
    bip bip bip bip bippity bip bip I AM AN ANNOYING GSM PHONE FROM A SUB PAR CARRIER bippity bippity bip.
    LOL.

    Here's to my well-behaved CDMA phone!

    Are you talking about the $30 upgrade fee that begins April 22nd? If so Sprint's fee is actually more.

    The only reason I haven't switched is my unlimited data plan.

    Honestly if sprint does have a TD lte network where I'm living in 2014 I wouldn't even consider staying on Verizon, too pricey.

    Justin 82 is right guys and girls! We should all take it cause hey, you pay for the best! Verizon can break into your home at night and take whatever they want, and if you don't like it, then go to T-Mobile! Thank heavens there's people like that out there to keep the rest of us in check.

    I could get Razr Maxx for around $250 now and avoid the $30 VZW upgrade fee, or I could wait for the Maxx to drop to below $99 (like the Bionic is right now at $50) and pay VZW the $30.
    I think I'll wait... :)

    If you have to upgrade and pay the 30 dollar upgrade fee when it comes why not do the trade in deal that verizon offers. Thats if your phone still has value of course. I know people will say they keep their old phone just in case but 9 out of 10 never need to use their old phone.
