Lost my iPhone 4s over the weekend. Thought about it for a couple of days and decided to pay the early termination fee and dump my verizon for my phone service. I'm tired of paying through the roof for data fees. Raising that fee AGAIN is exactly what verizon did with their family share plans.
I'm going to go buy me a Samsung Galaxy s3 at retail and signup for $35 or $40 per month monthly plan from Sprint and get all the unthrottled 4G data downloards I want with no silly 2 year committment.
As a result of this decision, I also thought I'd sell my verizon stock...which I did on Monday...and invest the proceeds in S...which on did on Tuesday. That move has already payed off! Heck, its already paid for the cost of the Galaxy s3 that I'm going to buy this weekend.
I have Sprint for my primary isp connection at my home office and it is awful. The 4G was promised to be 3mb - 6mb speed and it has NEVER been that. At best it is 1.75 MB and frequently 1.5 mb. I am having to complain through the FCC in order to break my contract.
If it worked as advertised it would be great but it even approaches its advertising.
There's a reason you pay Verizon more for service. It's simply better service, better coverage, better customer service, problem resolution. The cheapest plan is not always the cheapest. You get what you pay for.
You are so right! I pay for "unlimited data" and I'll get "unlimited data". Much better than overpaying for less data at higher price than unlimited. Common sense is not so common these days it appears. Glad that I understand it. Good luck with your future...if you have one:)
Yeah! Well,sometimes you can get the same thing for less. In my area, sprint and T-moble work just fine thank you. Why the he!! would I want to keep paying and paying and paying for more data from a rip off joint like Verizon and it's new "Family Share" gimick? I like the idea of monthly pay and unlimited download. It's not close to the cost at Verizon and the service is just as good in my locale. I've got better things to spend money on rather than just handing it over to Verizon.
Huh? Bump! That is dumb. I'll assume you think this is a lousy propostition. You be wrong. I have a VZ iPhone 4s and my monthly charge for the minimum talk, unlimited text and 4G of data with hotspot is over $100/mo. Now that's dumb! and I won't be a verizon customer when when my contract is up. That family share plan is a farce. Just a price increase in desguise! I'll be heading to Sprint also and on the prepay monthly plan at half the cost.
