Re: Verizon Sucks

My Wife would rather picnic in the recreation yard at Levinworth than
shop at Walmart.

Myself, I'm not bothered. A Good Price is a Good Price.

That's one factor, but not the only one. If everyone was concerned only
with price and said price determined customer satisfaction, Verizon would
probably be out of business.

Perhaps not in your own town... but how about nationwide?

You've gained access to a larger network.

Re: Verizon Sucks

My family loves it. We all have Verizon phones and we all talk to each other ALL the time for free. We get the lowest number of minutes per month (500 I think) and talk well over a 1,000.

And there are two cases involving insurance. You can have damage only
coverage or for maybe a dollar add extended warranty. If it is a
non-damage issue you can simply walk and say "do something about this"
and not incur any charge. Sometimes the CS person may not be properly
trained and tell you to call Assurion. I only had one case of that and
politely asked them to get out their operations manual and show me that
they weren't responsible for the extended warranty portion. Five minutes
later I was walking out with a "new" FRU.

But an important thing to consider is if you use your phone a lot like
me because most of my family and friends have VZW and no land lines is
IN network calling is "free". I would loose that. Also if you have a
smartphone 30 Mb/month is pretty much useless.

Re: Verizon Sucks

Depends on the Plan....

$45 gets you unlimited Voice, Unlimited Text, and Unlimited Data.
Verizon is WAY more

450 Minutes Talk - $40
450 Minutes Talk & Text - $60
450 Minutes Talk & Text & data - $90
Unlimited Talk & Text and data - $120

If you used over 1000 minutes and never did data and never texted and
were able to never go over 450 minutes due to friends and family, you
could save $5/mo.

If you used less than 1000 minutes, you could save $10 with the $30
Straighttalk plan, and still text and still get 30mb of data, which is
plenty if you just use those features occasionally.

Re: Verizon Sucks

we have 5 lines on our plan. We share 1400 minutes. We never have gone
over - most calls are to VZW users.

My line has data, we all have unlimited txt to anyone.

Our monthly is 143 I think.

Depends, I though it sounded too good to be true when I first saw wally
advertise this but they really don't have "unlimited data" and the
little bit you can use is carefully controlled by them. Totally
unsuitable for a smartphone.

The plan might be good for a light user. If you are like me and my
family and friends who use a cell for everything none of those plans
really fit since we would loose IN network calling so that would mean we
would all need to buy an unlimited plan which is way more expensive than
the family plan I have for example.
