    Re: Current Verizon user, has AT&T network improved?

    Its all about licensed areas. Any carrier can only work with what they have purchased. A carrier with a 850 mhz has far more to work with than one with a 1900 frequency. It also depends how a...

    Re: The future of Unlimited Data

    Nearly every carrier has a certain amount of overage charges built into their yearly business model. Verizon and at&t see the future, and have removed limits on their voice and text. The one place...

    AT&T new marketing for 4G

    I wish the "Can you hear me now" guy was back. We need to go back to the old marketing to bring things back. More wasn't better according to at&t in the 3G era. Now their "4G" is in more places,...

    The future of Unlimited Data

    Cutting to the chase:

    After several communications with Verizon’s press team, they did give us a truly straight-up answer… and here it is:

    Re: The future of Unlimited Data

    With all of the recent posts, I still wonder where Verizon should be able to make overage charges? This is built into their business model for Wall Street. Verizon has never billed an "unlimited...

    Re: Current Verizon user, has ATT network improved?

    I can't speak for your local area, I only know the Western States. But if you travel, Verizon leads if you travel. It also depends on if its voice or data that most concerns you. Verizon has...

    Re: The future of Unlimited Data

    Verizon is expected to make a certain amount of "overage" revenue. That has dried up on the voice and text side. The only logical option for them is to go unlimited on the voice and texts, and...

    Re: AT&T new marketing for 4G

    In their new marketing campaign they are promoting that "faster is better" and that an iPhone 5 is faster on their 4G network is faster than Verizon. I wish they would clarify which 4G they are...

    Re: AT&T new marketing for 4G

    It all depends how you use your phone. If you are happy with a BB, then you usually have low data usage. I have yet to see a BB user who wishes to download alot of apps, or stream the latest movie....

    Re: The future of Unlimited Data

    Agreed. There is no current reason for Verizon (or att for that matter) to do so. Revenue is what builds towers, pays for backhaul, and most of all shows a profit. Carriers need to show an...

    That is very odd. The only reason I can see is that he may have placed a call to your phone, to assure the "touch" worked. Some of the screen protectors are tricky to install. Without other info,...

    Re: Sales vs safety

    Amplifiers are awesome, but they come with some detractors. My area recently had an amplifier that locked up a channel or two on a tower. The local Verizon techs were left with no alternative but...
  15. Re: can VZW legally stop allowing unlimited plans for EVERYBODY in a couple of years?
