Re: WTH? T-Mobile Monthly 4g for me! Works well for me because I don't really use my phone for talking so I can get the 100min, 5Gb plan for $30/month. I just bought a T-Mobile phone off contract and I'm using it on AT&T until my contract is up in November.
So 100/month for 2Gb data and unlimited talk with Verizon. $45/month for straight talk with the same thing. So if you save $55 a month for 24 months you could buy a $1,320 phone off contract and break even. That's a darn good phone! I don't get how Verizon thinks they can charge these prices. Is anyone actually going to pay for this crap?
said by joe94395:I'm sure your question was rhetorical, but just in case, the answer is yes. Many have argued for some time that VZW is the most expensive wireless provider, yet it continues adding subs every quarter. I doubt that changes anytime soon. Even after subscriber growth levels off, shared everything plans are designed to make adding additional devices easier. So, sub growth will eventually decline, but it'll be offset by device growth.
