Re: Oh well,

Verizon will eventually be in a world of hurt if wireless tanks. Let's face it, smartphone adoption is maturing, and data prices are in the stratosphere. The market is likely to bring those down, with T-Mobile going unlimited, and Sprint refusing to drop it.

I can't imagine anyone voluntarily signing up for Share Everything. Verizon is essentially double the cost of Sprint and T-Mobile now.

Maybe Verizon doesn't want customers at all.

Verizon Wireless(not Verizon) Certainly does not force anyone to use their shared plans. Anyone can walk and go to a different carrier. If I lose my unlimited with my LTE phone with Verizon Wireless, they won' be forcing me to a shared plan. I will just pick another carrier.

But that's my point, any upgrades require you to move to a Share Everything in your Wallet plan, and I don't think anyone would voluntarily choose that.

No network is worth double the price. And VZW is doing just that now, forcing you to pay the unsubsidized price for a new phone to keep unlimited, or go to a gouging plan.

Verizon and Verizon Wireless may be separate companies, but clearly, they've shown which one they care about and expect to fuel their future growth.

That's what I did. I was on the Sprint sliver (450 min unlim text and data) after taxes and the 10 up charge for the smartphone with an 18% corp discount). I was near 90.00 per month.

I now have an unlocked Galaxy Nexus on Tmo with the 30.00 prepaid. It works great and have better service then I did with Sprint.

People are having to get creative and decide what they want. If FIOS keeps doing this then it's bye bye to.
