VIDEO: i LOVE verizon!
 
seriously, 10x better than sprint ever was for me. when i signed up back in june i screwed up and only took 700 minutes between my wife and i. i learned it wasn't enough but was afraid to upgrade due to loosing my unlimited data which i was grandfathered into in june. well i just talked to verizon and as long as i keep a smartphone i will not loose unlimited. so i went ahead and took the 1400 minute plan for only $16 more a month with my employee discount. yes im paying more than sprint but i swear the customer service is top notch in my book. :notworthy:

with the new plan i also get to pick any 10 numbers from people we call and i get unlimited minutes. you cannot beat that deal!

Nice!! Glad to hear you are having a good experience with the Big Red. I am thinking about switching to Sprint to save some $$. =]

@Tinkerbell may I suggest T-mobile instead? The speedtest I have in my SIG is just an example of the 3G speeds that you'll see , that's better than sprint 4G and better than sprint 3G speeds will ever be. Plus T-mobile also has better signal quality (different than strength) than sprint does. For example with sprint my Rx Power would always hover between -91dbm and -104dbm with 2-4 bars of strength. On T-mobile my Rx Power is -83 to -90dbm on 0 to 3 bars of 3G in my house all this and I'm paying $85 a month (after student rate discount) for 10GB of 4G data and unlimited 3G data (according to the rep who sold me the plan),500 minutes, unlimited night and weekend minutes and unlimited texts.

Hey @eric12341! Thank you for the information! I am going to check into that!! I was thinking that when Tmobile throttled users back, they would be on the equivalent of CDMA's 1x. If the reduction in speed is 3G, then I am all for it! We don't have 4G where I live anyway!!

@Tinkerbell yea the rep told me that the speed reduction on the 10Gb plan is 3G don't know for sure as I haven't started that plan yet because my new sim has not arrived yet. Right now I'm on a prepay 5GB plan and I'm currently throttled because my sister keeps tethering her iPod. The throttled speeds I get are faster than what I got with EvDO on sprint (example of that in my SIG). I see pretty much anywhere from 154kbps to 320kbps on EDGE (2G). 2G is the speed reduction on the 2 and 5GB plans.

Every carrier has shady coverage areas every now and then,even VZ. My aunt from PA who has them told me that there were several areas in my area where she had little to no signal. T-mobile is also supposedly sending out free signal boosters that don't require a broadband connection to those who are in fringe areas.

Well thing is customer service varies from person to person. You can definitely luck out, but what sucks is when you happen to get that 1 bad CS who does somethign wrong and now you can't get your plan back lol

But to confirm..so changing minutes still lets you keep unlimited data?
