    I hate Verizon. They are killing unlimited data the next time you renew your contract anyway so if I could get out of my current year and a half contract I would.

    Verizon cuts the most corners when it comes to their phone line up. If it means offering the 'best in class' phone or saving $3 on the OEM cost you can bet Verizon takes the savings. This has been the case for a long time. Look at the egg that the iPhone left on Verizon's face and the huge dent it put in their market share.

    Verizon balked at the golden goose because they view the network as the 'star' not the phones. This simply isn't the case anymore. The networks are all pretty homogenous to the consumer anymore. To many consumers the question is not about who they will buy their 'utility' from but who has the lowest prices, best customer service and hottest hardware. All areas Verizon puts very little emphasis on.
    That was all rumor and verizon has not said anything about it. I can't see them doing something like this because it would def be the final nail in the coffin for many. I know the day they try and take my unlimited data away will be the day I switch carriers. Not to mention the networks aren't close to being the same, verizon has the better network hands down, and I'm not talking about their lte network. I am pretty sure the network is a little more important than the phones since if you have no coverage the phone isn't going to work anyway.

    I can only use Verizon, cuz where I live the other carriers won't work at my house. Sprint had to send me a free Femtocell to use with my wifes phone. My POS Droid X works everywhere. But reboots several times a day. I hate it.:@

    It's good to see people here. when I checked the forums out a year ago, there was three of us here.

    Here's hoping we see another WP7 phone on Verizon. It's been a while since the Trophy and we need some LTE love. WP7's success depends on all the carriers supporting it. I have a Galaxy Nexus, but would consider switching back if we see new phones.

    We aren't killing off unlimited data. Everything you've heard about that is b.s. Today alone I probably grandfathered 10 unlimited data plans and my boss didn't say a word about it. You keep what you have, that's only fair.

    99% of the time people don't NEED unlimited and would fair just fine with 2GB (not to mention we literally make $0 in comission grandfathering people), but we keep customers happy.

    Listening to the Engadget Mobile podcast today. They mentioned that Samsung doesn't have a press event scheduled for MWC. Of the US networks, (the one other opportunity to roll out a major phone announcement) only AT&T and Sprint/Nextel are scheduled for keynotes. Something to think about.
