    I just read that sprint upped their unlimited data from $30 to $40 a month. So if anyone thinks that Verizon will have unlimited for $30 when the IPhone is released is crazy, they will either do the same or cap it like at&t did. Either way it sucks, they just keep getting more greedy every day.

    data plans are their new golden goose. Expect unlimited voice/txt for cheap and $40+ for data as standard new plans.

    You can thank obama and his FCC. They have opened the door for the carriers to charge more for those who use bandwidth.

    Expect the carriers to take advantage of it:mad:

    Hmmm, pay more for my cell data or get dragged into two wars that have killed thousands of Americans and foreign innocents. Tough call of which I'd go with.

    Lets keep the thread of topic.

    If I pay $40 for unlimited data you better believe unlimited will mean just that.

    I didn't make this post to bash Obama, this isn't about politics. I mean I know what he allowed these carriers to do but that is out of our control. I just think that it's funny that Verizon said repeatedly in their conference about how ready they were. I mean they said were ready were ready were ready about 6 times and now all of a sudden they changed their mind!! To be fair, they haven't came out with any prices yet but I think its pretty fair to assume that their will be no 30 dollar unlimited plan anymore. Obviously they weren't as ready as they thought or maybe this is why they were ready. Cut everyone's usage down to put less strain on their network. Just seems they shot their mouths off and now they can't really back up the talk.

    Exactly, Netflix will be my friend ALL day for that kind of money. I will make sure to use as much as possible, even when wifi is available. Two can play that game.

    That's unAmerican since we have an abnormal sense of entitlement.

    I remember the good ol' days (a couple years ago, lol) when I had a SERO plan from Sprint that was unlimited everything for $50/mo. Had to change to an $80/mo plan to get a newer phone because they were losing money on my account.

    Right now I am pretty satisfied with my unlimited everything plan from T-Mobile for $79.99/mo and no contract. I've been waiting to hear what Verizon's prices look like for the iPhone, but with the way things are going I think I'm going to stick with my current setup until the next gen iPhone comes out. It'd be awesome if it was unlocked for T-Mobile so I could get more consistent data.

    I think so. I personally would've stuck with them for a long time if they would've been willing to work with me on getting a new phone and keeping my plan cost low. They have been changing their customer service for the worst in my opinion, they used to be much more willing to help keep me a happy customer, but the last few months of being with them they were quite rude in the way they handled everything.

    Well they were charging everyone for 4G even if you didn't have it in your area but now everyone has the extra 10 charge for unlimited everything. Their plans crush everyone else's. Unlimited talk, data and text for 69.99. I wish someone had one that was close to that. And no t-mobile doesn't count.

    I have T-mobile and I am pretty happy with the coverage. Why don't they count?
