    I agree I think I might move to Att after my lines come off contract in the next 6-9 months if Verizon doesn't offer a similar deal when you are off contract

    Yeah they are lagging behind all the carriers and now they are offering Free activation and just launched this "Smart Rewards" program. Just a big slap in the face at this point and I'm looking to do the same this is no where near good enough.

    I recalled when un-carrier started, Verizon said they will not compete since their coverage will speak for itself. Translation, our customers will pay whatever prices we tell them to pay.

    Maybe true, but now with t-mobile paying ETF's people who are willing to try have nothing to loose. Also it's still surprising Verizon has not copied ATT's motions either.

    My service has been stellar with verizon however with 3 of my 4 lines ending contracts in July -they better have something because $45 is a nice discount.

    16 years with sprint taught me never be loyal to a carrier.

    I read somewhere Verizon wasn't affected with TMobile Un Carrier move but I wonder now that they paying efts how that will work out lastly if Att started paying efts for Verizon I would be on it the first day.

    All lines are off contract, 4 iPhones, with the talk and text discount with unlimited data. No way would I move from verizon.

    You can use T-Mobile to pay your ETF and then move to AT&T, unless T-Mobile has poor coverage where you are.

    Of course Verizon are not affected, existing customers are gladly willing to pad their pockets. I remember reading an article saying Verizon customers pays the highest monthly bills out of all the four major carriers. It's highly unlikely they will have any out of contract discounts considering more subscribers signed up for them last quarter. Verizon market themselves as a premium service, like Apple do.

    By the same token, Like T-Mobile, VZW added 1.4 million customers so they must be doing something right.

    I'm a VZW customer and I'm curious about this smart rewards. I'll have to read up on it more.

    I just saw a comparison of 4 lines where ATT was more expensive than verizon. There are do many variables a blanket statement like verizon is more expensive than ATT doesn't hold water.

    I'm a customer that will never leave them as I am grandfathered into a cheap plan with unlimited data on my 5s.

    This was based on a survey.

    The keyword is "grandfathered". When comparing the costs of the carriers they go based off the current plans that are offered to new customers. Not grandfathered plans or any plans with special discounts or perks. So by that metric, Verizon is the most expensive carrier. Though AT&T is extremely close in price to the point where it's almost negligible anyway.

    Right, but when you get right down to costing a specific plan for a family, it could swing either way as in the comparison I just read. In the end do YOU care about some aggregated statistic or what you actually pay for a plan on a specific carrier?

    Yep, i am lucky, although ive been with verizon for 15 years. Imo, you get what you pay for in coverage.

    I wonder when this will be availiable in NYC. Doesn't look so bad since I pay for example all my bills online :)

    It's pathetic the fact the they only have the program in a few states.
