Verizon is the only company raising the price bar, the 1ghz single core Thunderbolt (which I do actually own) is $249.99 because it's on Verizon, whereas the 4G, dual core, 3D next gen EVO 3D is only $199.99. Verizon is the most overpriced carrier! They have the most expensive talk plans, the worst data plans available, and then standard texting plans (which are still ridiculous) which they have yet jack up recently, so who knows, and on top of that, the most expensive, least innovative hardware.

Verizon has to cover the cost of union thuggery.

LOL

I think you mean they have to give their employees fair wages and benefits.

And that's Verizon, as in landlines and FIOS, not Verizon Wireless, so keep the naive teabagger comments where they're at least remotely relevant.

Easy there stealth, I know it's simple being a tough guy on the internet...but ease up

Besides, thanks to the blackberry bold launching today on sprint, even the budget carriers can charge $250 for their top models. I also believe the Epic launched a year ago this month with a $250 price tag

The LTE chip actually makes the phones considerably more expensive. Still doesn't excuse Verizon and every other carrier for not giving away every phone on contract.
