Or profit. First, they say you need data for that smartphone to work (a lie). They force an unlimited data plan on you for each smartphone. Then, when the radio technology advances to the point that you could actually use a phone, the yank the unlimited plans, and limit you to 2gb for the same price, with exhorbitant overage prices. An LTE phone can do 2gb in 2 days or less. And, if you're grandfathered in to unlimited data, we'll just throttle you after some arbitrary amount down to 2g speeds.

Then, they eliminate 1 year contracts, so you are locked into a 2 year deal if you want a subsidized phone - to cover the cost of the phone subsidy supposedly (of course, if you buy the phone at full price, you still pay the same amount monthly for the plan).

Want a family plan? Sure, we'll give you the same amount of data or voice minutes, but you'll need to pay at least $10/month more for each phone.

US carriers are scumbags.

PLZ ANSWER! Since we're on the topic of Verizon, what happened to Alltel? I used to have Alltel and now we have Verizon here in Nebraska. But, Georgia and like 9 other states still have Alltel. Will someone please give me some help on what's going on because I am so confused!

The majority of Alltel was taken over by Verizon. Due to anti trust regulatory constraints,Verizon couldn't purchase the entire network...that's what happened.

Alltel was a great network with more customizable phones! Seriously, it gets annoying sometimes!
