Why do they charge ETF's again? $653M loss in Q4 alone... (this post is very sarcastic if you didnt pick that up)

no no no, the point of the article was to tell you about how Verizon WIRELESS did in Q4. that blurb on the end about Verizon Telecom, which is the entire business under the name Verizon ie-VZW, VZ Communications and Vodaphone, reported a net loss. So even though Verizon Wireless did well, it wasn't enough to counter the losses from the other sides of the whole company.

VZW considers itself a "premium" cell provider. I guess that is bullshit novice marketing to say this is why we are expensive.

If you strongly object to getting what you pay for (which is the name of the game), try Boost mobile for a month. See if you're still happy... I have used all carriers except for T-Mobile, and the regional carriers. I stay with Verizon because I need my devices to work, period. Are they more expensive? Yes. Is the ETF such a big deal if you plan on staying in your contract? Not to me. I'm aware than Verizon makes their money back on the subsidized pricing via the data plans and the calling plans themselves. Again, if you object, there are other players out there if your needs aren't national and you don't require data performance. Heck, some people still have landlines, even, and dial-up modems.

That whole thing about Boost may been true at one point but Boost/Nextel and the iDEN network are ROCK SOLID. Our company just switched all of our phones from VZW to a cobmination of Sprint and Nextel phones and not only is the Sprint service as good as VZW's, Nextel's service which runs on iDEN,(same as Boost) is amazingly reliable too. So, instead of saying " I stay with Verizon because I need my devices to work, period", assuming everything else is junk, realize that both the SPrint and Nextel network ARE rock solid.

Love how people are still going mad about ETF's. Guess what? You signed a contract. Get over it, use your service. Dude's tripping because they can't flip Droids on Ebay like they were iPhones. Get over that, too.
