While on Twitter a Verizon Support representative challenged me to give Vzw another shot at my business. I guess the term "Blood letting" caught their eye.
Previously as a Verizon customer with 2 dumb phones and one Android I was paying over $140 (that's with an 18% Corp discount).
I decided to cut ties with Vzw and go PrePaid with another company. $45 per line unlimited Voice, Text & Data* (there is an undocumented 2Gig cap on data with it dropping to 1G speeds after that). So I now have 3 Smartphones for $135 and no contract.
I take up the challenge from the Vzw Support rep and go online. I have a chat session with a very nice gentleman, "Your RealTime session ID is RT27255109923" There he tells me that for a 4Gig data plan I will pay Verizon $190/mth (plus other fees and taxes). I think my pocket deserves the extra $70/mth more than Verizon.
Sorry Big Red, but that's a FAIL. But I did try.
