Default Verizon - plans grandfathered, not "features"

I had a conversation with Verizon twice today. One was about the
Blackberry Storm and how much it would cost to run. The other was with a
local rep about the Alltel takeover and our grandfathered, beloved Alltel
plans.

His statement to me was MOST disturbing when I pointed out I bought
UNLIMITED data tethering from my Motorola ROKR Z6m to my Nokia N800 Linux
tablet computer for $25/mo.

He pointed out this WASN'T PART OF MY PLAN but was a FEATURE and was NOT
covered in the grandfathering when Verizon takes over in January!

So, be prepared to lose your data tethering in January when the Verizon
*******s suck up our company into their sellphone monopoly. They want $60
for 5GB tethered.

Nuts.....screwed again!

Those Jew investors that sold us out should be HUNG!

Relax your Sphincter Larry (not that it's possible). Again you are
misconstruing the situation.

NOBODY in the rank and file in either Alltel OR Verizon knows how
these details are going to shake out. So listening to a rep and
taking it for gospel...at best it's premature and at this point is
nothing but heresay.

Of course I would expect you to get all excited about something as
insipid as this...........somebody like you who gets hit in the head
with a raindrop then immediately starts running around yelling about
the sky falling and we're all going to die............................

It's about a month and a half until V-day. Isn't it about time someone
knew something so the screwed customers can make other plans?

As it stands, right now, if my current delivery and pricing including
unlimited data service for $25, is discarded, I have a broken contract
and will simply move off to VoIP, specifically Skype with unlimited
phone coverage and two landline numbers in two countries for about
$80/year with full voicemail. Callers will just have to wait for wifi
access, which is VERY well covered in Charleston, SC, with extreme
competition amoung restaurants, hotels, motels, etc.....more every day.

I become less and less a sellular slave each month.... I'd like to keep
the service, but to pay verizon's usury prices for so little actual
service isn't really worth it. If I cannot have a reasonable data plan
at a reasonable price, I'll move off to Cricket's $35 unlimited phone
plan...which is on Verizon, anyway, without the hundred bucks a month
nationwide service most people don't want and don't need, forced upon
them.

Cricket costs money to use in the country....on Verizon/Alltel CDMA, but
it does work and 99% of my calls are in the city...where the
$35/unlimited works great on the same footprint.

Why not just come clean and tell us what they are going to do to us and
what they are not going to do to us? Why just, as you are doing, sit
like passive sheeple and take it up the ass, no matter what that is??
That's just stupid!

Just wondering, Larry. When you go into a restaurant that offers an
"all you can eat" buffet, do you take it as a personal challenge?

You guys do a wonderful job! Keep up the good work! Two Yuppettes were
shopping. When they started to discuss their home lives, one
said,"Seems like all Alfred and I do anymore is fight. I've been so
upset I've lost 20 pounds." "Bobby have a pair of 'Air Jordans'
(http://www.oknike.com/) shoes, I have Air Jordans do you have Air
Jordans too? ""Why don't you just leave him then?" asked her
friend."Oh! Not yet." the first replied, "I'd like to lose at least
another fifteen pounds first." via 'www.oknike.com'

What four animals does a woman like to have in her house? A tiger in
bed, a mink in her closet, a jaguar in her garage and a jackass to pay
for it all.------ Jacky ('jordans' (http://www.oknike.com)).
