Unlimted 4G Package Would be $129 ($89+29+$10)!? And Sprint is $69 for the Same!?

Can an admin PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong on this?  So, you're telling me, for the Spint's $69 unlimited talk, text and data... the Verizon equivilant would be: 

 

$89 (unlimited talk/text)

$29 (unlimited data)

$10 4G premium fee

 

$128 ON VERIZON!?  When I could just pay $69 on Sprint?  Are you guys out of your minds? 

 

I'm beyond frustrated after talking to a 611 rep today, asking her about various nickle and dime rates, comparing it to Sprint's locked in monthly rate.  With no answers other than, "Well you can upgrade to x-amount of texts" I kinda threw my hands up in the air and asked why in the hell I'm stlil with Verizon?  I reminded her of the disparity in rates, to which she replied, "Well, we're reinvesting in our 4G network."  Um... oh?  Okay then, great... passing it off to your customers is a "great" reward for loyalty... but she was nice though... isn't the "customer service" also why we love Verizon so much?  Smiling while they deliver bad news?

 

My God, this really has gotten out of hand.  I've been loyal for far too long.  They don't even give you a legacy discount or anything, everything's stock with Verizon.  I'll take a few dropped calls on Sprint rather than paying an extra $59 a month to stay on Verizon for the SAME package.

 

Again, please correct me if I'm wrong or PLEASE give me an amazing sales pitch to keep me.

 

 

 

ps, another rep told me that there's no difference in 4G and 3G speed (LOL!!), you guys might wanna get some of them up to speed a little more on the tech.

Sprint's $69 plan is NOT unlimited talk.  It is only 450 minutes.  However, Sprint does have an unlimited talk/text/data plan for $99.99/month.  But they also require a $10 'premium data' add-on fee for all 4G phones same as Verizon plans.

 

Sprint individual plan costs

$99.99  (Unlimited talk/text/data)

$10.00 (premium data)

 

$109.99 (total)

 

Please get your facts straight before you open you cheese and WHINE.

To the best of my knowledge, Verizon hasn't yet announced 4G data rates.  While I'm not shocked to see a complaint prior to actual prices being launched, it would seem to be a much better use of your time to wait until you have some FACTS to complain about.

"Please get your facts straight before you open you cheese and WHINE."

 

I CLEARLY said "Can an admin PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong on this?"  And clearly I'm wrong. 

 

Geez-us, relax dude.  Yes, Verizon's network is the best, no question, I'm just asking these questions for clarification.  You sound like a 'fan boy' though.   

 

I'll check though because this guy I work with just jumped ship and loves his service.  He told me his plan is "unlimited" across the board, which is what their commercials sound like.   

 

 

[Please keep it clean - Thanks!]

What "FACTS" am I missing?  Verizon is CRYSTAL CLEAR on their rates!  Here's the link:

What am I missing that isn't a "fact".  It's $89 for unlimited talk and text.  It's $29 for data, no matter the phone you have.  I spoke with the service rep right before I posted, which is what I was/am upset about.  She confirmed that the data would be $29 and unlimited would be $89.  The only "fact" in question is the $10 service fee... which is a strong rumor, since other carriers have it too.

I do not dispute your Verizon figures.  You state however that you could pay $69 for the equivalent with Sprint when this is totally false.  As stated, Sprint's equivalent unlimited 4G coverage is $109.99 (over a $40 difference).  Those are hard facts taken directly from the Sprint website, not rumors .

The FACTS are that Verizon has not released official information on ANY of it's 4G plans.  It is likely that voice and text pricing will stay the same, but this is not for sure.  When they release the 4G data plans, they may also require subscribers who want to use them to choose different plans for voice minutes and text messages, we have absolutely no way of knowing at this point what the exact details are.

 

We'll have some facts to evaluate once the LTE roll-out happens.

I've been debating whether i should stay with verizon or switch to sprint. However, i love the family plan with verizon because Sprint's family packages is too expensive in comparison. I think i'm gonna hold my upgrade until verizon 4g comes out. i just hope they won't make us pay any additional fee. because Sprint does charge an extra $10 on top of their unlimited date package.
