why do you have an account with verizon if your dad, brother, and his girlfriend are the 3 users? it still sounds to me like you don't even use verizon? if you're just the account holder but don't use any of the lines, then your dad can do an "assumption of liability." he takes over the contract and you don't have to concern yourself with it anymore.
4starcashier i hope you figure out that you are wasting your time ranting here about your bad experience with verizon. the apologists will shout you down like a yard dog. our opinion and experience means absolutely nothing to this company, and if you darre express yourself on this forum, you will be chastised to the fullest. i think that these forums should be for all of us to share experiences but as you should have noticed, the 'fixtures' here will shame you without remorse. we are all in this situation because we have let our government become operatives to large multinational corporations, so our outrage should be directed to congress and the fcc for what we have to bear.
I'm sorry, but I hate Verizon Wireless! Why?
1. They charge OUTRAGEOUS prices for their data that's overloaded and unreliable.
2. They claim they have sufficient 3G coverage, but in reality it's spotty and bounces between 2G and 3G so much that you can't use your data or mobile hotspot consistently.
3. They claim they have the best coverage around for talking, but cuts out for roaming in two separate places on my way to work (25 mile journey).
4. They lie on their coverage maps, and show no shades of signal strength like the other carriers do.
I see someone with Verizon Wireless and I scoff at them, "You have Verizon Wireless? What the F--- for?"...ESPECIALLY if they live in a city where T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T are readily available. I am speaking mostly of residents in the Omaha, Nebraska area who do not know anything else BUT Verizon. THERE ARE OTHER CARRIERS OUT THERE! USE THEM, PLEASE! YOU WILL RECEIVE BETTER SERVICE!
If I could, I would picket in front of Verizon Wireless stores telling people to choose another carrier and claim how bad their service is.
I only have Verizon Wireless (me and my boyfriend PROUDLY use Sprint) because it's the only national carrier of choice (U.S. Cellular is only regional) that CLAIMS to work well in my hometown, and my dad, brother and his girlfriend use the phones. When the contract expires, I'm soooo outta there! Because I would rather have a carrier that roams in my town of residence than to have Verizon Wireless. Verizon sickens me to no end.
Keep in mind that I'm only speaking on behalf of their coverage, NOT their customer service associates...because out of all the hate and anger I have with Verizon Wireless, the customer service associates are kind and courteous...I just wanted to clear that up. My beef has nothing to do with them.
Does anyone else agree? I hope some people do...
1.) I pay $30 for unlimited data every month. How is that overpriced?
2.) like any carrier, there are spots where things work and things do not work.
3.) Again, it always depends on the location. In New York, there are spots that I know that do not have coverage are, I just stay away from those areas, or just know not to be on a call.
4.) Are you talking about the voice coverage or their network coverage?
I have tried other carriers, and they always end up using Verizons network, so why should I pay another company to use Verizon's network? Besides, all my friends and family have Verizon, so it makes it cheaper to use.
I have used Verizon for 20+ years, and have been pleased with everything over the years.
