    I bet if I started a petition that asks Verizon to stop charging for their services, I could get more people to sign it then this one.

    Don't they already have no contract plans?

    Verizon already said they are open to it, if the customers demand it.

    I have one of the no-contract plans with AT&T. For me, it's awesome.

    I have a no contract plan with Verizon.

    Of course that's because, I signed up in 2010 and lived it out. The being grandfathered into the unlimited data is a nice perk. However, I am stuck with buying my own phone if I want to keep it.

    And you would pay the same price as people getting subsidized phone had they not changed their plans. That's not really the same thing that t-mobile is doing.

    I stayed with the unlimited plan because it's cheaper for me by about $23 a month, not necessarily because it's unlimited.

    I would sooner opt for a petition to have yearly upgrades, instead they extend it to 2 years

    If they go contractless, there would be no more reason for them to give me a free phone or special rates every couple of years. I'll stick with the contracts. If I need to change my cell phone provider more than once every 2 years, it's probably my fault.

    Yeah, part of me feels this way too.

    Not sure what to think.

    I have family who constantly seem to change providers.

    I had Sprint, then when I wanted a no contract phone, I went Boost.

    I still haven't gotten around to getting a data plan.. I guess I will one of these days..

    The phone isn't "free" anyway. The advantage to no contracts is that if you don't replace the phone in 2 years, you would pay less. I;m surprised people don't understand this.

    T-mobile has set it up so that you pay $20 a month for the iPhone for 2 years (with money upfront as well depending on the model, just like now). You are free to leave with no penalty, other than paying off the phone. After 2 years, you will be pay $20 less a month if you keep the same phone. Best of both worlds. Only pay for the phone if you need it.

    Maybe they'll go to free phones, free service, and no contracts?

    That would be great :rofl:

    Can't see it happening with VZW to be honest. The LTE network is soooooo expensive to operate and maintain. In other news the galaxy s4 is releasing on Sprint on 4/27
