    It will be interesting how they handle this. It is verizon after all, the company known for doing things their own way no matter what consumers or other companies think.

    its verizon.... you can pretty much predict whats going to happen.... Prices soar! more people lose money.... service great but you cant do anything with out paying a nice premium..... you know the usual Verizon policy: If you dont like what you have, then pay us more.

    I wouldn't mind paying more, if it wasn't so pricing to begin with or if I made more money. So I guess it is my fault. LOL
