    I'm tired of getting my anus raped by Verizon every month. I talk on my non-work phone maybe 2 hours total a month... Yet I'm still paying triple digits every month.

    Im also interested in getting a hotspot for my Tablet ..does straight talk work well with this feature ??

    USA, number one !!! Al Salam Alaikum

    So, in other words, this ad is intentionally deceptive?

    They will cut your speed just like the big carriers. I think you'll get a solid 3Gb though.

    Try Tmobile if they have a good signal in your area...verizon was raping me....No doubt their signal was better. But I'm paying half to Tmobile for unlimited everything

    Verizon rapes me too but their signal and service is good in my area. I've got no complaints, except the price.

    I have boost. If you pay on time 24 months in a row it gets down to 35 a month. Sprint network.

    I have a friend who still gets the Verizon discount even though he hasn't worked for them for a couple of years.

    I have Straight Talk. I was paying Verizon through the yang for a Blackberry with prehistoric technology. Straight Talk in my area is on ATT towers, so it has solid coverage. My phone bill is at least a third of what it once was. The phone itself blows goats, but I think they have better ones available now.

    I visited my folkes recently and my 80+ year old step dad tried to switch from his $100+ Verizon home phone bill to Vontage. I have spent hours trying to make this happen but apparently Verizon wont release their phone number and Ive tried 3 times to make it happen. Vontage sends a recorded message saying that Verizon wont release their home phone number and that I should call some fucking number to remedy the shit....same number- same recording each time.
    Anyway, the old man gave them permission to do an automatic withdrawal from his account and Vontage has been reaming him for months without even giving their service.
