    Cool. Verizon has the best CDMA speeds and coverage and Leap should be worried some...especially if Verizon allows users to put smartphones on the plans and has no throttling.

    I was thinking about switching but read some more on the topic. They only offer a few phones and they are all feature phones. No saxophones. That's why leap it's not worried because for $5 more with them you can get an android.

    I meant smartphones.

    The stupid autocorrect on my phone likes to change my misspelled words into completely different words.

    I thought saxophones was cool, but wonder if Verizon will allow users to bring their own Verizon smartphones or they just won't support them at all.

    I don't think we'll see $50 unlimited everything on Verizon without throttling on a smartphone anytime soon, because then who would want to get their contract plans?

    Good point. Because then everybody with a contract would just switch to this plan when their 2 years are up instead of renewing it.

    I looked at things this morning after talking to a Verizon rep at the store near my work. The 50 plan is NOT for smartphones, just web enabled phones. The 1 Android they carry is ONLY available online, and that costs 195.00. The prepaid plan for that phone is 95 a month for unlimited talk and text, PLUS a mandatory 30.00 data plan. So to sum up, 125.00 a month, PER LINE, and only 1 sub-par phone (Citurs). This is a fing joke right??

    Wow! I guess they just want to pick up some new customers through the prepaid channel, specifically non smartphone users. Then, pull them over to the postpaid side into the expensive data plans. Draw them in slowly!
