For some time I’ve been made fun of for refusing to part with my decidedly-not “smart” LG Remarq and for sticking to no-data phone plan. “You are overpaying for regular service, when data plans fell in price and now are in the same range as regular!” OK, I succumbed to inevitability of switching; it’s Sunday and I devoted whole morning to reconnaissance of options.
First, to Verizon: I am already a customer (Fios), so maybe they’ll get me a better deal for adding phone to my “bundle”. Right…+$75 extra a month for using one of old Droid models and 2GB!
OK, let’s look at my current Sprint. After all, I’ve been a loyal customer for 5 yrs; maybe they really do appreciate us, as they claim…
All I wanted is to get 3Gb for $30 plus free [outdated] IPhone5 w/ 2yr new plan, as they advertised in huge font on their website. After 1.5 hrs of discussion (!) I got a complete breakdown of the monthly bill: $30 (offer) + $45 for access (huh?) plus $20 for discount on phone +$15 taxes: total of $110!!!
Is this what progress looks like?!?
