Because there is no money in voice or text anymore, it's all about data.[COLOR="Silver"]

I will do better than a pic, I will upload a 9 min 720p 2GB video showing my issue with verizon.

My upload speeds are not the best, so it will take a bit.

Phones right now:
Samsung galaxy S2 On At&t

Verizon galaxy S4, S3 is non active.

Can you tell me please how you are doing that without very high overage fees or throttling from ATT? Because ATT now has set throttling limits for grandfathered unlimited customers, 5gb for LTE and 3gb for non-LTE. Are you on some certain plan and/or phone to use that much data without anything happening?

I will enjoy my Verizon unlimited LTE data while I can. I sadly do expect them to remove us from it sometime this year or throttling us like ATT. I am out of contract since this month and wondering if I should renew or buy phones off-contract to keep my unlimited data?

Nerdy,
Right now there is no indication VZW will remove the unlim data plan. Hell, it took them 5 yrs to finally phase out the Altel mobile broadband unlim data and that was dine through not supporting Altel devices anymore. VZW sent out letters letting the off contract customers know.
I drink beer yes I do.

Hmm, I've used more than 60gb with Verizon and have never been throttled so far. I've been using their service since their first LTE phone, the Thunderbolt, launched in March 2011.

Here is the video showing my issue with verizon:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZYLU...hannel&list=UL

My S2 has ICS on it, so it's a bit buggy. But it was still faster than the razr by a lot.

1) It's a new video

2) I only did becuase he wanted speed test, so I gave him some.

3) your just mad that some one could have an issue with crap you have.

4) Before you ask: I have gone to both the FCC and the BBB. ( I did that yesterday and now will wait for there reply.)

Verizon is not slowing you down at all. You need to get your account rebuilt and your problems will go away. The same exact problem happened to a friend of mine who had 4 devices replaced. Now posting the same false info in every post is border line trolling and should earn you time in a corner

DONATE TO ME
I don't care if you guys disagree with me or insult or whatever you want for saying this, but you're ridiculous for using that much data on a mobile device. You are the reason carriers are switching to tiered plans, and you're the reason networks are strained and other users don't get adequate connections.

HTC Evo 4G -> HTC Evo 3D/Nexus S 4G -> Galaxy S II -> iPhone 4S -> Galaxy S II -> Galaxy Nexus -> Galaxy S3 i9300 -> Galaxy Note 2 i317 -> Galaxy Note 2 T889
