    Which history tells us will instantaneously stop once they get the iPhone. Because they're no more honorable than any telecom before them.



    Cards on the table, all party lines aside, you and me, mano a mano, straight up, no nonsense now. Do you REALLY believe they'll keep an "unlimited" plan if they get the iPhone? REALLY?

    opps I'm bad, speed test.com average is actually 29.58. If you really want I'll email you photo's. Verizon 4g/LTE handsets are no joke. I'll get an iPhone "likely" when they adapt. Good news across the boards for all carriers, you will be seeing this over the next couple of years...........eventually.



    My home internet with wi-fi on at&t? 5megabytes if I'm lucky. Would love to ditch them but they have a lockdown in the bay area. It's a shame.

    Yes they will keep the unlimited data, at least for a while or as long they can. They have no choice as the smallest of the three carriers. That is the carrot they have to try and steal customers. Sprint also has a huge amount of spectrum and unused bandwidth. Once the network vision is complete and they add all the old Nextel towers and 800MHz IDEN to CDMA it will be even better. Nothing lasts forever, but at least they honor their contracts and let you grandfather them a lot easier than other carriers do. So if you get a 2 year iPhone contract with Sprint, you can be assured you will at least have unlimited data for 2 years at a minimum.
