verizon? dont bet on it. bunch of money grubbing cockfaces. good call signal quality tho.
lol i just found out a 'hack' to get unlimited data for free. gonna see if this really works.
Oh good, insomnia.
Damn airport security line is literally out to the parking garage...
the reason I liked flying out of this small (not even a McDonalds) secondary terminal its that there is never a real wait, especially at 6 am.
Don't know how MDW can be so much more busy but have smoothed out the security process so much.
Remember what I said about buying a phone from a Verizon store being a dumbass move?
This worked well.
I hate phone companies and ISP's. They are all a bunch of crooks.
I've been mostly happy with AT&T for the past several years. They haven't blatantly tried to rip me off yet and I have not had an issue I had to call customer service about. I'm sure it's only a matter of time though...
if traffic is moving at a steady clip, and you still dont plan on driving any faster than the posted speed limit, GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE LEFT LANE!
I think the experience across phone carriers is about equally mediocre...you just hate whichever one fucked you last. There is some marginal difference in service area so one may be better in certain areas (so you take the one with service in your home) but most other stuff is pretty equal.
The retail stores however are all equally awful. They exist mostly to service stupid customers and have very little incentive too actually help you. You will get better service and accurate results by just using their website since you don't have to deal with the morons who work there (our pay for the overhead of the moron's wages).
Otherwise the best deals are through outside retailers..Amazon, target, even best buy. they need to somehow compete with just buying from the carrier website and they usually do it by providing better service, waiving extra fees, or using extra rebates that they submit for you (no stupid waiting for your 6th bill rebate game). Sometimes this turns into a higher cancellation fee...but how often does someone really need to break the contract?
I think the whole contract thing is such a scam. It puts a lot of strain on competition, which in turn helps the companies be mediocre. I just think for what I get through any cell phone service and what I pay doesn't make sense at all, especially with such a wide customer base. They should be spending more on Capital and less money in pockets. I would love to see where the money is really going to. I wish I had the power to haggle. For example I have an AT&T iphone in NYC and it sucks balls. I want to go to Verizon next, but I have to wait for my contract to end. I should be able to say to AT&T I will put up with your shitty service if you beat the cost of Verizon. Can't do it, its all or nothing. Plus, they decide that they are going to give customers the choice of structured data plans. 250MB, 2Gig, or Unlimited. This is bullshit, they know damn well 250MB is too low to do anything and 2Gig is too much for most people. Thanks for nothing.
Don't get me started on ISP's again... METER FUCKING INTERNET USAGE. $50 a month for internet, with no cable TV? Really????
this is a very good summation of the situation.
i have found the people at best buy near me to be the most knowledgeable and friendly so far. although there is actually a verizon store not to far from me that has a few decent employees that have helped me out once or twice. all the others i have been to were absolute disasters.
lately though, i have been doing all my upgrades or changes online or over the phone direct with verizon.
i am in a foul mood. not exactly sure why, but just really pissed off right now. it sucks.
verizon fucking sucks. their 4g network is down today. second time in a WEEK. not to mention, it won't let me change my plan online, forcing me to call them and be placed on hold for 15 minutes. back at ATT, I could easily change my plan online with a few simple clicks.
starting to miss att
edit: at least i got my unlimited data 'hack' to work. screw you verizon!
double edit: wow... no wonder my bill is so fucking high. THEY'RE CHARING ME FOR TWO PHONE LINES: my number and the wrong number they put in while porting my ATT number! what a bunch of fuck ups seriously jesus christ
I am hurt and can't run. Running is a big outlet for me. Compulsive behaviors (eg spending/gambling) have skyrocketed. Appetite is gone until 5 pm. I am grumpy despite having a lot of other shit going my way.
Your travails with Verizon are bringing me some measure of happiness. Not because I wish you ill, but because my ex-girlfriend used to hound me constantly about changing from Sprint to Verizon. She insisted that Verizon was a beacon of goodness and virtue in the otherwise sordid world of phone companies. I now feel vindicated.
Link to unlimited data hack por favor.
