    One of the things I'm happy about is how the bill is under my control. When I first got my Droid, my bill was $70 pr/mo. One device, very low usage.

    Life changes. I added a second line and a second Droid so that I could talk to my sons in Ohio. I bought insurance for both devices and Lookout for both devices.

    Then I got a new job which requires me to travel a lot. I upped the data usage to account for the GPS navigator, portable internet hotspot (which is how I'm making this post from my PC), Netflix, and similar.

    I make my bill in a day, so it's well worth it.

    Everyone's bills are under their control regardless of what one earns...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Those are detached points. My control over the bill, and cost/benefit.

    I can tap a button and make absolutely any change to my service, right now. I don't have to call and talk to anyone. I don't have to change the contract. If I want to let my son in Ohio download a few games, I can quickly unlock that feature for his phone while we talk, he can get his game, and I can re-lock that feature. If we're having a slow week because of weather and I want to play some games or watch movies on those extra days off, I can up my data instantly. When work picks up, I can reduce my data back. That's the kind of control I'm talking about.

    Cost/benefit: The cheaper plan you're looking at does not do what I need it to do.

    Verizon has about 500 markets, the first high-speed cell network to cross the country. I'm happy paying more today for superior service today. I travel a lot and that's important. If you stay fairly local, that post-merger Sprint deal may work for you.
    Same. I tried Sprint once. Had to lay the phone down on my middle couch cushion to get 1 bar. If I picked it up to put it at my ear, the 1 bar went away.

    I have absolutely no issue paying what I pay, because I know that no matter where I go, I will have a good, strong signal. I could count on 1 hand the times in the last 7 years that I've had Verizon and not had a signal, and every single time was in the middle of the Okefenokee Swamp.

    Cheap cell service is worthless if you never have a good signal.

    I don't have the need to control the service of anyone else, and what makes you think I can't change my plan as necessary on the fly?

    Virgin Mobile's basic “Beyond Talk” plan—$35/month for up to 300 minutes of voice (which I never come anywhere near using), and “unlimited” texts and data (though supposedly the data will be “throttled” to a lower speed if I go over 2 gigabytes in a month (I've never come anywhere close to reaching this limit). An additional $5/month for insurance on my phone itself brings the total to $40. My wife also has the same phone, on the same plan, so for the two of us, it comes to $80/month. Each of us has an independent account, not linked in any way to the other.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Well, I do, because those "anyone else" are my minor children.

    I never said you couldn't. I said I was happy that I could.

    Here's the post:

    Where in that post did I say anything about what you could or could not do?

    Around $ 8-10.
    I don't talk too much on the phone.
