    Switching from what? I personally feel Verizon is the devil.

    What are your needs for cell service...do you travel much or mainly local?

    Well my GF has Verizon from her company and suggested I switch because mobile to mobile is free of charge. However I can't seem to find a similar plan to wot I have now w/o paying a ton. So I'm not going to save any money there. Another con of Verizon is the roaming charge. I do quite a bit of traveling and @ .69/min, just unacceptible.

    I currently have T-Mobile and have been happy w/ their service, no complaints here. However she now lives 1700+ miles away so we do a lot of talking on the phone.

    Cool
    I have Verizon wireless. There are plans with free long distance minutes. I have not had any problems with Verizon.

    I believe they are the devil when it comes to DSL though.

    i've had verizon / bell atlantic since 1995 and the service in my state has improved dramatically, they are basically becoming a M$ but their service is the best around here. Their CS is terrible as every rep tells you something wrong or different. I have a Moto v710 that works like a charm and i use it with my iBook as a modem, i just wish Verizon would like data transfers happen for the v710 but they say they will lose money because people would be transfering pics off the cell to their computer, whatever...

    if I had t-Mobile I'd get that sony erricson phone but t-mobile is not very good in my state....

    Well the company pays her Verizon mobile service so it's out of the question for her to switch. I did see the free long distance plans, however I'll be getting half the minutes I get now for the same price, plus a ridiculous charge on roaming and since I travel a bit that's unacceptible.

    All in all I feel switching will end up costing me more money whereas she feels I'll save. I think I need to throw together a slideshow presentation for her to break it down. Then again she'll feel insulted and thus it's a lose/lose situation. Ya just can't please women. :bomb:

    Heh, very true rman! But the discrepancy is that she wants me to switch because she says it will save ME money! Well I wont bring it up to her if you dont. I think I'll stick w/ T-Mobile.

    Like you said, if it does not say you money and you like your current plan. It seems there is no choice there.

    Saling Clicker and Buddy Pop? Are they apps native to the Sony Ericson line?

    no, but buddy pop is cool, it syncs ichat, and address book with saling clicker, itll even display the picture of the person calling and does all sorts of cool stuff.

    You never know until you talk to her.

    ::goes back on topic::

    My brother and mom have T-Mobile. I once used one of their cell phones to make a call, and the reception was really good.

    One of my friends has Verizon, and I've noticed that the reception on her cell phone is a little fuzzy.

    I also have a v710! I got it the day it came out. As for service, Verizon has the best and none of the company's can compete. I use to have att (8 months ago) and it was horrible. My uncle just moved from orange county (he has cingular) to San Diego (moved the biz closer to my dad cause hes the president now) and he cant get service in his house or the office so he just got a new blackberry from Verizon. Verizon is the best even though I admit that its totally retarded that they make you use their get it now service... but its totally worth it.:teen:
