Bottom line, go to Sprint, go to AT&T, hell get a TracFone if you have to, but stay far away from Verizon. You will be screwed over just as I was!
Edit- Here's the basic gist of what happened to me so you'll understand. The sales boy lied about what the wireless broadband service cost, my first bill was way overbloated and had a $5 dollar late charge (really on the 1st bill!?), then charged me an arm and a leg to turn off, when I told them I could only afford to pay them a small amount every month they refused to accept that, proceeded to turn my cell phone off because I wouldn't talk to them (even though my cell phone is is on my Mom's account), and forced me to pay them $300 dollars I didn't have. So do you see why I wish nothing but ill-will upon them.
Bottom line, if you like being screwed over then Verizon is the perfect company for you. All others should avoid like the plague!
