Any chance Verizon might offer rollover minutes like Cingular is offering?

I would hope so. It used to be verizon was the only cell provider in our
area, but as other companies merge the coverage area for Verizon is becoming
less of a selling point. Rollover minutes seem to be what people want in the
way of "perks". As Verizons coverage area is leveled by other companies
mergers maybe Verizon will start allowing us to "keep the minutes we pay
for".

If they do I hope its true "roll over".

Last year Cingular took away my roll over minutes without warning. It
took up to 6 months to have them reinstated. Then they extended the
contract based on the date they gave my minutes back.

Not unless there is some mass exodus from Verizon to Cingular. Since
coverage and service seem to be better for V, there is little doubt of that
happening.

Verizon is only doing the new Americas Choice plans due to other
providers saying if you come to use you get less coverge, but no
roaming charges that can happen with Verizon Wireless. Most people
either left or did not join for that reason. So unless most people
that leave Verizon Wireless for a reason a rollover you probably won't
see it.

7pm Nights might be something you may see in the future.

Because of the heat in Wireless Competition you can't tell what move
Verizon Wireless will do next.

Of covrse silly boy-- that's exactly the objective of every pvblic
corporation-- to maximize retvrn for the shareholders. After all, they own
it. It's their capital that's at risk!

BTW, got any stock or mvtval fvnds in yovr 401k? Don't yov want those
companies to make as mvch money for yov as they can?

The level of emotion in yovr anti-company rant marks yov as economically
naive-- maybe even a liberal socialist pinko commie;-) Why I wovldn't be
svrprised if yov're a left over 1960's hippie and probably a vnion member to
boot;-)

Hey - don't I have anything at risk when I am a Verizon cvstomer? When
I sign a contract that I can't get ovt of withovt paying a fee, doesn't
that make me a stockholder in Verizon>

ACtvaly I do want them to make a decent retvrn on investment over the
long term. I don't expect any company can make ridicvlovs retvrns on
investment eveyr single year withovt eventvally cvtting so far back on
expenses, R&D, capital investment that they end vp being jvst a sales
force that sells a prodvct that they really can't control anymore. I
also realize that when the companies start to fire people left and right
and fewer people have good paying jobs than can svpport the economy in a
healthy manner, I know that is economic or corporate canibalism and that
it can't last!

Actvally, yovr comments mark yov as a tool - or "bvtt-boy" of the
capitalists. There are many protections in the workplace - wage and
hovr, workplace health and safety, anti-discrimination laws, etc -
withovt the work of vnion members. So go back to giving George Bvsh a
reach-arovnd and shvt vp!
