    I've been with Verizon for years and hands down some of the best customer service I've ever had. I have a Droid Incredible (since I can't bring myself to go to AT&T for the iPhone, no matter how bad I want it). AT&T service just has too many bad areas around where I'm at. New Android software update is supposed to be adding a wifi hotspot option to my phone, so voila, internet service for my wifi iPad on the road.

    You can get internet service via WiFi hotspot for free with your HTC DI instead.

    I've heard the solid root finally came out. I'm still thinking about it, haven't decided for sure. But may do it. Froyo is adding wifi hotspot to the system and Ii'm using PDANet to wifi tether now. I have a feeling if Verizon tries crippling wifi tether, PDANet should be around it quickly. Worst case, I might go ahead and do the root. Going to try to wait for the Froyo to drop first before digging into it. I can just see tearing the programming on my phone up. LOL

    Watching that video was a bad thing. Making me want to tinker again.

    The Incredible is a good phone. I really like it. Takes some getting used to and it will chew up batteries if you're not careful.

    After watching that root video, I may do that before the update drops. REALLY tempting. Either way, its great to see I made the right decision not ordering the 3G iPad. I just couldn't find a reason to have two data plans when I already have the Verizon data in place.

    I too have been a Verizon customer for years as they are the monopoly provider in my area. They really don't give a rat's azz.. They will con and game you with 'new business services' and then break them into pieces so you have a multi-statge contract obligation.

    When you call to see when these stages are complete, they bring out the; "I can give you a better rate." scheme. They could have simply sent me a note: "You've been with us for over 20yrs .. so here's a bonus for being a good customer." .. eh-eh. They know that a slow, reverse drip from your bank to theirs is best for the shareholders and the guys in the corner offices. I don't give a sh/t how nice the person is on the phone, it's the actual service that I am paying for.


    Verizon also will not upgrade any of their lines, unless they stand to loose a customer to cable, etc. I'm on a rural road with a very favorable, economic demographic, they still only provide 1950's era services.

    The minute I am confident I can delete the landline - Verizon is outta here.

    ...and I would bet when he walks into the NYAC he struts as if he's really worth it: "Ivan Seidenberg’s $20.2 million (2008) compensation is down slightly from 2007, when he took home nearly $20.4 million." It's kinda like calories; just how much does one human need?!
