    If I should be able to bring a device to Verizon LTE 700 MHz (with just a SIM), why can they get away with charging different prices for laptop ($20), tablet ($10), and camera ($5)???

    I have PAID for the data in my base plan. That is why I bought 10 GB. How I use the 10 GB should be up to me. In fact, they should be HAPPY that I want to place a laptop on my Data Share plan. But penalizing me for adding it vs a tablet, what the heck???

      Actually, a VZW rep explained this to me … the reason was “marketing”. Seems like a poor choice when you already purchased your block of data.

    Well we all know that service providers don’t care about us, but there’s one that does and they just turned a year old (I’m sensing ground floor opportunity). I just popped my simcard in my Nexus 7 LTE today and now I’m experiencing FREE mobile service on my new tablet, this is awesome. It’s cool having 2 FREE mobile simcards, one for my Nexus 7 and one for my cellphone (since I haven’t learned how to make voice calls from my Nexus 7 yet – somebody help me). There’s no reason to PAY for mobile service anymore. There’s no reason to be disgruntled (as I once was) and get ripped off by greedy service providers anymore. Simply visit and drop me a line and make the switch. Get IN, Get SOCIAL and Get FREE everbody! Enjoy!
